Share on StockTwits

Zacks Investment Research downgraded shares of NIKON CORP/ADR (OTCMKTS:NINOY) from a strong-buy rating to a hold rating in a research report sent to investors on Tuesday morning, Zacks.com reports. Zacks Investment Research currently has $14.00 price objective on the stock.

According to Zacks, “Nikon’s first-quarter fiscal 2020 results were disappointing. Both earnings and revenues declined on a year-over-year basis due to weakness in Imaging Products and Precision Equipment businesses. However, semiconductor lithography business grew due to sales of new systems, including the ArF immersion systems. Although the stock has underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis, we expect it to bounce back during the rest of fiscal 2020, as semiconductor capital spending recovers.  Moreover, Nikon benefits from solid high-end camera sales, driven by the launch of ML products. Further, solid healthcare growth is expected to be driven by expanding footprints at bioscience and the ophthalmic diagnosis spaces. Nikon reiterated its fiscal 2020 guidance based on these growth factors.”
