Analysts at MKM Partners think optical communications company, Finisar (NASDAQ: FNSR), is poised to benefit from a potential telecom capex race.

"We view FNSR as a key beneficiary of the capex recovery," said analyst Michael Genovese.

"The U.S. telecom services market is becoming more competitive with significant infusions of overseas capital into Sprint (NYSE: S) and T-Mobile. This has the potential to spark something of a capex race, and we have already seen positive spending announcements from AT&T (NYSE: T), Sprint, CenturyLink (NYSE: CTL) and Deutsche Telkom. China Mobile (NYSE: CHL) has also made positive comments about its 2013 100G optical investment plans," added Genovese.

MKM maintained a Buy rating on Finisar (NASDAQ: FNSR) and raised its price target to $17.50 (from $16.00).
