Needham & Company maintains a 'Hold' on JDS Uniphase (NASDAQ: JDSU).

Analyst, Alex Henderson, said, "JDSU reported solid quarter and offered inline revenue but weak margin guidance...Modest pick up in the Optical Component Sector guide and a bit of firming cited on the call could help sentiment on comps Finisar (Nasdaq: FNSR), Oclaro (Nasdaq: OCLR), and Fabrinet (NYSE: FN)...The entire debate on these shares and most of the names in the sector hinge on the CY 4Q outlook. If carriers spend what they say they are going to spend there should be a decent budget flush.

Trimming Estimates for CY2012 and CY2013: CY2012 EPS to $0.61 from $0.66, CY 2013 Revenues to $1,923 from $1,935 million; and CY 2013 EPS to $0.86 from $0.89
