Needham & Company reiterated a Buy rating on II-VI, Inc. (NASDAQ: IIVI), and raised the price target to $32.00 (from $29.00), following the company's 1Q earnings report. Revenues were up 17% y/o/y to $221.5M, toward the upper end of guidance of $210M-$225M and above consensus of $220M. EPS totaled $0.26, again at the high end of EPS guidance of $0.22-$0.27 and solidly above consensus of $0.24.

Analyst James Ricchiuti commented, "IIVI delivered a strong beat-and-raise quarterly report earlier today, paced by another stellar showing in its optical communications business. Revs came in at the upper end of guidance, as did EPS. Bookings rose 31% y/o/y, driven by a 60% increase in orders in Photonics (optical) and 17% bookings growth in Laser Solutions (industrial). The B-T-B was 1.10. Rev and EPS guidance for FQ2 was stronger-than-expected. We believe momentum in the optical communications market will remain strong over the next several quarters, providing a bridge to new growth opportunities that IIVI is targeting in its VCSEL business for consumer 3D sensing applications. We believe stepped-up investments IIVI is making in VCSELs could result in a meaningful growth catalyst in F18, which is not in our estimates. Reiterate Buy."
