Needham & Company reiterated a Strong Buy rating on Inphi Corp. (NYSE: IPHI), and raised the price target to $45.00 (from $44.00), following the company's 2Q earnings report. IPHI reported revenue from continuing operations of $60.5MM, easily ahead of $57.5MM estimates. NG EPS was $0.32, including a $0.02 tax benefit, better than $0.28 estimates.

Analyst Quinn Bolton commented, "Excluding its memory business, Inphi reported betterthan-expected 2Q16 results and 3Q16 guidance driven by accelerating Y/Y growth in its core optical business that is now expected to grow ~60% Y/Y in 2016. IPHI is experiencing strength in several areas including long haul, metro, DCI, and China, with the company increasing its share for linear TIAs and drivers. The company's ColorZ DWDM system is gaining traction with evaluation demand from several cloud and system OEM customers and should contribute meaningful revenue growth in 2017/2018. With strong visibility into year-end, we reiterate our Strong Buy rating, increase our NG EPS estimates and raise our PT to $45 from $44."
