Needham & Company maintained a Strong Buy rating and $50.00 price target on Lumentum Holdings (NASDAQ: LITE) after adjusting estimates. Needham increased 2017 revenues to $1,185 million from $1,162 million and EPS to $2.35 from $1.98. 2018 estimates were raises as well, with revenues to $1,320 billion from $1,299 million and EPS to $2.58 from $2.28.

Analyst Alex Henderson commented, "Telecom grew 14% Q-Q and 25% yr-yr. ROADMs increased 11% Q-Q and 184% yr-yr. 100G Data Comm grew 248% yr-yr. The bulk of Lumentum's lines are sold out well into CY17 and Lumentum is seeing demand increase at least as fast as they can increase capacity. There were two one-time items that impacted the September quarter and one that impacted the first half of the December quarter and thereby the guide. It was a defective part from a key supplier. The issue is resolved but it cost a lot of the reported upside and diminished the guide. Otherwise they were way ahead of forecast on both Reported and guidance. We are sharply increasing estimates."
