Needham & Company reiterated a Hold rating on Viavi Solutions (NASDAQ: VIAV) following the company's analyst day. Viavi offered caution on the outlook for Service Provider spending and expects softness in CY2H16 spending.

Analyst Alex Henderson commented, "We like the new Viavi management team. We like the strategy. We love the detail. But we think VIAV shares are fairly valued. Viavi likely to reach $0.50-$55 by FY19 putting these shares at 14.5x P/E and 11.5x EV/E. For a company with low to mid single growth this seems reasonable particularly given the decline in Revenues expected over the next two years. Opportunities in Smart Phones and auto paints may offer upside as could acquisitions. We remain at a Hold."
