10:13 EDTOCLR, FNSR, FN, JDSU, NPTN, OPLK, CIEN, EMKROptical component makers lower after Oclaro misses expectations
Several companies that make optical network components for telecom products are sinking after one of the names in the space, Oclaro (OCLR), announced on Friday night that its first quarter revenue would be lower than expected. Oclaro, which said its revenue would be below both its guidance and analysts' consensus estimates, cited "challenging market conditions" and a slower than expected ramp of its new products as two reasons for its revenue shortfall. In a note to investors earlier today, Needham analyst Alex Henderson wrote that Oclaro's problems probably aren't affecting other companies in its sector. Among other companies in the sector, Henderson expects Finisar (FNSR) to report results in-line with analysts' expectations, and believes that Fabrinet's (FN) results are likely to be consistent with its previous guidance. Needham's favorite names in the sector are Neophotonics (NPTN) and Oplink (OPLK), and it also recommends Ciena (CIEN) and Emcore (EMKR). The firm maintained a Hold rating on Oclaro, which dropped 18c, or 6.84%, to $2.45 in early trading. Meanwhile, optical component maker JDS Uniphase (JDSU) slid 3.17% to $11, Finisar lost 2.14% to $13.23, and Fabrinet retreated 3.45% to $11.20,

13:04 EDTOCLR, JDSU, FNSRFinisar retreats after analyst cuts on pricing, demand worries
Shares of optical components maker Finisar (FNSR) are falling after research firm Jefferies downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy in a note to investors today, citing pricing and demand concerns. WHAT'S NEW: After conducting checks, Jefferies analyst James Kisner wrote that Finisar is facing "brutal" prices for datacom optics, particularly in China. Prices for telecom components in North America are also challenging for Finisar, he reported. Various low-cost competitors are driving down prices for datacom optics, while AT&T (T) is trying to force optical systems vendors to cut the prices of their components by 40%, Kisner stated. Meanwhile, demand for mobile backhaul optics slowed significantly in China over the last month, and two of Finisar's customers - Cisco (CSCO) and Huawei - are exploring alternatives to Finisar's products, Kisner indicated. Additionally, Intel (INTC) and numerous start-ups may launch products that will compete with those of Finisar, potentially cutting into its market share beginning in the second half of 2015, the analyst warned. He cut his price target on the shares to $19 from $25. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Finisar slumped 5.5% to $19. Other optical components makers also dropped, with Oclaro (OCLR) falling 1% to $1.75 and JDS Uniphase (JDSU) losing 2% to $11.30.
