NeoPhotonics (NYSE:NPTN) faces "spotty at best" demand prospects due to continuing trade war risks, says Needham.
The firm says Huawei's visibility "remains murky," and notes that Huawei is NPTN's largest customer.
Second-largest customer Ciena has demand growth that "appears to be cooling sharply" and could come in at "mid- to even low single-digit rate for the next 2-3 quarters."
Needham has a Hold rating on NeoPhotonics. The company has an Outperform average Sell Side rating.
NPTN shares are down 2.9% to $6.10.
