Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW)
Shares of Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) dipped -2.32% and closed at $18.09 in the last trading session. The last trading range of the stock ranges between $18.07and $18.32.
Corning (GLW) stock was downgraded to neutral from overweight at JPMorgan on Thursday. The firm lowered its price target on the stock to $18 from $20.
The firm downgraded Corning over a weak macroeconomic environment that is driving lower-than-predictable TV shipments.
The Corning, NY-based company manufactures keystone components that enable systems for consumer electronics, mobile emissions control, optical communications and life sciences.
LCD TV shipments are predictable to decline 2% year-over-year in 2016, contrast to a 7% year-over-year improvement in 2015, JPMorgan added.
By the end of next year, depending on the macro situation, we believe consumer demand for 4K TVs is likely to be strong, JPMorgan said. However, with China and Europe flagging and the U.S. not looking particularly strong either we suspect that investors can wait longer before deciding to own stocks exposed to 4K penetration growth.
