Zacks Investment Research Upgrades Nikon Corp. (NINOY) to Hold

Nikon Corp. (OTCMKTS:NINOY) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating in a report issued on Monday.

According to Zacks, “Nikon’s growth blueprint is based on four initiatives — a merger & acquisition program, research & development program, human resource program and cost-reduction program. Nikon’s recent restructuring initiatives with respect to its business segments will also facilitate collaboration and streamline operations. Also, the company is undertaking a number of initiatives on stabilizing the key financials of its core business areas including Precision Equipment and Imaging Products to fuel growth. However, prolonged softness in the Semiconductor Lithography business as well as poor performance from Imaging Products Business and Precision Equipment Business remain headwinds. Also, high R&D expenditure and investments related to the medical business are escalating the company’s operational costs, thus putting pressure on margins. Over the past year, Nikon’s shares have underperformed the industry's average.”

Separately, ValuEngine downgraded Nikon Corp. from a “buy” rating to a “hold” rating in a report on Friday, August 4th.

Shares of Nikon Corp. (OTCMKTS NINOY) opened at $20.52 on Monday. Nikon Corp. has a twelve month low of $13.95 and a twelve month high of $20.83. The company has a market capitalization of $8,150.00, a PE ratio of 19.50 and a beta of 0.46. The company has a debt-to-equity ratio of 0.21, a current ratio of 2.00 and a quick ratio of 1.30.
