Where Is the Rush to Buy?
Analysts as a whole like this company. Currently, Flextronics has nine buy recommendations out of 15 analysts covering the company. The stock is about even for the year, and the average analyst target price is $8.21.
It appears short-sellers missed out on this one, despite a unappealing technical chart. Short interest hardly moves the needle with only 0.8% of the float. Don't expect a short squeeze if they beat.
