"Both the GAAP and non-GAAP second fiscal quarter 2020 outlook below take into account the anticipated impact to the Company, based on its current estimates, of the recently announced export restrictions pertaining to Huawei and certain of its affiliates, imposed by the U.S. Department of Commerce. The Company is continuing to review and assess the impact of the export restrictions on its products and services, and is unable to predict the full impact such restrictions may have on its results of operations," the company's earnings report said. 

As a result, analysts at Oppenheimer lowered their price target to $52 from $60. Analysts at Piper Jaffray lowered their price target to $53 from $58. Analysts at B Riley lowered their price target to $60 from $65.
