M. Corey Goldman

plunged nearly 25% on Friday after the optical communications equipment maker received a downgrade from an analyst at MKM Partners, who cited increased uncertainty relative to the company's largest customer, Huawei. NeoPhotonics stock was down 24.67% to $3.42 on the Nasdaq Stock Market after MKM Partners analyst Michael Genovese cut his rating on the company to neutral from buy and slashed his price target in half - to $4.50 from $9 - noting that Huawei accounted for almost half of NeoPhotonics' sales in 2018.
