Our Bottom Line On Ciena

Whereas some firms in the communication equipment industry are either recovering or due for a correction, Ciena may not be as strong as the others in terms of longer-term growth potentials. To summarize, as of the 3rd of September 2020, we believe that at this point, Ciena is overvalued with low odds of financial turmoil within the next 2 years. Our concluding buy-or-sell advice on the company is Hold.
