“We expect Sumitomo Electric’s return improvement will take time due to slow business mix improvement,” Ryo Harada, analyst at Goldman Sachs Japan, said in a June 30 report. “We will take a ‘wait-and-see’ approach until management’s messaging on reorganization becomes clearer.”
The analyst team downgraded Meidensha to Sell from a previous rating of Neutral.
“For Meidensha, we believe returns will not improve due to the capital-intensive xEV motor/invetor business, and as a result we don’t expect the market to focus on this name,” the report said.
