Wall Street’s Take

In the past three months, seven Wall Street analysts have issued 12-month price targets for Keysight Technologies. It is estimated that Keysight Technologies’ average price target for KEYS is $181.57. This implies a 4.8% upside.

Keysight’s skills of resilience against present supply chain issues are underestimated.

The company appears to be well-positioned than anticipated to take advantage of 5G’s strong tailwinds and the semiconductors’ strengths.
