What are Wall Street analysts saying about Ambarella stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Ambarella stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Ambarella expects the demand for security cameras with computer vision capability to continue to grow, giving it an opportunity to increase its value contribution per camera, and hence boost top-line. The company’s efforts toward expanding its reach in other markets, such as IP security, automotive, non-GoPro wearables. This will lower dependency on GoPro and drive long-term growth. Estimates have been stable lately ahead of the company’s Q3 earnings release. The company has positive record of earnings surprises in recent quarters. However, the company is hurt by decline in chip sales to GoPro. Revenues from consumer applications, including sports, VR and the drone cameras continue to decline and is expected to fall further. The company expects this trend to continue throughout fiscal 2019, thereby compelling it to provide a pessimistic fiscal 2019 guidance. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis." (11/12/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "AMBA reported in-line to better than expected F2Q19 results but F3Q19 and FY19 guidance was significantly below Street consensus estimates due to substantial Y/Y weakness in the consumer camera market and softer than expected automotive revenue in F2H19. The drone and consumer camera markets remained weak in F2Q19, offset in part by Y/Y growth in Auto and Security cameras. In the security market, CV22 solutions are to begin shipping in F1H20 and AMBA taped out a new CV SoC that targets the mainstream IP Security market. We are reducing our estimates and maintain our Hold rating due to the broad based weakness in AMBA’s consumer camera products and softer than expected FY19 Automotive revenue." (8/31/2018)
