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 recently reported second quarter results where both revenues and earnings beat estimates but declined year-over-year. The company is hurt by decline in chip sales to GoPro. Additionally, elevated operating expenses are also a concern. Revenues from consumer applications, including sports, VR and the drone cameras continues to decline and is expected to fall further. The stock has underperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, 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." (9/6/2018)
  • 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)
