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's third-quarter results hurt from continued decline in revenues from consumer applications, including sports, VR and the drone cameras. This downtrend is expected to continue. Transition of the business away from consumer electronic applications toward computer vision coupled with geopolitical and macroeconomic challenges are taking a toll on the company’s revenues. Ambarella is also hurt by decline in chip sales to GoPro. Shares have underperformed the industry on a year-todate basis. Nonetheless, 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." (12/31/2018)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "AMBA reported in-line F3Q19 revenue driven by Q/Q growth in both Security cameras. However, F4Q19 guidance fell short of expectations due to continued weakness in the consumer camera market and a seasonal decline in consumer Security cameras. SoCs secured their first four automotive design wins including one ADAS camera, two e-mirror designs and one level 4 AV short range stereo camera solution, with revenue contribution beginning in 2021-2022. CV22 will begin shipping to one security camera OEM in F4Q19 while most of the top 10 security camera OEMs will launch CV22-based cameras before the end of 2019. While we are encouraged by AMBA’s CV design wins, we are reducing estimates and will monitor AMBA for an opportunity to get more positive." (11/30/2018)
