  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Amyris INC is an integrated renewable products company applying industrial synthetic biology to genetically modify microorganisms to serve as living factories. Amyris designs these microorganisms to produce defined molecules for use as renewable chemicals and transportation fuels. The Company is engaged in the development of farmesene- a molecule, which serves as the base chemical building block for a wide range of renewable products to replace existing products that are derived from petroleum, plant or animal sources and that may be of lower quality or higher price. Amyris INC is headquartered in Emeryville, CA. " (8/9/2018)
  • 2. HC Wainwright analysts commented, "Turtle Beach reported 2Q18 revenues/EBITDA of $61M/$9.8M, better than consensus of $48M/$3.1M(E) and our $48M/$3.2M(E). The strong sales performance in 2Q (up 218%) was driven by accelerating sell-through and moderate share gain. Management again attributed the outperformance to new demand created by battle royale games such as PUBG and Fortnite. Although it remains to be seen if sell- through momentum can sustain after the coming holiday season, HEAR has already gone through a meaningful transformation with a healthier balance sheet and an expanded installed headset base, both setting up the company well for long-term investments and growth. We raise our FY18 estimates and price target to $35 (was $31). Reiterate Outperform." (8/7/2018)
