What are Wall Street analysts saying about Aquabounty Technologies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Aquabounty Technologies stock:
  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, " Second Quarter Results. An operating loss of $4.0 million fell below our estimated loss of $2.8 million, driven largely by sequential increases in G&A from $2.0 million in the first quarter to $3.1 million in the second quarter. We believe some of the increases were one time in nature, although we believe our prior OpEx estimates in advance of commercialization were too light.
     Production Schedule On Track. With AquAdvantage Salmon (AAS) in the Indiana and Rollo Bay grow out facilities, we continue to expect initial harvests by the end of 2020. A one-time harvest of conventional salmon is also expected in the third quarter of 2020. We look for a regular introduction of AAS into the grow out phase which should enable year-round harvest.
     What Is Next? With production now underway in both facilities, we believe management is focused on securing buyers for the initial harvest and making preliminary estimates on future expansion. The commercial team is being developed, highlighted by the introduction of CCO David Melbourne Jr in the quarter. We believe expansion plans will be formally announced as commercial revenues are realized and will initially be an expansion of the current Indiana facility.
     Initial AAS Buyer The Next Major Catalyst. We believe a formal announcement of the first buyers of AAS will represent a significant catalyst for the stock. With the first harvest of AAS anticipated in the third quarter of 2020, we expect buyers to commit around the Spring of 2020. We expect investors on the sideline are awaiting this announcement, and thus believe as buyers are secured and visibility of revenue is enhanced that shares will make a meaningful and sustainable movement upward."
