What are analysts saying about Daktronics stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Daktronics stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Daktronics Inc. has strong leadership positions in, and is one of the world's largest suppliers of, electronic scoreboards, computer-programmable displays, and large screen video displays and control systems. The company excels in the control of large display systems, including those that require integration of multiple complex displays showing real-time information, graphics, animation and video. Daktronics designs, manufactures, markets and services display systems for customers around the world in sport, business and transportation applications. " (8/24/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "DAKT posted disappointing results for the seasonally weak FQ3, with revs coming in 7% below our est. The rev shortfall resulted in weaker gross margins, leading to a larger seasonal loss. Orders increased 23% y/o/y, led by 20% growth in Live Events and a solid q/o/q and y/o/y rebound in the International business. The book-to-bill was 1.24. Mgmt guided to slight y/o/y growth compared with our expectations of low double-digit growth. The selloff in the shares today resulting from the disappointing print and guide appears overdone, in our view, particularly in light of the continued solid bookings and reasonably healthy underlying demand. With the shares trading at 0.5x EV/out-year revs and 7x adjusted EBITDA and DAKT shares offering a 3% dividend yield, we believe there is solid value at current levels. Maintain Buy." (2/21/2017)
