What are analysts saying about Gentex stock?

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

  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gentex Corporation is an international company that provides high-quality products to the worldwide automotive industry and North American fire protection market. The Company develops, manufactures and markets proprietary electro-optic products, including interior and exterior electrochromic, automatic-dimming Night Vision Safety automotive rearview mirrors that dim in proportion to the amount of headlight glare from trailing vehicle headlamps, and an extensive line of fire protection products for commercial applications. " (1/26/2017)

  • FBR & Co analysts commented, "We recently attended CES 2017 and were introduced to several new products that we believe could present incremental growth opportunities for the company. Gentex showed several technologies at CES: a camera-based rear vision solution, a biometric driver authentication system, and a HomeLink product that provides cloud-based connectivity from car to home. We think that there are two key takeaways from these launches. (1) The company's steady transition toward more technology-driven revenue continues to be a key theme, and we think the biometric authentication system, in particular, demonstrates the team's innovative capabilities. (2) Perhaps more importantly, we believe that the camera rear-vision system validates our argument that even if exterior mirrors begin to change in their traditional sense, Gentex will still have a significant long-term growth opportunity given its interior-mirror and exterior-based content portfolio. Looking ahead, we think GNTX shares continue to be quite attractive, and we are raising our price target to $25, from $22, following positive takeaways from CES. We reiterate our Outperform rating, and we believe that given our expectation for a SAAR plateau in 2017, automotive investors should be looking at secular growth stories like Gentex." (1/13/2017)
