What are Wall Street analysts saying about InterDigital stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about InterDigital stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Given InterDigital’s international presence, its business is exposed to macroeconomic risks. The company’s high investment in R&D projects might affect its profitability in the coming quarters. Also, the decline in return on capital despite rise in the company’s capital spending and capitalized patent costs remain a cause of concern. In the past couple of months, the analyst community has taken a bearish stance on InterDigital. Moreover, over the past year, the company has underperformed the industry on average. This apart, ongoing tensions between the United States and China due to trade restrictions imposed on the sale of communication equipment and technology solutions to Chinese firms are likely to hurt the industry's credibility and induce loss for the business. However, the company’s global footprint, diversified product portfolio and the ability to penetrate in different markets are commendable." (10/3/2018)
