What are Wall Street analysts saying about Immersion stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Immersion stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "IMMERSION CORP. develops hardware and software technologies that enable users to interact with computers using their sense of touch. Their patented technologies, which are branded TouchSense, enable devices such as mice, joysticks, knobs, and medical simulation products to deliver tactile sensations that correspond to on-screen events. They focus on four application areas: computing and entertainment, medical simulation, professional and industrial, and three-dimensional capture and interaction. " (10/3/2018)
  • 2. B. Riley analysts commented, "We model Q3 revenue and EBITDA of $7.3MM and $(9.6MM), in line with consensus revenue but below consensus EBITDA of $(8.5MM), respectively. We believe near-term operations likely remained challenging after the $8MM cut to 2017 revenue guidance last quarter (now $30MM-$34MM) after an unfavorable arbitration decision with Sony (U.S.) regarding the sale of DS4 wireless controllers. Recall, IMMR already has a full plate now that it has filed complaints against Apple (AAPL), Samsung, Motorola, and Fitbit (FIT), which will require a significant amount of capital ($21MM-$24MM of anticipated litigation spend this year—largely 1H weighted) and management time. However, management is confident it has the wherewithal to pursue multiple alleged infringers." (10/30/2017)
