What are Wall Street analysts saying about iRobot stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about iRobot stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Over the past six months, iRobit’s shares have outperformed the industry. The company’s third-quarter 2018 adjusted earnings came in at $1.12 per share, remarkably outpacing the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 44 cents, as well as came in higher than  the year-ago tally of 76 cents per share. iRobot believes stronger demand for innovative home-robotic products and marketing programswill continue to drive its revenues and profitability in the upcoming quarters. However, the 10% tariff imposed on China-manufactured robotic vacuums might impose near-term cost pressure on iRobot. Also, business rivalry within the U.S. robotic vacuum cleaning market remains a cause of concern." (10/29/2018)
  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We hosted IRBT CEO in Boston. Today’s presentation highlighted the still largely underpenetrated nature of the company’s core robotic vacuum market and Roomba’s continued leadership within that space despite the competitive threats that have entered the market over the past few years. We maintain our $80 price target and remain on the sidelines with the stock until a clearer picture of IRBT’s new product road map emerges given the dependence on new product contributions in guidance." (8/10/2018)
