What are Wall Street analysts saying about iRobot stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about iRobot stock: 1. 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) 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "iRobot reported better-than-expected first-quarter 2018 results. Quarterly adjusted earnings of 66 cents per share surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 32%. The upside stemmed from sturdy demand for home-robotic products and the Robopolis acquisition. iRobot believes the ongoing marketing programs will continue to drive its revenue growth in the upcoming quarters. However, over the last three months, iRobot’s stock has underperformed and looks overvalued compared to the industry. Lingering headwinds such as stiff rivalry in the U.S. robotic vacuum cleaning market or a sudden supply chain issue might hurt the company’s revenues and profitability in the quarters ahead."
