What are Wall Street analysts saying about Iridium Communications stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Iridium Communications stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Iridium Communications Inc., formerly GHL Acquisition Corp., is a provider of mobile voice and data communications services via satellite, and the provider of mobile satellite communications services offering 100% global coverage. Iridium offers voice and data communications services to the U.S. and foreign governments, businesses, non-governmental organizations and consumers via its constellation of 66 in-orbit satellites, seven in-orbit spares and related ground infrastructure. Iridium's commercial end-user base includes the emergency services, maritime, government, utilities, oil and gas, mining, leisure, forestry, construction and transportation markets. Iridium's products and related applications are installed in unmanned aerial vehicles, helicopters, commercial aircrafts, marine vessels, and ground vehicles. " (7/27/2019)
  • 2. Northland Securities analysts commented, "We continue to believe there is still an ample amount of investor uncertainty on what each respective satellite company can or cannot do. Said another way and through our many investor / media conversations, there appears to be a lingering confusion on the difference between L- band (IRDM) and Ka (ISAT / VSAT / SES / I). As a result and for IRDM, we believe investors are mostly caught up in the early / hype / top of the cycle stage and incorrectly grouping IRDM with other true broadband / HTS Ku satellite providers. In reality and as reaffirmed with many VAR channel check calls, we believe IRDM’s Certus “Broadband” product suite is far from innovative and will be nothing more than a back-up / low ARPU service in an increasingly shrinking L-Band marketplace."
