What are analysts saying about Microvision stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Microvision stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Microvision, Inc. develops information display and related technologies that allow electronically generated images and information to be projected onto a viewer's eye. They defined three distinct business platforms relating to the delivery of images and information in this manner: Retinal Scanning Displays, Imaging Solutions, Optical Material technology. " (8/10/2017)
  • 2. Ladenburg Thalmann Financial Services analysts commented, "We do believe that this is unrelated to the 3 LBS engines that the company has previously discussed rolling out over the next 18 months because most of the design work for those products was completed. That leads us to believe that this deal is incremental from the prior guidance which called for $30-$60 million in incremental revenues in the 18 months following the 2Q:17 release of the first new engine. The headline of the release states that this is also a supply contract. We would assume that if the product proves successful it could result in material additional revenues under a supply arrangement beginning after the development phase." (4/25/2017)
