  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sigma Designs, Inc designs, manufactures (using subcontractors) and markets multimedia products for use with personal computers. Through their REALmagic product line incorporating Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) technology, they has become a leader in this emerging market. " (5/10/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "SIGM reported better than expected NG EPS and GM in F3Q17 but provided a disappointing F4Q17 outlook. Intensifying competition in the TV segment has forced the company to prioritize GM over revenue growth in this segment. With growth stalling in the TV business, we are forced to dramatically reduce our forward estimates. We now believe SIGM will show no revenue growth and operate at best at breakeven profitability in FY18. With no clear path that we can see to sustainable and profitable growth, we downgrade SIGM to Hold." (12/7/2016)
