What are analysts saying about Sigma Designs stock?

  • 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. " (9/15/2017)
  • 2. Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "SIGM reported mixed F1Q18 results with sales in line but GM and NG EPS weaker than expected due to a lack of mobile IoT NRE revenue. The company’s SmartTV business continues to be challenged with weak customer demand and visibility hampering the F2Q18 outlook. As a result, most of SIFM’s cost cuts under its expense reduction program are aimed at the Connected SmartTV segment as management shifts its focus to invest in and prioritize its growing IoT business. The focus on IoT should yield higher growth, more stable margins and higher ROI." (6/7/2017)
