What are analysts saying about Vuzix stock?

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

  • 1. Maxim Group analysts commented, "VUZI shares are down 9% given lower-than-expected 4Q16 revenue among other smaller items, but we believe the main focus should be on the ramp in production and beginning of the sales ramp." (3/20/2017)
  • 2. Chardan Capital analysts commented, "We expect Vuzix to point to a strong start to the year when it releases Q4 results in the next 7-10 days. The M300 has been certified by the appropriate regulatory bodies in Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia, India and New Zealand and production volumes are now shipping. Demand for the M100 remains strong, even with the M300 introduction and is a sign of little cannibalization to date. iWear should be a modest contributor, as will NRE from Toshiba from the recently inked collaboration. For 2017 we are looking for revenue of $10.2 million, starting with $1.5 million in Q1 and ending the year with $3.5 million in revenue in Q4. We have not included any contribution from Toshiba product sales, so our estimate could prove low if the Vuzix/Toshiba collaboration remains on track." (3/7/2017)
