What are analysts saying about Vuzix stock?

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

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Vuzix Corporation designs, manufactures, and sells display devices that are worn like eyeglasses and feature built-in video screens that enable the user to view video and digital content, such as movies, computer data, the Internet or video games. It produces both monocular and binocular Video Eyewear devices. The Company focuses on consumer markets for gaming and mobile video and on rugged mobile displays for defence and industrial applications. Vuzix Corporation is based in Rochester, New York. " (5/24/2017)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "VUZI posted its first $1 million revenue quarter during 1Q17, despite production issues that slowed the manufacturing process for its newly introduced M300 smart glasses and prohibited supply from meeting demand." (5/11/2017)
  • 3. 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)
