Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Dolby Laboratories stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Dolby reported solid second-quarter fiscal 2019 results, wherein both the bottom line and the top line increased year over year. Impressive market traction of Dolby Cinema technology is proving to be a major profit churner for Dolby. Moreover, the company believes that surging demand for premium viewing experiences will fuel growth for Dolby Cinema over the long haul. The company’s growth strategy stands on three pillars — advancing the science of sight and sound, providing creative solutions and delivering superior experiences. Successful execution in each of these areas has led to healthy growth over the past quarters. Increasing content and devices in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, coupled with growth in footprint of Dolby Cinema should drive business. The stock has outperformed the industry in the past year on average. However, stiff competition and fluctuation of cinema product sales pose threats to the company’s margin." (5/3/2019)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We continue our OUTPERFORM investment rating on DLB and $85 price target: While the favorable financial impact from the rollout of new technologies continues to evolve, we feel the benefits from some of them are becoming increasingly meaningful. The company’s $0.76 annual dividend provides a yield of 1.2%. The company also is active in repurchasing its shares, with over $400 million in authorization currently remaining. Management has noted that monetization benefits from its cinema sector efforts remain in early stages in terms of financial metrics. However, excitement over the early success of these initiatives has created a more optimistic view of Dolby’s potential to create renewed corporate momentum as management continues to target a return to double-digit growth.
