What are analysts saying about IMPINJ stock?

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Impinj, Inc. is a provider of referral and information network radio frequency identification solutions to the retail, pharmaceutical, healthcare, food and beverage and other industries. The company's products include Indy Reader Chips which consists of integrated radio chips and supporting SDKs; Monza Tag Chips, which deliver memory options and extended features to RFID tags and Speedway fixed RFID readers and antennas for RFID-based information. Impinj, Inc. is based in Seattle, Washington. " (10/11/2017)
  • 2. Morgan Stanley analysts commented, "higher burden" on estimate revisions for future gains, the analyst argued. In fact, this multiple expansion now implies investors are better off finding better "opportunities to put new money to work."Math Behind The Price TargetThe analyst's $51 price target is based on a 5.5x EV/S multiple on 2018's estimates which represents an increase from his prior estimate of 4.2x. The higher multiple is justified based on how the company screens favorably versus semiconductor and software comps.Impinj is expected to grow sales at a 28-percent compounded annual growth rate through 2018, which is above the 20 percent median for growth semi comps, Hettenbach continued. The stock is also trading at a 5.8x EV to 2018 sales, also above fast-growing semiconductor peers at 4.0x, SMID cap software companies at 4.7x, and Russell 2000 companies that have an expected CAR of over 25 percent at 5.0x.Finally, investors who still insist on buying the stock may find better opportunities to do so in the future given the volatile nature of small-cap stocks.Bottom line, the analyst is bullish on the company's prospects and leadership position but investors should "want to be disciplined on valuation."
