Zacks Reiterates Neutral Rating for iRobot (IRBT)
iRobot (NASDAQ:IRBT)‘s stock had its “neutral” rating reissued by Zacks in a research note issued to investors on Tuesday. They currently have a $36.00 price objective on the stock. Zacks‘s target price indicates a potential upside of 3.75% from the stock’s previous close.
Zacks’ analyst wrote, “iRobot reported adjusted earnings of $0.21 per share, flat year over year. Revenues increased 7% year over year to $140 million due to strong sales in the Home Robots segment, which is anticipated to grow significantly in the coming quarters as well. Moreover, the company expects to benefit from its Defense and Security Robots segment too. Also, recently launched products will enable the company to generate significantly higher market share in the coming quarters. However, in spite of these factors, the company faces increasing socio-economic and foreign exchange transaction risks. At the same time, the company’s dependence on the U.S. federal government raises our concern. Based on these factors, we maintain our Neutral recommendation on the stock.”
