Recent Investment Analysts’ Ratings Changes for iRobot (IRBT)

4/26/2019 – iRobot was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment … 3/19/2019 – iRobot was downgraded by analysts at Needham & Company LLC …

iRobot logoA number of firms have modified their ratings and price targets on shares of iRobot (NASDAQ: IRBT) recently:

  • 5/1/2019 – iRobot was downgraded by analysts at ValuEngine from a “buy” rating to a “hold” rating.
  • 4/26/2019 – iRobot was upgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “strong-buy” rating. They now have a $114.00 price target on the stock. According to Zacks, “Shares of iRobot have outperformed the industry in the past six months. In the first quarter of 2019, the company’s earnings of 96 cents per share surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 41.2%. Profitability in the quarter benefited from healthy sales growth and tax benefits. Strong demand for innovative home-robotic products (like Roomba e5 and of i7/i7+ Roomba), strategic marketing programs and expansion of manufacturing capabilities outside China will be beneficial for the company in the quarters ahead. In January it launched a new product, Teera, and expects to introduce two products in the second quarter. For 2019, revenues are anticipated to be within $1.28-$1.31 billion, up 17-20% year over year. Earnings are expected to be $3.15-$3.40, up from the $3.00-$3.25 projected earlier on the back of tax benefits recorded in the first quarter. Sales in the second quarter will grow in high teens.”
  • 4/24/2019 – iRobot had its “buy” rating reaffirmed by analysts at Northland Securities. They now have a $130.00 price target on the stock. They wrote, “We will update our forward estimates post earnings call scheduled for 10am EST.””
  • 4/18/2019 – iRobot had its price target raised by analysts at JPMorgan Chase & Co. from $88.00 to $100.00. They now have a “neutral” rating on the stock.
  • 4/10/2019 – iRobot was downgraded by analysts at Zacks Investment Research from a “strong-buy” rating to a “hold” rating. According to Zacks, “Over the past three months, iRobot’s shares have outperformed the industry. It believes that strong demand for innovative home-robotic products (like Roomba e5 and of i7/i7+ Roomba) and strategic marketing programs will drive its revenues in the upcoming quarters. Notably, the company anticipates generating revenues in the range of $1.28-$1.31 billion (estimating a year-over-year growth rate of 17-20%) in 2019. Moreover, greater operational efficiency and reduced corporate tax rates will likely boost its near-term profitability. However, the stock looks overvalued compared to its industry over the past three months. In addition, the company expects to incur $20 million to $25 million of tariff costs in 2019. Further, excessive business rivalry in the U.S. robotic vacuum cleaning market might hurt its revenues in the upcoming quarters.”
  • 4/9/2019 – iRobot had its “buy” rating reaffirmed by analysts at Northland Securities. They now have a $130.00 price target on the stock.
  • 3/19/2019 – iRobot was downgraded by analysts at Needham & Company LLC from a “buy” rating to a “hold” rating. They now have a $126.87 price target on the stock. They noted that the move was a valuation call. They noted that the move was a valuation call.
