JPMorgan cautious on iRobot after Shark enters robotic vacuum space

Shark officially announced its entrance into the robotic vacuum category with features that appear to match the capabilities of iRobot's Roomba 600 and 800 series, but at a lower price, JPMorgan analyst Mark Strouse tells investors in a research note. Shark's ION robot will be available at an "impressive list" of U.S. retail distribution partners, the analyst adds. He sees the new product as adding to an increasingly competitive landscape and, at a minimum, weighing on investor sentiment for iRobot. Further, ION may present a risk to what the analyst sees as elevated investor expectations for iRobot. Strouse keeps an Underweight rating on iRobot shares. The stock in midday trading is down 11%, or $11.35, to $89.52.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Koppers Holdings (KOP) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Jefferies with analyst Laurence Alexander saying shares will remain range-bound, "at best," amid "depressed" railroad spending. End market growth is unlikely to return until 2020-2021, Alexander tells investors. He lowered his price target for the shares to $40 from $48. 2. iRobot (IRBT) downgraded to Hold on valuation at Canaccord with analyst Bobby Burleson citing the 70% share appreciation year-to-date. He maintained a $90 price target saying he expects only modest upside to estimate for the rest of the year. 3. Molina Healthcare (MOH) downgraded to Sell from Hold at Stifel with analyst Thomas Carroll citing valuation and his belief that the company will have difficulty meeting the Street's expectations on margins, while investors are underestimating the risk to the company's revenues and overestimating the chances of the company selling itself in the near-term. 4. ING Group (ING) downgraded to Hold from Buy at HSBC with analyst Robin Down saying the stock is near fair value after rallying 17% over the past three months. 5. Zebra Technologies (ZBRA) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley with analyst James Faucette saying valuation is now appropriate given growth trends and debt load, which are now reflected in 2018 expectations.

On The Fly: Top five analyst actions
Catch up on today's top five analyst actions with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. GMS Inc. (GMS) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Northcoast. 2. Telecom Argentina (TEO) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at BofA/Merrill with analyst Rodrigo Villanueva citing the company's merger agreement with Cablevision Holding S.A. 3. iRobot (IRBT) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Dougherty. 4. AeroVironment (AVAV) downgraded to Neutral from Overweight at Piper Jaffray with analyst Troy saying given the "historical lumpiness" in sales for AeroVironment's commercial drone market and international opportunities, investors will be able to purchase shares at more attractive valuations in future quarters. He raised his price target for the shares to $35 from $30. 5. ShotSpotter (SSTI) initiated with an Outperform at Northland. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage.

iRobot price target raised to $92 from $68 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen raised his price target for iRobot to $92 saying the company reported "another impressive quarter with significant" revenue and earnings upside. The robotic vacuum cleaner market is "obviously inflecting" and iRobot's market share is "rapidly increasing," Jensen tells investors in a research note. The analyst remains upbeat about the company's market position but keeps a Neutral rating on the shares due to valuation.
