iRobot suffering after onslaught of SharkNinja cheaper models, Barron's says

In a follow up story, Barron's notes that as it warned in July, iRobot's Roomba robot vacuum now has a "formidable" new rival, with the recent introduction of cheaper products from SharkNinja. While IRobot has maintained a commanding share of the product category it pioneered, aggressive marketing, broad sales distribution, and value-priced products have quickly won SharkNinja a hunk of the market for conventional vacuum cleaners, the publication adds.Reference Link

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.

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.

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.

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.
