iRobot raised prices to offset tariff expense, says Piper Jaffray

iRobot recently increased pricing on its higher end i7 and i7+ models to offset tariff related cost increases, but pricing for all other models appears unchanged, Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen tells investors in a research note. While the analyst remains remain upbeat on the robotic vacuum market and iRobot's execution, and believes the company experienced "exceptionally strong" holiday sales, he reiterates a Neutral rating on the shares with an $82 price target. The trade tariffs and higher price points will negatively impact profitability and/or demand, Jensen says. He believes this will lead to "somewhat cautious guidance" when iRobot reports Q4 results on February 5.

Piper expects 'impressive' Q4 from iRobot after strong holiday demand
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen believes demand for iRobot's robotic vacuums were strong once again this holiday season. As such, he anticipates the company will report "impressive" Q4 results. The new high-end i7/i7+ vacuum appears to have sold "exceptionally well" and the e5 model also likely outperformed, Jensen tells investors in a research note. The analyst, however, reiterates a Neutral rating on iRobot shares with an $82 price target. He continues to believe trade tariffs will negatively impact profitability and/or demand.

Piper sees upside to iRobot estimates in Q4, still concerned about tariffs
After conducting Black Friday channel checks, Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen continues to believe the robotic vacuum cleaner market is experiencing strong demand in North America based on out-of-stock data from several of iRobot's U.S. retail partners. Further, the analyst thinks the European market is outpacing the U.S. market and he anticipates upside to consensus estimates when iRobot reports Q4 results in early February. The analyst, however, while upbeat on the robotic vacuum market, reiterates a Neutral rating on iRobot shares with an $82 price target. A full quarter of 10% trade tariffs, which may potentially increase to 25%, will have a "significant" drag on the company's revenue growth and/or earnings in 2019, Jensen tells investors in a research note.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with 1. this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Under Armour (UA, UAA) upgraded to Overweight from Neutral at Piper Jaffray with analyst Erinn Murphy saying while the shares have moved considerably off the bottom over the last 12 months and reflect in part the company's opportunity to expand operating margin from 3.2% to low-double-digits over time, its sales opportunity remains underappreciated at current stock levels. 2. Starbucks (SBUX) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at Mizuho with analyst Jeremy Scott saying the company's earnings growth is set to accelerate. 3. Netflix (NFLX) upgraded to Buy from Underperform at Buckingham with analyst Matthew Harrigan saying he has always viewed Netflix as the continued top streaming category winner but previously was skeptical about its elevated stock price. 4. Signature Bank (SBNY) upgraded to Buy from Neutral at UBS with analyst Brock Vandervliet saying the company's net interest margin "inflection" in Q3 signals spread income growth is forthcoming. 5. iRobot (IRBT) upgraded to Buy from Hold at Canaccord with analyst Jed Dorsheimer saying he believes the company's greatest asset may lie in its network it has launched to map a user's house.
