BofA/Merrill downgrades iRobot, cuts target to $50 from $70
BofA/Merrill analyst John Babcock downgraded iRobot to Neutral from Buy with a price target of $50, down from $70. The analyst reduced his estimates following iRobot's Q3 results and preliminary 2020 guidance. While a resolution to the U.S.-China trade situation and exemption from tariffs are potential catalysts, iRobot's earnings are sensitive to price and there could be further price adjustments over the coming quarters, Babcock tells investors in a research note.

iRobot price target lowered to $55 from $85 at Citi
Citi analyst Asiya Merchant yesterday afternoon lowered her price target for iRobot to $55 from $85 citing the company's "substantial guide down" in margin expectations. The guidance implies substantial pressures from tariffs and pressures from manufacturing diversification and heightened promotions, Merchant told investors in a research note. She keeps a Neutral rating on the shares.

iRobot checks show holiday season off to good start, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Troy Jensen recently conducted online channel checks for iRobot's Roomba and Braava collections to determine how retail sales performed following Black Friday and Cyber Monday Sales events. From these checks, the analyst believes demand for the 17/i7+, e5 and Roomba 960 exceeded expectations, but he notes that inventory levels for the s9/s9+ remained mostly unchanged. He thinks iRobot's Q4 holiday season is off to a good start. However, while Q4 is typically a "slam-dunk" quarter for the company, this year will likely be more challenging with this being the first quarter iRobot has had to battle Shark in the $300-$600 segment, Jensen tells investors in a research note. The analyst keeps a Neutral rating on iRobot shares with a $51 price target.
