Share on StockTwits

Northland Securities reiterated their buy rating on shares of Ambarella (NASDAQ:AMBA) in a research note issued to investors on Monday, AnalystRatings.com reports. They currently have a $45.00 price target on the semiconductor company’s stock.

“We understand 3-5 are moving into mass production. The potential US sales ban to Hikvision and Dauha (roughly 20-25% of revenue) is also causing these customers to pull in orders forward into FY20:Q2 (Jul). If trade issues break in AMBA’s favor the Company could gain substantial market share. We estimate that their professional camera revenue was $90M in CY18. With its strong product offering, a 2x increase in selling price over the prior generation of chips, and diminished Huawei we estimate FY21 (Jan) AMBA’s professional camera revenue could be $200M-$250M. Assume the rest of the business declines by 10% our FY21/CY20 revenue estimate would be $315M-$365M substantially above our current estimate of $255M.”,” Northland Securities’ analyst commented.
