Management’s efforts to sell off the ailing defense division, discontinue its struggling non-core products, and renew its focus on its existing home products (and especially its marketing and sales) has resulted in accelerating growth, pushing YoY revenue growth to nearly 30% in the latest quarter, and a near doubling of adjusted quarterly EPS YoY. And those freed up resources will be plowed into further bets on the home. But honestly, one has to wonder what the future holds, and how long a company can fuel meaningful YoY growth on vacuum cleaners (and let’s be frank: if their R&D is able to do better, why haven’t they?). The company has focused heavily on international sales for growth, especially to China, which — while small today — it believes has the potential to become its largest market at some point. Management has also mentioned they’ll be releasing a new product for the home this year, but is mum on details.

To me, this looks like a company in transition, as it now refocuses on what it does best. I think the recent moves it has made are prudent, and it’s beginning to see the benefit of those moves. It seems quite possible that short-term tail winds will lend a boost to the share price over the next year, especially if it can gain traction with its new mystery product. But looking out to the medium term, the company will ultimately face again the question of whether it can meaningfully innovate, and its track record so far is very uninspiring. Clearly, this transition and refocus will need to reach all the way through R&D to ensure a bright and relevant future for the company, and it’s too early to know whether that will occur. Tweaking one’s ad messaging is one thing, but disrupting an R&D culture is quite another, and I’d want to see some evidence of at least early success.

Combine this negative SumZero piece - http://bit.ly/1uGLG01 - with Dyson's new robot vacuum - http://bit.ly/1Ag8CpW, and you have a recipe for a rough patch.

iRobot has loads of cash and an increasingly diverse revenue stream. I think they are shaking off the dust from over-reliance on defense spending and now the future is bright.

Robots will be the ".com" craze of 2015-2020. IRobot corporation has always been at the forefront of robotics, specifically in home consumer areas. These guys will be the first to launch the robot heavy hitter consumer products that will dominate the market. They also have an extensive patent list. Outperform!

This is a pretty decent company, growing >15% per year. With sales approaching half a billion and a 1.2 billion market cap, this company seems cheap to me.

The stock is boosted from several sides. Firstly, iRobot has made the turnaround, away from the military orders, to household robots.
Moreover, the market in this segment is growing rapidly, as customers needs are hit. It's like having the dishwasher, we just don't want to do any tedious tasks in the household and in the future we will have less and less time to do so.
Moreover, iRobot is just a perfect takeover target for Google, because it fits the profile.
I think the 100% chance applies for 2014, just as it worked last year.

Greetings from Germany, Europe wins iRobot also the way to fame and popularity.
