+ Watch IRBT
on My Watchlist
The Company provides robots that enable people to complete complex tasks in a better way.
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!
Recent sell-off (4/25/2014) unjustified based on earnings and future prospects and company plans for other sectors.
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.
Robots are the future, duh !
Excellent products that are increasing in popularity
Robots are the future
GREAT IDEAS WILL TRANSFORM TO GREAT PROFITS.
iRobot has the innovation necessary to outperform the market for the next 5 years.
ROBOTS ARE THE FUTURE
cause robots are cool
Not keeping up with the hype.
Huge Applications besides a constant VACUM will emerge from this novel Robotics Company
Better company than movie or book. Anytime you can take a menial task that truly is a waste of time and automate it... To cap off why... Sweeping and cleaning sucks. It does nothing for the economy and there are many daily tasks that if automated would allow someone to focus on being productive. I think more people will adopt smart technologies and IRobot has a brand name.
iRobot is a must own on any pull back imo. The ability to easily control their current and future robots with your smart phone or iPad is going to revolutionize the way we live and work. These robots map their surrounding (after discovery mission) and allow you to easily select an area on a map, then it self guides itself to that location, without you having to clumsily manually control the robot to its location. Robots are going to play a key role in our future, the tech is finally able to live up to the multi decade history of hype. Instead of having to run around large manufacturing plants to deliver a product or discuss an idea, you can preprogram a robot to complete the task, while using your time to work on something else = Better productivityThen there also vacuuming, window cleaning, gutter cleaning, lawn mowing, military applications, space exploration, surveillance/security, etc, etc. Robots can do countless things and the tech is advancing faster now than ever.
The long-term picture here is more than just semi-intelligent vacuums, as iRobot will have true staying power for decades to come. Looking to broaden my long-term outlook on my stock selections and I see this company playing a key role in the world's future of robotics. Simply put, I see the iRobot story as worth well more than the $1 billion it is currently valued at. Pair that up with no debt, reasonable valuations, and a company that has returned to its growing days, and I believe we have an outperformer on our hands. 5+ years
its the way of the future. Much of what they build is for military purposes, which never seem to dry up. Plus, who wants to clean there own gutters?
Long term buy! They finally managed to become independant of defence contracts and their cleaning robots are the standard and market leader.
