    • Don't get your hopes up. This company is a bit of a sham. The last run in the stock was based on the promised of their med-bot, which is basically a glorified video conferencing system on wheels.

      As investors we need to learn to filter out the wall street noise and froth that was added to this stock during the epic pump and then dump.

      Reversion to the mean puts this back in the mid 20's. After that, the table has been reset and iRobot will need to put their money where their mouth is when it comes to new products and growth.

      Just my 2c.

      GL all.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • new products would be great, but i wouldn't discount the effect of the roomba/braava lines improving incrementally. if you've owned one you know they work pretty darn well—and if it gets just a little smaller, a little smarter, and a little cheaper, they could very easily sell twice as many, or more.

        it's early stages, robots are...complicated, but from my experience they make a quality product, and the valuation rightly reflects a bright future should they continue to execute.

        however an autonomous lawnmowing robot with spinning blades is in my opinion a dicey proposition. i would stick to products that can't take your foot off if they malfunction.
