    escower: the downgrade was made with an agenda in mind. It seems to me that the agenda was the hope to creating an opportunity to get in at a lower share price. Individuals. funds, corporations will pay an analyst or a "blogger" to upgrade, downgrade , or promote a company of their choice. As a result , I take analysts comments with "hand full of salt". SWIR's fundamentals have not changed. In fact, nothing has changed about the M2M , IOT Connectivity and SWIR commands 34% of the growing M2M market along with a host of reliable clients. My suggestion is that one should take analyst comments for "what's worth" and do your own DD.
    Warren Buffet made his money by selecting a 'GEM" and holding it long term even through downturns. SWIR, is a "GEM" ! Hope this helps.

    Nothings has changed SWIR"S fundamentals. In time SWIR will head higher. Earnings will exceed analyst's expectations. No need to worry!

  • The remedy for blue.berry is for everyone on the Board is to put him on ignore He takes delight in annoying everyone by posting that kind of stupid past over and over again knowing that he is annoying everyone

  • SWIR'S Fundamentals have not been better than now. The longs need not worry about the fluctuation of SWIR's current share price. The price is being manipulated by the "Market Makers . (",M.MS). This is obvious from the fact that After hours trading is not normal. Fluctuating the price up or down by s small number of shares, 2,3,5, etc. I guess the M.Ms have to make money some how! Nevertheless, please do your own DD.

  • •Less than a month after downgrading Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ:SWIR) to Underperform, Raymond James has upgraded the M2M hardware vendor to Market Perform.
    •The upgrade comes ahead of Sierra's Thursday Q4 report. Shares had fallen 19% between the time of RJ's downgrade (Jan. 7) and last Friday's close.

  • •Sierra Wireless' post-earnings drop was unwarranted.
    •The company's latest acquisition of Maingate should facilitate revenue growth.
    •The company is well-positioned to benefit from the 4G-LTE and automotive market.
    •Sierra Wireless is a buy at present valuation.

  • Swir today announced the completion ofthe acquisition of Wireless Maingate, AB (Maingate), a Sweden-based provider of
    machine-to-machine (M2M) connectivity and data management services, for US $90 million, subject to certain post-closing adjustments. Details of the acquisition were first announced on December 22, 2014.
    Maingate provides managed M2M connectivity and information management services to more than 500 customers across Europe, reaching a subscriber base of more than 500,000 connected devices. Founded in 1998, Maingate was a pioneer in offering wireless services specifically for the M2M market. Maingate’s value-added services include leading-edge over-the-air subscription provisioning and tailored connectivity solutions for a broad range of M2M industries.

    Together, Sierra Wireless and Maingate will be able to offer customers in Europe complete device-to-cloud solutions, with fully integrated hardware, embedded software development tools, cloud-based application development, device and subscription management, and wireless services

  • SWIR is due for a pullback, Raymond James analyst Steven Li said.
    In the past two months, the machine-to-machine technology company has risen in share price by almost 60 per cent, propelled by a solid earnings report and index buying, after the stock was added to the S&P/TSX Composite Index in mid-December, Mr. Li said.

    As a result, the stock is now trading at about 23 times estimated 2015 earnings, compared with organic growth in the range of 10 per cent to 15 per cent.

    Mr. Li downgraded the stock to “underperform” from “market perform,” and raised the target price to $37 (U.S.) from $26. The analyst consensus price target is $35.80.

    It is a well known fact that SWIR's fundamentals have not changed and that SWIR commands 34% of the global M2M market. It is well known, too. that more car manufacturers are becoming aware that have their cars must be connected to the internet. The connected car is the new emphasis in the M2M technology
    Auto manufacturers are connecting their machines at a " break-neck" pace". Over the next five years, M2M traffic can increase 22 times over.¹ And as it grows, so does its potential. Connected cars can help relieve traffic congestion, for example, and a locally connected utility can become part of a nationwide energy solution. This year, for the first time, at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) connected cars was the biggest event with more car manufacturers were attracted to selling auto makers hardware software- an $11.3 billion market estimated by (CEA). than ever before.
    I hope that the above shows that there is no reason for concern or worry for the long term holders of SWIR shares whose shares have been in a slump recently.Nevertheless, please do your own DD.

    BMO Capital Markets initiated a rating on SWIR from "no rating" to Market Perform. It seems that the Market, after some consideration, has finally realized that SWIR's Q4 report was actually quite good. What with over 200 million in cash Jason is determined to raise share holders value by any means necessary to do so, by acquisition or whatever it takes, "no holds barred". He is an excellent CEO and can be trusted to depend on. In the 'fullness of time" SWIR will be a $50 stock and you can count on it. It will take patience but you will be handsomely rewarded. As usual, please do your own DD.

    Thanks ,muzakcitymiracle, for the good wishes. It seems that the resident trolls may have smartened up realizing that we post here to help each other not to annoy them (good). I read about DBVT and found that being in an immunological area, especially in peanut allergy strikes me as not being in an area of potentially great interest for investment. It is not a profitable company and the 52week range is only $7.00. It could be in its annual high. My main area of interest is Iot There is also oil , gas, AT&T,VZ,etc. So , I "pass" on this one.

  • According to a research report from Infonetics Research, the market for wireless modules was about $1.4 billion in 2013, representing a 6% increase year over year. The research firm expects 3G modules to comprise 67% of machine-to-machine wireless module revenue by 2018. It also expects 4G LTE modules to deliver a compound annual growth rate of 144% from 2013 to 2018 -- albeit from a relatively small base.

    That's certainly good news for Sierra Wireless, which could benefit from a continued shift up in product mix from 2G solutions, which Infonetics said comprised the majority of the wireless module market volume in 2013.

    Infonetics thinks the overall market will grow to $2.9 billion in revenue in 2018, more than doubling 2013 industry-wide sales levels. This, according to the research firm, is expected to result from greater unit shipments and a "sales shift toward higher-[average revenue per unit] 3G and 4G systems."
    (Remember,too, SWIR commands 34% of them global market).

    •M2M hardware/services provider Sierra Wireless (SWIR -4.4%) and wireless broadband/enterprise Wi-Fi hardware vendor Ubiquiti (UBNT -4.2%) are posting steep losses ahead of their calendar Q4 reports (due after the close). Sierra has seen 623K shares trade vs. a 3-month daily average of 932K, and Ubiquiti 1.44M shares vs. a 3-month average of 1.01M.
    •Sierra remains up 42% since its Nov. 5 Q3 beat and strong Q4 guidance. Ubiquiti is down 24% since its Nov. 6 FQ2 miss and light guidance.

  • Financial Guidance

    Our guidance for the first quarter of 2015 includes our recent acquisition of Maingate which closed on January 16, 2015. We expect Maingate to contribute approximately $3.5 million in revenue and approximately $1.0 million in earnings from operations from the date of acquisition. We expect the non-GAAP tax rate in the first quarter of 2015 to increase to the low 20 percent range. This results in the following non-GAAP guidance for the first quarter of 2015:

    Q1 2015 Guidance



    Revenue $145.0 to $149.0 million
    Earnings from operations $6.0 to $7.2 million
    Net earnings $4.7 to $5.7 million
    Earnings per share $0.15 to $0.18 per share

    The global installed base of connected vending machines grew by 18.4 percent to 1.16 million units in 2014. Around 0.56 million of these machines have been installed in North America, whereas 0.15 million of the machines were located in Europe.

Berg Insight forecasts that the number of connected vending machines worldwide will grow at a CAGR of 18.5 percent to reach 2.7 million units by 2019. As a result, the global penetration rate will reach 15.3 percent at the end of the forecast period. The connected vending market has gained momentum as vending operators have started to deploy cashless payment systems and vending telemetry solutions at a larger scale. The main market driver is currently cashless payments, which has become more and more important as the world moves from coins and bills to electronic payments such as credit cards and mobile wallets. Vending telemetry solutions are expected to have a more transformational effect on the industry in the coming years. “The availability of machine data in real-time coupled with state-of-the-art software platforms make it possible for vending operators to reach entirely new levels of operational efficiency”, said Lars Kurkinen, Senior Analyst at Berg Insight. “Vending operators that learn how to benefit from the real-time availability of vending machine data in the best way will have the highest chances of prospering in the vending industry in the next decade”, concludes Mr. Kurkinen.
