Strength Seen in Impinj (PI): Can Its 3.4% Jump Turn into More Strength?

Impinj extended its rally, driven by upward revision in its fourth-quarter 2022 revenue guidance. It currently expects revenues to exceed $76 million, which was previously expected between $71.5 and $73.5 million. Further, Impinj’s growing chip capabilities in the areas of retail self-checkout, loss prevention and anti-counterfeiting, remain noteworthy.

Earnings and revenue growth expectations certainly give a good sense of the potential strength in a stock, but empirical research shows that trends in earnings estimate revisions are strongly correlated with near-term stock price movements.
For Impinj, the consensus EPS estimate for the quarter has been revised 150% higher over the last 30 days to the current level.
