Wow as of 4:35 PM after hours price is $112 or a 28% increase. I wonder if this increase includes shorts covering or if they still need to cover at huge losses...
Best you're gonna be disappointed when this goes to 115 today
I sold my shares last night in after hours at $113.75, and I was lucky. Now IRBT is trading at $103+ in pre market. I took my profit because I truly believe the stock is overvalued, and competition in the near term will be an issue. Acquiring two distributors, one previously and one announced last night, indicates to me that organic growth could be an issue for them down the road. This past quarter was very good, so I was rewarded with a great profit. Now it's time to put in my new buy order in the low $80's, because that's where I believe a buying opportunity will exist in time.
$200 by next year. $500 by 2020. $1000+ within 5 years. IRBT is now an anointed tech stock that will hit new highs every year for decades to come.
$SFTBY takes 5% stake in $IRBT. Also looking at acquiring a stake in Uber. FYI.
I still hold my shares, bought this years ago for 28 $. This Stock can go to 200$ or more. Take a look at the Free- Float is sinking to 12,7%. Who buys all the shares? = Softbank, Blackrock, Rothschild etc.
Motley fool just gave the thumbs up to buy this stock.
SoftBank - Everybody's Greater Fool $NVDA $IRBT
n for AH's pop: Japan's SoftBank has taken an investment stake in the company:
Roomba Maker iRobot Rockets On SoftBank Investment Report
Home-cleaning robot maker iRobot saw its shares skyrocket late Tuesday on a report that Japan's SoftBank has taken an investment stake.
anyone think we will reach $25 up by eot.?
Closed only 5 dollar and 29 cents higher than previous 52 week high. Market is unfair to IRBT but it will correct itself within this month.
New official 52 week high on the way.
Acquiring yet another distributor is masking other issues for the company (article out confirming). Today and tomorrow morning early present gifts to long investors. Those "gifts" will evaporate quickly, so the consensus is to take your profits, because no one will want to be the greater fool buying near or at the top of the short squeeze. The Softbank position is small, and was accumulated before this earnings report. I would expect Softbank to unwind that position, given the move in after hours tonight. Anything over $100 presents an excellent short sell opportunity, but I would advise waiting until the morning to initiate that move. Even if the trade goes against you early, I expect the move will be faded, if not tomorrow before the end of the week.
Why are we down over $2/share on a day when the DOW is up ~125 points?
Do people expect disappointing earnings tonight, or are they creeped out at stories of robot vacuums someday selling mapping data from inside customer's houses?
Spruce got run over!
My calls were a week 2 early.
Why is it up ~20% after hours?
#$%$ short on cnbc tanked the stock in final hour. too bad. nothing he said made sense.
