The analysts wrote, “Following recent discussion with management, we maintain our Buy and increase our price objective from $50 to $60, highlighting three reasons for our bullish view: strong business momentum and upcoming product launches; good uptake on the announced distribution agreement with Ingram Micro; and substantial upside to our 2015/2016 estimates. We believe the stock remains attractive despite the recent strong run up, trading at ~22x our 2015E EPS, vs. a 67% cumulative revenue growth in the last four quarters. Our PO is based on ~26x our 2015E P/E, which we think is more aligned with the future growth potential.”
