Needham Keeps a Buy Rating on Resonant (RESN)

Needham analyst Rajvindra Gill maintained a Buy rating on Resonant (RESNResearch Report) today and set a price target of $4.50. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $3.

Gill noted:

“RESN reported 4Q18 revenue below expectations driven by sluggish mobile handset demand in China. Due to the softer China handset market, RESN has limited near term visibility into the product launches of new handsets shipping with ISN designed devices. Despite the the macro environment, RESN exceeded its 2018 20 contracted designs accepted by customers and over ten RESN designed devices shipping. RESN also highlighted its new XBAR technology when it demoed its filter for 5G band n79 to select customers at MWC. Due to the weak China handset demand, we are reducing our revenue estimates. We anticipate softer near term demand followed by strong growth in 2H19 and 2020 as OEMs launch new handsets with RESN’s designs. We maintain the Buy and our $4.50 PT , based on an EV equal to ~9x expected 2020 sales.”
