Roth Capital analyst Darren Aftahi maintained a Buy rating on Gaia Inc (GAIA – Research Report) today and set a price target of $11.25. The company’s shares opened today at $6.79, close to its 52-week low of $6.54.
“We expect in-line 2Q results when GAIA reports AMC on 8/5. While we anticipate subscriber growth and thus revenue to slow on the margin, we remain comfortable with the 20%+ sub. growth rate and reduced costs that should aid GAIA’s path to incremental adj. EBITDA improvements (~$0.8M q/ q improvement expected on ~$0.6M in incremental revenue). However, we believe cash burn likely remains high, and thus a focus for investors. Shares most likely reflect most risks at ~$7. PT to $11.25. Expecting further progress towards profitability and steady sub growth in 2Q19 results, but cash burn likely overshadows (for now). We look for 2Q19 sales/adj. $13.1M/($2.8M)/($0.32), in-line with consensus estimates of $13.2M/($2.7M)/($0.33). We look for streaming revenue growth of ~31% y/y, implying subscriber growth of ~24% y/y.”
