$IRBT Expect A Short Squeeze

NASDAQ:IRBT   iRobot Corporation
Yesterday we got the catalyst we were looking for from $IRBT - a solid earnings report. With 48% of the float short, we expect $IRBT to squeeze the shorts. Here are the highlights"

iRobot (NASDAQ:IRBT): Q4 Non-GAAP EPS of $0.69 in-line; GAAP EPS of $0.70 beats by $0.29.

Revenue of $426.78M (+10.9% Y/Y) beats by $10.83M.

Shares of iRobot (NASDAQ:IRBT) popped after the company hires a new CFO and reports Q4 EPS even above the highest estimate turned in by analysts.

Revenue was up 11% during the quarter and operating income came in at $16.6M vs. $29.8M a year ago. Tariff costs factored into the OI decline.

The company promoted VP of finance Julie Zeiler to take over the CFO position from Alison Dean.

As always, trade with caution and use protective stops.

Good luck to all!
