Chardan Capital Believes Smith Micro Software (NASDAQ: SMSI) Won’t Stop Here

By Austin Angelo

Chardan Capital analyst James McIlree reiterated a Buy rating on Smith Micro Software (SMSIResearch Report) yesterday and set a price target of $5. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $3.28, close to its 52-week high of $3.48.

McIlree noted:

“We view our estimates as conservative with ample room for the company to beat expectations. The key growth driver for the company is SafePath, which generated $1.2 million in revenue in Q4:18, $2.1 million in Q1:19 and projected to generate $2.4 million this quarter. If the company added as many customers in Q2 as it did in Q1, which we regard as possible, SafePath revenue would exceed $3.5 million for the quarter. We also believe there is upside in ViewSpot revenue which contributed $1.1 million in Q1 and is forecast to generate $0.9 million in Q2. We expect continued growth for SafePath for this year and next. We have modeled SafePath revenue this year of $10.2 million and $15 million in 2020.”
