Q: IRBT got smashed by the market after their earnings on July 28th. They are now trading below their 200 day moving average. From my read of the earnings transcript, things on the top line are going very well, and the earnings disapointment is directly attributable to a shortage in semiconductors, getting caught in the US tariffs on Chinese goods (which they claim will change in the back half of 2021), and supply chain issues. But demand for their products seems to outstrip supply by a wide margin.

My questions: do you think IRBT is a good long term buy right now, or could it drift lower? Are hedgies selling? Is the short interest still high relative the past? Are they making progress with their strategy to switch to recurring revenue? What does the competitive landscape look like?

Q: I invested in iRobot a few months ago at about $82 as a play in AI for my RRSP, planning on just sitting on it for years. It soon dropped into the $60's but I held on, and in the past couple of weeks it's been gaining day over day, now up over $115. Is there a valid reason for the quick rise in price? Or, should I be concerned that there is hype involved, and take some gains. You assessment please! Thanks, Kim
