TransAct Technologies Incorporated (TACT) Receives “Buy” Rating from B. Riley

B. Riley reaffirmed their buy rating on shares of TransAct Technologies Incorporated (NASDAQ:TACT) in a research report sent to investors on Friday morning. B. Riley currently has a $11.00 price objective on the technology company’s stock.

“We model Q3 revenue of $14.6 million, adjusted EBITDA at $1.8 million and EPS at $0.12 (we are the only current estimates included in consensus). Management does not provide guidance and revenues can fluctuate due to large roll outs, installations, and project-based engagements, making quarterly projections particularly challenging. We expect commentary around contributions from higher margin products (restaurant, spare parts, labels, service, and casino bonusing products) to be a key focus for investors.”,” the firm’s analyst commented.
