B.Riley FBR Maintains a Hold Rating on Dolby Laboratories (DLB)


B.Riley FBR analyst Eric Wold maintained a Hold rating on Dolby Laboratories (DLB) today and set a price target of $67. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $71.58.

Wold commented:

“We are revisiting Dolby Laboratories (DLB) after our meeting with management on Monday, 12/3. We came away from that meeting with a more positive view around the company’s position within the emerging HDR technology segment and an opportunity to see evidence of increased Dolby Vision penetration at CES in early January. We downgraded DLB to a strong move in the shares and some concerns coming out of last year’s CES around a potential HDR format war developing—that could limit the TAM for Dolby Vision and/or cause a short-term growth headwind.”

According to TipRanks.com, Wold is a 2-star analyst with an average return of 0.3% and a 42.0% success rate. Wold covers the Services sector, focusing on stocks such as Reading International Inc, Cinemark Holdings Inc, and National Cinemedia.
