Oppenheimer Sticks to Its Hold Rating for Axon Enterprise Inc (AAXN)

Uerkwitz commented:

“We attended the the weekend. In conjunction, Axon made three announcements: 1) a new CEW called a new body-worn camera: a new tier of the officer safety plan (OSP)—one that gives agencies a myriad of services including Axon Records, the company’s new RMS system. The two new products—both greatly improved from previous generations—will play a significant role in helping build share in RMS due to the new OSP pricing tier as management believes agencies will value a hardware- software ecosystem. We like Axon’s vision, but worry about valuation and timing. We see product transition and likely increased OpEx leading to near-term volatility.”
