“Cloud-delivered cybersecurity solutions provider Cyren reported 2Q19 results on August 14 before market open. The quarter was, on the whole, about in line with our expectations: Revenue of $9.7M met our estimate and marked a quarterly record for CYRN, non-GAAP operating loss of ($3.8M) was a touch better than we expected, and non-GAAP loss per share of $(0.08) came in just below our $(0.07) due to higher financial expense. However, we are tempering our growth outlook for the company in the second half of 2019 in order to reflect a shift in product strategy within the enterprise business and gradual expansion of the threat intelligence business.”

KVH Industries (KVHI)
B.Riley FBR analyst Christopher Van Horn reiterated a Buy rating on KVH Industries today and set a price target of $15. The company’s shares closed last Monday at $8.84, close to its 52-week low of $8.74.
Van Horn said:
“We continue to be buyers of KVH Industries (KVHI-$15 PT) as the company continues to make the shift from product sales to service sales, which we think will ultimately transform the company into a higher-margin, higher-growth company. Despite the lower-than-expected 2Q19 and the lowering of 2019 guidance (mainly due to divestitures and increased investments in growth), our Buy thesis on the stock remains intact. Strategically, the company now has roughly $65M in cash and signficantly lower debt. We think this gives them flexibility for capital deployment including acquisitions, further debt paydown, investing in new tech, and possible buybacks. We think that the most significant opportunity for the company is in autonomous vehicles. The company is now field testing its FOG-based 1725 IMU on autonomous vehicles.”
According to TipRanks.com, Horn is a 2-star analyst with an average return of -0.1% and a 44.2% success rate. Horn covers the Consumer Goods sector, focusing on stocks such as Crawford United Corporation Class A, Motorcar Parts Of America, and Standard Motor Products.
