The company said that the key reasons behind the poor revenue guidance are global logistics and supply chain issues, especially the lack of affordable GPUs in the retail channel. Corsair expects this to have impacted revenues by about 10%.

Corsair’s CEO Andy Paul said, “After a slower start to the third quarter of 2021, we have seen a return to more typical seasonal ordering with September being the strongest month in the quarter.” (See Insiders’ Hot Stocks on TipRanks)

For full-year 2021, the company guided for net revenues to be between $1.83 billion and $1.93 billion, compared with Street’s expectations of $2 billion.

Overall, the stock commands a Strong Buy consensus rating based on 3 Buys and 1 Hold. The average Corsair price target of $39 implies 44.6% upside potential to current levels.
