It’s a day full of TiVo. The company reports quarterly earnings this afternoon and apparently none of the financial analysts agree on how investors should react to a predicted $.02 per-share loss. I borrowed the title of this post from a Motley Fool article, which goes on to report that seven analysts recommend TiVo as a buy, four as a hold and six as a sell.
Interestingly, if TiVo can manage to beat Wall Street expectations by just a smidge, it could end up profitable for the first (second?) time in the company’s history. There are several new media extender products launching, but few if any are backed by companies without other business interests. TiVo is traveling a very solitary road, and it is still trying to prove it can continue to do so successfully.
