Buch noted, “We expect the company to continue to utilize acquisitions as a complement to organic growth, which should begin to accelerate into 2022 as working conditions continue to normalize post COVID-19. The acceleration in revenue growth, return to more normalized gross margin, and more positive news flow as new contracts are announced should serve as powerful catalysts in attracting new investors.”
The rest of the Street is cautiously optimistic about the stock and has a Moderate Buy consensus rating based on 2 Buys. The average Phunware price target of $1.88 implies 55.5% downside potential.
