New NASDAQ Augmented Reality (AR) Profile *VUZI* Could Be Friday's Big Breakout Tech Stock, Read Why
Must Read - $6.75 Consensus Analyst Price Target
VUZI Corporation Presentation
In case you aren't in the know, Augmented reality (AR) is the blending of interactive digital elements – like dazzling visual overlays, buzzy haptic feedback, or other sensory projections – into our real-world environments.
Google SkyMap is a well-known AR app. It overlays information about constellations, planets and more as you point the camera of your smartphone or tablet toward the heavens.
Wikitude is an app that looks up information about a landmark or object by your simply pointing at it using your smartphone's camera.
Need help visualizing new furniture in your living room? The IKEA Place app will provide an overlay of a new couch for that space before you buy it so that you can make sure it fits.
Augment reality is a technology that is here to stay and the potential growth of this industry could soon shoot through the roof. Several researchers agree:
- The global augmented reality market is estimated to reach $73Bn by 2024 – ResearchAndMarkets, January 2020
- The global augmented reality market has the potential to grow by $77Bn during 2020-2024 – Technavio, January 2020
- The augmented reality market is estimated to reach $73Bn by 2024 – MarketsandMarkets, January 2020
- The augmented reality market will exceed $43Bn by 2024 – Juniper Research, October 2019
- The augmented reality market size is set to cross $50Bn by 2024 – Global Market Insights, September 2019
Because of these numbers/stats and more, I want you to turn to an up-and-comer flying under Wall Street's noses.
For Friday, May 8th, your new breakout NASDAQ profile is:
> Vuzix Corporation (VUZI) <

The Company's products include personal display and wearable computing devices that offer users a portable high-quality viewing experience, provide solutions for mobility, wearable displays and augmented reality.

That's potentially why multiple analysts see this stock as currently undervalued.
#1 Potential VUZI Catalyst: Consensus $6.75 Price Target
According to MarketBeat's website, there is currently a consensus price target of $6.75 derived from two different analysts' suggestions.
There is a $10.00 target coming from Chardan capital and a $3.50 target coming from Maxim Group.

Just imagine if some major news comes out that's brings buzz to this company's stock?

The Gemvision platform also comes equipped with a call center dashboard for external users and allows remote experts to collaborate and illustrate during live video sessions. The feedback from the medical community regarding Gemvision and the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses solution has been very positive.
"You can describe a wound, but that is difficult. When someone looks at you, it helps enormously. When we really see something, it is much clearer what is going on with a person," says Michiel Klitsie, a technical physician at Careaz homecare and user of the Gemvision/Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses solution. "As healthcare professionals, we are a major risk factor for transmitting the CV-19, in nursing homes for example, but we don't have to be there when these glasses are used. You can also see more clients in less time."
"The Gemvision remote wound care solution centered around the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses not only allows for more efficient use of the health specialist's time, but it also frees the patients from long and often painful visits to the hospital. Since the CV-19 pandemic began we have experienced a surge in inbound digital health requests and adoption across healthcare is now scaling up nationwide," stated Mark Smit, CEO and Founder of Gemvision.
"Gemvision is a long-standing partner of Vuzix that continues to innovate and deliver a valuable Vuzix smart glasses-based solution to customers in healthcare and enterprise," said Paul Travers, Vuzix President and Chief Executive Officer.
