NASDAQ: MVIS news
The developer of laser scanning technology for 3D sensing, projection, and other uses is set to report earnings on May 7. Some fear that the report could be another negative one. Microvision's per-share earnings stood at $0.03 in the fourth quarter of 2019, and it is unclear if the company could log a profit.
The Redmond, Washington-based tech company's prices may have risen thanks to rumors about a purchase from a larger firm based in the same northwestern town – Microsoft. There is speculation about cooperation around the LIDAR technology. Moreover, another report suggests that the two companies are linked at the patent office, with Microsoft (MSFT) referencing to Pico-projections technology developed by Microvision.
The earnings report is an opportunity to announce an acquisition or any other type of cooperation. Denial may bring the stock down.
Microvision's market capitalization stands at $169.2 at the time of writing, relatively minuscule in comparison to Microsoft, which is valued at over one trillion dollars.
