Smith Micro Develops Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI) stock surged by 2.39% during the current market trading session. Smith Micro creates software that simplifies and improves the mobile experience for some of the world’s major wireless service providers and cable MSOs.

What is happening?
The ongoing excitement around SMSI’s purchase of Avast’s Family Safety Mobile Business can be linked to the increase in SMSI share price. Smith Micro Software’s product range now includes mobile family safety services such as content filtering, location features, and screen time monitoring, due to the purchase. This will almost certainly strengthen SMSI’s position in the family safety software-as-a-service (SaaS) market.
SMSI’s broad client base and diverse product range, which comprises of platforms such as CommSuite, SafePath, and ViewSpot, auger well for SMSI’s future growth. This business is projected to announce a quarterly loss of $0.01 per share in its next report, representing a -114.3 percent year-over-year decrease. Revenues are anticipated to be $15.47 million, up 19.6% from the same period last year.
Although profits and revenue growth projections provide a fair indication of a stock’s prospective strength, empirical research reveals that patterns in earnings estimate revisions are highly associated with short-term stock price fluctuations.
Over the last 30 days, the consensus EPS forecast for Smith Micro Software, Inc. has been constant. In the absence of any trend in earnings estimate revisions, a stock’s price typically does not continue to rise. So it is suggested to keep a watch on SMSI in the next months to see if the recent strength can be translated into additional strength in the future.
