A worldwide technology business called Garmin Ltd. focuses on creating GPS-enabled products for a variety of markets, including the automobile, aviation, marine, and outdoor recreation industries.
Garmin has recently completed a number of significant acquisitions to broaden both its client base and product offering. A Finnish firm called Firstbeat Analytics Oy, which specializes in physiological analytics for professional athletes, was bought by the corporation in 2020. Garmin has been able to solidify its position in the wearables market and create new products that appeal to athletes and fitness enthusiasts thanks to the acquisition of Firstbeat.
In 2019, the company acquired Navionics, a leading provider of electronic navigational charts and mobile applications for marine use. This acquisition has allowed Garmin to expand its product portfolio.
Garmin has been introducing new innovative products that have driven its earnings. In 2020, Garmin introduced the Venu 2, a smartwatch that features a range of health and fitness features.
In Q4 2021, Garmin reported revenue of $1.35 billion, an increase of 28% compared to the same period in the previous year.
The company's solid financial performance and the favorable market perception of its cutting-edge product line and smart acquisitions are the causes of the recent bullish signal for Garmin's stock. On January 31, 2023, the 50-day moving average for GRMN crossed above the 200-day moving average, signaling a change in trend for the company.
