The company also beat consensus earnings estimates by 20.89% on revenue. However, net income dipped to -$16.97 million. However, this is mainly due to to the increased costs of developing its first quantum processing units. As sales increase, the company projects income to cover expenses in the upcoming fiscal years.
Ultimately, the largest factor behind Rigetti Computing’s growth has been the development of its quantum processing units. Recently, Rigetti Computing announced a nine-qubit QPU, which is expected to outperform other competitors at the same processing power. Furthermore, its upgraded Ankaa-2 system, the sequel to its successful Ankaa-1 system, is projected to be released in Q4 2023.

Aehr Test has been on a downward spiral lately with significant selling pressure. It experienced a decline of 25.9% last month. However, it is very likely for the trend for the stock to minimalize and return for primed growth, as indicated by its RSI reading of 27. This implies Aehr Test will effectively reach the old equilibrium of supply and demand following the coverage of short-term issues. In addition, there has been strong agreement among the sell-side analysts covering the stock in raising earnings estimates for the current year. The consensus EPS projected for AEHR has increased by 3.2% throughout the last 30 days. The price appreciation in the near term is estimated to take place due to an upward trend in earnings estimate revisions.
Yahoo! Finance reports an analyst with a 12-month price target of $60.00. AEHR looks oversold, and there is strong growth potential leading into the end of this year. All in all, if you are looking for quantum computing stocks to buy, this is a great place to start.
