FARO Technologies, Inc. designs, develops, and markets software and portable, computerized measurement devices. The Company's products allow manufacturers to perform three-dimensional inspections of parts and assemblies on the shop floor.

Potential upside of 6.5% exists for FARO Technologies, based on a current level of $37.86 and analysts' average consensus price target of $40.33. The stock should discover initial support at its 50-day moving average (MA) of $37.23 and subsequent support at its 200-day MA of $36.89.
