October 17th, 2018 · No Comments

The company is slowly but steadily increasing the SaaS recurring portion of its revenue, boosting growth and margins. While the company still sells mainly hardware which is only growing a bit, it does serve as a platform for selling their SaaS solutions.

Patients Versus Shareholders

October 17th, 2018 · No Comments

There is a critical distinction between market friendly and business friendly deregulation but this is almost never made, with sometimes terrible consequences.

Time Is Running Out For Marin Software

October 17th, 2018 · No Comments

The company is in a lengthy transformation to a new SaaS platform, but it’s producing large losses and bleeding cash in the process. The company is running out of cash within a couple of quarters.

Extreme Networks, Light At The End Of The Tunnel?

October 15th, 2018 · No Comments

Extreme Networks produced a number of disappointing quarters and that looks set to continue in the upcoming two quarters. However, the stock price has been savaged, and we’re fairly convinced much of the headwinds are temporary. A substantial improvement should arrive early calendar 2019 onwards when these temporary headwinds should mostly subside. Source: Extreme Networks, […]

Masimo Is Closing In On $1 Billion In Revenues

October 15th, 2018 · No Comments

A solid, growing medical monitoring device producer which keeps adding customers and new products fueling growth. Earnings are growing faster due to operational leverage and cash flows used to buy back shares. However, we still find the shares quite expensive. If you’re in, we suggest to keep it, but for new investors we would advise […]

Headwinds For Cypress Semiconductor

October 11th, 2018 · No Comments

Despite considerable progress the last couple of years in shifting its business towards secular growth markets, the share price has not done all that much. The market is pricing in slower growth in the semi-conductor industry next year and an escalation of trade tensions. Cypress is far from immune to these, but given the decline […]

KEMET Corporation Is Falling Off A Cliff

October 11th, 2018 · No Comments

KEMET shares have fallen 40% from the top set in July. Apparently, investors are bracing for serious trade trouble. The company’s exposure to US tariffs on Chinese imports seems manageable, as some tariffs can be passed on and production can shift to other locations. Less certain are the effects of possible Chinese retaliation, especially if […]

A Buying Opportunity Is Opening Up In Entegris

October 11th, 2018 · No Comments

At the time of Q2, there was little sign of any significant slowdown. While China is a fast-growing market for the company, we don’t think their sales (12% of revenue) will be too much affected. We still see a secular growth trend in place with the company doing better than the industry and some operational […]

Gilat Satellite Can Fly Higher

October 11th, 2018 · No Comments

Overall revenue growth stalled, but this is hiding high growth areas like mobile backhaul. Revenues declined by almost half in their terrestrial infrastructure segment, but this is a temporary delay. There is a considerable amount of operational improvement and 2019 looks to be a year when growth can resume, so we think the shares can […]
