A wireline provider in the telecom space. He does not think they are well positioned for the 5G revolution. A good company that is buying back stock, but he would not be a buyer.

They're in optimal networking with Google, Facebook and Amazon among their customers. They're getting a boost, because they are a supplier of choice--Huawei is getting shut out of certain markets (Analysts’ price target is $44.22)

At the present time, this is trading up at quite an astonishing price to book level. In his FMV view, it is about 25% overvalued. There hasn’t been a lot of growth in the BV for some period of time. However, earnings have been notching up nicely. This is what he would call speculatively priced.

Has benefited from an upsurge in interest in telecom equipment stocks. The stock is extremely expensive. Would have to grow their revenues 15% over the next eight to 10 years to justify the current valuations.

Thinks the spending is going to come back. Expect this company and Nortel will be in a digestive period for about a year. Bullish long-term.
