Has done a better job than Nortel (NT-T) in recovering but it's a tough end market. They've had to merger to consolidate the market which was massively overbuilt. Still a lot of headwinds.

The issues that face this company and Nortel (N-T) is that they have never consolidated, but the companies they supply have. Their margins are being squeezed.

Recent quarterly earnings were OK, but didn't blow anyone away. In a difficult sector along with Cisco (CSCO-Q) and Nortel (NT-T). It's hard to grow profits. There's a huge number of share outstanding. To get the earnings up to $0.50 a share is a long hard road.

A fallen angel. Hasn't been as strong in technology or techology innovations as Nortel. Has to deal with some accounting issues. Doesn't see much opportunity here. Doesn't see a huge surge in spending or pricing for the sector.

Like Nortel, it faces slow growth in the telecom industry. Faced with declining business in wire-line. People are moving to wireless and IP networks, voice over IP for example. Doing well in wireless but because of wireline, revenue growth is very slow. Trades at 2 X revenues which is pretty high historically.

Looks interesting. Finally getting their act together and showing a lot of positive momentum. Very fairly valued.

Looked like it was dead, but have acgtually turned around a fair bit. Not making much money and haved an enormous pension liability. If telecoms stay good, it'll be OK.

Will be challenged as we go forward. If he wanted to go into this sector down the road, would prefer Cisco.

Engineering may be more shallower than Nortel but US investors are more comfortable with it. The whole electronic industry is rising so odds are the price will rise.
