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.

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.
