Our assumption of seasonal performance off of below-consensus Mar Q guidance leads to our below-guidance 2019 revenue estimate… …but still a re-accelerating growth profile to 10% y/y by 4Q19 given secular growth, year-ago dealer add dynamics & likely increasing loyalty from dealers. Despite the weaker-than-anticipated 2019 outlook, we remain confident CTRL is well-positioned for sustained organic growth of 10% for multiple years but, we reduce our PT to $31, from $36 and maintain Buy rating."

We continue to remain confident in management’s ability to improve margin and revenue growth and pursue strategic acquisitions. However, based on the share price as of 8/27/18, the stock is now above our price target. Rationale Growth reflected in recent stock price. On 8/2/18, CTRL reported 2Q18 results with revenue, adjusted EPS, and adjusted gross margin all above our estimates. In our report dated 8/3/18, we raised our price target to $32 from $30 (about 22% above the then share price of $26.26).
