While we are encouraged in the operating profit over- achievement, we are eager to ascertain on the opportunity for revenue growth re- acceleration before getting more constructive." (7/23/2018)

DCF-based price target remains $25. Our assumptions include 4.7% top-line growth in 2019, and mid-to-high single-digit growth thereafter. We also assume significant margin expansion over time."
