  • 2. Canaccord Genuity analysts commented, "We recently hosted investor meetings with management and come away with increased confidence in both the growth outlook for H2/18 (backlog + $30M y/y entering Q3, much easier comps) and positioning for longer-term secular drivers (industrial automation, smart buildings, rising bandwidth needs, etc.). Short interest remains elevated (we believe a potential positive catalyst), as we maintain our BUY recommendation. Broadcast at the bottom. Clearly a source of much investor consternation in recent periods (outsized vs. overall platform contribution, in our view), we believe GV has likely troughed, as big projects have largely dried up (Q1/18 faced a particularly tough comp) and current demand is much more run-rate" (while cost structure is greatly optimized for eventual upturn)." (8/22/2018)
