We reiterate our Overweight rating on VCRA shares but lower our target price to $37 from $45. After the close on Thursday, February 7, VCRA reported 4Q18 results. Bookings were soft in the quarter, which resulted in slightly lower revenue. The disappointing bookings will also impact 2019 results. Management attributed the weakness due to the Smartbadge introduction and other issues. We had anticipated some transition issues, but not at this level. While the lower guidance is disappointing, it does not reduce our enthusiasm toward the shares (which traded down 22% to $31.20 in after hours trading).
