CSI Update, August 2019-Free Blog

AVID got bombed on Q2 earnings.They were really not bad but you sure shouldn’t tell from the stock price, plunging from $10.09 to $6.53. Revenues came in at $98.7 compared to $98.6 last year and Non-GAAP net income came in at $.02 a share compared to a $.10 loss last year. Apparently they “missed” some analyst estimate of $101.7 million in sales and $.04 earnings. My valuation did fall from $16.39 to $14.33 versus $14.64 in Q2 2018. This was big over reaction in my opinion. The stock has rebounded  bit since earnings.

ATEC is up 128% this year, but still is down 26% lifetime. ATEC raised about $57 million is a share offering in August at $4.60 a share. It got snapped up pretty quickly at only a 10% discount to the market price when it was announced.

SYNC has not participated in the market rally. SYNC reported Q2 earnings. Not bad, and about as expected. At this point I hope the AT&T contract winds up quickly. Maybe then the focus can be on their recurring revenue base.  Revenues came in at $31.8 million compared to $35.9 million last year. Loss was $2.2 million (Non-GAAP) compared to $2.3 million last year. Net cash was about $9 million. My valuation fell to $4.12 from $4.23, but of course this includes the soon to be gone AT&T revenues and income.  Without AT&T, I estimate the valuation is still over $3.
