Is Corning Starting to Crack?

Corning stock always seems cheap and now looks especially compelling after its big drop on second-quarter earnings, which fell 39%. They met estimates, but the main weakness continues to be revenue. With Apple selling 26 million iPhones, you might expect Corning to get a boost, but the turnaround still has not come.

Corning has been one of the many companies to benefit from Apple's rise. Apple is the most influential company in technology and has delivered market-smashing returns for those lucky enough to invest in the company. However, with the impending release of the iPhone 5 and Apple TV on the horizon, the stakes have never been higher for the company. If you're looking for a recommendation on how to play Apple along with continuing updates and guidance on the company whenever news breaks, we've created a brand new report that details when to buy and sell Apple.

    Corning has been very consistent with their outlook. Investors have had very little surprise when earnings are reported. One positive is that Apple sold more iPads than expected, which obviously use more glass than iPhones, but Corning's business is largely based on TV panel sales. Sales and gross margin are both projected to be up slightly next quarter, but not enough to get investors excited. The recent drop is related to traders playing the earnings report. The stock will rebound, but will likely stay in it's trading range of the past 6 months until better news comes. If Apple announces a TV, look out.
