In the following video, Brenton and Austin discuss glassmaker Corning and the reasons for its recent 52-week low. Corning has grown in popularity because of its role in providing Gorilla Glass for a wide variety of smartphones and tablets, but growth rates in that segment haven't been too impressive lately. Management blames supply-chain uncertainties for some of the recent weakness, with a boost expected next quarter. For shareholders, that growth can't come soon enough, given the struggles the company is facing in its core LCD glass business and the pricing pressures it's experiencing.
Many investors thought they would ride Corning's dominant cover glass to massive returns. That hasn't played out yet, but the all-important back half of the year could offer some nice growth rates for investors to cling to.
