A few months ago, spudweather tapped Ceragon as a tasty turnaround opportunity: "2011 setback in earnings has depressed stock price, but looks set for tremendous earnings growth in 2012 and 2013. I expect to see prices in the $30's in 2013."
Over the next five years, in fact, Ceragon is expected to grow its bottom line at a brisk rate of 46% annually. That's much faster than rivals Alcatel-Lucent (10%), DragonWave (15%), and Motorola Solutions (11%).
CAPS member Prodders elaborates on the Ceragon bull case:
Really well placed in the 4G build-out. A couple of the recent earnings reports have disappointed a little, the most recent partly due to the Nera acquisition which should be highly accretive longer-term. Once people start looking more at 2012 earnings then you have something like a10-12x [forward] P/E and 30% growth. Definitely a potential double.
