In the following video, Brenton takes a look at what Corning investors can expect from the company in the back half of 2012. Corning's stock price has largely flatlined this year as investors digest what appear to be secular headwinds facing its core LCD glass business. However, pricing trends and LCD shipments are expected to improve in the back half of the year, and margins are expected to stabilize as a result. An opportunity for strong growth also still exists within products like Gorilla Glass and its new flexible Willow Glass.
It's innovations like Gorilla Glass and Willow Glass that make us optimistic that Corning will find a new leg of growth going forward.
