Alcatel-Lucent is in a touchy place. With a very meaningful 30% of the company's sales coming from continental Europe, some investors suspect they're in for a rough ride. Yet while the wider corporate and government IT spending climate certainly doesn't appear cheery going forward, investors have seen some potential green shoots this earnings season. Alcatel certainly is a divisive subject among investors in this space. Priced absurdly cheaply, the company could have the makings of investing gold for those bold enough. However, the stock has its fair share of enemies as well -- analysts outright hate it. In fact, some analysts have completely given up on the company, hanging a $0 price tag on it. To figure out whether Alcatel deserves such hate, our technology editor weighed in with his opinion on the matter.
