The following video is part of our “Motley Fool Conversations” series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.
It seems as though investor patience is wearing thin for Infinera, and the stock price has fallen. John and David will use this opportunity to buy some additional shares for their real-money portfolio. Data usage is growing exponentially, and Infinera sells optical networking equipment that will help network operators meet the upcoming challenges. Unlike competitors Ciena and Alcatel-Lucent, Infinera uses photonic integrated circuits to reduce power consumption and space requirements. The company continues to attract customers for its latest generation product, the DTN-X. It wants to land a big Tier 1 customer like Verizon. With about $200 million in cash on its balance sheet and the next phase of growth on its way, Infinera shares look very attractive today. There’s been a rumor going around that Cisco might want to buy the company, but that’s not likely. Infinera has a solid future ahead of it, which is why John and David are buying more shares for their portfolio.
