The company has had a rough year, but still has a chance to be a leader in the Internet of Things.

In the not-so-distant future, you won't need to run home at the end of the day to check and see if you need more milk before going to the grocery store. Your refrigerator will simply tell you. Take this simple example, extrapolate it across the globe into countless industries, and you get an idea for what the next decade of technological advancement could bring.

As you might expect, the companies that help drive this innovation stand to be huge winners, as do their shareholders. One company many investors believe has the potential to be a huge long-term winner is CalAmp ( CAMP -1.58% ).

So far this year, however, shareholders haven't had much to brag about. Shares are down almost 30% since the beginning of the year, and Wall Street doesn't seem too happy with the company. Why is that, and what should investors really be watching moving forward? To find out, check out the slideshow below.

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis – even one of our own – helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
