Avigilon Analyst's Theory On Ex-Execs: "Road to Riches"

Author: John Honovich, Published on Jun 23, 2014

Avigilon's stock tumbled after their CFO departed, a culmination of 4 executives out in half a year. Many investors and financial press commentators cited 'management turnover' as a concern.

Now, an Avigilon analyst has an intriguing new theory about why these executives were leaving and what Avigilon's CEO prefers.
