Avigilon "Probably Going To Zero Within The Next Two Years" Charges Analyst

Author: John Honovich, Published on May 18, 2016

The analyst who blasted Avigilon 2 weeks ago as being a Cash Strapped, Commodity Company is not backing down one bit.

Indeed, the original target was a drop of ~40%, the stock is already down 15% since her post was published, largely due to Avigilon's weakest quarter ever, and now the analyst is projecting zero.

In this note, we examine why the projection is completely wrong but why it hits on a critical strategic weakness for Avigilon.
