Strong Q3 Results, On Track Arris Integration Driving Rally In CommScope's Stock

CommScope (NASDAQ:COMM), a provider of infrastructure solutions for communication and entertainment networks, has seen it stock price rally by 24% over the last month. The rally was primarily driven by stronger-than-expected Q3 results which were reported on November 7. The company’s adjusted EPS stood at $0.55 per diluted share, versus the consensus estimate of $0.44. Additionally, the company looks poised to realize annual synergies of $75 Mil in FY 2020 from the integration of Arris International.

We step back from these recent swings to review CommScope’s performance over the last few years, as a context for what might come next. Our Interactive dashboard – Why Is CommScope Stock Up 24% Over The Last Month? – reviews the near term reasons and the big picture.
