HLIT Harmonic
Reuters Take
Brief Description: Harmonic Inc. designs, manufactures and sells products and systems that enable network operators to provide a range of interactive and advanced digital services that include digital video, video-on-demand (VOD), high-definition television, high-speed Internet access and telephony. The Company's products generally fall into two categories: video processing products, and edge and access products. In addition, Harmonic provides network management software and has introduced new application software products. The Company also provides technical support services to its customers worldwide. Its video processing products provide broadband operators with the ability to accept a variety of signals from different sources in different protocols, and to organize, manage and distribute this content to maximize use of the available bandwidth.

Financial Synopsis: For the six months ended 30 June 2006, Harmonic Inc.'s revenues decreased 17% to $109.5M. Net loss totalled $8.1M, up from $824K. Revenues reflect increased sales revenue. Net loss reflects decreased gross margins, higher research and development expenses and increased provision for income taxes. HLIT is a provider of digital video, broadband optical networking and IP delivery systems to cable, satellite, telecom and broadcast network operators.

Hey do your other companies have an Emmy? http://tinyurl.com/y343ho Well HLIT does.

Yes the valuation sucks, but with current qtr growth estimates of 550.0% who cares ;-) Seriously I'm only recing this as it has been in my real portfolio since May 04 and it's way overdue for a review. This rec should force me to do that. After a quick look the other reason is I reckon it deserves more than two stars in this crazy CAPS world. This baby provides the balance to my NFLX holding, both could succeed, but if NFLX goes down HLIT will be the one providing the technology to do it.
