Jul 23rd 2012 - Edison Investment Research today published a report on Comptel entitled "Bittersweet H1". In summary, the report says:
Comptel’s Q2 was clearly disappointing from a financial perspective. Lead indicators look more positive, however, with the order backlog at record levels and interest in the company’s new products, especially Social Analytics, seen as high. We need to see further evidence that costs are being brought under control and that interest in new products is turning into orders. However, the stock is trading at eye-catching value multiples, and delivery on these fronts could generate substantial upside.
