Guru Investment Theses on Motorola Solutions Inc

Jerome Dodson Comments on Motorola Solutions - Jul 26, 2016

Motorola Solutions (NYSE:MSI), a provider of communications services and networks for public safety workers, sliced 46 basis points from the Fund’s return, as its stock fell 12.9% from $75.70 to $65.97. Just last quarter, Motorola was one of our biggest winners, as investors cheered the acquisition of Airwave, Great Britain’s public safety communications network. Those cheers, however, turned to boos when the British voted to leave the EU. Investor sentiment soured even further on the deal, as regulators initiated a review to ensure that it won’t suppress competition. Our positive opinion of Airwave hasn’t changed, as we believe it will be significantly accretive to earnings while strengthening Motorola’s international presence. The deal was cleared by regulators after the quarter ended, and we think Britain may actually need to increase its spending on public safety as it prepares to leave the European Union.

Investors cheered the acquisition of Airwave, Great Britain’s public safety communications network, which will increase Motorola’s earnings by more than 20%.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Motorola Solutions - Apr 22, 2016

Motorola Solutions (NYSE:MSI) is a global leader in commercial radio systems and public safety communication infrastructure products and services. Motorola Solutions’ shares benefited from board membership and capital infusion by respected technology private equity firm SilverLake Partners, and reduced fears that the company’s core public safety radio products were becoming obsolete. Furthermore, Motorola’s aggressive share repurchase throughout the last 12 months increased per share value. We believe Motorola Solutions will continue to repurchase shares as long as the stock price remains at attractive levels.

Wallace Weitz Comments on Motorola Solutions - Oct 27, 2015

Motorola Solutions (NYSE:MSI) is a global leader in public safety communication infrastructure products and services as well as commercial radio systems. Motorola Solutions’ stock price increased as investors gained comfort that the Silver Lake investment would be beneficial to Motorola’s long-term strategy. Although the stock price has been appreciating, we still believe that Motorola remains a misunderstood business. Investors are focused on the prospect that Motorola’s core Public Safety radio business will be disrupted by Public Safety LTE technology. We, on the other hand, are confident that Public Safety LTE will be additive to MSI’s sales and earnings. In addition, we believe Motorola Solutions will continue to repurchase shares as long as the stock price remains at attractive levels.
