Guru Investment Theses on Motorola Solutions Inc

Jerome Dodson Comments on Motorola Solutions - Nov 01, 2016

Motorola Solutions (NYSE:MSI), a provider of communications services and networks for public safety workers, added 58 basis points to the Fund’s return, as its stock rose 15.6% from $65.97 to $76.28. The stock climbed after the company reported quarterly earnings that exceeded expectations and guided to an acceleration in revenue growth in the second half of 2016. Demand for Motorola’s network support services in North America is increasing, while the recent acquisition of Airwave, Great Britain’s public safety communications network, is providing a significant boost internationally.

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.

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.

Motorola Solutions (NYSE:MSI) received a $1 billion investment from private-equity firm Silver Lake. The company plans to use part of this investment to buy back up to $2 billion of its stock through a modified Dutch Auction tender offer and to also build out its software and services business through strategic partnerships and acquisitions.

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.

New and Improved CrimeReports Gives Millions of Citizens the Opportunity to Interact and Work With Law Enforcement

Popular Citizen-Facing Crime Map Just Got More Powerful With New Two-Way Information-Sharing and Engagement Capabilities

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Oct 5, 2016) -

The new CrimeReports -- now available to the public at www.crimereports.com -- includes an easy to use map where citizens can filter crime information to see when (time, day), where (neighborhoods, precincts), and what types of crime are being reported, as well as draw further insights from basic trend graphs and lightweight analytics
Law enforcement agencies, citizens, media and other organizations can easily embed customized views of CrimeReports on websites, as well as easily share details of an incident via social media
Citizens can share tips and register private security cameras with police, as well as sign up for email alerts on any device, including user-friendly mobile applications available for download on Android and iOS

The new and improved CrimeReports crime-sharing tool from Socrata and Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI), is now available to the general public at www.crimereports.com, as well as user-friendly mobile applications downloadable for Android and iOS. Designed to help law enforcement agencies communicate local activity, CrimeReports is available to help citizens find, explore, and interact with crime data, trends, and statistics. "Citizens are increasingly expecting government to provide modern, digital services, just as they experience in their professional and personal lives," says Robin Jones, General Manager, Public Safety, at Socrata. "The new CrimeReports allows agencies to not just publish data in an easy-to-interpret and accessible way, but to provide insights and context that enables members of the community to understand the data and engage in being part of the community policing effort." More than 1,100 Agencies Report Crime via CrimeReports CrimeReports is one of the largest, most comprehensive citizen-facing crime-mapping websites in North America, serving 1,100 law enforcement agencies and providing the 100-million people served by those agencies with crime information and personalized alerts. Using its expertise in working with hundreds of governments around the world to publish data in a consumable way, Socrata's new design includes an improved mapping interface that makes it easier for citizens to find incidents and see additional data about individual crimes, as well as answer other questions they have about crime trends in their area. Additional filters for crime results, including date range and crime type, and numerous other features enable citizens to draw additional insights (how-to video available here). "Improving the quality of life for the citizens of Harris County is a primary goal of the Harris County Sheriff's Office, and by taking a proactive stance to develop an informed citizenry, we can meet this challenge," says Harris County (TX) Sheriff Ron Hickman. "We are providing CrimeReports for our communities as a vital tool to increase trust, encourage more engagement, and empower our citizens to be additional eyes and ears for our agency." Agencies have already experienced increased web traffic and engagement during the beta release of the new CrimeReports. For example, Portland (Ore.) Police Bureau saw a 20x increase in traffic to CrimeReports when they embedded the crime map on their department's homepage. "The foundation for community policing starts by building trust and dialogue between our agency and the community members we serve," says Chief Michael Marshman, Portland Police Bureau. "CrimeReports allows us to form a dialogue based on transparency with our citizens about the crimes and trends happening in their neighborhoods and what we, and they, can do to help provide us with the critical information we may need to help us solve the crime, make the arrest, and keep our communities safe." The new CrimeReports allows citizens to engage with law enforcement by signing up for customized alerts about crime in an area and the ability to share incidents via social media. In addition to providing accurate, timely information, the new site encourages citizens to submit tips and register private security cameras, in an effort to help increase neighborhood safety. Additionally, agencies can use Socrata's newly released Perspectives storytelling product to provide further narrative and context to the data published in CrimeReports to help engage with communities. "CrimeReports has become an important tool for government agencies sharing increased information with the citizens they serve," says Tom Guthrie, Vice President, Motorola Solutions Smart Public Safety. "Agencies can further increase community engagement by using Motorola Solutions' TipSoft, which is built into CrimeReports. The service allows citizens to send anonymous tips to police and CrimeStopper organizations while allowing agencies to send emergency alerts to residents." The new CrimeReports also helps satisfy local and national initiatives for accountability and transparency such as the White House Police Data Initiative and the university and college-security related Clery Act. "The new CrimeReports creates a mechanism for law enforcement to demonstrate a commitment towards openness, transparency, and an informed citizenry, to further progress public trust," says Jim Burch, Police Foundation Vice President, Strategic Initiatives. "Trust enables opportunities for dialogue, including an open channel for sharing information back to the law enforcement agency. It sets in motion a positive feedback loop and a force multiplier for police agencies." About Socrata:
