Guru Investment Theses on ORBCOMM Inc

John Rogers Comments on ORBCOMM Inc. - Apr 21, 2016

Machine-to-machine communications company ORBCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ:ORBC) continued the nice run it began in late 2015, rising +39.92%. There was not much news in 2016, but as we mentioned in late 2015, the unfolding story was only starting to take hold and should have long legs in our view. With its full satellite “constellation” launched and operational, the company’s once-considerable capital expenditures will dwindle and profits can now fall to the bottom line. We have been selling into strength but still own the stock.
