Guru Investment Theses on Zebra Technologies Corp

John Rogers Comments on Zebra Technologies Corp - Oct 21, 2016

Also, thermal printer maker Zebra Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ZBRA) rose +38.94% due to a strong quarter. After adjusting for a tax benefit, its earnings per share were $1.34, crushing the $1.05 expectation. The company held its flat full year guidance. Wall Street had not previously believed in the company’s turnaround, but is clearly waking up. We think these numbers are just the beginning of the company’s good news.

John Rogers Comments on Zebra Technologies Corp - Jan 22, 2016

We also purchased shares of Zebra Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:ZBRA), the leading global supplier of thermal printing solutions. A current holding in our small cap separate account portfolio (and also an Ariel Fund holding more than a decade ago), we added this bar-code maker to the Fund because we view Zebra as an industry leader with a strong management team, positioned to benefit from global demand for asset tracking solutions.
