Gateway Is More than Just a Box Maker

Non-PC sales drove second-quarter results for computer maker.


Gateway’s (GTW) second-quarter performance provided more evidence that the firm continues to be one of the more attractive investment ideas in the PC sector.

Although year-over-year sales growth was in line with expectations at 12%, Gateway managed to report earnings a penny ahead of estimates on Thursday evening by bringing in more high-margin non-PC revenue. More so than raw top-line growth, it's this stream of "beyond the box" revenue that sets Gateway apart from the rest of the PC crowd.
