Bulls Say, Bears Say

Bulls

Motorola’s higher-growth, higher-margin, software-related businesses are becoming a larger portion of overall revenue. This will expand firmwide margins and opens a long runway of potential double-digit-percentage growth in each relevant segment.

Bears

If more governments use their power to unilaterally decrease Motorola’s pricing and/or threaten contracts, like what has happened in the UK, it would be a headwind to growth.
