  • Cognex: Road Ahead is Blurry (CGNX)

    Cognex (CGNX) , a manufacturer of machine vision sensors, came in with 2nd quarter sales that rose 11%. However, the company missed its earnings per share number by nine cents. Management did point out improvements in the margin side, which rose to 16 percent from 8 percent a year prior. Unfortunately, the future guidance is what is hurting shares so far today. The company is expecting its third-quarter profit to come in between 14 cents and 18 cents a share, and revenues between $62 million and $65 million. These numbers are below Wall Street expectations a profit of 23 cents per share and revenues of $66.1 million. Cognex Corp does have a decent dividend yield of 2.73%, based on last night's closing stock price of $21.94. For investors, we would like to see the company put in a solid quarter before we think the name offers a compelling reason to own it. We prefer a company like Badger Meter (BMI) for investors that want exposure in this space. Cognex (CGNX) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com Rating of 3.2 out of 5 stars.
