What does the future hold for Juniper?

Last week Juniper Networks released its third quarter results showing revenue of US$1 billion, up four per cent from the previous quarter and one per cent from the same quarter a year ago.

Yet as Jim Duffy of Network World U.S. points out in this analysis, things may not be well for the network equipment manufacturer. During a conference call with financial analysts the company said that the four quarter will show a drop in earnings. Is this a sign of a slowing global economy, as many other companies are reporting this month, or an indication of bigger trouble?

If you think so, then Duffy’s opinion of what Juniper needs to do to turn around its fortunes and spur growth will strike a chord. Better leadership, better execution, clearer direction are among the things he calls for. Read this and ponder.
