    NeraTel’s Results Push Shares Down To $0.65, Time To Buy?

    I was somewhat surprised at the plunge since I remember that the full year 2014 results although not positive were flattish when compared to the year before. We don’t usually see big negative shifts in a single quarter in a business as usual scenario. So, it is important to ask whether the decline is due to something that has permanently damaged NeraTel’s ability to deliver the goods, so to speak.
