Motorola Equity Withdrawal (MEW)

Motorola Gives A Piece of Itself to Emerson
Motorola has had a difficult recent past. Despite rising 2.6% over the past three months, and 3.2% over the past six, it's fallen 26.5% over the past year. Much of the reason has stemmed from a drop in investor confidence after they perceived the company has run in place following the success of its Razr phone, rather than use the momentum of its success to gain a greater slice of the handset market.

A difficult recent past? A drop in investor confidence? Has run in place? Momentum of past success? Going after a bigger slice of the market?

I know this sounds crazy, but ever since yesterday on the road, I've been seeing this shape. Shaving cream, pillows. Dammit! I know this. I know what this is! This means something. This is important. - Roy Neary, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, 1977
