Lumen Could Be Cogent In 5 Years
Cogent is a great business, and we think that it is a great model for Lumen. With the same markets as Lumen, just much more levered towards high growth CDN, Cogent shows what Lumen's long-term growth profile could become with upcoming investments. Lumen trades at a fraction of the Cogent multiple, and good exits in declining businesses will help them rapidly close the gap on those business profiles and hopefully multiples. Lumen is a turnaround story, but we think that the risk far outweighs the reward, and Cogent's strong revenue profile could be achieved in time. We actually think Lumen management is doing a good job, and that the business has actually been turning around longer than investors realised. Patience!
