Corning Inc . (NYSE:GLW), a leading technology company, reported a 9% year-on-year (y-o-y) decline in its Q3 revenue, falling to $3.2 billion. The company's adjusted earnings per share also declined, standing at $0.45. This performance fell short of market expectations, reflecting the ongoing challenges posed by macroeconomic uncertainties.

The company's stock has been trading at a price-to-sales ratio below its five-year average and has seen a significant drop of 30% since 2021. This underperformance is notable when compared to the S&P 500 index, which Corning lagged behind in both 2021 and 2023.

Despite the disappointing results, Corning's stock still holds potential for growth. The company's stock is projected to reach a valuation of $31 per share based on an 18x P/E multiple and expected earnings of $1.71 per share in 2023.

A key factor contributing to Corning's revenue decline was a substantial 30% drop in optical communications sales. This was primarily due to fewer orders from mobile carriers, which led to a contraction in profit margin of 90 basis points y-o-y, decreasing to 7.5%.

Interestingly, despite the challenges faced by individual companies such as Corning, the Trefis High Quality (HQ) Portfolio has managed to consistently outperform the S&P 500. This can be attributed to its risk-averse and high return profile.
