Canaccord Genuity maintains a 'Hold' on Novatel (NASDAQ: NVTL) price target of $4.00.

Analsyt, T. Michael Walkley, said, "Novatel reported Q4/11 sales of $110M and pro forma EPS of $0.05 versus our $113M/($0.05) estimates. Improved operating expenses led to the stronger EPS results. Q1/12 sales guidance of $85M-$110M was below our $112M estimate with the wide range reflecting the uncertain timing of a key MiFi product launch for Verizon (NYSE: VZ). While we anticipate steadily improving sales for mobile computing during 2012 and a strong H2/12 ramp for M2M sales, we maintain our rating."

"...we are lowering our pro forma 2012 EPS estimate from $0.33 to $0.14 due to our lowered mobile computing estimates. We believe Novatel should post solid earnings growth exiting 2012, and we introduce our 2013 estimate of $0.30."
