Bear of the Day

We have downgraded our recommendation on NII Holdings, Inc. (NIHD) to Underperform backed by our assessment that the company s nightmare will continue in the near future. NII Holdings reported dismal financial results for the third quarter of 2011. Both the top line and bottom line were well below the Zacks Consensus Estimates.

Management has slashed its fiscal 2011 financial outlook, mainly driven by the volatile macro-economic condition coupled with significant depreciation of several Latin American currencies in comparison with U.S. dollars. Moreover, stiff competitive scenarios in Latin American markets are other impediments for such a reduced outlook.

We believe intensifying competition and increased promotional expenses may reduce the company's near-term growth opportunities. We do not find any immediate catalysts and expect NII Holdings to report weak financial results for the company's 4th quarter.
