Comcast Earnings: What’s Good for the Goose…

In reviewing Comcast’s earnings report, I couldn’t help but think of the saying, “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander.” It may not be quite the right analogy, but in the long-term relationship that is Comcast + Motorola, it certainly feels appropriate.

Despite a recent Wall Street Journal article suggesting that, “the long-term future of cable… is murky,” Comcast has proven that the short-term future at least is quite profitable. Comcast reported double-digit cable revenue growth including an 88% increase in digital phone revenues, a 21% increase in high-speed data revenues and an 8% increase in video revenues.

Higher revenues also meant higher amounts of spending in Q1 2007, and that’s of course where Motorola comes in. Cable capital expenditures increased more than 50% from Q1 2006, and as a major equipment provider for Comcast, that’s a very good indicator for Motorola. Motorola provides voice, video and data broadband equipment and expertise to Comcast. Good news all around.
