Seeking Alpha: Forget The Temporary Worries, Lenovo Built To Continue Winning

Every time a new consumer tech gadget comes out, it seems like investors forget a simple a rule - sooner or later, everything becomes a commodity and success comes down to who can design, build, and ship at the most appealing cost structures. That's something that Lenovo (LNVGY.PK) has quite a bit of experience with, as it has used internal execution and significant acquisitions to become the world's #1 PC vendor and the #3 handset company.

I don't see any reason to believe that Lenovo is done. The company has started to build its server business, and may ultimately strike a deal with IBM (IBM) that would vault it into the #3 slot almost overnight. Likewise, the company is looking to take its growing mobile device business into the U.S. in 2014, and Lenovo's past success in the PC business suggests that investors shouldn't ignore the potential there.

There are risks that the Chinese PC market leads to some noise in the shares over the next quarter or two, but waiting for that to settle down could mean missing a few points in the stock. With long-term appreciation potential of more than 30% to 60%, Lenovo looks like a good play on emerging markets consumer and business spending.
