Following a disappointing 2018 for Maxar Technologies, where shares price lost over 90% of its value between early 2018 and 2019, TSX:MAXR is seeing a large growth. TSX:MAXR is up more than 81% in its 2ndquarter.

The company has had a strong transition away from a capital-intensive business model and is moving towards a lighter model allowing for higher margins and a strong return on capital. It appears as though the company is starting to reverse course.
