Heavily-shorted InvenSense (INVN +25.7%) continues shooting higher after beating FQ4 estimates. FQ1 guidance isn't great - revenue of $53M-$55M and EPS of $0.12-$0.14 vs. a consensus of $56.4M and $0.15 - but the motion sensor chipmaker also talked on its CC about a strong backlog and a solid relationship with Samsung, and didn't do anything to shoot down reports of an iPhone 5S design win. Top rival and current iPhone motion sensor supplier STMicroelectronics (STM -0.1%) is missing out on today's rally. (earlier)
