InvenSense (INVN -1%) is "likely shut out of the iPhone opportunity this year," says Maxim's Ashok Kumar, countering several reports claiming the opposite. Kumar, who's still reiterating a Buy, says checks point to the iPhone 5S using most of the components found in the iPhone 5, which suggests current motion sensor suppliers STMicroelectronics (STM) and AKM won't be kicked out. However, he adds checks do point to a next-gen Nexus 7 design win for InvenSense, and considers a next-gen iPad Mini win possible. InvenSense only fell in line with the market today, which suggests investors (like many of Kumar's peers) are still expecting a 5S win.
