    This company reliably beats and raises! I wish I had heard about it before ~2014.

    I did in 2008; rode it all the way down to zip.
    But it's slowly coming back...

    I was lucky to jump on SWKS about a year ago, which seems to have been good timing (fingers crossed). But yeah, it is a great company and it has a knack for beating across the board (including guidance) for many quarters in a row. Furthermore, if you compare their results with those of their competitors, it is clear they have a technological advantage.


    If I were better organized I would have written a couple of articles about SWKS last year, and then none of you guys would have an excuse for missing it. But alas, I never get around to writing a full article, but I have been praising SWKS in various comment sections and message boards for a year now.

    PS It should be also noted that SWKS started a new dividend today. 0.11 per share, 1.1% forward yield.

    Read every glowing quarterly report for years, and owned it big, then in Sep 2012, I got slammed and could not figure out why. So I got out in a tale of caution, losing money at the end. Now I see it was the big boys setting me up for the sucker punch and taking the trophy home. Live and learn.
