InvenSense -19.8% AH on soft FQ1 guidance

  • InvenSense (INVN) guides on its FQ4 CC for FQ1 revenue of $63M-$66M and EPS of $0.07-$0.08, below a consensus of $69.1M and $0.16. Top customer Samsung is expected to continue accounting for a mid-30s % of sales.
  • The company still expects 25%-35% FY15 (ends March '15) revenue growth; the consensus is at 29.2%.
  • The outlook comes after InvenSense posted mixed FQ4 results. Oppenheimer downgraded shares a month ago, citing competition and the timing of image stabilization/wearable design win ramps.

    Furthermore, guidance for fiscal 2015 is 70 to 75 cents, which is below consensus of 85 cents. See further discussion in the comments of my article.

    Coming back from the lows, now "only" down about 15% AH's. Lots of volume for an after hour stock....momentum plays are getting punished in theis market badly when they slow down or have a hiccup, and INVN is NOT proving to be an exception to that.
    But - I still believe in wearables, the internet of things, gaming and spacial location, all newer and growing markets. And INVN is right there in the middle of them all.

    Short term hiccup. Long term INVN shareholders are likely to do well. I've been waiting for a pullback to get in on this one. I believe now might be the time...

    Even if they hit the mid-point, which is 72.5 cents per share for the year, it is a PE of less than 25! This is for a high growth company for which we don't even know all the use cases for :)
