    They also hiked FY 2015 revenue guidance. They essentially said that 2015 revenue growth will come in at the very high end or above the previously guided 25-35%. Current analyst estimates are for 29% growth.


    Also they made it crystal clear that they have added apple as a client. Also they said that Apple will be taking their brand new 3rd gen chip.


    Overall this was a very good conf call. A lot of good news. I do not know why the stock is not flying 30% higher, I suspect a lot of investors, do not quite understand how INVN's business works or how the semi business works in general. When you are taking giant swaths of marketshare as invensense is doing now, you can expect profitability to be depressed for a while, because new clients require some hand holding and help, which means engineering resources.


    As the design wins play themselves out and production yields improve, the profits will start pouring in.

    The stock is not flying higher because this was not an especially good CC.


    My preview article nailed it: once again design wins predicted this quarter and already priced into the stock did not materialize, but they were able to include some of the anticipated revenue in guidance. That said there is reason to worry about continued disappointment.


    I've just submitted the update, with revised calculations.

    They're done with FY14 already. EPS guidance was a miss. See and ask questions in the just published article. I'm checking out of this thread.

    Obvious- the guy just want our clicks. He always claim that he perfectly predicted these from his previous articles. I rather listen to the cc and then make the decision. Sorry, you will not get my clicks.

    Given the sales growth and quite an optimistic guidance I also do not understand why there is no commensurate uptick in the price. Motley Fool subscribers are also confused.
