  • Rambus posted solid gains in the top and bottom line for Q1 FY2021 and the forecast calls for its first GAAP profit per share in the last 15 quarters.
  • There are a number of things to be said in favor of long Rambus, although there are also arguments to be made against it.

Good article but I don't agree on two points: 1. Rambus isn't expensive with a forward p/e of 14. Other semiconductor companies are far over 30 and increased their stock price some 100%. 2. Most people still don't believe in this company because of their lack of transparency. They never tell you the detailed numbers, they don't talk about their partnerships/clients (they never disclose the conditions), they are vague on many things, the management changed too many times, they bought "strategic companies to boost their numbers" buy they were a often a flop (example the lighting sector, the ticket system they sold then to a UK company ecc). So this stock has a really great technology but will need some more time to let forget their past disasters. On a 5 year time hoizon I would give them for sure an outperform rating because they will be in the most tech markets.

Rambus looks better if forward P/E is used, although it's still higher than what some other semis trade at (with faster growth to boot). However, it's just one metric and one that is prone to changes/revisions at it relies on making guesstimates that don't always pan out.

To get a more accurate representation, it's best to use a composite view. If one metric says one thing and all the other metrics say the opposite, then the latter should trump the former as they are in the majority.
