In the following video, Senior Technology Analyst Eric Bleeker takes a look at tech stocks that soared today. First off, Eric looks at OmniVision, which just issued massive foward guidance. The company forecasted revenue at $355 million to $390 million next quarter, while Wall Street had been expecting $270 million. Its pretty clear OmniVision has taken larger share in the upcoming iPhone 5 with that kind of guidance, but Eric is surprised the company's gains today were so low especially when you consider another iPhone supplier that recently posted similarly bullish foward guidance, Cirrus Logic has seen massive gains since.
Second up is Splunk. The big data company was up 13% after reporting better than expected earnings and sits in the central of a massive trend in big data. However, at about 25 times trailing sales, Eric thinks its a bit pricey for investors out there and recommends it as a watchlist stock if it pulls back. To see Eric's full thoughts, watch the video below.
