Just last week, one of those Fools, Contraban, succinctly summed up the InvenSense bull case for our community:

[STMicroelectronics] lawsuit is holding this stock back. ... This is a concern, however the new products are positioned well. MEMS gyroscope Technology has a high bar to entry. Low power consumption of their chips is critical for mobile devices, plus products are designed for integration into devices. Additionally they can be easily adapted to plug in units. Gesture control is on its way and I believe InvenSense is positioned to cash in big. INVN is big enough to deliver the high volume of products that will be needed, however small enough to experience large growth.
