What: OmniVision Technologies
So what: The stock got whacked yesterday after a sell-side analyst suggested the company is losing market share and cut his price target on the stock. The analyst also suggested OmniVision might lose some or all of its iPhone business when the new iPhone 5 is launched later this year.
Now what: Current quarter guidance calls for non-GAAP EPS of $0.57 to $0.70, compared to a consensus estimate of $0.45, and revenue of $240 million to $260 million, compared to a consensus forecast of $219 million. At $30, the stock is trading at a P/E ratio of 12 times and a forward P/E ratio of about 11.9 times. Although risks remain, at this valuation the rewards seem to outweigh the risks.
