On CAPS, 95% of the 354 members who have rated TTM believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include Txmarine2007 and All-Star Seansonfire, who is ranked in the top 10% of our community.
Just last month, Txmarine2007 tapped TTM as a possible way to bite into Apple:
This stock has a lot of room to grow. If they are able to keep supplying Apple and other distributors then they are in for a good run. I see it reaching at least $22 a share.
Over the next five years, in fact, TTM is expected to grow its bottom line at solid rate of 19.9% annually. That's faster than competitors Amphenol (11.7%) and Sanmina (14.8%), as well as DDi
CAPS All-Star Seansonfire expanded last month on the growth opportunity:
TTM Technologies has become one of the leaders in Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs) for advanced devices; specifically tablets, phones, and other handheld devices. ... It was also recently reported in DigiTimes that TTM has been selected to supply Apple with the PCBs for the IPAD 2. ...
This is not confirmed but if it is true it will yield a huge upside for the stock. A lot of this is already priced into the stock as you can see it has risen significantly over the past 3 months, but I think if it is all true there is still tremendous upside, and if not it still shows strong growth as others try to compete for the new tablet market they will need these high level PCBs.
