On CAPS, 97% of the 529 members who have rated TriQuint believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Star shastashadow, who is ranked in the top 15% of our community, and rcjansen.
Just last month, shastashadow tapped TriQuint as a particularly smart pick: "This is a long term play (think at least 5-10 years). It has no debt ... and is looking to continue growing. I expect this company to take advantage of smartphone tech and the wave it is creating."
Over the next five years, in fact, TriQuint is expected to grow its bottom line at a brisk rate of 17.5% annually. That's faster than listed rivals like ANADIGICS (15.7%), Avago (12.5%), and RF Micro (15.8%).
CAPS member rcjansen elaborates on the TriQuint growth opportunity:
Growth for this top maker of [components] for mobile phones/tablets is secured for at least 2011/2012 by the growth of mobile computing using cellular communications. Their strategy of providing customers a comprehensive solution of RF, PA, and filters of leading edge solutions should keep them either near or in the lead. Capacity limitations held back revenue growth in late 2010, but those restraints are being addressed and should be completely addressed by 4Q2011.
