What happened this year at Cirrus?
The year started out with a bang for the company, as it was able to ride the coattails of Apple
As the year progressed, Cirrus continued to closely mirror Apple's movements, which meant that it trended lower midyear. But that didn't stop Motley Fool Rising Star Eric Bleeker from buying shares of Cirrus instead of rival Citrix
Likewise, fellow Fool Anders Bylund isn't scared by the fact that Cirrus provides the majority of audio chips in Apple products. Bears argue that a drop-off in Apple's sales could be a death blow to Cirrus.
Instead, Andres thinks Cirrus is a buy above all the other Apple suppliers, including Texas Instruments
