Just last month, one of those Fools, ajbakerjr, succinctly summed up the Cirrus bull case for our community:

Close affiliation with market-leader [Apple] is a good thing (despite current negative sentiment). Plus the company's audio technology continues to expand its reach/penetration in the smartphone and tablet market, making it far from a one-trick pony. This is one smart way to play the mobile revolution.
