On CAPS, 96% of the 493 members who have rated Anadigics believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include All-Stars Lordrobot and tulipomania, both of whom are ranked in the top 15% of our community.

Earlier this summer, Lordrobot urged Fools to get on the same bullish wavelength:

This is a [radio frequency] semiconductor company. It is small but it has the same kind of power amp circuits that are necessary for the wireless infrastructure. This whole sector will lead.

In an earlier pitch, tulipomania expanded on the chip maker as a good place to bet some chips:

They have more cash than debt and have been growing revenue steadily over the years. ... Furthermore, consumers will gradually begin demanding 3G from their phones and better laptop connectivity, jump started by the convenience demonstrated by the iPhone (and eventually others). Consumer demand may not spike right away, especially if times are tough, but eventually it will happen. [Anadigics] is small and has a lot of room to grow.
