On CAPS, 97% of the 249 members who have rated TriQuint believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include joats5 and All-Star TSIF, who is ranked in the top 2% of our community.

Just last Friday, joats5 tapped TriQuint's recent profit miss as a can't-miss opportunity:

Parts provider for the coming "Cellular Tsunami". Down almost 30% on recent bad earning report but indications are that they still are positioned to benefit from global economic surge in 2010.

In a pitch from one day earlier, TSIF adds some color to the stock's latest haircut:

TriQuint announced a 7% revenue slide, which on the surface doesn't seem to warrant a 28% stock hit. They also announced that orders from one of their two [Korean] customers were cut drastically as the customer burned off inventory. ... For a company whose share price has been near a 5 year high and that continues good growth and has minimal debt, I'm bullish on TriQuint at this entry point. It may take it a few quarters to convince Mr. Market … but with chip sells to many of the major handset makers it appears to have some decent momentum.
