On CAPS, 91% of the 164 members who have rated Integrated Silicon believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include TheStreetOutside and mjs504.

Just yesterday, TheStreetOutside brought the stock's confusing price action to our community's attention: "Reporting record revenues and share price still suffering. Very large order backlog (gives us a view into the future). With a bright future and still selling at a PEG of 0.44 and $3/share cash, the Street will catch on again at some point."

In addition to posting record revenues of $71.2 million, Integrated Silicon more than doubled its net income in the most recent quarter. Management's laser-like focus on niche industries like networking, industrial, and automotive seems to be servicing as a reasonable moat against larger memory device players including Micron, Cypress, and Integrated Device. In fact, shares of Integrated Silicon have almost doubled over the past year, while those same rivals sport flat to negative returns.

Thanks to the stock's recent weakness, however, CAPS member mjs504 believes Integrated Silicon is still very much a tasty takeover target:

Look for [Integrated Silicon] to continue to outperform as technology begins to heat up (that's right you haven't seen anything yet). Total revenue will continue to grow this year as they work through a huge backlog of orders, allowing the company to make a strong play for continued growth in 2011. I normally don't speculate on takeovers, but [Integrated Silicon] is looking like a prime target if the price doesn't climb to the $15-18 range in the near future.
