  • Emerging Markets...Investing For The Next Big Trend

    By Lawrence Weinman - August 3, 2013 | Tickers: BIDU, CHL, EWZ, OVTI, EWX, VWO

    Investors would be making a big mistake if they eliminate holdings in emerging market stocks. Instead of giving up on emerging markets investors should adjust to take advantage of China’s new economic focus on consumer spending rather than infrastructure.Several emerging markets ETFs offer an opportunity to implement that strategy

    Many articles have declared the “end of emerging markets” .Massive outflows from emerging markets funds and ETFs indicate that more »

  • Avoid this Supplier as Apple Sales Decline

    By Chris Lau - June 26, 2013 | Tickers: CRUS, NXPI, OVTI, SWKS

    Bearishness in Apple is creating an opportunity for investors interested in the company's component suppliers. When Apple traded below $400 intraday, the decline was based on worries from an analyst that the company had high iPhone channel inventories. Wal-Mart and AT&T also said they would cut the price of the iPhone 5 to $129 on a 2 year contract. Apple, along with suppliers, sold off in recent sessions more »

  • A Few Reasons Why This Explosive Stock Is Worth Buying

    By Harsh Chauhan - June 4, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, OVTI, TSLA | Editor's Choice

    When the Street unfairly punished OmniVision Technologies (NASDAQ: OVTI) a quarter ago for failing to provide a snazzy outlook, it was clear that this overreaction would open up opportunities for astute investors. Well, those investors certainly celebrated this weekend with a bottle of champagne as OmniVision shares overreacted on the positive side after it released its fourth-quarter results.

    The stock soared close to 20% as OmniVision delivered a heavy beat more »

  • This Stock Plunged, But Expect a Rebound Soon

    By Chris Lau - June 3, 2013 | Tickers: CRUS, NUAN, OVTI

    Ever since Barclays presented Cirrus Logic (NASDAQ: CRUS) in negative light at its TMT (technology, media, and telecommunications) conference, shares have dropped back to the teens. Barclays said that it expects lower average selling prices would hurt sales this year. Concern was high that that its largest customer represented 85% of revenue in the fourth quarter.

  • Which Double-Digit Friday Mover Is a Buy?

    By Brian Nichols - June 3, 2013 | Tickers: GES, KKD, OVTI

    Gaining Despite Fundamental Loss

    Guess? (NYSE: GES) is trading higher by 10.5% after the company reported a mixed earnings report. In the quarter, Guess? missed revenue expectations as total sales declined 5.2% year-over-year, yet its EPS was far better than the consensus.

    Guess? has seen its stock increase 32% in 2013, therefore it’s hard to argue that expectations were low. When you look at the fundamental performance more »

  • An Apple Supplier at a Great Price

    By Matthew Frankel - May 22, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, OVTI, SNE

    I try to focus some of my attention on finding investment opportunities that are not well known and/or are undervalued relative to their potential for growth. One such company is OmniVision Technologies (NASDAQ: OVTI), a manufacturer of image sensor chips that are used in a variety of electronic devices. After a few years of disappointing earnings, this company that traded for more than $30 per share less than two more »

  • Did the Street Crush This Stock With Unrealistic Expectations?

    By Harsh Chauhan - March 1, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, OVTI, TSLA

    Predicting OmniVision Technologies(NASDAQ: OVTI) outlook is like shooting at a moving target. You can never predict which route the stock will take after earnings since the company has never been consistent about its outlook, and this makes investing in the stock a very volatile proposition.

    Hence, the fact that OmniVision once again guided way below Street expectations for the current quarter after upstaging them the previous two times shouldn more »

  • Can This Apple Supplier Sustain its Momentum After Earnings?

    By Harsh Chauhan - February 25, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, OVTI

    OmniVision Technologies (NASDAQ: OVTI), a developer of digital imaging solutions, will be releasing its third-quarter results on Feb. 28. Investors would be expecting OmniVision to keep its streak of Street beating quarters intact apart from sounding out a decent outlook. The stock has done pretty well in 2013 so far, gaining just over 9%, and a good earnings report would certainly provide further momentum.

    But for that to happen, OmniVision more »

  • Nuance: Buy or Sell?

    By Chris Lau - February 15, 2013 | Tickers: NUAN, OVTI, SYNA

    Investors punished Nuance Communications (NASDAQ: NUAN) after the company reported quarterly earnings that missed estimates, and guided several quarters of weak sales in two core business areas. Nuance now expects healthcare and sales in emerging markets (“EMEA”) to be weaker than previously estimated.

    Nuance, whose core business offering is in converting spoken words to text, is facing a fundamental decline in medical transcription volumes. As electronic more »

  • Why $500 Is so Important for Apple Shares

    By Chris Lau - January 15, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, BBRY, CRUS, NOK, OVTI, QCOM

    Rumors briefly circulated that Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) could enter the “dirt-cheap” market. More recently, Apple shares traded down again $18.55, or down 3.57%, on Jan. 14. News media outlets reported supply orders were cut, prompting fear that iPhone 5 sales would not meet heightened expectations. The first rumor of a cheap iPhone smartphone was quickly dispelled from an interview with Phil Schiller, Apple’s SVP in a Chinese more »

  • An Apple Play Basket for the New Year

    By Harsh Chauhan - December 28, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, CRUS, OVTI, SWKS, TQNT

    I like Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) for two reasons -- 1. It revolutionized smartphones as we know them, and 2. It opened up new areas for investors to make money (apart from an investment in Apple itself). The company has been under pressure ever since it released the iPhone 5 for some reason or the other, and has seen its year-to-date return decline to a “lowly” 26% as of this writing. But more »

    Image sensor maker OmniVision Technologies (NASDAQ: OVTI) is expected to release its second-quarter results on November 29. While Fool analyst Seth Jayson has already done the number crunching and told us about the benchmarks OmniVision needs to satisfy, I will try to determine if it has the necessary firepower to meet, or even beat, them.

  • Consider Buying Apple and a Few Apple Plays Before the Good Times Begin

    By Harsh Chauhan - October 6, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, BRCM, CRUS, OVTI, SWKS

    It’s been around three weeks since the iPhone 5 was officially introduced to the world. But, Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) has faced flak from all over due to its lack of innovation in the iPhone 5, the Maps controversy, connection problems and what not. In addition, the company sold “only” 5 million iPhones over the first weekend this time, which missed analyst expectations by some distance.

    The situation mirrors the split between Macs and PCs in the 1980s and 1990s. Android is the PC: cheap, ubiquitous, and runs on a wide variety of phones from different manufacturers. The iPhone is elegant more »

  • This Apple Derivative Play is Back in Business

    By Harsh Chauhan - September 3, 2012 | Tickers: AAPL, CRUS, OVTI

    One quarter back, I had told you about a stock, an Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) derivative play, which was selling at a throwaway price at that time. The stock was beaten down massively after the Street focused more on its margin woes rather than its bright prospects.

    One quarter later, the stock has added some 21% to investors’ wealth since my last post and looks set to do better. Ironically, the more »
