Dow 40,000!

May 20th, 2017 · No Comments

A pundit argues that the S&P can double in five years, or sooner; we kick the tires of the reasoning behind this. One part of the argument seems actually reasonable – the flattened and elongated business cycle – although even then we think his prediction is a stretch. It’s the second part of the reasoning […]

It’s That China Slowdown Again, But Acacia Communications Will Come Back Stronger

May 15th, 2017 · No Comments

Another optical network company has fallen by the wayside on a China slowdown. Acacia’s fall has been exaggerated by a secondary offering, a large dependence on China and an unusually high customer concentration. But we see little reason not to expect substantial growth to return to this former high-growth company, so we think the shares […]

May 15th, 2017 · No Comments

Ctrip, the Chinese online travel giant, has finally broken out of its trading range.

Shopify Shares Go Parabolic, This Cannot Continue

May 14th, 2017 · No Comments

Shopify is a fast growing company, but its share price is growing much faster. There was already almost an order of magnitude between the two growth rates the last four months. But rather than a slow-down, the share price is actually accelerating, going parabolic. We simply argue that something will have to give sooner rather […]

Masimo Is A Terrific Company, But The Stock Is Fully Valued

May 14th, 2017 · No Comments

Masimo has unique products that set the company up for a continuation of years of steady growth. However, the share price has grown much faster than the underlying growth, and something had to give. Even after the sell-off, the shares trade at a pretty firm multiple, so we see limited immediate upside. Masimo Is A […]

May 12th, 2017 · Comments Off on Ubiquiti Networks: Taking On Corporate And Consumer Markets

After entering the service provider and small business market, Ubiquiti is now gearing up for taking on the enterprise and consumer markets. Given the successful history of the previous market conquests, we wouldn’t bet against Ubiquiti, even if there are many that do. But both these markets have different requirements so it won’t be plain […]

Applied Optoelectronics: Optical Network Woes? What Optical Network Woes?

May 9th, 2017 · Comments Off on Applied Optoelectronics: Optical Network Woes? What Optical Network Woes?

Here is another optical networking company that has escaped the concerns about a slowing demand from China. In fact, their business is booming and they’re selling all they can and building out capacity as fast as they can. We think this is a wave that has considerable mileage left.

How To Survive The Optical Networking Shakeout

May 8th, 2017 · Comments Off on How To Survive The Optical Networking Shakeout

One way to escape the shakeout is demonstrated by Lumentum, which looks like having won Apple as a customer for a new big market opportunity, 3D Sensing. The shares rallied on this likelihood, despite a disappointing third quarter and disturbingly soft fourth-quarter guidance. Is most of the good news priced in? How To Survive The […]
