"Next year's average estimate for revenue is $646.4 million. The average EPS estimate is $0.12."
They are spending it on marketing.
OCZ gross margin is low at about 22% and of that 80% is spent on sales & marketing.
It is not surprising that their market share and revenue are growing.
Probably typical strategy if you want to be bought-out.
Presumably, at some point they don't need to spend so much on marketing and can crank that % down and then make a profit.
Making a regular loss in the early phase has the advantage of not paying taxes.
Ok as long as they don't run out of cash.
On one hand you say " typical strategy if you want to be bought-out" and then on the other hand you say "Ok as long as they don't run out of cash". Why would an acquirer want a company that may have issues down the line with cash? The big picture looks ugly here.
FIO has huge ramp up next 2 qtrs. OCZ not so much.
FIO is the darling in the space. OCZ is the me too turd that can't keep up with the enterprise market.
100 mil is revenue and HUGE MISS.
$2 is coming soon and in my opinion- OCZ will be out of business by 2014.
Just look at operating margins. Ugly. Would be surprised if they even make a profit for fiscal 2013. I'm still baffled as to what exactly their business strategy is assuming of course their ultimate goal is to become highly profitable. At the moment it ain't working.
"I don't think OCZ is trying to make profit right now."
See that's why i am baffled. I honestly don't think management knows what they are trying to do. Why would you flood the consumer market with cheap SSD if you are hoping to impress enterprise clients? This reflects badly on there marketing dept. imo.
FIO OEM agreements - CSCO, DELL, IBM, Supermicro, HPQ
FIO partnerships- MLNX,Nutanix,NexGen,NTAP and I can go on.
FIO enterprise customers - RAX, AAPL, CRM, FB, P, CTXS, and i can go on for a while here but won't b/c you get the point.
OCZ is a loser. period.
no MSFT deal. NONE. NADA.
Funny how you say these things yet you hide behind some made up name on yahoo finance. Theo may have been wrong on his timing but he had enough conviction to say it with his name attached to it. This is something no one else here can say.
Who calls themselves imaloser? It's just pathetic.
i see you can find none. yes FIO wrote software to give its drives an edge over places like stec and ocz. it works very well as you can see from all the contracts they landed.
but the bottom line is ocz does not have a contract with microsoft like you claim.
Here you go Newbie lmao read these 4 ANALyst reports maybe then you will a novice clue....
