    • Hey it appears that I am going to be "Waiting for Godot" in this stock too. Oh well hope springs eternal!!! Maybe an up day tomorrow!!!

    • Timmy Boy. I should have never told you about the stock. Since you bought its dropping like all of your other picks! Ha.

    • Hey TX you have been posting great things about
      this company for three weeks but everytime you do the
      stock drops like a rock!!! How about giving it a break
      and maybe it will go up finally. Just an idea. Your
      buddy!!!

    • RFMD is still strong and will have good earnings
      again. Probably at or around the .30 range. I think this
      stock will or should be at least 65 again before
      earning and the will move higher towards 80 after
      earnings. It sounds like the only reason rfmd is moving
      down is because they need some cash. Is that all well
      that no reason to sell a stock.

    • I got a little greedy today. My buy limit @38.00
      was too low, but
      "THEY" were buying at about 12:30
      and between 3:00 and 4:00 = I'll be watching closely
      tomorrow, and my have to take what I can
      get.

      Long term I like the play.

    • I think one reason why RFMD tanked was the hugh
      quantity of shares sold recently from insiders.
      Txbanker23, how did you determine that TRW is going to sell
      another 300K? Yahoo and insidertrader.com don't mention
      any reference to it. I want to know so I can avoid
      these traps in the future.

    • Thank for the info. I am an Electrical Engineer so I know what they are talking about the technologies. Used to work for Motorola in Austin, TX.

      Long RFMD and good luck to all!

    • * Lower Costs, Improve Operating Margins. RF
      Micro's business had been
      adversely affected due to
      manufacturing constraints. High-volume manufacturing
      has
      been possible since the opening of the new fab last
      summer. Manufacturing
      costs have declined
      accordingly, while the company's gross profit and

      operating margins have improved steadily. This trend will
      likely continue as
      more capacity becomes available
      in the near-term.

    • Growth Strategy

      * Establish new OEM
      Relationships. RF Micro Devices' unique manufacturing

      process will allow the company to pursue new
      relationships among major
      providers of wireless equipment.
      The company's relationship with Nokia has

      strengthened as the company's new fabrication facility has
      successfully ramped
      over the last 12 months. Additionally,
      the new manufacturing facility has
      allowed RF
      Micro Devices to pursue new opportunities with other
      handset
      manufacturers. We believe that the Company
      will be supplying product to both
      Motorola and
      Ericsson in the future.

      * Continue to Invest in
      Silicon Products. While silicon was the first and is

      currently the most widely used element for manufacturing
      RFICs, it has been
      overshadowed by the new, "cutting
      edge" manufacturing processes including the
      HBT
      process. However, there are more opportunities readily
      available for RF
      Micro Devices in the silicon arena
      than any other. Silicon-based RFICs are
      adequate
      for the majority of electronic products in today's
      market. The
      company realizes that there is a
      significant amount of business to be had
      manufacturing
      more "basic" RFICs for products that may not require
      high-end
      RFICs. RF Micro Devices is currently
      investing 50% of its R&D towards
      broadening its silicon
      product line. Low-end RFICs for products such as toys

      is a very important segment for the company going
      forward. As it relates to
      wireless products,
      silicon-based RFICs are adequate at lower frequencies in the

      baseband portion of the handset.

      * Leverage HBT
      process to Increase Market Share. Because RF Micro
      Devices was
      the first company to commercialize the
      HBT GaAs process, it has significant

      technological advantages over many well known circuit providers
      including
      Rockwell and ANADIGICS. Manufacturers of
      high-end electronic products are
      becoming aware of
      these advantages and we think they may turn to RF Micro

      Devices in the future. In our opinion, the company's
      proprietary technology
      will become the choice of high-end
      electronic manufacturers going forward.

      * Lower
      Costs, Improve Operating Margins. RF Micro's business
      had been
      adversely affected due to manufacturing
      constraints. High-volume manufacturing
      has been possible
      since the opening of the new fab last summer.
      Manufacturing
      costs have declined accordingly, while the
      company's gross profit and
      operating margins have
      improved steadily. This trend will likely continue as

      more capacity becomes available in the near-term.
