is to read company press releases of the last couple months. Review Q3 cc transcript, including Q&A. Look at a tear down of a IPhone 4S. Take the p/n's to the TQNT website and find out what they are. Use the internet to research those components to understand their worth. You don't need to be a RF engineer to understand. AAPL is a 35% customer-it's important what they are buying. You could do this in one to two hours easy. The toughest thing is to understand those IP 4S components, but it's important. That was worth a $2/sh price swing a month ago. Investing in stocks is surely a guessing game, the best you can do is try to make an EDUCATED guess.
For extra credit; learn about TQNT's competition, because as much as TQNT is screwing up the competition is playing a top notch game.
I agree and you have to use your brain power for analyzing what is happening now and future. iPhone 4S is having a good time and TQNT is benefitting. When iPhone is selling more, that means less NOK and Samsung phones(poor RFMD).
After all, TQNT is at its multi year low with no big expectation while RFMD and SWKS stock prices are high and they may not meet their investors expectations.
Some shorts are hurting badly today. Some gamblers probably shorted a stock like TQNT with a real book value of $5.60 per share and now try to convince others with their negativity. I think, you cannot find a value stock like TQNT anywhere. TQNT will reward its investors with a huge gain and profit eventually.
RFMD is a gamble and it will drop to $5 or lower by next few quarters.
And my advice to all is for every 2k shares of TQNT that you buy or have, short 1k of RFMD. This will be the best play since TQNT is at its bottom while RFMD is at its top and it can't go anywhere but down.
