what a great stock this has been but i have just decided that i will cash in becausee i see that they only have 220 employees. either this is the most efficient companies in america or something is off. other compnies in their industry with similar mkt caps have over 1000 or more. in the past this has worked well as a red flag indicator. what a great run though for a truly great stock.
Suppose there are 20 bigshots who manage the company, 10 in HR, 20 in marketing, heck I really don't know. That means there are 170 RF designers. How many RF designers are there in the world? 1000? 2000? 10000? If there are only 1000 RF designers and 170 of them are at Hittite, that's pretty freakin' good. But again, I really don't know. Just guessing. Good luck to all.
