    Disclosure: I am long CRUS. (More...)

    In my previous article, I had raised concerns that, despite my belief that the fears of Apple (AAPL) socket losses on the part of Cirrus (CRUS) were probably overdone, the loss of both the iPad Air and the iPad Mini audio amplifier sockets was likely to #$%$ investors and sow the seeds of doubt.
