The fingerprint technology being adopted by Apple would be a pretty big story, obviously. So, it not being adopted by Apple is obviously also a pretty big story. And it has nothing to do with logic nor whether the earning would be much affected by the adoption.
You do? You clearly got it wrong. AND you missed the fact that the article says INVN will *BEGIN* its "production *ramp*" in *calendar* 2017. Hence it may not even begin production til 2018. We are talking *production* here, and positive earning impact, not development. FOCUS.
The article says that "the company says that the product won't begin its production ramp until calendar 2017". And yes, i obviously do know the difference between calendar year and fiscal year...do you?
Yes, it is a rehashed article, but it appears to have been *updated* for the more recent CC/etc. Quite the selloff today. Maybe people didn't know that the fingerprint sensor was 2 years out, atleast.
Their products are currently too expensive for that. But assuming the cost of production is low enough, yes, that could be a viable business model.
