  • SWIR will disrupt.....
    .

    SWIR will provide M2M connectivity for AUDI. If you "google" the following link you will find the article. It is kind of tricky but doable.

    http://stocktwits.com/message/16550589

  • Providing M2M internet connectivity is a complex procedure. Devices must be assembled and organised in an appropriate manner to make them suitable for the objective. In my perspective, SWIR has the most compelling assortment M2M mobile devices to provide the most suitable and appropriate M2M internet connectivity to meet the needs of any client for its need for telematics,industrials, to health care and coffee machines . SWIR is almost assured the procurement of its former 34.5% share of the global M2M market. Based on the preceding observation, there is still significant room for further increase in SWIR's price of its shares. As always, though, , do your own DD.

  • SWIR is a global leader In M2M connectivity and commands 34.5 % of the global market.. There is a reason for this and the reasons are:
    ....It has signed numerous formal teaming clients such as Tech Mahindra that offer SWIR's devices to cloud and Tech Mahindra's system integration and application expertise which are cost effective turnkey solutions tailored for M2M customers in energy, transportation, industrial, and health care.
    .... SWIR offers the most complete set of M2M devices that prospective clients might have to meet their needs.
    ... SWIR has gained the trust of its clients that its devices are the most reliable and most suitable to meet the most sever conditions for which the devices were designed.
    ....By internal growth and by acquisition, SWIR has assembled. the most complete set of M2M devices to meet the needs of any prospective client be it in telematics, industrials, or whatever.
    ...SWIR has the most suitable M2M devices, the most experience and expertise, and the software to provide a client the most complete and cost effective solution for any M2M internet connectivity.
    No doubt, there are other reasons, but as you can see from the above , SWIR is well positioned to compete in the M2M market and is sure to get its share of the M2M market.
    However, please do your own DD!

  • It seems that when SWIR trades AH and goes up, it continues to go up the following day. Today, AH trading, SWIR went up by $0.02. If my observation is logical then expect SWIR to continue its upward trend tomorrow.

  • These scenarios are made possible by machine-to-machine ("M2M") communication. When the robot broke

    "down, a wireless signal was sent to the technicians cell phone and the factory's parts warehouse, coordinating the repair without human intervention. A recent report called the M2M Bible projected that demand for these applications would drive the industry to reach $136 billion by the end of 2018 - a 23% compound annual growth rate.

    Sierra Wireless Inc. (NASDAQ: SWIR) provides wireless modems, mobile hotspots, wireless embedded modules, OEM software, intelligent wireless gateways and other products that form the backbone of the rapidly growing M2M industry. In 2012, the company generated nearly $400 million in revenue and reported its first full year of profitability since 2008. But 2013 could be the company's most transformative year yet.

    Early last year, the company sold its AirCard assets to NetGear Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR) in order to refocus on the M2M market and used the proceeds to acquire AnyDATA's M2M assets in October and In Motion Technology. Management grew organic revenues by 11% to a record $442 million and significantly improved profitability with EBITDA that increased 48% to $18.7 million. In Q1 2014, the company expects to generate $117 to $121 million in revenue.

    Investors looking to buy into Sierra Wireless may want to look beyond the lofty P/E multiple to the P/B, P/S, and P/CF multiples that are well below the industry average. In addition to the strong growth, investors may have the opportunity to acquire the stock at a reasonable price at the moment.

    Take Away Points to Remember

    Wireless technologies are quickly revolutionizing a number of different sectors, including healthcare and the industrial sector. Investors that want to capitalize on these two sectors have many opportunities, ranging from AmbiCom Holdings and Johnson & Johnson in healthcare to companies like Sierra Wireless in the industrial M2M space."

  • Just a few weeks ago, the company completed its purchased a company called In Motion for $21 million. The company made rugged in-vehicle mobile routers and a secure platform to manage connected devices. Because of the acquisition, Sierra said it now has "the products, channels, and technology needed to offer the most comprehensive suite of solutions to our customers and expand our market share in high growth, high value markets such as public safety and commercial fleets." In 2013, In Motion generated $15 million in revenue, and its gross margin was 50% of revenue.

    In addition to its M2M leadership position, the company just launched a new open source platform named Legato. The new platform allows companies to develop applications for machine-to-machine devices and manage them from Sierra Wireless' cloud.

    Both Legato and the In Motion acquisition are aimed at adding to the company's machine-to-machine offerings, while shoring up its leadership position in the segment. And with the company selling its AirCard business, it's better positioned to focus on Internet of Things.

    A few things to consider
    As the Internet of Things grows, costs for connected devices will fall and hurt Sierra's margins. In fiscal 2013, gross margin was at 30.1%. Investors should continue to keep tabs on how Sierra is staying ahead of other M2M businesses, and how that impacts the cost of wireless modules. Another thing to consider is that Sierra isn't profitable right now, although that should change in fiscal 2014. If Sierra can't expand into new areas and generate more revenue, the company's prospects could turn.

    Sierra Wireless (SWIR) (SW.TO) today introduced the Legato™ platform, an open source embedded platform built on Linux and designed to simplify the development of machine-to-machine (M2M) applications from the device to the cloud.

    “We expect millions of devices to be connected over the next few years, but there are significant challenges to overcome to enable the Internet of Things,” said Philippe Guillemette, Chief Technology Officer for Sierra Wireless. “One of these challenges is the time and investment required to get a new M2M application from design to deployment and beyond. In building Legato, our aim is to provide a complete device-to-cloud solution for developers, along with tools, support, and a development community to help streamline these efforts and give embedded M2M projects a head start.”

    The Legato embedded platform tightly integrates Wind River Linux, a commercial-grade Linux distribution with a rich set of capabilities based on the latest open source technologies, with an M2M application framework and feature-rich tools

    It's not easy finding stocks that are on the cutting edge of their industry, publicly traded, and poised for more growth. Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR ) is a quiet tech company that's leading the machine-to-machine communication market, also called the Internet of Things, and it's upside can't be overlooked.

    Although Sierra has been on Wall Street since 2000, its business has shifted since then, with some of its technology now powering innovations in Tesla's (NASDAQ: TSLA ) Model S. And as the company's focus has shifted over the years, so has its potential.

    So, Sierra does what exactly?
    Let's keep this simple. If the Internet of Things, or IoT, is the connection of everyday objects to the Internet, then Sierra Wireless is the company that makes that connection possible. IoT will allow cars to communicate with each other, vending machines to tell companies when they need to be refilled, and energy systems to manage power usage on their own. Sierra's wireless modules and cloud management services both allow formerly non-connected devices to connect to the Internet and be easily controlled.

    Tesla's Model S is a perfect example of a connected car, in which Sierra provides the 3G-connection module that allows the car's infotainment system to tap into AT&T's wireless network. Tesla can then access data about the car's systems and make upgrades and adjustments based on feedback from the vehicle. Tesla is clearly a leader in automobile connectivity, but it's not the only company moving in this direction. Other car companies such as Ford, Toyota, BMW and others use Sierra's technology as well.

    But cars aren't the only thing Sierra puts its modules into. Nespresso's coffee makers also have Sierra's connected devices, as do energy systems, wireless payment devices, and much more.

    The company's goal is to take away all the technical aspects of the connecting devices to the Internet of Things, so that companies can focus on making their products. And Sierra Wireless is in a great position to do it.

    The advantages
    Right now, Sierra Wireless holds about 34% of the embedded cellular M2M module business worldwide.

    Although it has worldwide IoT reach, the company is still nimble with a market cap under $700 million, $180 million in cash, and virtually no debt. In its fiscal fourth quarter 2013, ending in February, Sierra posted revenue of $118.6 million, up 8.4% year over year. Revenue for the full fiscal 2013 year hit a record high of $441.9 million, up 11.2%.

    The upside for Sierra is that it recently sold its AirCard business, which was dragging down its focus on the Internet of Things. Sierra's CEO, Jason Cohenour, said in an earnings statement that:

    We achieved record revenue in the fourth quarter, closing out a year in which we delivered solid operational results, sold our AirCard business, and began putting the proceeds to work on acquisitions that extend our leadership position in M2M.

    "Sierra Wireless Inc. (SWIR) stands to benefit from Legato open-source platform increasing machine-to-machine (M2M) adoption. Eventually all Sierra Wireless smart products (i.e., those with app processors) will move from its proprietary Open AT to Legato. The company is the global leader in M2M devices and cloud services, delivering intelligent wireless solutions that simplify the connected world. It offers the industry's most comprehensive portfolio of 2G, 3G and 4G embedded modules and gateways, seamlessly integrated with its secure M2M cloud services. The consensus price target is $21.31. Sierra Wireless closed Thursday at $20.98."

  • The same hardware platform used for enabling automatic emergency calls following accidents can also be used for additional services such as stolen vehicle tracking. Another key application area for wireless M2M in the security industry is monitored small alarm systems. Berg Insight forecasts that 5.7 million alarm systems out of a total installed base of 9.5 million systems will be connected to cellular networks in Europe by 2018. “There is considerable growth potential”, says André Malm, Senior Analyst at Berg Insight. He adds that even in markets with high penetration, such as Sweden and Norway, there are no signs of slowdown due to market saturation. The penetration was only about 3.3 percent of all businesses and households in Europe at the end of 2013. In the residential segment, the small alarm system market is partly driven by economic development, the level of homeownership, as well as new home construction activities. Another important driver is also active marketing and sales led by specialist alarm service companies. New entrants to the market in the form of various providers of home automation systems are also creating consumer awareness of security systems. “However, many of the alarm system solutions marketed by home automation providers mainly rely on self-monitoring and do not include professional monitoring services”, concluded Mr Malm.

  • An excerpt from David Gardner's (MF) growth stock article ny financial advisor will probably tell you that
    there is no such thing as “the last stock you will ever need,” and that this kind of thinking is dangerous to your financial health … but still, as every financial copywriter knows, hope springs eternal. We all want those 8,000% gains to make us more comfortable in our golden years (or to make it so we can afford to buy $70 egg trays without blinking an eye). Deciphering Motley Fool’s “R.I.P., INTERNET: 1 Explosive InterWorld Stock for 89x your Money by 2020″

    So after all that, what is our “secret” stock? Secret no more, this is: Sierra Wireless (SWIR)

    Sierra Wireless is a small Canadian tech company (yes it’s in a “small town North of Seattle” — Richmond, British Columbia), and they have indeed been on a tear this year, getting up to $20 a share for the first time since the financial crisis (they’ve dipped down a bit recently, shares now just under $18 as I type). They have a market cap of about $500 million, so quite tiny, and they’re expensive based on either trailing or forecasted earnings but do also have a large cash pile of about $6 a share (and no debt).

    If you account for the cash, you can say that the shares trade at a forward PE of only about 24 (50 cents in earnings in 2014 expected), which sounds a bit more reasonable than the numbers look at first blush, but it’s still expensive — particularly because analysts are baking in pretty low growth expectations for the future. So it looks like David Gardner is making a big picture argument that SWIR is going to see much higher demand for its products in the coming years, with good revenue and earnings growth, and the Wall Street (OK, Bay Street) analysts are forecasting something a lot more tepid.

    Sierra Wireless is going “all in” with this “Internet of Things” with the sale this year of their AirCard business (that’s their mobile broadband product) to NetGear, and that sale resulted in what looks like a huge earnings number this year (that’s why the trailing PE looks amazingly low — most

    SWIR/ Connected Car continuation: Sierra Wireless (TSX: SW)(Nasdaq: SWIR), is now focused solely on the M2M business, so it stands to benefit greatly from this growth. Last year, the company acquired the assets of AnyDATA’s M2M embedded module and modem business for $5.9 billion. The deal adds to Sierra’s market leading position in this market. Sierra’s customers in the automotive industry include Chrysler, Peugeot, and Renault. While Sierra reported a net loss in the last 12 months, its balance sheet is strong, with little debt, and the company generates positive cash flow.
