    Management and the employees are buying very bullish !!!!! Other investors are glad to sell shares to them means management has no idea how to convince investors to hold and buy more shares. usually insider buying is a very important indicator to the investing public. They may be good engineers but for sure they fail in increasing shareholder value. Who is responsible for this and why are they doing such a bad job when it seems to me they have a story to sell.

    Qorvo is scheduled post quarterly earnings on Wednesday, July 29, after market close. Burton is forecasting earnings per share of $1.08 on revenue of $666 million. Both figures are in-line with estimates from the Street. In the quarter prior, Quorvo posted revenue of $634.9 million.

    Burton believes earnings will be driven by several factors, including: “1) Apple strength holding up longer than expected; 2) relative strength from Huawei, an early adopter of RF Flex and RF Fusion; and 3) MediaTek’s ramping single-chip LTE platforms, where Qorvo gained share vs. the last gen.”

    Looking forward, Burton expects Qorvo to offer September guidance that is up 16% sequentially, which is well above the Street’s consensus. The analyst is looking for “content gains at Apple [and] strength from Huawei,” a Chinese telecommunications firm that works with Qorvo. Furthermore, Burton is expecting future guidance to be driven by “a doubling of [Qorvo’s] exposure to MediaTek’s ramping 4G platform, and increasing content at Samsung to all drive the guide above consensus.” Overall, the analyst believes that the company is “very well-positioned in the China market.”

    Mike Burton currently has a Buy rating on Qorvo with a $95 price target

    BUNGE is the biggest name in institutional food oil/ this confirms production capacity, confirms huge testing,and most important food sales department with worldwide clout .. Bunge does not do a roll out without the right testing and training. Not only that ,I would think they have some big users already presold and using the product. Need plenty of patience but for sure this is a positive leading indicator.

    They only make an educated guess , based on their contacts in the industry and their engineering experience. Analyst job is to follow dots and have the guts to predict the future. They do not make the big bucks to bet after the race is over.

    With demand outstripping supplies, the market for lemons from
    California right now is strong. Fruit sizes coming out of the state
    are skewing smaller, and the market looks to remain the way it is
    until at least this summer.

    “The market is very strong right now,” said Jeff Olsen of The Chuck
    Olsen Company. “Prices will go up, and it will be a tough road until
    we get fruit from District Three.” Olsen explained that there's a good
    amount of fruit on trees in District Two, where current production is
    centered, and, with water shortages, the trees have fewer resources to
    spread out over more fruit.

    “There's not enough water to help the fruit grow,” said Olsen.
    “There's a fair amount of size 200 lemons, but supplies for size 140
    fruit and larger are very tight and will continue to be tight through
    the summer until we start Mexico or District Three in August.” On May
    11, prices for a carton of 75s were between $29.80 and $35.90 out of
    California's Southern District. Prices for a carton of 140s were
    between $36.80 and $41.90, and for a carton of 200s, prices were
    between $21.80 and $25.90.

    Palm Oil: What you need to know
    palm oil fruit


    The oil palm (Elaeis guineensis) is an ancient tropical plant from the West African tropical rainforest region. It is still being cultivated there as well as across the tropics. Indonesia and Malaysia account for about 89 percent of global production (2014. Stanford Social Innovation Report), with the world’s largest palm oil users being China, India, and Europe. Other key palm oil producing countries include Nigeria, Thailand, Colombia, Ecuador and other African economies.

    Today, it’s the most produced and traded vegetable oil in the world. Products from the palm such as crude palm oil, palm kernel oil, palm kernel meal and all their derivatives are inexpensive and extremely versatile. Aside from widespread use as a healthier choice of cooking oil it’s found in more than 50 percent of consumer products today used for – food, cosmetics, animal feed, soaps/lotions, pharmaceuticals, biofuel and chemical industries. About 80 percent of world production is consumed in the form of food, however the demand for non-food use is growing rapidly and feeding the need for expansion.

    The boom in palm oil growth has been absolutely breathtaking. Below, are 3 statistics that demonstrate the growth trend.

    Global land area used for palm oil production jumped from 15 million acres (1990) to a staggering 40+ million acres (2011) (Fact Sheet. The Union of Concerned Scientists)
    In just 4 years, global production has grown from 48.84 million metric tons (2010) to 62.79 million metric tons (2014) (2015 USDA World Markets and Trade Report).
    Riau Province, in Indonesia has been a focal point for expansion. Land use for palm oil production has skyrocketed from only 7,000 hectares in 1982 to 1,567,054 in 2007, occupying the large share in Indonesia (2013. The Palm Oil Controversy in Southeast Asia: A Transnational Perspective)
