Well seeking alpha is not what I would consider a news article site..I could write a blasting bearish article and post it there.

The contents in THAT article is pretty accurate, STMicroelectronics (Euro-based) is the leader in terms of MEMs production and they have the lucrative Apple contract.  The problem with STM is their technology is one generation behind INVN.  Their 3 axis accelerometer cannot compete with INVN's 6 axis accelerometer/gyroscope or it's 9 axis accelerometer/gyroscope/compass chip in terms of performance, size and power usage.  And the article did point out that the CEO said he expects INVN to serve all major smartphone manufacturers ... the CEO did actually say this at the January CES convention in Las Vegas ... but specifically stated 2013.  And this was mentioned by the CFO in the previous quarter conference call.  Top two execs pointing to a possible Apple contract win down the road along with their third party manufacturers ramping up times two capacity (600 mil units) for 2013 is a strong enough indicator for me to say something big is brewing.  While seeking alpha may contain suspect articles, I find this one regarding INVN informative for new INVN holders.  Good luck ladies and gents!

And to answer the seeking alpha's question regarding if the forward estimates include apple products/design wins ... it does NOT.  The forward guidance for INVN only includes current design wins, current customers mostly from the Android ecosystem and Nintendo gaming.  They do have a *other revs segment which include cameras, wearable sensors, odds and ends type stuff.  So if INVN ever won the game changing Apple contract, the forward guidance goes up ... duh!!!

... Good Stuff 'caveman.  Looks like you've done your homework on these guys. 

For me , I stay away from tech companies... The technology moves too quickly for me and today's winners are often tomorrow's losers . 
The trash bin is deep in the tech industry more than any other sector of the economy...

You gotta be quick to recognize when a company has lots its edge in the tech industry.  Just a word to the wise.

Great info here, used it for a binary options Apple Put for 3 hrs and walked away with $$$$$. Sometimes the 78% gain on Call/Put is worth more than nerve wrecking long follow up. Your info was gold Cave and Wallstreet. Thanks

Can someone explain to me how a straddle works? And when it's a good idea to try one?

Michael, I don't do those.  You're talking about playing both a put and call option on a very volatile stock yeah?  Maybe consider that strategy preearnings on some crazy small cap stock ... but to be honest with you, I've never tried it so I'm the wrong guy to ask.  Sorry man.

In finance, a straddle is an investment strategy involving the purchase or sale of particular option derivatives that allows the holder to profit based on how much the price of the underlying security moves, regardless of the direction of price movement. The purchase of particular option derivatives is known as a long straddle, while the sale of the option derivatives is known as a short straddle.

A long straddle involves going long, i.e., purchasing, both a call option and a put option on some stock, interest rate, index or other underlying. The two options are bought at the same strike price and expire at the same time. The owner of a long straddle makes a profit if the underlying price moves a long way from the strike price, either above or below. Thus, an investor may take a long straddle position if he thinks the market is highly volatile, but does not know in which direction it is going to move. This position is a limited risk, since the most a purchaser may lose is the cost of both options. At the same time, there is unlimited profit potential.
For example, company XYZ is set to release its quarterly financial results in two weeks. A trader believes that the release of these results will cause a large movement in the price of XYZ's stock, but does not know whether the price will go up or down. He can enter into a long straddle, where he gets a profit no matter which way the price of XYZ stock moves, if the price changes enough either way. If the price goes up enough, he uses the call option and ignores the put option. If the price goes down, he uses the put option and ignores the call option. If the price does not change enough, he loses money, up to the total amount paid for the two options. The risk is limited by the total premium paid for the options, as opposed to the short straddle where the risk is virtually unlimited.


A short straddle is a non-directional options trading strategy that involves simultaneously selling a put and a call of the same underlying security, strike price and expiration date. The profit is limited to the premiums of the put and call, but it is risky because if the underlying security's price goes very high up or very low down, the potential losses are virtually unlimited, yet it depends on the type of purchase vehicle used (differ in risk %). The deal breaks even if the intrinsic value of the put or the call equals the sum of the premiums of the put and call. This strategy is called "nondirectional" because the short straddle profits when the underlying security changes little in price before the expiration of the straddle. The short straddle can also be classified as a credit spread because the sale of the short straddle results in a credit of the premiums of the put and call.
A short straddle position is highly risky, because the potential loss is unlimited due to the sale of the call and the put options which expose the investor to unlimited losses (on the call) or losses equal to the strike price (on the put), whereas profitability is limited to the premium gained by the initial sale of the options. The Collar is a more conservative "opposite" that limits gains and losses.

Added a fourth position on the pullback @ $14.24.  Nintendo revised Wii U sales forecast ... LOWER ... AGAIN.  This worries me as Nintendo is still a 20% revs customer.  Hoping INVN can still hit calendar Q1 2013 numbers.

Cave - I'm not really into the stock market.  But any idea how high this invn can go.  I don't see the smart phone going any where.  The iphone doesnt seem like a hot phone as samsung is 1/2 price cheaper.

PASA818, your question regarding how high INVN can go is anybody's guess.  There are price targets from sell side analysts from $15 to $27.  From my experience, trying to predict how high a stock can go or listening to what Wall Street analysts say is just a waste of time.  Nobody really knows.  Back in my 20's, I use to work for a guy that traded stocks for over half a century.  And he said he's only sold a stock at it's absolute top twice.  Keep in mind, this guy trades for a living and he had 50 plus years experience trading.  So trying to *time* a stock at its absolute high or low is just foolish.  Many things can affect INVN's current run ... from manufacturing capacity to product demand to the overall general markets .... and anything and everything in between.  So until I see weakness in the stock (high volume selling), I'm gunna ride this motherf*cker until it dies ... good luck to you.

INVN update - Stock looks good.  Be patient!!!  It looks like this new Sony Xperia Z is gunna give the Samsung Galaxy S3 (INVN biggest revenue generator) and the Iphones some serious competition.  I reviewed the FCC teardown of the phone and did some research.  It looks like the internal components are freaking stout!!!  This phone will be the phone to beat until the new Samsung Galaxy S4 and Iphone 6 debuts.  I have some good news and bads news ... it looks like this Sony Xperia Z uses the INVN gyroscope model 3050.  Which is good news.  And the bad news is this 3050 gyroscope is not the big money maker as its slightly old ... if they would have incorporated the INVN 6050 6 axis accel/gyro  ... i'd be really happy as it's INVN big ticket item.  Either way .... we're ok ... still looking forward to that big Apple contract.  Good luck longs.

While there's no new info regarding INVN, from a technical analysis standpoint, there's a chance we could see this stock run a little starting tomorrow.  Looks like there's some near term resistance around $15.  With INVN closing at $14.97 on times 2 volume (todays volume 2.9 mil vs average vol of 1.3 mil ish), I'd say there's a reasonable chance here to get some momentum going again.  Time will tell ...
