bocase: Nothing new.. but mention by Investomania today. hTtps://investomania.co.uk/2018/08/4-hot-growth-shares-rolls-royce-ocado-iqe-and-asos/ "IQE’s performance from a business perspective continue to improve in my opinion. Its financial position seems to have been boosted by its fundraising from last year, and this has provided it with the capacity to move ahead with mass-market growth opportunities. With the IQE share price having a PEG ratio of around 0.6, it seems to offer a margin of safety. Therefore, while investor sentiment towards the Footsie may be relatively uncertain at the moment, I think that there are growth opportunities on offer which could perform well in the long run."

regasclockwork: bocase's post on 28-July, from the Motley Fool by Royston Wild, "Is the IQE share price the bargain of the century?" came across as being very positive for IQE. However, today we have another article from 'The Fool', but by another 'author' - Roland Head. He is not so upbeat. Royston and Roland possibly share the same desk, but don't share the same opinions. Here we go: The IQE share price is falling. Should you be buying? Roland Head | Monday, 30th July, 2018 | More on: IQE KLR The share price of electronics firm IQE (LSE: IQE) has fallen by 45% from its 52-week high of 181p. Today I’m asking why the shares are falling, and if this is a buying opportunity for smart investors. A tech growth story Semiconductor wafer specialist IQE plans to double the number of reactors qualified for photonics in its Newport factory from five to 10 this year. The company plans to have built 20 “fully serviced reactor bays” by the middle of 2019, with more planned beyond that. Photonics (devices that emit or detect light, such as lasers) are the most rapidly growing part of the firm’s business. In its latest trading update, the company says that sales of these products rose by 30% during the first half, excluding exchange rate effects. Alongside this, the company’s more mature Wireless business continues to sell large volumes of compound semiconductor products, which are required for high-speed wireless services. IQE said last week that it expects to report half-year sales of £73m, up from £70m for the same period last year. However, this figure was affected by a 9.5% currency headwind. I estimate that sales at constant exchange rates would have risen by about 14% to £80m. On track for growth targets? Sales are expected to be 50% higher during the second half of the year than during H1. This puts the group on track to hit full-year forecasts of about £180m. The Cardiff-based firm says that the heavy second-half weighting is due to the time needed to replenish inventories of certain components after rapid photonics growth last year. I can see no reason to doubt this guidance, but in my view there’s always some risk of disappointment when sales growth is ‘lumpy’ in this way. Despite this year’s share price drop, IQE stock still trades on a 2018 forecast price/earnings ratio of 28. This drops to a forecast P/E of 19 for 2019. This looks high enough to me, so I wouldn’t buy the stock at this level. -End- 'A Tale of Two Titties'? I'll row in with Royston rather than Roland. Let's hope that this winning streak of 2 up days extends itself on Tuesday. GLA! EDIT: Royston says: "I reckon now could be a great time to buy into the stock as I feel investor appetite may be about to turn..." And Roland says: "This looks high enough to me, so I wouldn’t buy the stock at this level."

regasclockwork: ojh2kent29 Jul '18 - 14:51 - 19403 of 19403 0 1 0 "Motley fool have been saying things like that for the last year" -End- Yes oj, that headline, "Is the IQE share price the bargain of the century?" has been used by Motley Fool time and time again, but at least the content is fairly up to date. The last paragraph makes it sound exciting [my high case]: "Indeed, after IQE's predicted earnings rise of 6% in 2018, the business is expected to GET BACK to reporting RIPPING PROFITS GROWTH with a 36% advance next year. I believe the TECH MARVEL provides plenty of upside risk at current prices and it could prove to be a millionaire-maker in the years to come." -End- Still, if it helps boost the share price on Monday, I won't be complaining. GLA. EDIT: Also, the "...it could prove to be a millionaire-maker in the years to come." is also an old 'standard' of their's for IQE. Let's hope that it's not in too many 'years to come' as some of us may not be around to witness it.

bocase: Very positive article from Motley Fool. May help a little on Monday and sentiment is so important to help a break out to the upside. Is the IQE share price the bargain of the century? THE MOTLEY FOOL Jul 27th 2018 12:30PM Gold medal Excluding a short sharp price spike at the start of the year, the downward shock which struck IQE(LSE: IQE) at the back end of 2017 is showing no signs of letting go just yet. Market sentiment for the business first soured as short sellers piled in as a response to the AIM company's stratospheric price rise of recent years (up 672% in the three years to the close of last December). While this is not uncommon for shares whose market values have exploded, reports from sellers like Muddy Waters, which questioned IQE's accounting procedures, have kept the pressure on. As if this wasn't enough, appetite for the stock has been whacked by fears of steeply-declining sales to Apple. Such is the Cupertino company's dominance that even the faint whiff of falling demand from the world's most-loved tech manufacturer can break a supplier as quickly and easily as it can make one. IQE has fallen more than 25% in 2018 alone, closed below the 100p marker in June and is teetering around this level right now. However, I reckon now could be a great time to buy into the stock as I feel investor appetite may be about to turn... STRONG NUMBERS IQE released a positive set of trading numbers earlier this week when it announced that sales rose to £73m during January-July. It may be only a slight improvement from the revenues of £70m experienced a year earlier, however it wasn't all that bad when achieved against a currency headwind of 9.5%. What's more, and as Barclays Capital was quick to point out, the release showed "the second half ramp for 3D sensing components is strong after the weaker start to the year." Demand looks set to intensify again after the impact of the destocking of Apple's iPhone X parts during the early stages of 2018, with three new iPhones with 3D sensing capabilities set to ramp up during the remainder of the year. Like I said earlier, Apple's clout has a significant bearing upon the fortunes of those up and down the supply chain. Having said that, the latest release underlined the growing clout that IQE has with other tech mammoths across the globe. Sure, sales may have disappointed in the first half, but "a very significant increase in the number and extent of our engagements with VCSEL chip customers" in the period has taken the edge off, so to speak. The company is now engaged with 20 VCSEL chip manufacturers spanning Asia, North America and Europe, and capacity expansion at its Newport site in South Wales will give it the manufacturing clout to meet future demand. Right now IQE deals on a forward P/E ratio of 26.3 times, sailing above the widely-regarded value territory of 15 times or below. That said, I don't think the tech titan's valuation is that demanding given that the long-term earnings outlook remains extremely encouraging. Indeed, after IQE's predicted earnings rise of 6% in 2018, the business is expected to get back to reporting ripping profits growth with a 36% advance next year. I believe the tech marvel provides plenty of upside risk at current prices and it could prove to be a millionaire-maker in the years to come.

picobird: Motley Fool....why the IQE share price could double in the next five years htTps://www.fool.co.uk/investing/2018/06/11/why-the-iqe-share-price-could-double-in-the-next-5-years/ (I was thinking more like five months max)

thecrunk: I think its safe to say there was no reaction to IQE share price now by all that exceptional news. Why? The shorters are and have been in control of this share for six months. Its six love to the shorters. Can investors do anything about it? NO Can the board do anything about it? NO - they must look after the company first. Investors will see the fruits of their work March 2019. So until then investors must just wait and let the shorters have the day (I mean year) Or - alternative hypothesis - the board could actually bloody well do something RE promoting the IQE in any way possible.

"Except IQE share price goes down." -End- Relax crunk,it's just 'pausing for breath' after the rise of 5.8p yesterday and possibly down due to a bit of profit taking. The drop was almost bound to happen as I bought a few just before yesterday's close for 108.95p. Tuck them away and think long-term.

amt: Actually iPhone sales came in slightly short of expectations but Apple is making more money in other areas these days. So nothing to get too excited about as far as IQE investment concerned. Apple is far more than mobile phones these days so we cannot just take a superficial look at Apples results and conclude that good Apple earnings equals good news for IQE. I do expect IQE share price to rise today but not sure given the beating it is taking it will be sustained.

cielos: IQE future is rosy / Apple ditches intel Not the first time apple have brought everything in house. They nearly went bankrupt with this approach before bringing Steve Jobs back and started using off the shelf parts. Other companies have done the same thing IBM made bespoke CPU's, DASD and other parts. Now because of the continued cost of development they buy parts off the shelf. Sony designed a bespoke CPU for the PlayStation then on the next version went back to buying off the shelf CPU from Intel. Also believe that IQE products will still be required by apple to create the new bespoke CPU's. IQE share price inflated because it has links to Apple but the company is not dependant on them.
