The Sheriff of AIM is surely entitled to a celebratory breakfast ouzo at his hovel in North Wales? On Wednesday I flagged up a profits warning from the Krauts at Siltronic and suggested that IQE (IQE) was likely to follow. Less than 48 hours later the Cardiff dog duly barks. As a long term bear I have repeatedly warned silly sell side analysts, Thirsty Paul Scott and others that this company is a crock…once again I stand vindicated. And so to detail….it is grim.

Bombshell: IQE Photonics - Fading fast?

Last week I wrote about how IQE’s (IQE) latest annual filing revealed that were it not for one major customer, IQE’s business would have gone pretty much nowhere. Therefore all the excitement and value increase appears heavily reliant on that one major new customer. Today we highlight how at its recent AGM, on 4 June, IQE provided guidance of a 40:60 revenue split for H1:H2 2018, indicating either a slowdown or (as some may hope) merely a deferring of growth.

IQE and the £630m customer? Crackers valuation metrics - sheer insanity

Two years ago today, IQE (IQE) was trading at 17p per share, valuing the company at c. £120 million. Today the shares are nearly 6x higher at 100p per share, valuing the business at £750 million; an astonishing £630 million increase in value.
