Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
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.
