Cirrus now Apple's poodle

Posted 1st August 2012 at 04:53 AM by abraxalito

Cirrus (familiar to us in the audio world as a major ADC/DAC and codec supplier, formerly Crystal Semiconductor) has engineered itself into a tight corner by having over half its sales come from Apple - but its not permitted to mention its largest customer by name due to Apple's draconian NDA.

I wouldn't say things are looking very bright for Cirrus - to be that dependent on one single customer who is that much more powerful than you and a known corporate bully strikes me as poor strategic thinking.

    I have a bit of CRUS in my portfolio....great returns so far this year...And the whole reason I bought them was because of the Tripath Intellectual Property they scarfed up so cheap. I tell you, this company can do no wrong at the moment....but the PE is getting a bit lofty...
