According to Zacks Investment Research, "Monolithic designs, develops and markets high-performance power solutions. The company generates majority of revenues from a limited number of customers. Customer concentration lowers the company’s ability to hike price, which is a major concern. Further, intensifying competition from peers is expected to keep profitability under pressure in the near-term. Moreover, lack of geographic diversity in terms of end-customers is a significant headwind. However, robust demand in high-end consumer markets, including the likes of IoT based products, lighting and home appliances, is growth drivers. Higher dollar content in new servers based on Purley platform is expected to drive top-line growth. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry in the past one year." (10/8/2018) 2.
