  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Monolithic reported impressive first-quarter results. Both earnings and revenues increased on a year-over-year basis. Robust demand in high-end consumer markets, including the likes of power chargers, lighting and home appliances aided growth. The company’s strategic business mix in diversified markets is also a positive. Management revealed that upside in few traditional consumer markets benefited performance. Higher dollar content in new servers based on Purley platform is expected to drive top-line growth. Notably, the stock has outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, intensifying competition and Customer concentration are headwinds. Further, overdependence on Asia for revenues keeps the company risk of currency fluctuations." (5/4/2018)
