  3. 3.  The reasons for the profit miss wasn’t because the company lost pricing power or because input costs rose.  As CEO Behrooz Abdi said on the company’s conference call, the profit miss came from an increase in research and development to, “enable us to make sizable market share gains in our core mobile market and to open up exciting business opportunities in emerging applications, such as wearables.”  Abdi also said the company built up inventory to, “prepare for multiple significant customer ramps.”
  4. 4. Strong Second-Half  For the past two quarters, Abdi has said that the second-half of 2014 would be a strong one.

Companies that develop relationships with manufacturers now stand to reap huge benefits in the future.  Pay attention to the companies and devices using InvenSense’s technology for wearable computing and technology.
