+ Watch FIO
on My Watchlist
Fusion-io is a computer hardware and software systems company that designs and manufactures memory.
The rumor mill has it that SanDisk has made a buy out offer.
The company have future,and even if there is a chance that they continue to fall from current level (9.6)in the next few quarter.I still believe they will outperform on the longterm. They already have the technology what everybody will need sooner, or later,and of course by the time the competition will come,but i still believe who are in the first line at the start will be in the first line at the end, maybe not t the first place not at the second, but this company will definiatly benefit from the future demand for this technology who ever competitors step in. So the only question is for me how much profit will be on my side after years from today.
it will be bought by seagate
Watch the volatility on this. $15 was a good price to get in. Take 75% out around $25-30

Fusion-io uses solid-state memory to help servers run more efficiently and effectively. There are lots of servers out there that could use a boost, as well as new ones that will come online. Major customers include Facebook and Apple for their internal networks.
is a buyout candidate after texas memory buyout. hot technology. over 33 million servers world wide will need upgrade.
http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2012/08/10/boom-and-this-is-just-the-beginning.aspxThe company plays an increasingly important role in the big-data trend and should be able to climb dramatically from here. In fact, I'm so convinced of a bright future for this stock that I just opened a bullish CAPScall on Fusion-io -- today's price jump notwithstanding. Fools don't play the market-timing game, you know.
FIO still looks expensive - even after falling so far since its IPO. But I think this is as cheap as it's going to be for awhile.
In my opinion there are quite a few things to be excited about with this company and it’s growth potential. First, the customer connections: Largest customer is Facebook, Apple is on their heals with their iCloud and laptops and could end up taking over the top spot soon. New deal with Cisco to be placed in their blade servers, Dell, ect, ect. These are all huge companies, who don’t appear to have a risk of going out of business that would place huge orders with FIO.For those of you who have used a flash hard drive, you know the huge difference in speed and the durability as well. No more bad hard drive because you set your laptop down a little too hard. Personal computers are going toward the direction of flash drives. Despite how anyone might feel, cloud computing is the future for personal and business computing. Presently, these markets are extremely untapped, AKA HUGE growth potential. But what good is growth potential if you can’t capitalize on it? Well….. guess who just happens to have a 57.38 gross margin? To put it a different way, lots of room to invest in R&D, expand capabilities and the ability to fully exploit growth opportunities. Lastly, while being expensive isn’t exactly a good thing, it sure isn’t bad sign with regard to FIO. Yes, they sport a 852 P/E, but that price tag is reflective of expected earnings growth potential. Since their IPO last year their stock price has dropped, however their customer base has grown and will soon be generating much more income. This current low stock price is a great chance to get in at a much more attractive position than you will see later this year.Of course there is a chance you dive into this, I’m totally wrong and it all goes bust. In which case, why did you take the advice of a random stranger on the internet, LOL?
People keep comparing this company to "competitors" that don't make sense. I guess that's understandable since they're the ONLY serious player in performance enterprise storage.
Memory is key.
This company has been on my watch list, I'm excited about their software and the fact that their presence is growing in the cloud space. It's still a good story as earning haven't really shown up. It's on radar, I don't own it yet.
Stephen Wozniak is the chief scientist!! As we consume more and more content on the internet, companies need innovative and cost effective solutions to efficiently access and stream this data to customers. As cloud computing becomes mainstream, FIO's solid state technology will make it succeed.
I'm anxious to see how Apple will utilize Fusion-io hardware/software with the invent of Apple TV. Will they offer streaming services that rival all other service suppliers?
Revenue growth is great. Selling into Apple's data centres may the massive opportunity here. If Apple moves into TV services, FIO's hardware has the potential to be a component of Apple's delivery infrastructure.
