Finisar Corp has been cranking out the income recently. They have managed to beat street estimates for the last 4 quarters. 2013 appears to be a little low, but 2014 outlook is looking good.Insider ownership is only 1%, which doesn't instill a lot of confidence, but the revenue and income numbers are good in the last quarters. Balance sheet show increase in assets for the last few years and they have tried to keep their liabilities in check. This will in the long run, keep adding to the total equity over time.They have a low Debt/Equity Ratio so they are able to keep more of their earnings. They do not pay any dividends so this make this a growth company.They have had a recent run up, deserving slow, so at this price, it appears that I am chasing a star. But, I believe that they will continue to prevail for years ahead and continue to outperform the market in the near and distant future. So, I'm good investing at the 27.70/sh level but would love to catch more of this stock at a lower price. I would hang on to double my investment at 52/sh and reevaluate if the price fell to the 20.00/sh
to much money coming in from ATT and V to upgrade all their networks to fiber optics and 4G or faster. this company is poised to cash in on those contracts over the next 2 years.
will break soon
I'm long FNSRthey've fallen close to 50% and revenues are growing 25% instead of the estimated 25.5%seems like a buy to me.
booming stock as if cloud computing + bandwith will accelerate from 2012
bandwidth build out
40%drop overdone for a 20% growth rate. fastest growing sector
Will outperform because demand for optics is NOW.

This should bounce back, but there are no guarantees.
With all the iPad, iPhone and smart phone generater traffic coupled with the big upgrades in corporate datacenters, traffic hitting the network infrastructure is skyrocketing. But networks havenot been upgraded for a long time - now traffic is rising and warrants increased spending on datacenter, metro and long haul networks. JDSU was just the first and it poped all the other related stocks EMKR, OCLR, ALU, Ciena - even "flat for ever" OPXT nearly doubled! Finisar is the #1 supplier in datacom and telecom optical interconnects. This whle sector is poised for a pop IMHO. FNSR will lead the charge! no 43 was 3
Is there upside to this stock ?.
Everyone loves the optical component growth story on the back of 40G and 100G network rollouts. However, what isn't baked in is the change in ROADM (Reconfigurable Optical Add Drop Multiplexers, hence the acronym) makeup and how it impacts the components makers. The market for these intelligent modules is expected to grow 20% annually through 2015. However, the components in these modules has changed as manufacturers have increased the number of wavelength selective switches (WSS) in each multiplexer from 2-4 to 8-16. This means the market for the alphabet-souped ROADM WSSs could double annually for the next four years. In 2010, FNSR took the market share lead from JDSU. They currently sport 30% market share and are expanding capacity rapidly. While the stock isn't cheap at 15 times next year's earnings, FNSR is positioned to be the winner in this current product cycle. Now if only management would stop diluting shareholders with all these secondaries...
This component maker is an important cog in the optical networking industry's complicated machinery. There's a ton of growing left to do here, and Finisar's stock isn't even expensive.
Good Optical Play
High growth. Moderate risk. Cheap, cheaper than it will stay even if growth is slower than projected.
