LAVA CFO righted the ship, yet there is a deficit in R&D funding and too broad a product portfolio so they will be out distanced by their peers SNPS and CDNS. Look for increasing pressure on top line, which will force even less R&D investment. The current price is at a premium due to constant speculation about being a takeover target.

WHAT?!? How did LAVA get to be 5 stars? Don't negative book, constant losses and declining revenue count for anything these days?

Could go down to the $6 range, but mid-term to longer-term, I think this is a good buy on current valuation.

Constant struggles. Patent Issues. The stock will simply stay flat.

Throughout the period Magma was battling lawsuits they continued to pump money into R&D and grow their top line. Now that the distraction of litigation is out of the way they can really start to grow the bottom line. I don't think that the pop in stock price after they announced the settlement has the years of growth built into it. However, if they don't show a significant increase in profit over the next couple of quarters recent gains may not hold up.
