IDT 4Q17 results +2

IDT's guidance for fiscal 1Q18 is for $195M in revenue +/- $5M.  This  includes $15M from GigPeak and is slightly below consensus excluding that figure.  The only minor surprise in the call is the mention of new custom memory interface product for a large cloud provider, which should debut towards the end of the year.  The rest of the segment results that I highlight below are mostly expected and well-understood.

Overall, the customer base is diversifying.  There was a fair amount of focus on Apple, wireless power and IDT's decision to ignore that business prospect.  Readers who followed me through InvenSense's history will understand why I think that's a good decision.  When Apple does introduce wireless charging there could be some copycat business, which is not included in guidance.  Again though, all of this is well-understood by IDTI's largely institutional investor base.  To be honest, I haven't seen a truly good opportunity in the stock since late last year.  That's not to say it won't run higher.  I see fair value around $27 as we move toward next year, but that's not enough upside for me to take any action right now.

The conference call is ongoing, but I think that is likely to be the extent of the important information.

Management highlights strong sales in wireless power, memory interface, and automotive sensor products, as anticipated.  We'll see how guidance looks in the conference call, which starts soon.
