API - Worth Buying

We blogged about Neophotonics (NPTN) and today it's Advanced Photonix Inc (API), which is a leading supplier of opto-electronic solutions and Terahertz sensors and instrumentation to a global OEM customer base. Our solutions are based on our patented high speed optical receivers in III-V materials in APD and PIN configurations and silicon Large Area Avalanche Photodiode (LAAPD), PIN photodiode and FILTRODE® detectors. Read more about API here.

API just released their earnings, which look really good and the CEO is very positive on the future of this company. Here is what he said "Building upon the momentum of the revenue growth driven by our telecommunications market, we are continuing to experience accelerating growth for our fiscal year. Year-to-date results exceeded the raised guidance we gave last quarter of a minimum of 25% year over year growth. Based on the performance of the first three quarters, and the outlook for the fourth quarter, we are again raising our guidance to 35% revenue growth for the year,” said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Richard (Rick) Kurtz. “Based on the increasing demand globally for our high-speed optical receivers and increasing revenue in our terahertz product platform we anticipate a strong fourth quarter.

Bottom line - Just like NPTN, API has got great demand for its products through out the world and I strongly believe that this stock has all potential to move up at least 70% in the next 6 months. Here are its recent earnings, click here.

Disclosure - Long API.

  1. hi, any news of IFON? seems want to break again 1.10! yesterday and today is good.

  2. I do not have any news but it certainly does look like a strong come back. I would be a buyer at these levels. My short term target is $1.45. I do not have any shares tho but I might consider adding some here.

  3. hello, excuse my English, I make you my compliments, and when I follow your advice I have a good income, I bought SCON wanted to know what to think, you're really a myth .... thanks

  4. oh! thanks for your compliments! I am totally delighted! You can follow me on StockTwits @

    I did trade SCON in the past but I do not have it on my watch list. please send me an email to and I will respond to you. thanks again!

  5. New to this blog and have been reading over some of your older picks. Do you still like NPTN and API as they have both taken a sizable hit since February. I got in API at 2.00 towards the end of March as it looked like it was breaking out again but that seems to have fizzled out. Thanks for your insight!
