Applied Optoelectronics Inc. ( AAOI ) announced Thursday morning that it expects to report second quarter revenue of approximately $117.3 million. Prior guidance had been for revenues of $106.0 million to $112.0 million. Non-GAAP EPS is expected to be between $1.31 and $1.36, up from prior expectations of $1.09 to $1.19.
As part of my portfolio reorganization, I bought a 10% position 30 days ago, and have enjoyed the 25% ride. Put in a $1 trailing stop this morning when all hell broke loose (the good kind!), and it triggered a couple hours ago. I know this next part’s a fool’s errand, but trying to decide when to jump back in. I like its current outlook.
This morning AAOI raised guidance for the 4th quarter in a row.
I am long AAOI as well and am excited about its growth prospects and valuation.
