    Very strange and sad list.
    Of the top 10 GROWING companies, 2 are contracting…
    And, where does GloFlo and TSMC growth coming from?
    Is it just from QCOM/NVDA/BRCM/NXP?

    Yes, ain’t that great, phat? Doesn’t it just show how well the PE business model suits the IC industry? Now NXP’s revenues are all the way back to the level where they were when PE bought NXP in 2006. Six years and zero overall growth.

    Well, well – a PE-backed semiconductor company takes the #6 position. How is that possible?

    Hmm, seems like Qualcomm very quietly launched a new generation Hexagon DSP architecture (v5). Technical information is, as usual, sparse. They must have perfected stealth marketing.
