Looks like Cirrus will have a huge year. Fiscal Year 2016 (April 2015 to March 2016) should be up dramatically in revenue over FY2015.

1)Expanding functionality and prices on their audio chips

2)Samsung is now a very big customer, not just Apple. Helped by Cirrus' recent acquisition of Wolfson. Cirrus had long suffered from the "diversification" problem of having Apple represent about 85% of their revenue at one point....had too many eggs in one basket.

3)Expanding their presence in the mid-tier phones, which is potentially huge in volume. Apple is primarily considered "top-tier" phones.

4)Growing sales in China from Apple. Longer term, India will grow as well.

5)Not only in Apple and now Samsung, they have a growing presence in the numbers 3 through 10 mfg's of smartphones, which represent about 30% world market share (numbers 1 and 2, Samsung and Apple are about 40% together). The remaining mfg's (#11 and on up)represent another 30% of world's market share.

Huge revenue numbers are coming....stock price should skyrocket in the next 12 months.
