I am a baby semiconductor company with sales of around 1.6b and a market cap of almost 12b. I make high-performance analog and mixed signal Integrated circuits for customers in diverse markets including communications, computing and industrial. 70% of my customers are outside of the US.

My growth has been impressive. Beside the blip in 2001, I never had a down year in Sales, my average revenue growth of 20% CAGR in the last ten years, 15% CAGR in the last 5 years.
 Sales: 1996-> 422 434 560 607 865 1577 1025 1153 1439 1672 <- 2005 

My EPS is equally impressive,
EPS: 1996->0.44 0.47 0.59 0.65 0.88 0.93 0.73 0.91 1.20 1.58 <-2005 

with EPS growth accelerating from 5 yr CAGR of 12.4% to 31.7% growth in the past year (3 yr CAGR growth is 29.4%).

My balance sheet is pristine, with zero long term debts and a good cash position which I distribute as dividends with a current yield of 1.2%.

With all the recent sell off in INTC, I am currently at the lowest since 1996 for P/E (ttm: 26.5), P/S (ttm: 7.5), P/B (ttm: 4.7) and a low P/Cash Flow of 19.2 ttm. Morningstar sees me as the microsoft of semiconductor industry in terms of profitability and growth, and has given me a wide moat ranking.

Who am I ?

Disclosure: I do not have any position in this company. Please Throw a rec to continue the series
