Be prepared to look at the development of optical communication industry

Wall Street analyst team Doyle Publishing Ltd yesterday wrote on SeekingAlpha analysis of financial performance of the leading companies in the field of optical devices Finisar's. Their conclusion is pessimistic. If they have a good analysis, whether our industry in trouble fast.

In fact, a few days ago Finisar CEO Eitan Gertel sudden resignation if he had let the outside world because of poor financial performance of Finisar resign, although officially denied this claim Finisar. Doyle analysis to verify the financial problems may encounter Finisar. These problems can be summed up that is Finisar's profitability fell again, and the reason is behind the rise over the past few years COGS costs faster than sales growth. As a direct result, Finisar's ROA is only 0.07%, ROE was 0.1%, which means that management is no return to investors. This means that even if investors put money in the bank than to vote for Finisar in exchange for higher returns.

Finisar Doyle conclusion is not supported by the current earnings outlook for the stock now. We are not the financial industry, for their analysis and conclusions can not comment. But from the feeling we live in the optical communications industry, the costs continue to rise should be an indisputable fact, more than Finisar, other optical device manufacturers face the same. Finisar has the leading technology in fact there are new technologies and products to improve profitability, most of their competitors do not have this power.
