Dialog: Buy the Dip! Cries RBC; iPhone Risk a 2018 Issue

Dialog: Buy the Dip! Cries RBC; iPhone Risk a 2018 Issue

Earlier this month, the shares of Imagination Technologies, a United Kingdom chip designer, sank more than 60 percent after Apple said it would cease a contract to use its products.

Apple only recently told Imagination Technologies that it will stop using its graphics chip. An expert at Barclays Plc, in his report, detailed that he acknowledges that Apple's kept procuring of experts, in power management and somewhere else, however, an extra 80 engineers contracted here could not hope to compare to the more than 1,300 designers Dialog utilized past year. The chips made by Apple would be used not only for iPhone, but also for AppleTV and iPod.

Tech stocks were the biggest sectoral losers, down 0.8 per cent after Dialog Semiconductor dropped 18.4 per cent. The supplier was reliant on Apple for more than half of its revenue, and the decision saw its stock drop by more than 75% as analysts questioned whether the business was could remain viable without Apple's business.

Dialog Semiconductor said it expects to meet expectations for its Q1 and full-year results. It follows Apple's decision to build its own iPhone graphics processors in a decision which has crippled another United Kingdom company, Imagination Technologies. "They are poaching like insane", the person said. It isn't unusual to see employers flowing between Apple, and it's suppliers.

He said Dialog has completed designs for chips that Apple plans to use in 2017 and 2018 iPhone models while it continues to discuss with Apple using its parts in 2019 phones.

Dialog Semiconductor could be on the verge of losing a supply deal it has with Apple, according to a report out of Reuters. This way, the company could beat Android makers when it comes to battery life.

The Apple operation has reached a size that is starting to represent a threat for Dialog, according to Iltgen, who believes that a complete shift to Apple's in-house development is unlikely in the short term.

Over the past dozen years, Apple suppliers CSR, PortalPlayer, Sigmatel and Wolfson have been replaced, pushing them eventually to merge with more diversified players.

Shares in the chipmaker lost as much as 25% in Frankfurt, before recovering some ground to close 15% lower.
