GTAT projects that the deal will boost earnings and revenue, which is expected to ramp up to $600 million to $800 million in 2014. The sapphire segment of the company is forecasted to contribute 80% of the 2014 revenue.
GTAT has been struggling primarily due to its core solar business. Revenue in the latest quarter was just over $40 million, and net income was a loss of more than $38 million. Apple’s contract should change this weak performance into a long-term winner
GTAT is expected to pay back Apple’s nearly $600 million by 2020. This fact proves that Apple has a long-term commitment to sapphire glass and GTAT. Apple’s continued support of the company should lift the share price.
I think an investment in GTAT at these low levels could pay off big.
Recommended Trade Setup:
— Buy GTAT on a break above $10.50
— Set stop-loss at $8.97
— Set initial price target at $14.23 for a potential 36% gain in three months
