Seeking Alpha: Microsemi Chugging Along

Microsemi (NASDAQ:MSCC) has always been a different sort of semiconductor company. In an industry where investors pay a lot of attention to leading-edge technologies, Microsemi has historically been better known for less advanced high-reliability products that are often sole-sourced. Where many semiconductor companies are tied heavily to end markets like communications, industrials and consumer products, Microsemi has long been more leveraged to defense and aerospace.

The end result of all of this is that Microsemi shares often seem to zig when others zag. But with the defense, aerospace, and space markets looking stronger into 2015 and the company still building up its underrated FPGA business, Microsemi seems to me to be getting stronger at a time when many investors are worried about the semi space. As I continue to see fair value in the low-to-mid $30's, I continue to believe this is a stock well worth investors' due diligence efforts.
