Seeking Alpha: Cascade Microtech Still Levered To Wireless Growth

More people are buying more wireless devices and those devices hold an increasing amount of RF chip content with each generation. That, in a nutshell, helps explains a least in part why Cascade Microtech's (NASDAQ:CSCD) shares are up 50% from the time of my last article on this manufacturer of probes and probe stations for the chip industry.

Cascade is indeed a chip equipment company, but its business also has a consumables-oriented operation tied to ongoing chip production levels. With that, I think the company remains well-placed to benefit from the ongoing growth in wireless chips produced by a top-tier client list that includes Avago (NASDAQ:AVGO), Broadcom (NASDAQ:BRCM), Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), and Qorvo (NASDAQ:QRVO), not to mention the emerging IoT that could potentially see millions of incremental wireless-enabled devices.
