Silicon Image (SIMG) designs and markets hardware that enables high-definition (HD) content in a variety of devices.  You’ll find their semiconductors in home theaters, personal computers, mobile devices, DTVs, and Blu-ray players.

The company also brings in revenue from licensing their intellectual property.

This Sunnyvale, California Company has also been a driving force behind industry standardization of HDMI and DVI formats.



Silicon Image’s financials are steadily improving.

For the first quarter, revenue jumped to $49 million, up from $34.3 million a year earlier.  The company continues to improve on their net income, posting a slight loss of $0.8 million this most recent quarter… compared to a $7.2 million loss a year earlier.

When the company turns the corner on earnings and is able to stay consistently profitable, it could be a boon for the stock.

Management was kind enough to provide guidance for the Second quarter of 2011.  They’re looking for revenue of $51 to $53 million.  But, they didn’t give earnings guidance which is a bit of a disappointment.
