There was a brief buzz at the July AAPL buy of 5G tech suggesting they needed an immediate LTE Cat4 and Cat-M and maybe an NB-IoT solution for IoT and IIoT. But you and I know they are multi-year customers of QCOM so maybe those analysts were enjoying their pipes too much. On the other hand, AAPL is such a large company with such a diversified product line beyond the jazzy i-Devices that maybe there's actually some truth to the rumor. WHAT I AM GUESSING: R&D I am guessing that AAPL approached SQNS for for tests and product R&D which is just normal business and doesn't necessarily mean anything in the way of sales much less a buyout. some R&D units I further guess that it isn't the first time AAPL has approached SQNS for units for its own R&D. Thus, I' . m not excited over a rumor HOWEVER, recall GK said this: " recurring revenue from your wildest dream" ^THAT^ is a clear suggestion of a subscription service. But..... how does an IC vendor generate subscription revs? Ahhh it's just all a foggy uncertain mess that doesn't give anything of substance for a low-risk investor. And GK is notoriously wrong and deceiving in his comments. AND recall AAPL made a very loudly announced visit to Paris back in 2017(?) that could have included SQNS large institutional investors. If you're reading this then you are looking for a high risk high return investment to place your cash at just the right time. NOW? I don't know. But LA is an easy distance from Silicon Valley and One Apple Circle. And SQNS is too cash poor to support a large product fab order like an AAPL device would generate. I've previously stated that SQNS needs a Hero for its turn-around and waiting for that is a poor way to invest. I'm pretty sure you agree SQNS is a lousy investment to date unless you played the run-up and sold out at $4.xx-ish back in what.... July 2018 (?) I certainly wish I had sold out entirely back then. I don't see any evidence of a turn-around nor buyout nor legal settlement nor Regulator ruling in favor of SQNS. However, any one of those above would cause the share price to approach its max immediately. A combination of those would raise the share price target. So, there's your risk reward calculus to contemplate as you smoke your next pipe. --- REFERENCES --- Apple may adopt Sequans CAT M radios, says Northland SQNS ... https://thefly.com/landingPageNews.php?id=2613072 Apple may adopt Sequans CAT M radios, says Northland.

The Analyst Roth's Scott Searle maintains a Buy rating on Sequans with a 12-month $2.50 price target. The Thesis If Apple acquires Intel's assets, Searle said it would imply Sequans, a provider of single-mode LTE wireless semiconductor solutions, is among the shrinking population of non-Chinese and non-vertically integrated 4G and 5G silicon suppliers. Apple's tie-up with Intel's asset could create a scenario where all non-Apple and Intel baseband customers will be "fair game" for merchant suppliers like Sequans to target.
