    Synopsys beats by $0.12, beats on revenue

    EDA continues to be a hot market. SNPS started the year at $60 and is now over $85. My Wall Street friends want to know if it is time sell..... Not in my opinion. Now that the system companies are doing their own chips and EDA companies are climbing up the systems design flow I still see significant upside for EDA. Synopsys also continues to invest in IP (Sidense acquisition) which is a key enabler. I am also encouraged by Siemens continued investment in EDA so it is back to a three horse race which is for the greater good.

    It is interesting to note the business model changes EDA has made over the last year or two. The Mentor sales organization has transformed to a high touch - customer driven model, Cadence is flooding customers with AEs and technical support, and Synopsys has made significant organization changes to improve efficiency and focus. EDA continues to evolve........ absolutely.

    The transcript is worth reading, In fact, Aart is always a good read:

    Let me expand on these three elements of our value proposition. First, the age of Smart Everything or Digital Intelligence is here. Following the decades driven by Computation and then Mobility, Digital Intelligence is the third major wave of electronics impact.

    Week by week we can see its reach growing, be it through the Internet of Things, automotive, virtual reality, medical devices or industrial. The need to manipulate massive amounts of data, apply AI through machine learning, while guaranteeing security is unstoppable. All of this is made possible an insatiable hunger for next-generation advanced chips and complex software developed by our customers.

    Second, Synopsys is uniquely positioned at the very intersection of silicon hardware and software. Our design and verification tools are essential for the next-generation of advanced chips and systems. Our growing silicon-proven IP offering reduces risk and speeds time-to-market. In addition, our Software Integrity portfolio prevents code flaws from becoming security disasters.

    And third, we have maintained strong financial solidity while broadening our company TAM precisely for the opportunity at hand. Our recurring revenue model lets us consistently invest in advanced product development and support. We’ve managed our strong balance sheet and cash flow to enable both consistent stock buybacks and TAM-broadening acquisitions. And we’re driving shareholder value through long-term, high single-digit non-GAAP earnings growth.

    The Black Duck software acquisition is even more interesting. They paid $550M for this which isn't chump change. Looks like SNPS continues to press ahead in the SW direction, especially around security. Smart move.
