It also manufactures integrated circuits, and provides design services and complementary technical services. The company's products are incorporated across diverse sectors.

Both analysts covering the stock recommend it as a buy, so there are no sell ratings on the stock. Data from Bloomberg has analysts forecasting the stock gaining 87% to $2.4 in the next 12 months.

TSEM is likely to record net income of $29.75 million, or 11 cents per share, for the first quarter of 2011, as opposed to a loss of $36.2 million, or 18 cents per share, in the year-ago period. Meanwhile, sales are pegged to reach $126.5 million from $113.8 million recorded in the year-ago quarter.

Gross margin is likely to rise to 41.6% from 14.3% in the year-ago quarter. For 2011 first quarter, operating profit is seen multiplying to $38.95 million from $160,000 in the first quarter of 2010.

Along with Medigus, developer of endoscopic and visualization medical devices, TSEM unveiled the successful sampling of the world's smallest camera for disposal endoscopic devices.
