3 Apple Suppliers Set to Shine on Investors

(Updates to provide additional Apple suppliers in third paragraph.)

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Apple recently ( AAPL) released its full list of suppliers, offering investors a valuable insight into the gadget maker's key component partners.

Apple's first-quarter earnings report, which comes after the close on Jan. 24, could therefore benefit suppliers such as Tri-Quint Semiconductor ( TQNT), Multi-Fineline Electronix ( MFLX) and Skyworks Solutions ( SWKS), say analysts.

Qualcomm ( QCOM), Broadcom ( BRCM) and Sony ( SNE) have benefited greatly from their relationship with Apple.

Circuit board specialist Multi-Fineline Electronix is one of the first Apple suppliers to have reported preliminary earnings, putting out exceptionally strong results.

Last week the company reported first-quarter revenue of $239 million, well above the $221.7 million analysts had been expecting, according to Yahoo! Finance. Wall Street analysts expect the company to report earnings of 36 cents per share in earnings, when it reports actual results on Feb. 9.

The company now sees sales of about $239 million, above the Street estimate of $215.6 million. Prior guidance had been for $200 million to $230 million in revenue.

Shares of Multi-Fineline Electronix jumped last week with the initial results, and company said it expects "customers A, C and D to represent approximately 5 percent, 66 percent and 27 percent, respectively, of net sales." It is widely believed customer C is Apple, and any continued strength from the tech giant may benefit Multi-Fineline going forward.

Over the past year, shares of Multi-Fineline have lost 7.5%, according to Google Finance.
