The balance sheet is highly levered with a net debt balance of $1.26B. Cash from operations and free cash flow are also highly negative over the last twelve months. There is potential here as SMTC is expected to be a large benficiary of AI and the company will be launching new AI platforms that should fuel future growth.

SMTC Manufacturing

This is a very successful semiconductor company trading near historical highs. If he owned this, he would be thinking of selling it, even though it keeps going up. The debt load is higher than he likes. The semiconductor sector is back in favor, and is more appropriate for momentum investors than contrarian investors at this time.
