    Bill Smith : Ry:  I've seen growth estimates of 8%, 13%, and 14% (Morningstar, S&P, and Yahoo, respectively).  So there's some difference of opinion out there. Ry:  I've seen growth estimates of 8%, 13%, and 14% (Morningstar, S&P, and Yahoo, respectively).  So there's some difference of opinion out there.

    Bill Smith : Ry:  I can't figure it out either.  Maybe people are concerned about patent expiration, PC sales, etc?  I remember reducing consensus growth estimates Re: First reply: I see.

    Bill, I followed your buy recommendation on Dolby Labs. It's been roughly a year since your Sep 2011 article, and DLB's most recent financial status is out. Because you're the analyst-investor who posted the write-up, consequently you are the best person to approach regarding any updates on the company and its intrinsic value estimates.
