    • I'm impressed with them , I like a company that thinks ahead and they seem to do just that . So far they've done as I had anticipated . They make all kinds of power control devices . It seems they have good management a nitch and a long term plan to solidify their market position. I ask you whats not to love about a company like this ?

    • O2 has its chips made in Taiwan and China where has lower cost compared with chips made in US or Japan.

      O2's LCD backlight inverter IC has good performance and innovative features. It dominates the LCD TV and NB markets.

      I worked in a inverter company and found O2 is the most competitive in the LCD backlight inverter IC industry.

      Since the LCD market grows everyday so you can rely on this good stock.

    • Though the company has substantial ownership by institutions, O2 has remained kind of a stealth stock -- at least to the retail crowd. Trading volume has been generally on the light side, which makes it less attractive for active traders.

      Actually, I don't mind the quiet, because it keeps many of the flies away. The one drawback is that the stock trades with a fairly high volatility. It can move up or down pretty dramatically on a modest increase in buying or selling volume.

      The company's prospects look very promising, especially for those with a long-term focus and patience. The stock has provided frequent opportunities to buy on pullbacks, and litigation costs have been putting a damper on earnings recently. I think the possibility that the company will pursue a listing on the HKSE creates uncertainty. It may be a significant positive in getting more exposure to the China market, but the market reacted negatively the last time they announced it.
