    Why is OIIM a public company?

    Is there a law that you must grow to be public? I must've missed it if so.

    Though the company hasn't grown in a couple years they have been fighting multiple end market headwinds. They've also had some very promising success in general LED lighting, camcorder charging, and power solutions with Intel and AMD. The computer business grew nicely this quarter and the TV biz held in despite a tough backdrop.

    I'd give management a vote of confidence for stewarding shareholder capital effectively and conservatively. They've done particularly well in down cycles. I like the fact that they keep a lot of cash around because I think it helps them win business. They could be a bit more aggressive buying back stock but that's a fairly small issue in the scheme of things.
