The valuation is just comical. Market cap of $300M when you subtract out cash, no debt and P/FCF of 4 (closer to 1.5 when you subtract out cash), P/E of 5 (2 when you subtract out cash) and reasonable P/B and P/TB. Very cyclical, but poised to weather any storm. Potential growth with increasing smartphone competition and LED market expansion (CFL's have mercury, LED's last 20 years, so market will shift).
