NHTSA to require rear-view cameras on all vehicles. Gentex leads with their in-mirror rearview camera display for the segment of cars without in-dash displays. I believe this will prove to be a cost-effective options for most automative manufacturers to meet the NHTSA requirements. http://usat.ly/1ggL19q

recent purchase of homelink from Johnson Controls & growing inclusion of auto dimming mirrors in cars as a safety feature should help to make this stock thrive in the years to come

This is a truly wonderful business selling at a fair price. The company has a dominant 88% market share, which means that the company has a huge "economic moat," which should protect it for a long time. The company has a perfect balance sheet ($560 million in cash) and zero debt. It’s also consistently profitable - delivering double-digit profit margins and return on capital for over a decade. The company should grow at about 10% to 12% per annum over the next decade, which makes it a bargain at today's price of just over $17 per share. Also, a near-term catalyst that should drive the shares higher is the Kids Transformation Safety Act of 2007. It will require all new vehicles less than 10,000 lbs. in the United States to have a backup camera-based system by September 2014. There have been some delays in getting this Act passed; however, the final rule is currently expected by December 31, 2012. Investors wanting to profit from this need to start buying share soon.

It's way oversold for the modest miss in earnings. It will come back big time in time.

Auto demand will accellerate over the next few years, and company's mirrors will be used to meet new safety standards.

It is losing money and will continue to do so. Under chapter 11, most GM vendors must have taken a hit of some sort. I primarily prey on high P/E stocks. Also, the market cap is too high for the total scenario.
