Company has too many competitors and is having tough time in this economy. Money can be used better elsewhere.

This company has $5.5 per share excess cash on its balance sheet. At the $2 EPS obtained in past years, this is a P/E of 3x. Even considering substantial decline in demand and $1 EPS, it would be a P/E of 6x.

The company does not spend a significant amount on R&D and its production model is largely based on variable costs, minimizing risk in case of downturn.

Current valuation is a solid floor and it could easily double in price if demand came at the levels of past years. Even if that happened in 3 years from now, it would be a great investment today at this price.
