We are at the beginning of a new era in display screens. The OLED screens are brighter and more energy efficient. Universal Display is still a growing small company, 6.5B has automotive dashboards and who-knows-what screens in the future. What's not… More

Company has been downsizing for years and losing money year after year. Flat panels are a great investment to own at your home but the business aspect is spooky. Flat screens today will last decades and demand will slow. New TV types like 3D and… More

I see a lot of potential in OLED. If you subscribe to the theory behind Moore,s Law, and I do, advances in technology are increasing at an exponential rate. Wikipedia defines Moore’s Law as follows, “Moore's law is the observation that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles approximately every two years.” In essence, technology doubles, according to Moore, every 2 years. More current estimates are around 12 to 18 months. In this respect, R&D is of significant importance to me. Looking at the most recent 10-Q, OLED has increased spending on R&D. Revenues have been increasing yearly since at least 2010. OLED has been broadening their market worldwide. Profit sharing has been on the rise.

As far as potential litigation, the 10-Q shows several European patent challenges instituted in and around 2010, but nothing recent.

I recognize that CFRA has a “hold”recommendation, and it’s most negative category is “financial health.” However, I do like the positive ratings for growth, street sentiment, and price momentum. Other ratings are also neutral.

Purely my opinion, I don’t see a lot of challenges and/or pitfalls for OLED in the foreseeable future.

In sum, I believe OLED has a bright future (no pun intended, okay, maybe a little), and has nowhere to go but up.

All I need to do is look at my OLED display on my Galaxy S7 (built by Samsung with OLED's material).

We are at the beginning of a new era in display screens. The OLED screens are brighter and more energy efficient. Universal Display is still a growing small company, 6.5B has automotive dashboards and who-knows-what screens in the future. What's not to be excited about?
