What: Shares of Universal Display (Nasdaq: PANL ) rose more than 11% on above-average volume after the company reported strong third-quarter results last night. Management also said its patents are holding up both here and in Europe.
So what: Revenue tripled to $21.8 million, helping turn last year's $0.19 per share loss into a $0.12 per share gain. Analysts were expecting a $0.01 per share loss on $12.4 million in revenue, according to data compiled by Yahoo! Finance.
Now what: The report comes a day after analysts dismissed earlier speculation of a sourcing deal with Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL ) that would bring OLED screens to the iPhone.
