Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star dreamjob, succinctly summed up the MagnaChip bull case for our community:

This small cap has very optimistic growth projections; however, when I shrink these down to single digits the company still looks like it is selling at a bargain. There's manageable debt and high [return on invested capital]/[cash return on invested capital]. Add the recent earnings surprise in the last 90 days and I think we are looking at a winner.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong five-star rating, MagnaChip may not be your top choice.

After all, it's incredible to think just how much of our digital and technological lives are almost entirely shaped and molded by just a handful of companies.
