Shares of Universal Display (NASDAQ: OLED  ) have fallen more than 15% since the company reported disappointing earnings in May, but Mr. Market may have gotten this one wrong, says Fool contributor Steve Symington in the following interview with the Fool's Alison Southwick.

    What a load of crap! PHOLED is a failed technology!!! After 15 years, UDC still doesn't have a PHOLED blue, and Quantum dots are on their way, offering a much better color reproduction and lifetime of the emitters.
