Three days ago, EggplantWizard shared a few of the stock's cheapish stats for our community: "No long term debt, 0.5 price to book, low P/E, solid long term prospects. ROE TTM >15%."

In a pitch from last month, skymutt2 shares that bargain-based reasoning, writing:

[S]till generating positive cash flow from operations in tough market conditions for semiconductor companies. Less exposure to US market and tapped US consumer than some competitors. Recently announced stock buyback. Lots to like here and the price is way right at a buck and change.
