Actions Semi's growth prospects and rock-solid financial position continue to support its five-star CAPS status. Over the next five years, Actions Semi is even expected to grow its bottom line at a substantially faster pace (25% per annum) than listed rival Texas Instruments (10%), as well big-cap chip plays such as Intel (Nasdaq: INTC) (12.8%), AMD (NYSE: AMD) (11.3%), and NVIDIA (Nasdaq: NVDA) (14.3%).

CAPS member Stocktowin even tapped Actions Semi as the perfect takeover target for one of those gorillas:

Valuation wise, current price is way too cheap under any valuation model. If the investors community keeps on refusing to place it at least close to book value, this company will be bought by its competitors for $4 soon. ...

Still thinking that it won't happen on [Actions Semi]? I've heard that kind of myopic thinking on tons of past buyouts before they actually happen. As I said, with tech giants in the U.S. and Asia sitting on hoard of cash pile and [Actions Semi] ... in the 2nd biggest economy, of which consumption and capital investment are growing at unprecedented speed, I'll bet my house with these doubters any time.
