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.
