Currently, China Digital is expected to grow at a solid pace of 19.7% annually. That's faster than industry peers like Dell (Nasdaq: DELL) (4.5%), Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI) (5.5%), and Texas Instruments (NYSE: TXN) (10%).  

CAPS member cheaply elaborates on the bull case:

[China Digital] has very solid fundamentals. A decent PE, low debt, good cash flow, and strong financials. Earning estimates are on the up. and with a dip in the price, it looks like a good time to get in. Most analysts give it a strong buy, and I agree with them in this case. Now I'm hoping that the market will agree with me as well.
