No. of Recommendations: 14
I am reluctant to "recommend" any stock, but if I WERE to recommend a stock that every participant on this board should have, it would be Nam Tai Electronics-NTE. Over the months, I've said that in different ways.

Here is one reason why:

(1) We have just seen UNTD-United Online take a swoon from $40 to $26 -- and with good reason. It majors in one area.
(2) We saw APPX-American Pharmaceutical Partners dip from $40 to $26 also, because of a perceived threat to the EXPECTATION in one area. (even though they have a broad product line)
(3) We have seen BSTE-Biosite decline from a high of $55 to a low of $27, because of a competitive threat on their #1 product.
(4) And although the China Portals FOUR (incl chinadotcom) are trying very hard to diversify their income -- it still enters each company primarily through one portal.

Is Nam Tai Electronics setting itself up in similar fashion?
I don't think so!!
Here is what they say about themselves in their news releases:

!Talk about being in the right place at the right time with the right price with the right product mix!

Two quarters ago (3/31), their revenue gained 79% y2y.
Last quarter (6/30), their revenue gained 112% y2y.
My estimate for the quarter soon to be reported (9/30) is 139% y2y.

Pretty solid, I'd say.

Me? Mostly factual, rarely cheerleading, but for Nam Tai I'll make an exception.

What do you think? Any reasons to doubt? (Other than monsoons, terrorists, earthquakes, and a North Korea bad hair day?)
