Does anyone know of a LCD chip maker.

Samsung opened a new multi billion dollar manufacturing plant in Asia earlier this year.

The reason I remembered it, was that it was expected to cause a substantial increase in supply and push prices down. That is discussed a little here:

FWIW... I personally try to avoid tech in my investments, even thought I work for a tech company. The technology is changing so rapidly, that any hiccup in a company's innovation makes it quickly obsolete. Yet the P/E ratios for the sector seem to price for perfection.
