I can't remember whether or not I opened this board, but JST is a great company. I've followed it for about two years, have been in and out of the stock, but still think it's attractive. They basically supply components that are necessary to create those pollution coal plants that China needs so badly. It's not an environmentally friendly play, but they pay a dividend and are directly exposed to energy in China.

One downside is that the company only has to issue earnings semi-annually, so it can be a long wait. It's also not always so liquid so you are better off using limit orders, than paying the spread to the house. I'd be interested in other people's opinions and insights into the company.
