  • Membership Drive Update: In the first 48 hours we've hit almost 20% of our goal. An encouraging start to be sure, but we can't stop now. We need to pull enough subscription revenue forward to counter severe cash flow deficits resulting from a dramatic slow-down in ad spend thanks to the global pandemic which shows no signs of letting up in the near-term. We're doing everything in our power to keep our heads above some very choppy water, but we can't do it alone. We need your help. So if you've ever thought about giving our premium service a try, there's no better time to do it than right now by taking advantage of one of our discounted multi-year plans. Thanks in advance for your continued loyalty & support!

My mid-year review of NPTN

INTRO Here's my semi-annual exercise to see if I remember why I own the stocks I own, and so I can check back and see if their stories have changed. I post in case it helps others too.

NPTN ($0.321B Mid2017)
Neophotonics is a high-tech electronic company that attracted me because of its work in electro-optical switches, a key element of increasing the bandwidth of the Internet. The more we stream, the more old hardware has to be replaced with faster switches.

While revenues have been increasing > 40% in the last 4 years, and the net income is trending to positive, the stock has dropped ~ 30% since I bought it near its 1H17 peak.

I'll continue to research the company to see if the disappointing quarter was a bit of bad luck or reason to believe there will be downward trend.

(Returning To Stock Screening -

DISCLOSURE LTBH but only just begun in 2017 as I switched from GigPeak's buyout and into NPTN
(I've also collected links to the other discussion boards and my other stocks over on my blog
