Its valuation becomes even more attractive when one looks at the company麓s P/B ratio (2.8x vs. an industry average of 15.6x) and P/S ratio (2.0x vs. 4.7x). However, below average margins, returns and growth projections are three major sources of concern.Unifi (UFI)

Himax Technologies(HIMX) is gradually and relentlessly turning around after a woeful time in the recent past. Himax is seeing growth in every last bit of its product sections, including little and medium driver ICs, large board driver ICs, and non-driver ICs. One of the factors for the organization's development is solid interest from its Korean end client. The organization as of late was downsized by Bank of America. The liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) business of the organization, which was mostly reliant on Google Glass project, influenced the Bank�� update as the Google Glass launch was deferred. Anyhow investors ought to be hopeful about Himax's development as its products are ingredients of various gadgets & devices that are in high demand. In a long run, such updates (Bank of America pertinent to Google Glass) should not make a big deal in performance of the company.

Alamy You can never know in advance all the news that will move the market in a given week, but some things you can see coming. From the world's largest consumer tech company posting its iEarnings to a pivotal end to the trading month, here are some of the things that will help shape the week that lies ahead on Wall Street. Monday -- Growing Apples: Lately, Apple (AAPL) hasn't been the growth stock darling that it was through most of the past decade, but it seems to be turning the corner. Apple is expected to post growth in revenue and earnings when it reports fiscal first quarter results on Monday afternoon. It's not likely to be much. Analysts see revenue and earnings per share climbing by no more than 5 percent over last year's holiday quarter. That may seem low given the success of the iPhone 5S and iPad Air that hit the market late last year. However, it's been hard to overcome the slide in Mac and iPod sales. Tuesday -- Comcast Stems the Bleeding: Another company showing renewed signs of life is Comcast (CMCSK). The country's largest cable provider hasn't had a problem growing its Internet and broadband phone services, but it's been struggling since 2007 to keep its pay TV customers around. Comcast finally surprised investors earlier this month by announcing that it closed out the fourth quarter with more subscribers than it had three months earlier. This is the first time that Comcast has posted a sequential increase in video customers after 26 quarters of declines. Comcast reports on Tuesday. Hopefully it will shed some light on this welcome development, letting us know if the cord cutter fears are in the past. Wednesday -- Are We Friends Again: It will be Facebook (FB) hoping that the market clicks "Like" on the leading social networking website's quarterly financials on Wednesday. Facebook had a rocky start as a public company two years ago, going public at $38 and falling into the teens several months later. However, explosive top- and bottom-l
