Guru Investment Theses on Alliance Fiber Optic Products Inc

Royce Funds Comments on Alliance Fiber Optic - Apr 18, 2016

Most recently, I've been looking at Alliance Fiber Optic (NASDAQ:AFOP), which makes high performance fiber optic components such as interconnect systems and couplers and splitters.



There's been a resurgence in the fiber optical business lately that hasn't yet been fully reflected in the share prices of many companies, so I like the opportunity there.
