Taiwan Shooting and The Markets

Lawrence Henry, whom many stock-watching Corner readers will know, very

kindly sent in the following: “Derb—I own the stock of AU Optronics,

maker of LCDs and flat-panel displays for some big industry computer

operations, a Taiwan company. I checked anxiously this morning for any

pre-market selloff, and there was none. AUO is now down 50 cents (off $19

open, and a gain of $1.25 yesterday), and seems stable after the first

(usually wild) opening hour of trade. It’s a growth stock, and I would have

expected it to get hit seriously if there were any real market worries about

Taiwan or its election.—Larry”
