Hot Picks of the Week May 30-June 4

Highlights this week:

The Pakistan government has announced it will be including LED lights in its fiscal year 2016-2017 budget, the emerging market is expected to present high growth rates of CAGR 45% till 2020, but the source of the projections remains unclear.

Epistar announced it will be raising its InGaN LED prices by 15% this week, and only certain products would be affected. Most in the industry agree this is a move to improve profits, due to increase in manufacturing and labor costs. Chinese manufacturer Leyard has also announced it plans to invest in AR technology through its strategic investment in Magic leap.

LEDVANCE, a spin-off from Osram’s traditional lighting and LED lighting business, has become a legal entity as of July 2016. Acquisition talks are projected to be completed then, earlier rumors that talks would be completed by May appear to have been too optimistic.

Turning towards new Apple developments, a supplier leaked photos of MacBook Pro OLED touch panels, which confirms earlier projections by KGI Securities Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo that the model will sport a new OLED touch panel above the keyboard region. The rumored OLED iPhone has also attracted attention from financial analysts, who are now predicting which companies to bet on.
