You On Demand soars following bullish SA column

|By:, SA News Editor

SA contributor/hedge fund analyst Always Incredulous observes You On Demand (YOD +38.1%) has an exclusive Chinese nationwide license for distributing pay-per-view/VOD content (covers 19.7M cable/IPTV households), and has deals in place with top U.S. studios such as Disney, Paramount, Miramax, and Warner Bros.

The author likes YOD's willingness to price its offerings competitively with pirated DVDs, sees the company benefiting from Chinese cable and mobile video adoption - YOD has an app pre-install deal with Huawei, and is talking with other smartphone OEMs - and expects a $19M investment from Taiwanese hardware firm C-Media will give YOD plenty of time to turn profitable.

Shares have soared to new 52-week highs. YOD's market cap currently stands at $70M.
