Shares of touch screen technology developer, Neonode Inc. (OTCBB: NEOND) were up 5.6 percent in late-morning trading on Thursday after the company announced a licensing deal with Taiwanese consumer electronics maker ASUSTeK to develop a series of products that will include Neonode’s zForce® optical touch screen solution.

Neonode shares touched a new 52-week of $3.75 on Thursday, up from Wednesday’s closing price of $3.55.

“I firmly believe that the combination of our low cost high-performing touch screen and the outstanding know-how and experience of ASUSTeK will make this a win-win for both ASUSTeK and Neonode,” said Neonode’s CEO Thomas Eriksson in a statement.

Neonode provides optical touch screen solutions for handheld consumer and industrial electronic devices in Sweden and internationally. The company’s touch screen solutions are based on zForce, an optical infrared touch screen technology that supports one-handed navigation allowing the user to operate the functionality with finger gestures passing over the screen; and Neno, a software-based user interface.

The Stockholm-based company effected a 25 for 1 reverse stock split on March 28. Since then, shares have been up as much as 25 percent.

About Penny Stocks

The term "penny stocks," also known as micro-cap equities, micro caps, small caps, pink sheets, refers to shares in a company that trades for less than $5.00. Most penny stocks trade on the OTCBB market and the pink sheet electronic quotation service. Penny Stocks can be very volatile and can see gains as much as 500% in a day. Volatility in penny stocks is also dangerous because penny stocks can come down as quickly as they go up. If you trade penny stocks based on stock picks, make sure to always do your due diligence on the companies you're considering, use stop loss orders, and book your profits when you are in a position to do so.
