    short play of the summer

     

    the street has apsolutely no confidence in this company. I'll tell you though where the bottom will be- watch out for big volume down day. That would be the signal, that all weak longs surrendered. At that point we would also cover our short position. Oh, yes I've just started web page for short plays, check link under my profile.

    Otherwise, OVTI is fine company, too bad competition is entering in big way.

    • well my profile was erased, and I held it from 1997. Lets hope Google introduce msg boards, because Yhoo became synonim with censorship.

      it is funny that shorts are one to take blame for
      everything and the real truth is that majority of people who follow posts on msgs boards lost money because over-enthusiastic bulls who appered educated and experts in the field. Seen it too many times.

    • I find it unlikely in the extreme anyone has a problem with shorts on this board. It appear institutional holdings are just under 80% having dropped about 8% since and mostly on the self off of 9 June. The remaining longs are not on margin or "weak"......I suspect the last of them have been gone for a while now.

      Just a guess.

    • (it looks like my profile was erased for good, somebody must have asked yahoo administrators and reported me as abusive, well, well, did not know censorship was reintroduced. Pathetic.)

      well, anyway

      Thank you guys,

      We entered short position because of chart pattern, now we are doing dd to decide are we to hold short position, cover or even possibly go long.

      Will cover if it breaks above 10 anyway.

      I know that being a short is not going to make me popular but remember that shorts are potential buyers. I will buy when weak among you start to sell.


      happy trading

    • Great read and this was when the stock was at $20 too....


      No doubt, OmniVision's rapid growth alone will attract competitors. Yet we believe the company enjoys certain advantages that others will find difficult to overcome. It has the early market lead, it has significant expertise, and it has a low-cost proprietary CMOS production method. These factors should allow it to fend off competitors. We expect OmniVision to continue benefiting for quite some time from the increasing popularity of digital cameras and camera phones. Market research firm iSuppli predicts that sales of CMOS image sensors will reach 207 million units in 2007. Nokia (nyse: NOK - news - people ) estimated in a recent presentation that worldwide camera phone volume could exceed 100 million units this year and increase to more than 300 million units in 2007.

      With no debt and almost $200 million in cash, OmniVision's balance sheet is strong. The company has the financial flexibility to enhance chipsets if necessary to accommodate future consumer demand for higher-resolution images and increased portability. This is evident in recent introductions of the smallest image sensor to date and the first 2-megapixel sensor. Forbes Growth Investor rates OVTI a "buy."

      • There is no question OVTI has an extensive and valuable portfolio of patents.

        Off the subject, I wish someone would mass market a devise grounded on a wireless mouse without a power source. The damm baterries on my mouse go dead all the time.........for whatever reason they are rough on duracels. We do have the patent

      • Of course, being a one-trick pony does pose significant risks. The company's fortunes could be short-lived if a competitor, such as National Semiconductor (nyse: NSM - news - people ), Sharp (otc: SHCAY - news - people ) or Motorola (nyse: MOT - news - people ), comes along with a superior technology.
