2,145 Call Options at $10 Strike Price (214,500 shares) were sold today for Dec 2013 at over $1 (last trade was $1.10). That means someone is expecting HIMX share price to be well over $11 by the 3rd Friday in Dec. 2013.
The March 2014 $15 calls are bidding $0.60/share.
The March 2014 $13 calls are bidding $0.85/share (which I am considering selling for a net $13.85).
If people knew how to play options, there are great value at buying HIMX here (or just not selling your shares into the market) and selling Dec 2013 or March 2014 calls.
