Why will people want 3D?
looking at topographical maps, looking at houses or an address as if you were actually there, looking at new cars or whatever as they look in real life. And, why not taking a virtual tour through a house? It might be helpful for graphic design and engineering. People could view their family members and friends as if they were actually there with them!
I was given some stock in HiFn during the dotcom boom who had put an algorithm for encryption/decrypt on a single chip to be used in routers. The stock opened on the market at $21. and 4 months later was at $151/sh.! I didn't hold it nearly that long. But, how many of these routers are in use? This Himax chip could be in 10s of millions of computers, phones etc.!!
THIS IS 2D TO 3D CONVERSION ON A CHIP.
Can anyone see how popular this will become? Am I wrong in thinking the stock price will explode?!!
Here's my theory: This stock has attracted a lot of amateurs similar to this guy I'm arguing with because of the really very generous div which even when cut in half is far better than any bank etc. Now that they got their div and it wasn't as much as before and the stock price worries them despite IMO the excellent news coming out of the company they are selling on balance. I typically buy stocks not even knowing if they pay dividends. HIMX has got to attract a different kind of investor. I'm actually expecting some astounding earnings reports to come out in the next qtr or two. I believe 3D like they are doing will become ubiquitous. People have become accustomed to seeing pictures in 2D for 100 years. They can't imagine anything different. It will take some time, but they will be amazed!
Why don't you bet me $500. that I'm wrong? What a monumental idiot? Why don't you go follow the other sheep? What are YOUR investments genius? You're the classic example of the loser bagholder. Just follow the crowd and people will get there ahead of you and you'll end up with next to nothing. I want to comment on your stocks. What do you have 2 shares of Apple?
