My wife got a call from our brokerage company a few minutes ago wondering if she would like to earn interest on her HIMX shares in her IRA account. I am assuming they are looking for shares to short. I don't even know if loaning shares from and IRA is legal. In any case, she thought it was some sort of sales thing and said no.
I don't think I have ever had that happen before. They may call again since I have more shares than she in my account.
If you follow a large number of companies you will find many false announcements. Some are the wrong co, or they just plain get the date wrong, or some are automated announcements guessing at when the date will be. The company will announce the earnings report date soon and then it will happen sometime in early November as usual.
I am so glad to see you posting again. I was hoping you didn't disappear!!! I like your enthusiasm especially with the contests. You also have a long history with the contests.
I will probably just keep the 3 but I really liked your idea about the fund concept. I think you should try that again. Maybe with 5 stocks and the longer time frame. Your last attempt got side tracked with the Yahoo debacle. If you try something like that again, I will surely be in!!!
Howdy folks. I am going to try to start a contest on the KTCC Investor Village Board. Most of you probably already know the details but they are listed there. My recent screening didn't come up with anything so might have to pull from some of my old standards.
I have moved over to investor village. The boards are simple and fast. There is little news or data though but I found other sources for that. Sign up is free unless you want a premium subscription that has extra bells and whistles. Come on over and leave this insanity.
Not only is the design of the boards terrible, they are so bogged down that they are just about unusable for me. I am going to start posting on some of the investor village boards. Sign up is free with a pay option for extra bells and whistles. Maybe see you there.
I agree with you about a correction in the fall. I have bought a bit during the brexit but now have been mostly selling.
Thanks for the tech leads. I will check them out.
I agree with your assessment. Even with my negative attitude, I am somewhat optimistic with the call. Once again, we have to wait another Q or two for the plant closure numbers to line out and new programs to continue to ramp. Once again, somewhat of a waiting game but we do seem to be heading in the right direction.
Sales are not the same as profits. Also, shareholders are last on the list to collect any value with the company's debt.
Too bad you are not pushing SIMO as I mentioned on the board before. It has made me a bundle and a half. I lightened up at the last run up and am adding back. It should hit $60 a share well before the end of the year. They raised client SSD growth from 100% to 150%. Hitting on all cylinders is an understatement.
I hope this is the one. Well, 0.19 is pretty much in the middle of their guidance. It would be VERY REMARKABLE if things actually worked out as they said for once and they hit their own guidance. I have gotten a very cynical attitude towards this company by now since the company has painted a promising picture for years and things have gone nowhere. The fact is that I and probably most of us would be glad if they hit their guidance for once which is a pathetic state of mediocrity since plenty of companies that I follow meet or exceed expectations quarter in and quarter out.
Sorry for the rant!
Me too. Looking back here makes it even more apparent.
Looks like we hit the $40s for a very short time. Just long enough to make a liar out of me.
