Company does not present itself well to investors. No one can tell what the direction of customers and sales are heading. Himx has unused share buyback authorization and it seems to be dormant. Over $100 million in cash is not being deployed and their technology only has one or two year lifecycle. Maybe this really is a 7-8 stock.
I would think Q3 would be the strongest on top line and earnings due to holiday pre orders. I thinks Q3,guidance of 12-14 cents is likely.
Here is John's response:
You invest at your own risk. If you can't handle the volatility of a high beta stock, then buy muni bonds and turn off your screen.
