    Estimating around $15-17 million in cash after rockband liquidation.....cash per share at about 20-21c per share.....This stock warrants a 30-40c value just on this transaction

  • Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Gaming Peripheral Market 2016-2020
    Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global gaming peripheral market: Corsair Components, Razer, Mad Catz Interactive, Logitech International S.A., and SteelSeries.
    Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Cooler Master, Creative, Gioteck, Kingston, Microsoft, Plantronics, ROCCAT, Sennheiser, Sentey, Sharkoon, Skullcandy, Sony, Thrustmaster, Tt eSPORTS, and Turtle Beach.
    Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the key trends for market growth will be the emergence of gaming consoles with whole-body sensors. Nintendo Wii was the first gaming console that used body movements for gaming.

    The success of the console propelled Microsoft to launch its own gaming console with body movements. The first version of Kinect needed exaggerated body movements for proper functioning of controls during gaming.

    However, the next generation of Kinect will use whole-body camera to record better to provide the gamer with real-life gaming

    20% down on 25 million shares in 2 days....sure smells like capitulation to me.......If this is not the flush that everyone has been waiting for ,then I don't know when else it could be
    The target price at $11 seems more reasonable now for the short-term....Any correction that could have happened at the next earing release is now probably not going to happen....in fact that's when I think the long term upward trend will take hold..
    Speculation on my part :
    The stock could have rallied going into earnings maybe to $11-12....and then go down 20% if this news were released then.....so I am saying.....any fear going into earnings is GONE IMO...

    •Following the departure of a key executive, HIMX received a price-target cut to $11 from $14 at Craig-Hallum. The shares have been moving lower for months, including two big drops in the past two sessions, with the stock last seen 10.5% lower at $7.38. This will mark Himax Technologies, Inc.'s first close below its 320-day moving average since January, and short sellers are hoping for more losses. During the past two reporting periods, short interest on HIMX grew by 23%, and now represents nearly 12% of the equity's total float.

    2nd quarter and current year unaffected...AR VR is a small part of the business.....
    COULD LIMIT POTENTIAL BUSINESS IN AR UNIT ONLY

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • 16:07 ET - Baird sees a very recent assembly issue at a key Himax(HIMX) augmented-reality customer hurting the semiconductor company's AR unit in the short term, as the shares dropped 9.4%. Medium-term growth opportunities for HIMX, notably for AR, virtual reality and organic LED, remain intact, Baird says. The firm says its 2Q and year revenue outlooks are unaffected, even if revenue upside potential is more limited. Today's fall put the shares back into negative territory for the last 12 months. It's a "very attractive entry point for the medium-term investor, in our view," Baird says. HIMX said earlier technology chief Chih-Chung Tsai is retiring from that position, but will become vice chairman of a subsidiary. (jonathan.vuocolo@wsj.com; @jonvuocolo)

    This is on their web site.....left out on the press release

    Mr. Tsai has transferred his duties to designated company-wide functional business segment leaders who will report directly to Chief Executive Officer and President Jordan Wu. The Company currently has no plan to announce a replacement CTO role.

    SO PLEASE RELAX

  • First !!!!
    for the CFO to respond to emails before issuing a press release is unheard of....especially when they are so tight lipped !!!!
    Second !!!
    Yeah I be upset to if I were an analyst...what the hell I am upset being an investor......but this reaction is over the top.....
    third !!!
    These analyst have been so wrong on the way up and on the way down...These guys have to remember that the information that they seek would be insider information. Management must think that this news was no big deal....because he is staying anyway

    This is a frustrating stock.....management's main weakness is communication....and these Ivy leaguer CFA 's need to get a grip with their ego's ......

    Now !!!!
    If it were the CEO or CFO in a management change then I can see the anger......
    So if the CTO were to leave ....you think the intellectual property leaves to?....how stupid !!!...
    There must be others who were under the supervision of the CTO......
    What about the CEO?....you think he does not know what is going on?....give me a break!!!

    The critical time for me would be the next 2hours......If there is no news by then I feel it very unlikely that HIMX would do a document dump on Friday before a holiday....they are to professional for something like that...
    The only other thing that I can think of is something got leaked out.....but HIMX is so tight lipped about anything.....so I put no value in any rumors....
    This could all be nothing else but positioning....or scare tactics by "smart money ".....and if so...they succeeded in the tune of 12 million shares WOW !!
