    Yep, I added too. I had another buy order in at $23.50, but even though it touched that level, I didn't get any of those shares. Maybe Monday?

    I used the downtick for my own buyback program and was able to buy back all of the trading shares that I had sold previously in the week. Buying IMOS below $24 just seems like a no-brainer with what's ahead of us. JMHO

  • Do any of you guys own 8150? Oasis bought shares, so how do we do whatever they did? After IMOS ceases to exist, wouldn't it make sense to stay with a company that has such a bright future? Thoughts?

    JD: What Caff and I are saying is that many of us did NOT incur any losses with this stock because we didn't get caught up in the craziness associated with the Google Glass rumor. Caff made money from $2 to $7.50, and is now interested in the stock at its present price. I got into the stock later than Caff, but I made money on every trade, and I exited the stock at about $10. I, too, am now once again interested in the stock, have a small position, and if it goes lower, I'll add a lot more shares. At this level and below it becomes an increasingly better and better value play, and the divvy is an added advantage. If you're short the stock, that's fine, but I have never lost money with this stock, and I have only played it as a long. Cheers.

    The point to be made is to keep the fundamentals in mind when investing. Some of us traded HIMX successfully before the momentum folks got involved, then sat out the crazy run to $16, and we are once again trading it successfully at this level. I suggest reading Jaret's Seeking Alpha article to get a better perspective on the long term outlook for HIMX.

    Unlike many here, I trade all the time--so much so that Scottrade has me identified as a day trader, which is pretty funny because I never sell at a loss. My largest holding is still GE and IMOS is my second largest. I owned a lot of CHS until last week's rumor of a sale to private equity, which allowed me to exit my position completely with a substantial gain on the run up. I love to build up a position in an undervalued company with good fundamentals, and then trade the swings all the time, which steadily lowers my cost basis. DHI is a good example because it often moves a lot in both directions. I'm just starting to build up a position in HIMX because I think the downgrade was overdone and the yield is currently about 4%. I intend to buy it all the way to the bottom and then play all the swings as it goes back up. For me the market is just tons of fun!

    HIMX tanking on stock scam report.

    Totally agree. I owned HIMX in the $8-$9 range, but exited when it went to double digits. Yesterday I began buying near the close at $6.60 and will add if it keeps dropping. I love the way the herd stampedes in both directions. All you need is a little patience and the ability not to get caught up in the herd's hysteria.

    Silly, neither you nor anyone else knows how high IMOS will rise either in the near future or a year from now. Who would have thought that some idiot or idiot institution would sell hundreds of thousands of shares in the $20's just a day or so ago? I'm just glad I used that opportunity to do my own buyback. Like others here, I have raised my minimum sell price in light of the recent news, and I suspect that the next few weeks and months are going to be highly rewarding to all of the longs here.

    Time for a Barron's revisit on IMOS story

    I, too, started buying again at $20.90. I decided to do my own buyback. Ha ha. I hate to have this much money tied up in one stock, but I usually do well in the long run when I buy during these kinds of selloffs.
