This is really looking good. I was hoping to buy back in at some point. Don't know if I will ever get the chance.
Would you also recommend not replying to suspected paid pumpers also???
I am glad you are back. I was getting a little worried when you did post there for awhile.
Thanks for the short links.
Great to hear from you mawcheck. I got to DKS in a round about way. Big 5 Sporting Goods came up on one of my screens. Looking at their products on-line I was not very impressed. Most stuff seemed like lower end junk that you could buy at any discount store. They looked undervalued so I bought some stock figuring they were making money regardless if I like the merchandise. I remembered that I followed DKS at one time but never bought. I am east of the Mississippi, so I have personal experience in #$%$ stores and thought they were a decent place to buy things in which I am interested (mostly outdoors rather than team sports). I bought a little stock and already sold since I am somewhat nervous about the market in general and would like to concentrate on some holdings in which I have a high degree of confidence. I think they are a good bet and still have a decent growth potential as they begin to open store out west. Of course, recently was a good time to buy on weakness unless it continues.
I bet you are sorry you asked!!!
Pullinup up is correct. I take the calculate the % gain for each stock using the starting price and the ending price plus divi and average all 3 picks.
For your pics, I have listed in the reply below individual returns of :
microcaptrader KTCC 5.11
microcaptrader STLY 0.77
microcaptrader HTM -2.85
which averages to 1.01.
I am using starting and current prices for each as follows with no divis on these:
microcaptrader HTM 0.6382 0.62
microcaptrader STLY 2.6 2.62
microcaptrader KTCC 10.57 11.11
Percentages are calculated as follows:
((final+divi)-start)/start * 100%
I hope that helps. Please let me know if I am missing something or got something wrong.
Keytronics reported this last week and improved the contest return from below zero to over 5%.
I caught up with dividends this week and have noted those after the return prices below. Let me know if I missed one.

Only 2 more weeks to go. Some how I have come up and grabbed a solid hold on the lead that may be hard to beat in two weeks. Valuebimbo came up from no where to take second place in a three way contest with bodybag and shiftsuper.

"Which appreciates more in the next 18-24 months?"
I have not a clue but I think both will be grand slams. I probably depends on the particular point in time as I am sure the road will we up and down for both.
Actually the forward PE for SIMO is slightly lower than HIMX. Like HIMX, I think there is a lot of potential that is not being accounted for in new product ramp ups. That being said, I own a boat load of both and actually stopped buying SIMO because of the size of my position and to a lesser degree the run up. Some aspects are so similar that I get them confused at times and like I said am surprised it is not discussed on this board.
Thanks for your 2 cents, it is appreciated.
You must be new to the board not to know that SB has been spouting the same stuff for a long time regardless of price, outlook and valuation at the moment and under multiple aliases.
Why doesn't anyone talk about SIMO on this board? It is much like HIMX in the facts that is a Taiwanese tech company paying a nice divi with a boat load of new products. The only difference is that they are further along with commercialization and the results are starting to hit the bottom line.
When will you pour???
