    Gents, long time no see. My imprisonment in the sandbox ends and I start my journey home next week. Been a long time since I checked in on BFDI. Went max margin all in on just Himx last yr and crossed my fingers. Jumped out in January around 15. Still holding some shares as they go long term cap gains next month, and with tax rates, holding during this pullback doesnt really hurt that much as Obama would have got a large portion of those gains. Went massive short the market on the 21st....we'll see how that plays out...been burned on that idea before....but this time its different? Whats everybody else involved with? BFDI a straight pump and dump? The standard crew still here? I havent been reading any boards at all for the last 6 months more or less.

    Yeah I got off margin in late Jan. Have some core shares that turn long term in 2 months. Given the gains, thetx difference is worth a couple bucks per share in gugive back anyway. I wouldn't hold on margin, but I woukdnt sell just because of boa weak d!cking it.

    BoA downgrade. $12.50 tgt. Funny though, CS just upgraded recently. Considering the mkt potential of their pseudo new tech product monopoly, one has to wonder the integrity of these IB's. As if we didn't know they were sleezeballs already. You got big name players with significantly different takes on valuations...all of whom have been attending these investor conferences. Gotta wonder sometimes.

    Lets discuss. 10 Mar we get massive volume and a run up to 16, caused by the CS upgrade to $19, with the top clients having the lead turn on the upgrade which caused the huge volume and run 2 days prior to the public release. Seems legit considering the huge volume on the 10th. Mar 13th himmy sells off that run on a day when the mkt sells off pretty considerably. Himmy attends BoA run conference on 17-21st. Himmy picks up the trend line from the mkt selloff on the 13th and rallies upward until the 4th day of the conference. It drops on very weak volume the 4th day of conf...shouldnt smart boys know by then and be unloading? Overall mkt punished severely on the 21st and 24th with large volume, and himmy is obviously punished as well. Now BoA releases a downgrade? Folks, BoA sees a mkt decline coming and wants to protect their reputation ahead of this correction. They believe in himmy's long term success, but know that the high flyers will be punished accordingly in a mkt correction...we all the know rising/falling tide idiom. CS got their upgrade out ahead of the mkt uptrend breakdown, BoA didnt have b/c they were waiting on conf. CS can blame macro mkt, BoA can not. Short term, house of pain perhaps, long term, gold mine.

    Btw, how do i know all this? because results and conf call occurred in jan, IB conf 3-5 march, and another IB conf on 12 mar. BoA was in the know, they just had to wait until their the time BoA could get a word out, mkt was starting to bleed.....Just my 2 cents gents. You interpret how you wish.

    i'm thinking it may test a mid 13.xx first before a bounce. macro mkt not strong.
    good to see you're still here though. i'm retiring this summer. thank you himax. apparently going all in with max margin can pay off.
