Samsung Electronics Co. (005930) forecast a recovery in sales after the world’s biggest smartphone maker posted second-quarter profit that missed analyst estimates on competition from Chinese makers and gains in the Korean won.
New products and demand for displays will boost results in the third quarter, the Suwon, South Korea-based company said in a statement today. Operating income fell about 24 percent to 7.2 trillion won ($7.1 billion) in the three months ended June, the company said, the third straight quarterly drop.
Samsung is counting on demand for fourth-generation devices to revive growth as Apple Inc. (AAPL) lures premium customers and Chinese manufacturers Xiaomi Corp. and Lenovo Group Ltd. (992) pack features into cheap phones to lure budget buyers. Currency moves cut the value of overseas earnings as the South Korean company’s grip on the market for screens larger than 5 inches faces new competition, with Apple said to be preparing bigger iPhones.
“Samsung earnings will rebound in the third quarter, largely driven by explosive demand for 4G smartphones in China,” Claire Kim, a Seoul-based analyst at Daishin Securities Co. said by phone. “If Samsung can maintain at least 20 percent market share in that segment, it will see higher smartphone sales during the quarter when the significant impact from Apple’s new devices isn’t yet expected.”

Painful Quarters Ahead for Himax (HIMX) But Already Priced In - Northland Capital Markets
pretty much, Mr. Market knew it will be a bad couple of quarters based on Samsung inventory correction and that's the reason why we went from 16 to 6. and I think this is just a valuation call based on next years growth and PE.

Northland Capital Markets analyst Tom Sepenzis reiterated his Outperform rating and $12 price target on
Himax Technologies (NASDAQ: HIMX) ahead of Q2 results, saying while the next two quarters will be painful the downside is already reflected in the stock.
Sepenzi said, "The first half of 2014 has been one of major disappointment as inroads at Samsung have been met with severe inventory corrections as well as concerns over the LCOS business. We believe the troubles will continue into the September quarter, with possible further downward revisions, but believe this is now largely reflected in the stock price."
Google Glasses for blinds, is an idea to help blind people.But,what is
diferent?First,the blind would be able to activate the ‘’Blind Mode’’ by
voice.When the version is activated,this version would bring a lot of
benefits like a ‘’sonar’’,that sends an signal and it would see if there is
anythig or anyone in front off the blind person.Other benefit would be an
app that would help the blind see if the bus arrived.The blind activate by
voice(like ‘’let me know when the bus 55 arrive’’)and using the frontal
camera,the blind would be able to catch the right bus.And another idea
is,an app activated by voice that would ‘’read’’ a text in braile or even with
letters and ‘’say’’ to the blind.
Only 7 trading days left.
lots of traders will get in before that date, even shorts don't like to pay stock holders dividend of 4%.
