    There must be a well connected small bunch on Wall Street in collusion with Chardan. It looks like they have been picking on and bashing HIMX ever since I've known about HIMX. Why are they picking on HIMX? There must be other stocks they're doing this to also. Yet, despite all their bashing HIMX went from less than a $1./share to $15. in about a year. That's a pretty meteoric rise! $4./share price target is beyond absurd. Chardan can't hold HIMX down

    Remarkably HIMX has been trying to tout this pico projector for several years now. They are actually the leader in this! What excited me most though is that HIMX tried to tout their 2D to 3D conversion chip several years ago. Not only does it display 3D as 3D, but it actually converts 2D to 3D!!! I'm not making this up; its dependent on some special physics of light. It occurred to me but apparently lost on everyone else that this could be good for giving people a virtual walk through for real estate or a view from the top of a building or viewing a road map to an address or view for surgeons or who knows. I agree it looks like people just can't grasp things unless it smacks them in the face.

    Is it Wichita or tX

    I think that was addressed in the last cc. Actually, I'd say it doesn't look like Wichita Falls or many places in TX are going to have any issues with drought for quite a while now. It looks like just the opposite. Saw that on the news with pictures of their Lake Arrowhead and they said it was back to normal.

    However, there is still Calif. which has got to have much bigger drought problem and I don't think they get those deluge type rains like TX. THE MORE IMPORTANT NEWS I THINK is that FSI did this well WITHOUT orders from Wichita Falls and they are saying this will continue! I've made over 70% on FSI in less than two months. I've bought stocks before that have done exceptionally well, but this is outstanding. I'm assuming you're doing very well on FSI also.

    Other things to note is we should expect oil drilling and oil well services to pick back up because the price has made a quick rebound; although, someone reported that Iraq was going to flood the market with oil. Don't know what the break down of FSI's revenues is, but they seem to be doing very well.

    I haven't yet. I would really like to cut loose of this yahoo entirely though.

    Who gave me a thumbs down?.... Oh, I know, its frankie.

  • discountbrains by discountbrains May 26, 2015 10:31 AM Flag

    Probably a month ago or a little more I bought a lot of FSI. I have already made 70% on it so far! I'm going up. Is anyone going with me?.... One needs to be cautious though; at this point this is paper profits. I tried a few weeks ago to reduce my position and none of my order was filled. It was trading pretty light back then. If I try to sell with much heavier volume in the future I will probably be able to.

    On another note, last week I saw an interesting article about how smartphones are on their way out and will be supplanted by wearables such as HMDs etc. My disguised link to it was taken down and my whole post was even deleted. Yet, frankie can come on here and post multiple modified links and get away with it! I need to go over to stocktwits and leave this yahoo alone. I wish we all would migrate somewhere else and just let yahoo languish somewhere in cyberspace.

  • what about the future prospects due to the Calif. drought? Now they are jumping on Starbucks and the bottled water industry for using too much water. Yet, by my figures the entire bottled water industry uses less than 0.1% of what any municipalities use and this in turn is less than 20% used. Agriculture uses 80% of the water. I haven't done the math, but the 30% saved from evaporation by FSI's Watersavr might even be more water saved than the bottled water industry uses or Starbucks uses!

    Some people have claimed in the past that if a company announces their earnings after the market is closed that is a sign news is not so good. Maybe sometimes this is true, but u can't read anything into this. Many companies have a habit of releasing their earnings after the close. If I'm not mistaken I believe AAPL does. Of course, a company releases their earnings whenever its convenient for them. It turns out these earnings are 400% times consensus! The street BETTER be cool with this.

  • get so excited about that??? Wu said, "HIMX is in ALL THE HEAVYWEIGHTS IN THE INDUSTRY". Isn't that a lot more important to u? Wu said they are all coming to HIMX for their designs.

    When I see Jeb's name I go on to the next msg-there is nothing to see here.

  • discountbrains discountbrains Apr 20, 2015 2:54 PM Flag

    Do I need to show u anything?? So what, who cares? What do I care what u think? I started by repeating what someone else said which I see as highly possible and U come on here and try to attack me for everything I said. U have a misguided sense of importants if u think people need to impress U.

  • discountbrains discountbrains Apr 20, 2015 1:45 PM Flag

    U just keep chipping away don't u? Ever looking for a flaw. You're giving me the impression you're a real loser who is saying, "I can't do this; therefore, he can't be doing this." Did I not make it clear I've had no website for quite a few years? This was a self-published book, btw, so I never even bothered trying to get a publisher to market it. If I want to market anything in the future I think there are so many outlets now such as AMZN, Etsy, YouTube, etc.

    I think this is funny: There is a local investment adviser who does a radio show on Saturdays (I believe) here . I've only listened to a few minutes of his garbage. He has told people they don't know enough to buy stocks. He has only promoted funds and continually lambasts any that are promoted by others. He never says what he recommends. I've sent him a couple of critical emails before. In the last one I told him what I was making on HIMX or maybe another stock and he wrote back saying, "U can't be doing this". In my first email I started with "PLS, I need help!" And, then proceeded to take him apart. I think he actually thought I was seeking his help.

    I own zero what? BTW in 3 weeks I've made over $3k on FSI as it stands right now. I know what it is, I've seen your type before. When someone says they sold n number of shares of something and made x $ on it u are one of those who only wish they were doing 1/2 that well and u call them a liar. I've seen this numerous times before on a msg board.

    No, my book is not on Amazon. I'd have to get an ISBN # for it which is no big deal. I only promoted it on my own web site years ago. I don't even bother with selling it now. I only mention it sometimes in passing and people say they want to buy it. I make sufficient amount of money trading stocks that I don't even bother.

  • discountbrains discountbrains Apr 18, 2015 9:53 AM Flag

    Zero. That's 0. I get it, u don't believe me. It infuriates me that someone doesn't believe me. I feel like I want to beat it into your head, but I should let it go and leave u to your ignorance. U know what's even worse: a guy who bought my book (don't know if it influenced him at all) used to post on the HIMX board pretty regularly. He and I happened to be invested in some of the same stocks. From his posts he once said he had over 100k shares of HIMX which he bought just under $2. and I think he sold at about $14. He had a lot of TQNT and SWKS. I had some TQNT, but sold out for about a 20% loss because they kept losing money. He held onto these stocks and I figure he made well over $1.7M!-a lot of that on HIMX alone! All three stocks turned out very well. He was pumping GTAT, though, and I think he lost some on that.

    If u are one of those who doesn't take what I said seriously I feel sorry for u. I hate conservative people. I think their brains must be wired to think that way. They malign Elon Musk. I actually think he is taking a big risk, but he ought to be applauded and encouraged for what he's trying to do. Almost no one else is stepping up to do it.
