    I won't be googling anything. I will use Bing. I never liked google from the get-go. Its really too bad they own YouTube otherwise I'd have no business with them at all.

    I don't know about MX, but I know Haschultz was invested in TQNT, not TNQT. We both were invested in TQNT about the same time, but I sold out of TQNT in what proved to be too early and lost money. If I had held 6 mo longer I would have made money.

    GET OUTTA HERE! U absolutely don't know what you're talking about, idiot! Do some real research on HIMX. HIMX has been in business over 20 years and always, always made money. HIMX started out making drivers for large screen TVs and has expanded strongly into drivers, controllers, timers for smartphones and other display screens. The bulk of HIMX's SUBSTANTIAL revenues come from clients with no association with GOOG. HIMX makes other products which sell very well to a wide range of customers. Do u really believe what u are saying? What an astounding, clueless idiot u are. ITS A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME TO COME ON HERE AND SAY WHAT U DID. Everyone here already knows way too much about HIMX and that u are garbage.

    I'll tell u what, to me this has HIMX written all over it. It looks like two of their major technologies: their 3D chip and their pico-projector type stuff.

    It might have something to do with this

    Something most of u probably don't know is HIMX had developed a 3D chip that converts 2D images into 3D images. They were touting it 2 years ago. And of course it displays 3D that was produced in 3D. I WONDER IF HIMX's 3D CHIP HAS ANY ROLE IN THIS MAGIC LEAP STUFF. Apparently, this went nowhere and died. HTC back then came out with something not nearly as good which was advertised for a few months. Looks like it didn't go over too well. Some reviewer said he went in skeptical and tried one of these things (I believe made by HIMX) and said he was surprised.

    However, at first sometimes I can't wrap my head around what good is a lot of this new stuff. I'm sure some very important uses for this Magic Leap can be found, but right now to me it looks like a toy or a novelty. Someone declared Bell's telephone a toy when he showed it off.

    There seems to be some group who just hate HIMX for some reason. Every time they come out with earnings predictions that prove to be ridiculously below reality. I bought HIMX at $0.96 back in 2012 and held thru most of 2013 and something very odd was happening back then. I complained to the SEC. Have no idea if that did anything.

  • If so what would be the need for such significant expansion of space?

    I remember HIMX uses several fab suppliers. If what Jay is saying is true about one of HIMX's fab suppliers dedicating so much production for AAPL this is a dangerous thing for them to be doing, IMO. More than one company has played with AAPL and has gotten burned! The most recent example we all know about is GTAT. GTAT's claim is AAPL started making unreasonable demands. We'll have to wait and see if this is true, but AAPL is a pig and a bully. I sure hope Jay doesn't have any influence on what these companies should do because he would be leading them down a dangerous path. Clearly his stock prediction record the last 6 to 8 months couldn't be more wrong.

    Its probably been mentioned before, but these gg type things seem like the best solution for viewing a car backup camera because your eyes are diverted the very least distance. U don't have to look at the dashboard etc. As for me, my eyesight has some problems and I've noticed that I can see better in front of me by looking at video screen. This will probably be the future of GPS also. If one is using an endoscope to look inside things without taking them apart these would free one hand that otherwise has to hold the video screen part.

    I wonder if that was directed at me since my comments often stem from a view that is in direct conflict with prevailing view of most who frequent yahoo finance. If not I need not go on my usual tirade, rant, lecture (whatever) on why free-market capitalism is an abject failure. Actually, though now I'm hearing the US economy has a much better future than anywhere else in the World. I never attribute any economic success to any pres; although, some have made some colossal blunders like invading Iraq for no valid reason.

    As to my investments I should be very pleased: I just sold most of my shares of HIMX last week and made 51% on them in maybe 3 months. The few 100 shares I have left are the only stocks I own right now. Two reasons I don't like FMC are that it is very unfair and unjust to the little people at the bottom and its bad for the environment.

    I am a cheater myself. One would have to say I'm the very definition of a pure capitalist pig. I make my living off of stock investing and I make money by not doing a thing to help anyone else. I could talk about my alternative co-op economic system, but most people can't handle dealing with things they're not already familiar with. Cosequently, I guess the US will just muddle along and look like Brazil or some Third World country with the very rich and desperately poor living in shacks. To some I guess that's the definition of a prosperous country.

    I should write a book and this is off topic, but so what. Ain't I awful? Final note: I suggest watching some of Milton Friedman's (the oracle, god, guru of FMC) presentations and count how many times he uses the word 'freedom'. His message is supposed to be promoting FMC, but it was/is 'freedom' that made America great. He uses some other countries as examples and this word applies there too, but many of his examples aren't valid anymore anyway.

    That's exactly what this Mr Black was talking about on Bill Moyers: the fact that NO bank execs have gone to jail! They put 1000s in jail from the savings and loan scandal. It still could happen that a lot of them will go to jail. I remember years ago reading in "Time" magazine about Mexico having the fastest growing population in the World. I knew that someday that this will probably cause us problems. This liberalism seems to have morphed into an attitude that we are supposed to be a charity org to the World. We need to take care of our own problems and fix our own budget deficits and quit meddling everywhere else.

    Some of this stuff I just didn't know. I had heard accounts where the Fed Reserve was threatening to not allow a bank or two in AZ to borrow money unless they lent more money to minorities. It might have been a good idea to audit some banks anyway. I still have an account at PNC bank and I don't think they participated in any of this. I could be wrong. I see a most of these problems as a result of these banks structuring these loans knowing they would fail. Of course, there's how they packaged bundles of loans afterwards and resold them. And then there's Fanny and Freddie. The head of one of them raked in millions for himself.

    Some criticize Clinton's NAFTA deal. I just don't get it; I've never been impressed in the slightest by any of these silver tonged devils. It seems people actually swooned when Reagan spoke. I don't get it. No, I don't think the banks were forced to go along; they just could go on with their business without fed funds. But, of course that would probably leave them at a competitive disadvantage.

    What a load of CR%#$P! The gov't never forced the banks to make these loans. Rather than give details I encourage u to watch the last Bill Moyers PBS interview with a Mr Black who wrote the book:"The Best Way to Rob a Bank Is To Own One". He was once a bank regulator. Actually Eric Holder should be behind bars, but this thing started under Bush. Geitner was chosen for his job because he was the worst bank regulator in the field.

    This country stinks to its core. BO's first priority should have been jobs for the citizens. He did make some effort in badly needed infrastructure areas, but ran into resistance from the GOP. He should be pounding the table. This QE stuff IMO did almost nothing but help the ones at the top. Guess what, China is now the biggest economy in the World and how did they do it? By old fashioned manufacturing, not selling insurance or banking or whatever other manipulation. The question is not what do we buy from China, but what don't we buy. Yeah, we want the gov't to keep its hands off business and what do the CEOs do? Sell out America for their own gain! No foreign country destroyed America; America did it to itself.

    Another example I find interesting: There's supposed to be a case coming up in Georgia where they turned the probation monitoring over to a private contractor and what are they doing? Stretching out the time requirements for those on probation so they can charge more money.

    I don't know. Probably not. I still have 400 shares.

  • discountbrains discountbrains Oct 10, 2014 10:33 AM Flag

    I've said on this board before to use stop limit orders. That way u will get nothing lower than the price u put in. Otherwise, the stock might fall another 2 points after your order becomes a market order. U take a risk by doing this too that the price will fall past your order and not come back. I'm not sure though; it seems like if a stock is falling and your price is in the way it has to hit your order and it has to execute.

    Huh? I can't decipher your incoherent babbling. Who is Salim anyway or what does that mean? I see u need to be on ignore.

  • I'm curious how much is bright enough and how much is too bright? As for battery life there is no limit; the longer the better. Like said before there are an awfully lot of 'ifs' with EMAN. Right now they're not delivering anything they are promising.
