    Get off this board form1. Take you're stupidity somewhere else. Why is there such narrow focus on picture taking. The way people are now walking around staring at their smartphones this is a very good alternative. This idea WILL catch on.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • How could anyone believe these Vuzix glasses could be any competition to GGs? A lot of people already think GGs are creepy enough. Take a look at: vuzix consumer/products_m100/. Who would want that big gob of garbage right in front of their eye? If I were Lenovo I'd be ashamed to introduce that in any market. And, the whole thing is way too bulky. This will be a huge flop.

    I put a price target of $150 on HIMX. I would say $300, but HIMX might never be a household name like Netflix. I see this because too many times I've seen investors get way out of control beyond imagination. This is no more fanciful than someone predicting $4/sh.

    I don't know what you're talking about. I was referring to sbaccus's post comparing HIMX's LCOS to Kopin's device made today. And, who cares if GG ever makes it to market? At least its gotten a lot of other companies interested in this concept.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • This HIMX LCOS can be twice as bright with a lot of other features!! There is no mention of how much this Kopin costs either. The HIMX LCOS has all the features needed for head mounted displays: See Sbaccus's post. We know many others are coming out with these GG type products; HIMX will be the industry standard supplier of the key component! How can anyone lose sight of this fact?

    What broker are all of u showing up here with the neg comments working for?

  • I came back in 2 months ago and bought a few 100 shares thinking more for the short term and not knowing what I was going to do with them. How does this Chardan say sales of large size and other displays are declining when I thought I read HIMX say they were growing? And, I just realized these wearable devices are going to be unstoppable observing almost everyone everywhere constantly looking at their smartphone even while walking!! People are absolutely addicted to these things. It seems HIMX's chips are essential for these devices. HIMX is a long term hold until at least 2015, 2016. Never underestimate the absurdity of the investor: look at the ridiculous price of Netflix now and many others. Who could have guessed they would ever reach these prices? I don't think it outrageous to imagine a price target for HIMX of $150.!

    Vuzix is using Lenovo or are they marketing two separate products??? Vuzix said it the new devices will be branded as "Vuzix 100 Smart Glasses powered by Lenovo."

    Its quite interesting that I give an opposing view that the US should be providing this 'iron dome' to the Palestinians also and my comment was censored! Our thoughts are being controlled in the US.

    It took this long for this Hayes news to come out? Very interesting. With or without GG for GOOG to take a stake in HIMX was a good decision. HIMX is a growing financially sound company. My thinking is GG is NOT going over real well. Now there is an ad on YouTube where u can purchase GG. I believe the reason for the explorer program and these ads is to test the market. I think someone said this was a solution searching for a problem. I often wondered that myself. That might also be said for those pico-projector chips. It sure would be nice if they could find a good application for these. I wonder if LCOS chips would work well in watches.

    Here again I disobeyed my trading rules and its become a disaster for my 700 shares. Last week I almost put in my sell order and could have made maybe $200.

    Its usually the case that I'm surprised a stock even pays a div after I bought it. I'm puzzled that if the stock is reduced in price by the amount of the div the next day why anyone would buy it for the div. After all one gains absolutely nothing. I think its more often the stock price stays the same, but they get a div in addition.

  • discountbrains by discountbrains Jul 8, 2014 11:18 AM Flag

    Why would anyone sell and not get a dividend??? This stock has very strange behavior. Has the date they close the books on the divi past? I assume that means u have to buy the stock by a certain date to be on record and have to hold through a later date to get the divi. Could few new buyers be the reason HIMX is tanking? I hope to hear HIMX has gotten great new business. Incidentally, FWIW twice I've seen an ad pop up on the internet already taking orders for GG.

  • unless I missed something in my skimming of the article. But, hey Burton, you dufus, we have already heard Samsung will slow down orders $10M to $14M. Yet, HIMX expects INCREASES of $10M in orders from other suppliers to China of similar products as Samsung. So, really there is no or little change in HIMX's total shipments.

    Putting the rumours to Rest

    Look, OLED is just way, way too expensive! Ran across this article the other day which I quote:

    "LG has once again slashed the price of its 55-inch OLED display.

    After already cutting the price just a few weeks ago, LG is offering another price reduction for its 55EA9800. The OLED TV will now retail for $3,999, a whopping 73 percent off of its original price. The television made its debut in July 2013 at $15,000, and has received several price adjustments over the last year. "

    Are u kidding me?

    I worry that Besos has put spyware on this Amazon phone! HOWEVER, I saw on TV it can display in real 3D. It might contain a HIMX 2D to 3D conversion chip. HIMX announced about this chip over 1 1/2 years ago and I have posted about it twice. No one seemed to follow up on my post or even notice it. I thought this was a BIG $#%&# deal! There could be numerous applications for this. It could be revolutionary! For example, people could take a virtual tour of a house as if they were actually there. About that time HTC came out with a 3D phone which must have been a joke and one of the major carriers was touting it for a couple months. That could have spoiled the whole notion of it. But, I guess it all depends on how good this is and if people like it. If Amazon is using this and others have to scramble to follow suite this would be "Caty bar the door!" for HIMX!

    Why GOOG will use OLED...

    You're just stupid. Do u work in any division of GOOG where u might know what they're doing? I didn't think so. So, shut up. I can install a new brain for u and really cheap.....Just got a new shipment in from China.

    NOT! I lived in both Colo. Springs and Reno. Both are over 6000 ft. I didn't notice so much in Reno, but the Sun is pretty intense in Colo. Springs. U can walk in the shade of a building and its chilly and when u come back into the Sun its hot. Some people complain they get easily sunburned. Imagine flying a plane at 30,000 ft. This is why the military wants OLED. At ground level its just not needed and unnecessarily expensive. Its extremely silly and stupid to suggest GOOG is using OLED! I watched a couple videos on YouTube and u can see how it looks through these glasses. It looked quite acceptable to me. Someone posted that they wore these around Europe. Ask them if this is an issue. In a review someone complained the sound was a little hard to hear in a noisy environment, but after many months there are no complaints about brightness.

    I have just now gotten interested in the design of these things and looked at Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus. Both are totally immersive goggles. I wear glasses and I wonder whether this stuff on one side would weigh down the glasses. Again I think they should be made more like those goggles I've seen a lot of old machinist toolmakers wear on their head or like sunglasses with wide temples with some of the electronics on both sides. Small wires could easily run through the top rim.

    Why don't u simply explain the connection. I know u didn't post this silly article about stupid Amazon. BTW their amazon prime is a huge scam. Serving the customer with everything they could possibly want has some merits, but there definitely could be some unwanted consequences of what amazon is doing.

    OK, first u are implying they can't. I'm just calling u on it. Clearly u don't have a clue. Its clear you're trying to create negativity. My sense has always been it has never been an issue with HIMX's role at all. Frankly, I think its because they really know its a dumb idea from the get-go and also that the gg are just too expensive.
