  • According to yahoo PE is 19. They look at 2014 earnings of 39c. Even if you look at the estimated average EPS for 2015 which is 44c, you get a PE of 17.

    Until HIMX delivers strong earnings the SP will be trading in the range of $6.50 - $9.00 .

    Sentiment: Hold

    The real question is how many shares they bought or they will buy after QUIK's last dreadful and depressing CC? Buying shares at $2.95 "during" last quarter shows that they were hopeful for some good news, like many of us, only to be disappointed once more.

    I am not steelingmoney and I do not claim to be wise.

    I am not sure I agree on any of the 3 points. Andy was very negative, perhaps the most negative in last 2-3 years I have been following stock.
    1) revenue prospect for sensor hubs was dismal. Revenue from display bridges very tough due to tablet market going south...
    2) overemphasized that new revenue will not exceed 2014 new revenue as he had said before....
    3) that was a suggestion/question by an analyst... he almost put his words in their mouth, and both QUIK execs gave a very NOT convincing answer...how they can be profitable if their prospects is so negative ? They have no clue. They are just guessing.

    A year ago some SA writer said that the SP should be $1.88, Most of us thought he was just another short, but he was absolutely right. Actually it should much less than $1.88.

    Thoughts on earnings?

    Will be happy if they meet the $5.4 mil for Q4 and guide a bit higher for Q1, around $6 mil. Then in early May perhaps they may guide to $10 mil for Q2, as was suggested by an analyst recently....We may see SP around $4 if all that comes to fruition. Hopeful but not thoroughly convinced.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Q4 results would be on March. Tomorrow, Jan 28, is just a CC for 2015 business growth and revenue outlook. Now think, what company would schedule a CC to talk about business revenue for 2015, if it was not good and positive ? Expect a positive revenue outlook along with perhaps some new customer(s).

    Stock is going up because of shorts covering...and they cover for a reason...

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    260% jump would take it from $3 on Dec 20, to $3 x 3.6 = $10.80
    100% jump is double $3 x 2 = $6
    200% jump is triple $3 x 3 = $9
    260% jump is 3.6 times, $3 x 3.6 = $10.80

    $8 is not bad, but I would take the $10.80

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Tokyo to spend $385 million on Hydrogen

    Article points out that Japan has shut down all nuclear reactors...Tokyo is moving to Hydrogen big time...Whole country will be moving to Hydrogen soon...Great opportunity for FCEL. Even if they do not get any contracts, Japan's move shows that Fuel Cell technology is getting traction...

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Tokyo plans to spend 45.2 billion yen ($385 million) on fuel-cell vehicle subsidies and hydrogen stations for the 2020 Olympics as part of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s plan to reduce Japan’s reliance on nuclear power.

    Japan’s capital will build 35 stations to fuel hydrogen-based FCVs and is in negotiations with Toyota Motor Corp. (7203) and Honda Motor Co. (7267) to put 6,000 hydrogen cars on its roads by 2020, said Makoto Fujimoto, who heads the planning team at the metropolitan government’s energy department.

    Japan is putting resources into hydrogen power after suffering its worst nuclear disaster since World War II in March 2011, when an earthquake and tsunami damaged the Fukushima Daiichi power plant. Spending on hydrogen infrastructure comes as Tokyo’s government is under pressure to rein in costs as it prepares to host the quadrennial games.

    “The Olympics are a good opportunity to showcase new technologies,” said Hiroshi Takahashi, a research fellow at Fujitsu Research Institute. “It’s also a significant chance to attract new investment and update the city’s transportation system to make it fuel-cell friendly.”

    Last week, Toyota delivered its first Mirai fuel-cell model to Abe. After a short test drive at his official residence, Abe declared it was “very comfortable” and said he wants “all ministries and agencies to have” the Mirai.

    “It’s time to introduce a hydrogen era,” he told reporters on Jan. 15.

    Nuclear Meltdown

    The country is paying 10 billion yen a day to buy natural gas after the reactor meltdown forced the shutdown of all of its nuclear plants, Fujimoto said.

    Under the Tokyo Metropolitan Government’s plan, the city is targeting to have 100,000 hydrogen passenger vehicles, 100 hydrogen buses and 80 refueling stations by 2025.

    Because we are not t back to that point yet...SP dropped to below $10 then...Check Historical prices./adjusted price in yahoo finace and you will see SP closed at $9.84 on Nov 20, 2008...
    We have not seen real panic yet, companies cutting production, down grades, mergers, companies going out of business...when we see that, then we will have a bottom. Oil companies have just started announcing cuts in March/April, reducing rigs in Mar/Apr..etc...so we are getting there, but not sure if we reached bottom...Will STO go down to $9.84 ? Don't know for sure, but trying to catch a falling knife is very dangerous....

    When you short you do not buy or pay, you borrow the shares and sell, so if you short 1,000 shares at $50, you are account is credited $50,000, Later you have to cover, buy the 1,000 shares so you can return the 1000 shares you borrowed/sold...When you cover at $10, you buy shares and this time you pay, $10,000. Whole transaction gives you net profit of $40,000.
    Go to web and do some research. I hope you figure it out.

    If you cover 1,000 short shares at $10 that will cost you $10,000.
    You shorted/sold/borrowed 1,000 shares at $50, that is $50,000...Your profit is $40,000, which is 400% profit.

    It is the equivalent of buying 1,000 shares at $10 and selling at $50.

    You are not very bright, and your language shows beyond any doubt the kind of person you are. I could have called you many names, but I refuse to.. So, have a nice day , go think about what you say, and next time watch your mouth.

    Apparently you don't... You borrow the stock at $50 and sold it, and then when it was $10 you bought it to cover your short position. That's a profit of of %400 .
    Do the math...

    On Nov 26 the SP was $25. I suspect there were a lot more shorts between Nov 28 and yesterday.
    Some of them covered to get a 70% profit realized in less than 2 weeks.
    Also think how many of the existing shorts on Nov 28, shorted back in the summer when price was $50...Looks like many shorts covered to take a 400% profit ...
    Oil is going down and shale producers will be affected. In the process you would see SP jump for a day or two, but the general trend would be down, till oil hits a bottom.
    Another possibility may be OAS is trying to sell itself. May be some news have leaked out. Long shot, but some of the shale players will be selling soon...

  • dtpolis by dtpolis Dec 12, 2014 3:03 PM Flag

    If SP was $21 when Brent was $83, then $16 when Brent is $63, if Brent gets do $43 expect SP of around $12 or even less. The bad thing is Shale production cuts will not take effect till April 2015 or later, so expect more production from shale in next 3-4 months...
