    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...

    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/ 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...

    QUIK Articlink in new phone

    by regeist Dec 1, 2014 10:40 PM
    dtpolis dtpolis Dec 4, 2014 5:59 AM Flag


    From QUIK's blog, Saygus uses the display, not the sensor hub.

    A long-time QuickLogic follower posted the following question to the blog today:

    Hi Paul:

    There’s some PR floating around the internet regarding a new Saygus V2 Android based Smartphone that has won a prestigious CES innovation award. My question is regarding it’s reported use of an ArcticLink III from QuickLogic as a co-processor that “loads” contextual information. My understanding was (or is) that the ArcticLink 3 S2 is QUIKs ArcticLink III BX/VX visual enhancement product. Also, that the ArcticLink 3 S2 is QuickLogic’s Sensor Hub.

    Can you provides some clarification for investors:

    (1) Is QUIK providing one or more products for this new phone?

    (2) Is one of those the ArcticLink 3 S2 Sensor Hub? If so, will the Saygus V2 Smartphone also be using QuickLogic’s new internally developed Sensor Algorithms to supply Context Aware information?

    (3) Has the Saygus V2 Smartphone been referred to in either of QuickLogic’s last two quarterly prepared remarks, i.e. Q2-14 or Q3-14?

    So, in response…

    We can confirm that Saygus phone in question does use the ArcticLink III VX (display) product from QuickLogic. The article is incorrect in stating which product from QuickLogic is used — to be clear, this is a display product (only), and not a sensor hub. Finally, this design has not been referred in any of the 2014 prepared remarks.

    Shale Producers at $42/bbl return cash

    by financefrau Nov 30, 2014 9:00 PM
    dtpolis dtpolis Dec 2, 2014 8:19 AM Flag

    CNBC had a nice segment presented by Michelle Carusso Cabrera indicating that according to several analysts the shale oil is profitable in a range of $45 - $80/ bbl. It all depends on well, cost to drill it, flow of well, cost to maintain it, etc.... So, it is not an exact science...

  • LSCC has about $200 mil cash, no debt, a slew of FPGAs, several Chinese companies they do business with and very little sensor hub development. LSCC indicated that they may use cash to buy another company...Although QUIK , on their web site, claim to do certain things better and faster than LSCC, it appears that a combined company of the two, may do better.
    Last EE article happened to mention them both together....
    Any thoughts ?

    Sentiment: Hold

  • dtpolis dtpolis Nov 19, 2014 10:22 AM Flag

    The EPS consensus was $0.111 and company met it.
    Din't Shuli say in original report that HIMX earned $0.111 and they missed the target of $0.11 ?
    Pure stupidity... does not even know that 0.111 is bigger than 0,11...
    Now they realize they made a mistake , and come up with Bloomberg data od $0.123 ? I guess you can find some site with different numbers to support your case..

    Sentiment: Buy

  • That's about 60% upside....

  • Craig Hallum Reiterates “Buy” Rating for Himax Technologies, Inc. (HIMX)
    November 17th, 2014 - 0 comments - Filed Under - by Matt Cooper

    Himax Technologies, Inc. (ADR) logoCraig Hallum reiterated their buy rating on shares of Himax Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ:HIMX) in a research note released on Thursday morning. They currently have a $9.00 target price on the stock.

    Several other analysts have also recently commented on the stock. Analysts at Chardan Capital reiterated a sell rating on shares of Himax Technologies, Inc. in a research note on Thursday. Finally, analysts at Oppenheimer reiterated a buy rating on shares of Himax Technologies, Inc. in a research note on Wednesday, October 8th. They now have a $12.00 price target on the stock, up previously from $8.50. One investment analyst has rated the stock with a sell rating, one has issued a hold rating and eight have given a buy rating to the company’s stock. Himax Technologies, Inc. currently has an average rating of Buy and a consensus price target of $12.34.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • In CC AP gave 4th Q guidance of $5.3 mil and indicated the slight increase in revenue (from the $4.1 mil rev in Q2) was due to Samsung increased demand for QUIK's display bridge....So it is quite obvious and logical to conclude that the $5.3 mil includes the revenue from the camera contract...The announcement is simply adding more detail to his CC comments.

    The fact that QUIK gave a guidance of $5.3 mil for Q4 is positive, but I would not view the camera contract announcement as something on top of the $5.3 mil is already baked in.

    Again, small progress, but no major sensor hub contracts so far. Hope that happens soon.

    Sentiment: Hold
