Average market return is ~8%, so a 10-30% gain in a year is not worth it. Thanks for enlightening me...
Let's put it this way....
5 clicks away to get an approximate ex date. (Clue 1- HIMX investor page. Clue 2 you can get there from the "company profile link" on the yahoo summary page)
Second, do not expect an early announcement like last year. With the div expected to drop based on 2015 eps, releasing early with a substantially lower dividend is not the news we want to hear right now.
The whole thing was overblown... Easy enough to sift through the financials and get the real story. How the books are prepared in between the Rev and Net Profit is irrelevant unless you want to make an issue out of it to drive the stock price down.. Cash flow and EBITDA tell the story.
Oh well, I'm thankful for it. Provided a nice entry....
You see that other A/R V/R play starting to move? You in there or simply mess with Frankie there?
Our foundry player seems to be doing nicely.... Nice institutional bond placement.
Third one I thought I saw you on.. ASUS smartphone win....
Agree, excellent point. Window dressing. People will be looking to see if A/R V/R are covered in their portfolios and fund managers will be talking that up. And the div is a bonus.
Fidelity has the "Starmine" equity summary scores. Fairly automated rating system for stocks. 1 the low 10 the high. Never pay much attention to them. HIMX has been a .8 (yes POINT 8) for the last 9 months or so...Hmmmm moved to 5.8 this month...
About the only thing the system seems to be good for is when to sell. When an equity gets above 8.5 or so... time to start selling.
Think about what you just said....The only reason you hold is for longer term gains or to wait out a rough patch (held and accumulated since 2011). If there are longer term gains to be had, Why not buy?
Surprised with your constant "Buy was between 5.5 (it never hit that price, at least change it to 5.65 it touched that for a millisecond) and 7.00" , that you would still hold any shares. By your own writing, the run is over. Move along nothing to see here.The dividend here is not worth simply holding for that..
Of course nothing is a "run to infinity". You were saying 10 by Q2 earnings would never happen in October.
Exactly why do you own this stock? .
Simple word for it... Collusion. events like earnings day do not happen without co-operation... Oh well... t'was a good chance to add... This is a long term play...
I understand your sentiment.... the SEC does as well, They are about worthless
You keep saying that... You said it was not a buy at 7, at 8, and at 9. Exactly when do you buy? While the market is a short term animal, investing is a long term gain.
If it is not a buy here, why do you still hold any shares? That seems counter-intuitive...
Xwallstcfo, a change to quarterly would be a help in taking out the volatility HIMX has on a regular basis. But, at .30/sh, doubt many are in this for the dividend... Couple issues that would crop up if they went Quarterly.
Div based on prior year income to maximize the tax savings. So how do you set the quarterly dividend. HIMX does not provide 12 months worth of guidance to base a forward dividend on. Could create even more volatility based on an implied 12 months guidance.
And as Amigo pointed out, why give up $.04 in fees per year when you only have to pay .01.
FSUS, they receive a break on their taxes in Taiwan for the dividend total payout for the year. # of payments made does not matter. They get taxed hard if no dividend.
