Will be interesting. You can bet there are analysts at the firms covering GTAT working the weekend trying to model the information TG gave on Friday.
That was a masterful presentation... Enough information provided to leave everyone wanting more.

Northland Capital Markets analyst Tom Sepenzis reiterated an Outperform rating and $20 price target on Himax Technologies (NASDAQ: HIMX) while ...
Added 6k more here. Wasted a couple bucks a share waiting for a pullback. long term well worth it.
Thank you to Mungee Cali and others. Great resources on this message board.
Yes, that is how analysts play the game. However, using your same rational and reasoning (Sounds like you are almost calling it dead money currently) one would have missed the ~quintuple in price over the last year.
The theories posted on the board have been from reasonably acute individuals. So far, their track record has crushed the professionals. The discussions are not confrontational unless one makes them so. No one theory is 100% correct. If certain posters would put their ego's aside and learn not to contradict almost everything these "unprofessionals" say, There could be more $$ to be made.
Currenlty, the forward information is good enough that the share price has exceeded the "one year" expectations consistantly. The analysts are almost being forced to issue updates to their price targets due to the continued price strength and stream of positive developments.
Not something I would want to be on the wrong side of right now.
One of the best sumations of how it feels to own a stock like this that I have read. All boiled down to a single word. Scoreboard! Congrats to all who have stayed with this. The next few years will be interesting.
HUGE run in Dec. All those tutes are happy. MM"s Play with it for a while, end March with a gain. Tutes still happy, MM has made his money.
HIMX has entered the "show me the money" phase. This will run into earnings. If they "cover" their projections (11% yoy earnings growth) . Personally, I see no problem covering the projection. Then it is about Q2 projection.... How do they grow from ~.38 eps to .6X earnings ( I still Think .85)... Another lackluster trading period and BAM, the next leg up.
This is a once in a lifetime stock for most people. Retirements are made of this. Happy trading and best wishes.
Disagree. A lot of the "news" that is out has been pieced together by individuals. Some published on SA. Most of it is opinion on what is happening (with sound reasoning) Anytime you get "confirmation" from the company it is an event. Good or bad depending on what was expected to be said.
From your posts on the google board, this type of FUD should be expected from you. HIMX is MUCH more than simply glass. Tthe investment from google is simply icing on the cake.
Do yourself a favor and invest here... Min 23.75 by year end is a pretty healthy uptick...
And a counter from Northland this morning:
"HIMX Technologies recent sell-off a buying opportunity, says Northland"
Opportunity knocks, Answer the door. Don't quibble over a few pennies when the price is what you want. Free money is good. I use that strategy as well. Lost many dollars trying to get the "price" I wanted. Learned and moved on. Take what you know is good.
Call, I expect 2-2.50 in share price appreciation in the next 6-8 week. Hence the timing and buying of my scalp shares. The core will ride as always (though I am looking to sell some HIMX in the IRA and re-balance with GTAT)
Anyone who completely get's out of this stock in the next 2-3 years will be shooting themselves in the foot.
They will get there. I just know how difficult it can be to pass a Gov't first article test. Once you prove reliability, gold mine. Enjoyed that as well...
I still cannot understand why people JUMP on anyone who implies there could be a pullback. Up 20% in 2 days. Yep, It will keep going straight up.
Guaranteed there was a fresh wave of shorts after the last 2 days. I have no idea if they will be right or wrong. But there is always consolidation at higher levels. Been in this stock for a long time. I am a firm believer in the potential 18-24 months out.
Everyone has their own specific trading patterns. What they are comfortable with. Rather than simply bashing, read their opinions, file them away and make your own decision.
I am still accumulating, but take the opportunity to lock some profits, and hopefully buy back in for a re-trace. I have my shares that are off limits to trading (core). Did that yesterday with shares bought on the margin. Advised my father to do the same. We have a buy back point and we both still have substantial holdings.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Negligible at best in the overall scheme of things... For those that are long time holders, the gathering of more and more data, combined with individual analysis (shared with rational) and even opinions help to better formulate our own thoughts. Both negative and positive.
There will always be those that lash out at anything said that is not 100% the same opinion as the individual lashing out. Take these consolidation periods. Point them out and what you expect to happen, WOW look out. Listen and make money. 6 figures last year just on scalp share trades during these periods. As Hasch likes to point out, it is "gut", but educated by watching the patterns of the particular stock.
Still long but I will not become a hog....
Sentiment: Strong Buy
