Stim, the more they change, the more they stay the same.
And you are correct, this deal does not "insure" anything. Dot the I's cross the T's. There are more than likely escape clauses on both sides (In this case I would expect the monetary impact of the clauses are minimal)
Would be interesting to have Maglan's update on the short shares about now...
Stim, we hope it is the last chance.. I did add today at 2.11. Only thing I am wondering currently: GSAT defended the share price by buying in November at the 2.5x-2.8x range. If it was good then, I do hope they take advantage of the recent price levels
Sal, this is not new info. Makes a difference. The subject line was from A PDF dated 04-2015. The positions were initiated in Q1 2015. Posting in this manner without "the rest of the story" makes it seem as if this happened recently (since the chardan downgrade)
Hal, Agree, big difference in "conspiracy" and what we see here. If you have enough money, you can move the share price...
gseyh, the "sentiment" that is being portrayed is "bearish" despite the large increase in forecasted cap-ex and recent hiring of "production techs".
The buyers that count are staying on the sidelines until those factors (above) start to make a contribution. They were bitten once (2014) they are not going to do the same thing a second time.. The big money will not move until the Growth projected by Wu can be confirmed. And HIMX will not do that currently.
I'll add: Lincoln, your last 3 sentences are the key. The shares that are being recycled are the same shares. Shaken loose continuously. Take away the employee owned shares and this has turned several times this year.
Until future guidance supports the expected growth, every opportunity around earnings time is being used to recycle those shares. Lowballed estimates are being used to drag the consensus down to the level which supports the fud. C'mon Jay... $4 Low estimate for 2015 is $.24. For 2016, $.29.
Problem is, as quiet as the company is, you never know if there will be any news... So the best course of action is to set your time frame and sit tight...
At this point, I am expecting another foray into the 5's. Keeping me from buying. That money is elsewhere waiting patiently.
Both are in play. Would be nice if they reported progress against the incentive goals. Along with estimates (or disclaimers) regarding timeframe. A simple % compared to target would suffice.
