Incorrect, you can deduct 100% to the extent they offset any other capital gains for the year. They are applied first based on the category. Short term losses against short term gains. Once short term gains are offset, any remaining would be offset against long term. And the flip if they were long term. Yes 3k total loss deductible with the balance carried over after offsetting..
LOL Amigo... Aint it the truth... Had to sell some of my equities to bring home $$ to pay taxes... Sure enough. One of the ones I sold Is up 15% since I sold it on Monday.... Although this time there is also one that has tanked 10% since then....
I am thinking along your lines amigo, but confirmation is the key... It is still conjecture we are in hololens.... Himax has now gone through two cycles where the price was driven up anticipating realeases to market. First crashed in March 2014, second peaked sept when it was obvious none of the new offerings made it into last years new crop of devices. Each quarter now we seem to slowly float up in anticipation of guidance then the share price goes back to the 6's when there is confirmation that is is yet again "down the road"..
"I am worried that even just mentioning Hololens include LCoS and/or WLO in a general spec run-down is going to recreate the same frenzy we saw last year and benefit the shorts at the expense of longs"
Not sure I follow you...I get a mention (no confirmation) will bring the frenzied short term action, like past events. What I don't understand is how it would benefit the shorts at the expense of longs. At the expense of momentum traders maybe. As the price rises and they dive in for short term trades, then the shorting cycle begins....
Long is long. Monitor the stock, but the short term swings (on no relevant info) don't impact the time frame expectation of the share price. As that time frame draws near, then activities like you mention play a larger role. Or you adjust your timeframe. Mine was originally early 2016. The delays to market have given me pause and I moved my timeframe to Y/e 2016.
The products are there. There is new tech. but when you miss a new product cycle (annual cell handsets for example) you wait another year to get in the next model. Danger there is time is given to competitors.
Agreed.. This stock behaved opposite of what was expected given rates the last 3 months. Now that the earnings season is on us. The chains have been released.
anoyma, Don't think it will reveal anything. It will create a buzz and some ups and down in the price. We won't see any appreciable help in the share price until forward guidance shows the expected growth. Until then, this is a roller coaster.
Even if Hololens was announced as going into production, it would still not stop the question " are we in it?" Either a teardown or expected eps growth will show it to the market. We have a while to wait.
Along with the other reasons given, you also have the instant gratification factor most investors have. No patience is the trademark of most individual investors. 1-2 months for most is an "investment".... Positioning is a thing of the past..
"NRZ is the sleeper.... recently raised the dividend. Closed on a deal that could add ~30-40% earnings/year"... Closed at 14.57 that day.... When the dividends going forward are established, This will trade for 9.5-10.5% yield. At the least, $4 more from today's close to go... Pay's 1.52 annually now. Should go to minimum of $2.00
If you are going to keep repeating this, how about putting it in context.... The doubling in revenue was for optics sensors and LCoS sales which are both miniscule sales at this point...
