You have referred to engineers, scientists in Taiwan a couple of times. Do you imply that himx is tapping into a pool of advanced engineering outside of the company for early development?
to step up to the plate. Short interest has increased by 800,000 shares. The stock has been range bound for weeks and is at bottom of range right now. Good time to burn some shorts. Time to bring some of those shares back into the treasury- NOW! Wake Up.
Hedge funds buy and sell all the time. Dumping is about as far from what is happening here as you calling yesterday a sell day. The deceptive monkey article is a hatchet job to scare retail investors based a one sided view.
Adding example to what guns and capt said below about the pure attempt at manipulation. According to article connective Cap dropped biggest stake of $.9m which equates to 113,267 shares of stock. On the other side of the equation, Hood River Cap purchased 1,650,056 shares or a stake of $ 12.7m. Small omission there mr insider monkey.
It's possible that one of the analysts figured out with Black Fri right around the corner that people may buy iphones for christmas.
Really? How can you be right when the stock finished up yesterday? Did you count the number of buys yesterday to the number of sells?
The stock ran pretty good on Baird greetings. I expected much more than what the stock got from MS. Not over til the fat lady sings but the stock may retest the tiny gap or lower before it takes off.
Crus rated second out of 5 in hf activity which was not bad in that article even though pretty far behind terp in hf $ value. The thing that interested me though was that the change in hf in terp was minus 15 while crus was plus 5 indicating GROWTH for CRUS.
Common for a stock to pull back and it seemed that amigo wrote that piece in support of buying on those pullbacks. I see what you're saying though as I did not catch critter's meaning in that insiders probably sold the news. However that may have been done early when the stock hit 7.55. Might have been good time to BUY at 7.55. Time will tell.
Sounds like you got caught on the wrong side of the trade. How do you go from strongly bullish to moping bear in one day?
Himax +4.8%; Morgan Stanley launches coverage, talks up AR/VR potential
Nov 23 2015, 12:29 ET | About: Himax Technologies, Inc. (HIMX) | By: Eric Jhonsa, SA News Editor [Contact this editor with comments or a news tip]
"Given the segment's momentum, we believe 2016 will be an inflection point for [augmented reality] smart glasses," writes Morgan Stanley's Charlie Chan, launching coverage on Himax (NASDAQ:HIMX) with an Overweight rating and $8.50 target.
Chan declares Himax, which supplies LCoS microdisplays for Google Glass and is believed by some analysts to have a supply deal for Microsoft's HoloLens, well-positioned to benefit AR/VR headset adoption. He also expects the recent launch of OLED driver and TDDI (integrated touch controller/display driver) ICs to strengthen Himax's display driver business.
The coverage comes two weeks after Baird started Himax at Outperform, shortly following the company's Q3 report.
Broker recommendations -– love them or hate them, they do have their place. And we all look at them eventually.re a small individual investor or a large institutional portfolio manager (or somewhere in between), who doesn't like it when a stock gets an upgraded rating or sees a new analyst jumping in with coverage? We all do. (Although I should note that, in general, the change in the average broker recommendation is a better indicator than the actual recommendation itself.) Anyway, today I want to talk about companies that receive new analyst coverage. One of the things that generates analyst coverage is investor interest. How else can you explain the increased analyst coverage for Facebook (a company that's only been public for 2 1/2 yrs.) in comparison to a company like GE (public for more than 40 yrs.)? And as new coverage is initiated, it becomes more visible, which in turn means potentially more demand (read higher prices). This is often the case because analysts almost always initiate coverage with a positive recommendation. (Why write a research report on a company not widely followed only to say it stinks?) And when it comes to companies with little to no analyst coverage, that one new recommendation can sometimes give portfolio managers the validation they need to build a position. (And the more money they can invest, the more they can potentially influence prices.) The best way to use this information is to look for companies with analyst coverage that has increased over the last 4 weeks. Simply look at the number of analyst recommendations now in comparison to the number of analyst recommendations 4 weeks ago. An increase in coverage is bu

First let me say that the last couple of chart patterns have not fared very well for this stock. In any event there is a symmetrical triangle(continuation) that formed off the june run up of the weekly chart. The breakout on the descending line at this point is around $7.60 with a price target over $10. Bulkowski's tests show a 66% success rate for meeting price target. It would help if the potential breakout is on relatively high volume, "Edwards and Magee suggest that roughly 75% of symmetrical triangles are continuation patterns and the rest mark reversals. "
Thanks for spelling out that touch controllers incl driver display. I needed to have that reinforced in my mind. I also missed a pretty important lead statement to the pr the first time I read the pr. Preparing for potential MASS PRODUCTION.
the first 2 of 3 candlesticks has formed for morning star and has been showing all week. The culmination would be a move into 30'2 next week. Bulkowski says usually a 78% chance of success. OPex have possibly inlenced the trade this week although just a guess. The trade jumping up 10 cents back to zero then repeat has been wierd today.
