Let's see. A great reiteration this morning by baird plus a great article and the shorts are still able to strongarm. What the f?
Tristan is the analyst that kicked the whole thing off a few months ago. The rest will follow.
Baird analyst, Tristan Gerra, reiterated his Outperform rating on Himax Technologies (NASDAQ: HIMX) on multiple new revenue layer opportunities supported by a rising count of new engagements and design wins. Rush orders from China smartphone OEMs suggest ASP strength and potential upside this quarter, while AR revenue 2016 outlook has risen from a quarter ago. TTDI/Force Touch, AMOLED driver ICs will be incremental to revenue this second half, with 3D sensing and HUD kicking in 2017.
Rush orders from China smartphone OEMs suggest ASP strength are also likely to positively contribute to Himax's small panel business this quarter. The ramp of full HD resolution screens in smartphones remains a growth driver for this year.
No change to $12 PT.
Shares of Himax Technologies closed at $9.22 yesterday.

In a low-rate world, high-dividend stocks have become an increasingly attractive option. And contrary to those who argue that many dividend payers have become overvalued and are due for a drop, Jeremy Siegel says the rush to dividend names is just beginning. rest on cnbc
I agree but the last trade at 4pm was large at 154k, 9.30 down couple pennies. So the question is if it really was a sell as it appears.
The only thing that I can think of is these are shares left open by mm. I would think that the mm would short more than that.
The ssv site that you mention is based on finra. You can go *directly to regshofinra and get daily results which should be more reliable.They are commissioned by congress (not positive about that) to gather this data. There is a column entitled exempt volume usually less than 5,000. If you check it out please let me know if you know exempt from what.
nice run on earnings and then got jerked around after dividend. I really don't see much of anything other than the obvious. What do you see?
This could be construed as profane but I would like to see the stock continue forming a bottom over 9 at least to memorial day and maybe the rest of that week. That would be the foundation for a good rally. I could see this as the bottom of a potential cup and handle with the handle forming around 10 1/2 and downward for last shakeout prior to breaking thru 12.
I've noticed that bachus often mysteriously disappeared just before and during during stock declines. Superior knowledge about the company but I always thought that he may have had connections with a trading group.
Above and beyond normal zacks recommendation. My guess they must have recived a little nudge. Maybe the start of concerted effort on part of the longs.
Thanks for the ir info that you have provided. It seems that if analyst have already issued updated notes and reports that something to that effect would be made public.
I am not against himax using div money for product build but I like mr Wu's attitude about the building project. Place the risk and onus squarely on the shoulders of the customers. That is confidence. Give him the commitment and he will build. what's wrong with that?
I don't know what you are looking at but the buy side of level 2 is growing quite large at this moment.
