A little frustrating as long 200 March calls which expire tomorrow and stock cannot make that push through 18.After reading Bee-plus post have started buying some Jan 2016 calls- thanks Bee_plus.
O.T. Problems with IMOS message board has been almost as annoying as managements lack of action.
Trying to put together a meeting In Chicago as you know.Caff still has not responded to my last post as to whether he wants to attend or what dates work for him If he does.If you are In touch with him see If he could respond either way.Cheers.
Reason for spike this morning was someone bought over 2500 March 17 calls for .85 cents.Hope he Is right.They expire this Friday.quite a lottery ticket.Cheers
Good humor ! I think I will send S.J. An E-mail asking that exact question.After I receive the Immediate response we can plan for the future.Cheers.
As long as you are willing I only have one requirement for the weekend and that Is we have both you and Jaret In Attendence.If your daughters due date Is early June we could plan for late June or mid July.If later could try early June.Im very flexible. Just hope most of the original Vegas crew can make It as well as any other long time holders.Your thoughts ? Cheers
Trust me when I say I understand and agree concerning buyback/dividend picture.As Dave G. And I used to banter back and forth " Forest for the trees ".That being said I do not believe Managment has not acted In the best Interest of the IMOS shareholders concerning these Issues.Great operators of the business but PATHETIC at enhancing shareholder value.Remember this.They sold themselves a bunch of 8150 shares and my concern Is their values are not aligned with ours.If they were they would have Immediatly Initiated another buyback as soon as last completed.Imho.
Did want to say thank you to Brian Grad for expressing the long time holders displeasure.
Lastly,but most Importantly,concerning a get together.Caff/Jaret please let me know what weekends In June might you be available to come to Chicago for a " meeting ".As mentioned before I will cover your airfare and will make It a memorable weekend.If we can find a mutually agreeable weekend I will start planning.Thanks In advance.Cheers
Ouch !!! Nice zinger Bob but don't antagonize Silly as he Is busy calling out everyone on the Himax board.
Besides,with today's action In Chippy,he might go over the edge.Cheers
Good news and I stand corrected.However,If you liked them at $ 23.50 why would you not have In place a second buyback In place at $ 23.00 and below ? After this next 8150 Divy we will have 85 million ( 100 - 15 = 85 ) sitting In Bermuda.Completly unacceptable.Somebody PLEASE ask them on the C.C. Why they do not have another buyback In place or why not a special divy ?? It's time to show us the love.Cheers.
" Almost criminal " I have thought those exact words a lot recently but I did not want to put In a post.My patience Is at an end.They choose to Ignore IMOS shareholders by not buying back our stock.Then they won't even return to us the money raised by selling our shares to 8150 ( and themselves ) on the cheap !!! Somebody needs to ask why If no buyback do we not get a special divy ? A fair question which should be asked AND answered.Cheers.
Gee I guess that's why he did not return my repeated calls-right
Seriously,I have made several calls and cannot even get a return call from analyst.Done trying because even If we lined up an activist Investor group IMOS will cease to exist In the ( hopefully ) near future.
Concerning C.C. Is there anyone who will ask the hard question about the buyback.How many shares have you bought back ??? I would but am not allowed to participate as my questions are to direct for this " Secret Squirrel " Managment.Today was the perfect example of why you have a buyback In place.Im doubtful they took advantage.Nothing but good news and we end the day .13 cents from where the Spil shares were purchased.Pathetic.
Just left my contact Information with Baupost group and promised will be given to IMOS analyst.If no return call will call again tomorrow.Anyone know when Baupost next files changes In position ? Thanks In advance.Cheers
Fyi.Option action on this stock means nothing.For years I had long out of the money option positions which cost me money.Several botched buyback's and the the advice of Caff/Marnis made me reconsider.Due to Managment I have had to completely change my Investment style.Although I have actually made decent money being long the calls overall I now short the In the money puts.Last 2 expirations have made me over 5 figures.I should be happy right ? I am not. I am still short 200 March 25 puts which should be WORTHLESS !! I am tired Of these guys screwing us.The money In Bermuda Is OURS !! Managment has already made 200 % + on the shares they sold themselves at our expense.
Baupost has sold over half their MU position what happens when they decide that this " shareholder friendly " Managment Is clueless on how to reward shareholders ??
Two C.C. Ago they would not let me ask a question.Last C.C. I used a different telephone and my wife's last name and still was given the " Heisman " !! Somebody needs to step up and ask the hard questions. Since I see some other P.O. Long time Investors I will reach out to Baupost Monday.Hopefully with better results than before.Difference Is this time I will call everyday.Good weekend to all.Cheers
Great post which echoes 90 % of long time holders feelings.
How Is It possible they are allowed to buy 35,000 a day and we drift down .50 cents on B.S.volume of 44,000 ??? These guys are a joke.They reward the 8150 shareholders with risk less investments where they make 200 % to 300 % in six months.They sold OUR shares on the cheap and then will not do a buyback as demanded OR give us OUR money In Bermuda.We kept them from being delisted and this Is how we are treated ?? Please feel free to forward to Tweedle dee/Tweedle dum.Have a nice weekend.Cheers
What's next ? Cat's sleeping with dog's ? Chippy Never goes UP on low volume just down.And what happened to the afternoon dump ? What happened to ( I agree with Jam ) what looked like an Institutional seller ? I used to say the only thing more unpredictable then a wild turkey was a women.Now Chippy goes to the top of the list !!
O.T. EXAS has offered a great entry point ( again ). Only purchase after doing your own D.D. And approaching as a marathon not a sprint.Huge short position and these guys are good as evidenced by the bear raid Tuesday.Not for the faint of heart !! As Jaret called Tsem " stupid cheap " at $ 9.00 I say this Is screaming buy between $ 19 and 22.Strong buy 22 to 25.Imho.Cheers
Ditto.I have long said the U.S. Price Is Intentionally being kept down.Under no scenario can that be positive for us.I asked the board 3 months ago Which large long time holders wanted to pursue an " Activest Investor " role and got zero response.The long time IMOS had leers consistently get the shaft.We should not be made to wait till June for the collapse formula.I am sick of missing opportunities because of this " share holder friendly " Managment !! The least these jerks could do Is give us some of OUR money From Bermuda as a Divy while forcing us to wait.Cheers.
IMHO.Do you think Apple really wants to buy dram from their biggest smart phone competitor ? I think MU gave them the " Heisman " as they can get better dram prices elsewhere. The 800 pound gorilla demanded better prices and was forced to blink.Apple should have bought MU a long time ago.Now It's to late.Cheers
Although I'm sure you have relatives with multiple degrees the only one you have Is In B.S..
You are the greatest contrarian Indicator ever.The fact you favor Himax over IMOS makes my day and I own Himax.Ala John boy stop playing at Investing and just buy EXAS and thank me In 3 months.Cheers
