    Once the dust settles and it is known the Dish connection is a huge benefit to FTR we will move up once more. Thank you shout outs to the dumb money sellers today giving us a good day to buy cheap. Now do some DD and dig deep into the fundamentals..., FTR is a hidden gem IMHO.

    Recent run up, minor pull back sets up for another push to $10. Not a big deal if you follow the companies fundamentals. One day does not make a market...., it is long term that counts. HIMX long term growth is very strong. HIMX a small company in its field with huge potential. 2015 will be this companies turning point IMHO.

    Activist shareholder costs reimbursed

    Looking at this closer, it looks to be an agreement between our old management and Clinton for the 750K which I guess shows that is was a good decision for them to be ousted.

    Further down I saw that this Q3 we will see another 2.3M in severances pay. They need to do something to control these expenses more..., they are just too large. Son with this filing we can expect another .05 loss per share.

    This new management team needs to get a handle on increasing the book value which currently is $1.41 and stop the bleeding. This IMHO will be their largest task on the financials side.

    I would like to hear updates on the facility project. Most of all would like MB to get to 24/7 programing so we can compete head on with the two major players.

    Bottom line is I am a bit concerned that the new team is more of a cheerleader than results driven.., I hope I am wrong. I do not want us to go the wet seal way. I would like MB to be more proactive and keep us informed on his progress. Right now all I have seen is the status quo that we had with KS. This is not what we want from this new team. MB it is time to step up and show us what you are all about.

    I do not re invest the dividend. I take the dividend and take a position on another investment in a different industry and add to that until I have the amount of shares I want to hold. Then use those dividends to buy another. I like to spread the risk jav.

    Just a short term effect long term is what counts. Stocks like CYS are not a daytrader type of stock.

    I am not sure this was to Clinton Group as much as the remainder of the costs KS & RR ran up at the end. I would be a rather disappointed if our new management team voted to spend our money on both sides of the fight. We are not the government. Clinton would benefit if the share price rises from the new team they wanted. As of today that rise is a whole 7 cents.

    Not too bad I thought it would be .28 per share so .30, not that bad. I think we all expected a decline.

    P.S. I'd like to see them put together a plan to expand to get into every State. I would like to see this started in the 2nd half next year or sooner.

    I said they should do it locally and not Nationally. They are not in every State. They should support the local stores with ad dollars.

    So you are retired..., at what age? I retired at 51 and never went short.

    LOL! How's that Bear play going for you..., wishful thinking and thank you for your financial support to RAD by being short.

    Nice try steve, but read it more carefully. But maybe some can put pressure on Gary to get rid of DJ.

  • trumpace trumpace Sep 8, 2014 9:46 AM Flag

    casey, the only rookie is you or if you count ace there are two. One day tick down would not be a sign of a decline. I would argue that if the sales increased on average 4.1% the earnings may just do the opposite of what you think. Watch and learn.

  • trumpace trumpace Sep 8, 2014 9:42 AM Flag

    And how many buy's? You forgot that ace...., nice try. To bad for you are missing out on a good company while it is on the rise, too bad.

    Bear Attack next

    Your point is clear, now. But I would not consider the movement down a cause from the shorts. Short interest is very tiny and if the shorts wanted out there are plenty of shares out there to cover the demand. I do think short interest will drop more as more positive news is announced. It is about supply and demand and as more interest comes to HIMX that is what will cause the pps to rise as long as there is reason for the rise. I do think we know there is good reason. I agree it will not be a straight up activity. Some shareholders get nervous especially when the market corrects. I would argue we are overdue for a correction of at least 6% in the markets. When a 6% correction comes (10% for the Russell) HIMX most likely will suffer too. But the correction would be short lived IMHO as the market is not yet over priced. I expect a correction to last six days (trading days) and expect this anywhere from now to mid Oct. After the correction we move back up through the third week in January or so. JMHO.

    That's too easy. RAD just has too much dumb money in the stock chasing pennies as the daily volume shows. I like it more when they march it down which I see as opportunity for 2015. Look once the numbers start to come out in NOV for OCT and maybe even OCT for SEP, I would not be too surprised to see more smart money belling up to the table to feast on the dumb money sellers which would stabilize price declines more. That is the short term..., 2015 is where I see most of the gains. As for another reason for the push down of the share price from its high, it has to do with many, many holders who bought at a buck and change cashing out or what I call nervous hands that lack understanding of their investments long term potential under this management team. To me, IMHO this is really easy money until it gets to $12.50 or fair value against its peer group. I do think once the cat is out of the bag we will see a move to the $12.50. Whether it be this year or in 2015 is the question. However, the longer it trades in this range the more chance it could see an overbought situation of the pps moving to 14 or even 16. Now if the fundamentals prove this is a good price by reported earnings then so be it but if it were to go above the fair value number then a review of the company would be in order to determine if there is room for further upside or if it would be time to take a profit. I will cross that path when it happens. One step at a time, and that is the $12.50 target.

    geo, what is your number for your "Bear Attack"? I thought you'd like to share that before the week starts. Then we can judge your track record. With your thinking, you would have said when HIMX went from 16 to 13 that it would have been a sign of a Bull Attack coming, right? However it continued to fall back based on one customers trouble with inventory. However, that issue is now behind HIMX as that customer is once more ordering. Also with the announcements lately HIMX seems to be on a very much improved revenue path..., so what's not to say marching back to 16 can not happen just as fast as the fall? If one considers that fair value is around $17.33 again (since the improvements of the main issue have been taken care of) based on its competition i.e. peer group, HIMX has a ways to go on the upside, wouldn't you say? Now will HIMX go straight up..., I doubt it, it will have its down days of profit taking by the day traders or those who held to get back to even after the drop. But the trend line is up based on some analysts recommendations that are coming in right now based of improved earnings estimates. For me, I expect in a short time HIMX will move to $10, this coming week or the following. This I share with you since I did ask you for yours, Let's track each other to see who is more accurate.

    How can any investor hang their hat on an historical average? Worst measure ever. Now look at the current fundamentals and start your DD. Use what is known and current event paths management is pursuing. Changes happen in companies over time because of different management decisions along with the economy i.e. economical forces. As of today RAD is in a good place and one should take advantage of that for as long as it lasts. It is all about fundamentals...., and RAD's are strong now. It looks like they will be strong throughout 2015 as well. Thus why most analysts use 12 month targets and adjust them in a rolling pattern QOQ.

  • If we close above the 8.92 200 day average it could have a good chance to run to $10 but we would need about three days (trading days) or some real positive news. On a chart bases closing above the 200 day average is a very good sign further move to the upside could be coming. ALL JMHO. But one has to like the fundamentals of this company for the rest of this year and throughout 2015.
