Seeking Alpha is the Wikipedia side of the financials industry. Don't put to much stock in it. Before an article is approved for posting a group of Seeking Alpha editors checks the grammar and punctuation. They also look at it for content but do not look for correctness.

Kap, IMHO the "derp" Thursday is a healthy move for the chart as we can not go up everyday. We had including Thursday four straight days hitting a new 52 week high and that leads me to think a trace back at the close was good. Now if the chart stays true to its strength then we should see a move up today and possibly see the 5th day of a new 52 week high. If not we should see a move to 6.7-6.75 by the close. The unknown is the volume and we know that as long as the volume stays low a "derp" has the edge IMHO. So this pull back closing price to me strengthens the opportunity to push higher. This chart move should continue through Jan 17 at the least IMHO.
But keep in mind the market is way over due for a correction and I expect we will see one early in 2014 and VVTV could pull back along with the market at that time. I expect we will see some signs of a market pull back the last week of Jan or first week of Feb. For now I expect a market correction of 10% sometime in Feb to March 7th. If that happens we could see a strong 2014.
Way over sold yesterday for a penny difference in expectations for the low end and high end the analysts were expecting. RAD was just taking out the over the top estimate the street put on the company and bringing the analysts back to planet earth. So the analyst will adjust down their numbers and do it by too much as that is what they do and when RAD reports next they will beat IMHO and the pps will recoup as much as they lost Thursday. To me it is just a buying opportunity and a shake out of nervous hands to build a strong base line before another move up. I would not be too surprised to see RAD move up today as the sell off yesterday was way way over done.
I think we see a move up between 3.20-3.30 then on Jan 6th ex date a price adjustment back to 3-3.1 before moving up by payout date Jan 31 to 3.18-3.23.
southbeachtrader, you can only hope as you have for a long time now, but some just like to be disappointed. Today the stock is trading at a new 52 week high even as it has traced back a bit from 12.85. It may not hit 13 today but IMHO it will before it hits 9. You may want to move your number again to 12 from 9 you may have a better shot at that since it has had a pretty good run the last week or so. I know you are not serious and just trying to stir up some on the board..., each to their own I guess.
As with many companies that lower expectations, we now see RAD join the crowd. I would not be too surprised to see RAD beat the new number. Just look at the same store numbers. IMHO this could well be a buying opportunity if I am right. RAD is worth $7.50 IMHO.
lower expectations and then beat them, a lot of companies are playing that game. We'll see when they announce. Still thing short term the company should trade at $7.50 and twelve plus month target of $12. Just another opportunity.
I would have thought that with the money VELT has generated and the bad management to follow and then a sell of assets we would see some Law firms show up on behalf of the shareholders. Oh well
IMHO we will close above 12 as the potential is strong for HIMX and the smart money will come once more, like it has for most of the year. Shake out the daytraders and get real investors into the stock and we will continue to set new 52 week highs until at least mid January if not longer. All JMHO.
in a row a new intra 52 week high is set. At some point a break out is going to happen as the fall from the high a couple of years did not have residence, so a move up could come just a quick. But we need volume.
We hit a new 52 week intra day high today for the second day in a row, still a ways away from our high of a couple of years ago. Haven't heard anything from CH since just before earnings. Crickets are chirping.
Then think of the industry they are in and my number of $17.33 even looks cheap. With that said and with only what has been announced by the company, It is my opinion HIMX pps could in the next 12 months hit $24. Again only with what is known today. $17.33 by March is surely doable IMHO and $24 next year at this time.., if nothing changes. A 40+ PE, HIMX deserves.
mar, I agree we need to exceed the $8.78 level, but can not figure why we have yet to get there. Fundamentally this company is in far better shape then when that pps was hit. However, I am concerned that with the growth of household viewership and real customers to boot that management is still struggling with double digit revenue growth. They have done good work on the cost side which is the bottom line number. Now it is time for them to move that top line by at least 10-12% quarterly on average for 2014. I don't think we'll see double digit revenue growth for Q4 with consideration on the shorter time frame for the quarter unless they break out the comparisons to apple to apples..., we will see. KS and team need to show some very strong numbers or CH and company will have the upper hand in their quest. It should be interesting to say the least. Maybe..., just maybe we will hear from Comcast on the issue as they are a major stake holder in VVTV, for which side they will take in the battle. Either way 2014 will be an interesting time at least through Q2 anyway. Again todays true value IMHO is $12.50.
I know it was Dec 5 but not well published. This is larger news IMHO then an upgrade or could be the real reason for the upgrade IMHO. I didn't see this news until this morning..., maybe it is just me missing it but if I missed it others did too. I just think the China market is a huge market.
wedge is not doing an up or down here although I would not be to surprised to see them upgrade. What they said this morning is more important then any upgrade..., reread my post above. Baidu is the key as the potential is huge. Think China market.
