    No.....your target is to low....the move to 16 was based on hype.....the move to $20+..will be based on fundamentals.....and LCOS....

    Doral should stand their ground with the $ amount......but establish a time payment plan of 2-5 years plus interest......I am not a lawyer but what about damages? and legal fees?
    I would like to see a buyout.....$15-30.....and move on......
    The trading position combined with my core position has me almost at breakeven....but I want to be rid of this stock ....

  • The Company is accelerating our R&D activities, hoping to capture the exciting business opportunities it just mentioned as soon as it can. Operating expenses in the third quarter are expected to increase some 20% year over year mainly as a result of accelerating R&D. This is in line with the strategy the Company set forth last year when, during a few of the earnings calls, the Company indicated that it intended to expand our R&D expenses in 2014, following several years of stable R&D spending. While this will inevitably affect the short-term bottom line, it is believed that such R&D investment will generate significant top line and bottom line growth starting next year.

    I have used IBD for 20 years and used several of their premium services.........which has produced many winners for me ...
    With regards to MCZ....the chart has alerted me that a stage one base has formed after yesterdays action...
    its a consolidation base with a pivot point of 78c..
    In other words let the uptrend begin!!!!!!!

    I believe that a slow accumulation phase has begun...which will push the price between 64c and 80c...and once this last quarter is over with the earnings release in august....the march to $1 will begin ...We probably will see $1+ in the fall

    As I have stated previously i worked for a Nyse market maker for 25 years....and had access to the behind the scences how market makers work..I attended weekly strategy meetings once a week.
    There are many strategies that are constantly in play by these guys....For starters these guys see the individual traders and investors as novice "dumb" cant put it any other way
    NEVER trust large bids or offers ...it is a reverse psycholgy....mm never want you to know what they are really doing
    They disguise their actions with 100 share trades .....but you can tell what their bias is..like last friday....I think their was a 25,000 share bid to buy....and the mm had a limit price...
    The best way to flush these guys out is a large market order...but who is that brave..unless there is a certanity

    my current take is this:
    The bias is to the upside.....I have seen several times this week....selling pressure where the volume exceeds the published bid .....but the stock holds well....that says one thing to me.....the mm are not disclosing "advertising" bids
    I am still in big time for the big payday

    He also did not mention the dividend increase ...and the the unveiling of new technology.....Im tired wasting my time with this guy.....but the reality is he is causing shortterm havoc....
    The final point i want to drive home with longterm investors is....if you held out this long why would you sell now especially with the dividend less than 6 weeks away....that would be insane!!

    I fully agree..however....things are about to change

    If there is going to be any insider purchases .....tommorrow would be a good start....There is no definite rule on this but most firms wait 3-5 days after an earning release to allow any officer or employee to buy stock....In my personal case I had to wait 3 days....
    It is kind of embarrassing that indivdual retail investors own more shares than Karen and close to DR...
    Will you please put your money where your mouth is!!!!
    Is buying 100,000 shares that expensive for the both of you come on
    I know we will get to $1....but we can get there faster with an insider buy....This week would be good timing

    If the government claims they are in a cash crunch...........First acknowledge the contract and agree to pay in installments between 2-5 years.....plus interest....
    Also pay for damages caused by the drop in the stock from $10 to $2 or roughly $50-60 million.....They caused it!!!

    If Doral wins in court which I believe they will...they should not stop cleaning up the Balance Sheet.....because further down the road they can actually demand a higher price...
    I think liquidation is now totally being ruled out.....the only two options remaining are a buyout or restructure....
    I prefer a buyout so I can close this chapter...
    I am sticking with $10-15 conservative
    $15-25 aggressive.
    I did not let this crisis go to waste .....after taking a big hit...I tripled down....A sizable trade at $2 and @2.45.....but I am trading in and out on these lots

  • Doral Financial Corp. has filed a lawsuit against the Puerto Rico government as it ratchets up a fight over a $230 million tax deal, bringing in stateside legal heavyweight Ted Olson to lead the charge.

    Doral filed the lawsuit on Thursday in San Juan Superior Court with a writ for certification in the island’s Supreme Court.
    Doral and Puerto Rico’s government are locked in a heated battle over the $230 million as both sides struggle to regain their financial footing in a wobbly economy. The bank had threatened legal action after the Treasury Department rejected its demand for payment and then canceled the 2012 agreement over tax overpayments.
    “This is very unfortunate as we’ve been unsuccessful in convincing the government to resolve the matter amicably,” said CEO Glen Wakeman. “In that context, the bank’s leadership was left with no other option than to take this legal action to protect its rights under the law and the interests of its various stakeholders, including its counterparties, bondholders, preferred shareholders, stockholders, employees and customers.”
    Doral Financial is the holding company for San Juan-based Doral Bank, which is the second-largest mortgage lender on the island. The bank also operates in select stateside U.S. markets and has said it is increasing its focus on its profitable mainland business as it continues to lose money on the island amid a marathon economic downturn in Puerto Rico.
    The dispute between the Treasury Department and Doral escalated last month when the government announced it was nullifying a multimillion-dollar agreement with the bank.
    “This is a blatant violation of contract and lawless act by the Treasury Department and the commonwealth of Puerto Rico,” said Olson, lead counsel for Doral and a former U.S. solicitor general. “The commonwealth have a binding and enforceable agreement that awards Doral the tax refund it is owed. If this administration can tear up the agreements reached by the last administration, then n

    Want to make 3 points

    Rosenblatt Securities is NOT an official analyst who covers HIMX...they are not on the list.....they know nothing...they dont even speak to management..

    Google glass is still mentioned under growrh strategies in 2014

    A dividend of 25c was paid in 2013 based on a 2012 eps of .302c so its reasonable to say that the dividend will be higher based on 2013eps of .358c..which appears to be near 30c

    In June we will know much more
    The dividend and more on google glass at the
    conference June 25

    But I must repeat the NDA is keeping himx from responding....NOONE knows anything!!!!!!!
