    "For 3D sensing, our checks suggest it has started some pilot production for customer qualification, but there are still a few tests needed to be done before it could begin mass production. We now model ~45 mn units of DOE shipments in 2017".

    Lets not forget that on the call Wu stated that 3D scanning was strong; why else would they be constructing a small fab to host production lines?

  • VR Headsets Get Stuck on Shelves
    Sales estimates fall for virtual-reality gear; internet users say they are ‘just not interested’
    By Miriam Gottfried

    Virtual reality was supposed to be the next big thing, but headsets haven’t exactly been flying off the shelves. The question is, why?

    There were $1.48 billion in VR hardware sales in 2016, according to SuperData Research. That is far from the $12.65 billion the research firm is forecasting for 2020. That estimate has come down, and there is still reason to question whether VR will get there.

    In March, digital marketing research firm Thrive Analytics asked the question to internet users who weren’t interested in owning a VR headset. The survey, as summarized by eMarketer, showed many of the expected reasons: the headsets were too expensive, lack of virtual reality content and poor quality of what was out there, and fear of motion sickness.

    The biggest chunk, some 53%, said they were “just not interested.” Perhaps actual reality is difficult enough.
  • In 2015 and 2016, 81.0% and 80.0% of our revenues, respectively, were attributable to display drivers that were incorporated into TFT-LCD panels,The TFT-LCD panel industry is volatile and difficult to predict. In 2014, smartphone boom in developed markets and in China generated great demand of small and medium sized panels, helping the TFT-LCD panel business to gradually recover. However, 2015 was a more challenging year for the TFT-LCD industry due to macro uncertainties and soft demand across the consumer electronics sectors. We cannot assure you that such similar events will not occur in the future or there will not be any future shortages of materials or components for our products or our customers’ products or a decrease in demand for our products.
  • Geo, Give it a rest pal, AR/VR is dead for now. You whine constantly about undercapitalized, sell, move on , find something better capitalized. Why do you persist in holding an issue all you do is whine about being undercapitalized, whatever implications that is supposed to have.
  • johnny obviously sold his shares... i would think
  • Fast Eddie, low volume price rise is trap for the ill informed. NOT yet.
  • What announcement? They aren't changing the div
  • Denny, I just bought PLAB. Cheers for the heads up on it.
    I also bought MVIS today. I've been trading this one for a while, its due to swing 20% higher and when it does, sell it.
  • Isn't it cute how people solicit denny/geoffreys opinions?
    Of course, rational people always take investment advice from a stranger on a message board!
    But then again, these posts are really just denny/Geoffrey beating off.
  • Geo, they pay out a dividend, have no debt , they finance their expansion internally. You are clueless.

    DEFINITION of 'Undercapitalization' When a company does not have sufficient capital to conduct normal business operations and pay creditors. This can occur when the company is not generating enough cash flow or is unable to access forms of financing such as debt or equity.
  • Elliot, the dividend has changed each year since 2013, 25¢,27¢,30¢,13¢. It'll be declared in June, to holders of record in July and paid in Aug.
  • Was reading a transcript from another firm that reported earnings last week. They commented FPD business is picking up however looking for 4th qtr to see how strong rebound will be. BTW 4th qtr for them is Oct fiscal yr. Also mentioned Amoled screen for phones the new thing. IC was reported as sluggish. 2nd Qtr results for HIMX will be soft in my opinion. Not chasing this. Patiently waiting cause I suspect we see yet another dip before it reverses higher.
  • Congratulations is in order to Denny for calling the low. Himx's pps fell to 6.4 today almost to his target of 6.38. Note that little john liar and pumping fool is nowhere to be found and has been mia for weeks.
