  • Motley fool is just that. they promote a stock until it goes up and then write a story of how the stock stinks. They charge for news that everyone can find out for free. What a rip off no good service. They advised selling Wayfaring at 40.00 Now it's over 76.00. Who pays these idiots
  • Oppenheimer busted trying to steal shares right before the dividend? It is nice to see
    HIMX defend their company and fire the thieves. Their thief, errr..."analyst" hadn't even talked to
    HIMX before making their claims and downgrading the stock by 50%.
  • Credit Suisse's Jerry Su ups HIMX price tgt from $6.70 to $8.70

    //● DOE shipments to ramp in 3Q17. Our industry checks suggest Himax’s DOE (Diffractive Optical Element) for 3D proximity
    sensing will ramp up from mid-3Q17. We estimate DOE to account for 4% of sales in 2017 but would increase to 7% in 2018.
    ● Large size DDI would also recover in 2H. We think its 2Q large
    size DDI sales are tracking to -10% QoQ guidance. Nevertheless, we expect large size DDI to recover in 2H on better TV panel pullin, higher 4K penetration, and stabilising market share at BOE.
    ● Smartphone recovering but TDDI still behind. Smartphone panel pull-in has resumed since 2H of May and should continue into 3Q on new model launches. We believe Himax will benefit from this trend, but remain conservative on its TDDI business as our checks suggest it remains behind its peers on TDDI design win.
    ● Retain NEUTRAL. We raise our 2017/18 EPS estimates from ¢7.5/30 to ¢10/33 on higher revenue from DOE. We lift our
    TP to US$8.7 (from US$6.7), based on our revised DCF model, implying 22x 2018-19 average EPS. We would continue to
    monitor its progress on TDDI and 3D sensing ramp up in 2H17.//
  • 9 today?
  • MF bashing HIMX again. No need to read what they say ever.
  • Ya gotta love the follow-through! Good possibility we could finally see a significant earnings surprise next report. If so , with strong guidance, sp would most likely see the teens in short order. Fundamentals and a little hope thrown in. Good investing to you longs.
  • too much froth for my liking. I lightened up considerably at $8.85. Love the company, but too many day trippers and know-nothings in the stock at this point.
  • start to think that as soon as they will reveal their market potential this baby will be up 20
  • impressed by the resiliency the stock has shown after two negative pieces (MF & Rosenblatt downgrade) and the lessening of the froth seen over the past two days. may buy back in a lot sooner than later...
  • donkey...with my added purchases higher..i own 148,000 shares @ 6.191..up from 5.78125...factor in the 23c div and i own at 5.961 net...sure i didn't sell at 16 when my ownership was 50,000 shares..i have accumulated far more in the interim...i think this company sees higher than mid 20s eventually..no need to watch or sell until it hits my target..i wish u would stop feeling sorry for me that i didn't sell at 16...being 2.6pts in the money on 148,000 shares isn't a terrible place to be sitting ace...nor is owning bgcp at 3 and change and its at 13.20 and 8yrs of dividends at 60c or greater a year..well this year is 72c
  • haha MF u can't bring it down.
  • FLORIDAHOCKEYMAN..u lightened up? because there are too many day trippers, swing traders, blah blah blah?? all those posts illustrating a bright future as in 2019/2020 and beyond and you lightened up in july 2017?? u kind of are just that type of player..short term trader..happy u made money..but you can now be defined as the trader you were critiquing..happy u made money..hope everyone does..
  • First try to hold $8.61 failed, maybe tomorrow. it'll hold above that level on the way to $9.50 finally.
  • a big driver of future EPS gains for HIMX. From the last CC: "Driver ICs used in automotive application has been the best performing category for us in recent years. We are seeing solid momentum in the second quarter with revenue to grow around 15% sequentially and over 50% year-over-year. Being the market share leader with numerous Tier-1 automotive brands as our indirect end-customers, WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY ENGAGED ALL KEY PANEL MANUFACTURERS AND MODULE HOUSES WORLDWIDE FOR LONG-TERM PARTNERSHIPS AND SECURED MANY OF THEIR KEY PROJECTS PIPELINED FOR THE NEXT FEW YEARS.

    To address the growing IC demand out of large automotive displays and more displays per vehicle, we continue to develop advanced technologies including IC solutions for on-cell and in-cell touch screens." (emphasis mine)


    How China plans to take over the car industry
    More workers in the global auto industry are relying on Chinese companies to sign their paychecks these days.
  • looks like my gut was correct... will re-enter as soon as the froth is squeezed out... HIMX is rock solid on the fundamentals, and should head much, much higher in time...
  • Back to a 0.35c dividend per quarter = $1.40 ???
  • Still more upside to be realized. This push will take it to $9.50. Only thing worse than being caught short is being caught short and responsible for the dividend as well. 2 more solid days ahead.
  • For you TA buffs, HIMX upgraded to a "Strong Buy" per Market Edge: //Recommendation - Stock is a Strong Buy.
    Comment - The current technical condition for HIMX is strong and the underlying indicators should keep the current uptrend intact. The stock has outperformed the market over the last 50 trading days when compared to the S&P 500. The MACD-LT is confirming that the intermediate-term trend is bullish. Chart formation indicates a strong rising trend. Over the last 50 trading sessions, there has been more volume on up days than on down days indicating that HIMX is under accumulation, which is a bullish condition. The stock is trading above a rising 50-day moving average. This validates the strong technical condition for HIMX. The stock is above its 200-day moving average but the 200-day is pointed down indicating that the intermediate-term trend is still in question.//
  • Monday should prove to be a very interesting day. 8900 options expired today means shorts can't rely on options for protection. Maybe we see the $9.50 next week. Shorts find themselves between a rock and a hard place.
