    This company still amazes me, I don't understand why it's so "undiscovered"

    Consider the following:
    1. They are in a GREAT sector (semiconductors)
    2. They are the leader in a new emerging technology (mini & micro LED)
    3. Cash flow is still growing every quarter.
    4. They have $740M in cash and NO DEBT (crazy)
    5. They just raised their dividend by 21%.
    6. Analyst price targets: Low--$68....Average--$86.30.....High--$100 and we trade below $60????
    7. P/E of 8 on forward earnings.

    I could go on, but like I say....It amazes me that this is so undiscovered. If I had a couple of $billion I'd buy this company out.

    This stock really swings on almost no news. It's $50, it's $72, it's $50, it's $65, now $55 handle again. Kinda funny for such a low P/E stock.

    Just a heads up. I do mostly fundamentals but I also refer to the simple finviz chart and MAXPAIN for options mostly when trying to pick price points to buy, or sell, or write calls.

    Currently it shows a head n shoulders which means we should be going down. Im not a chart expert but I think this is one of the simplest chart patterns. Not sure how much influence it really has.

    i'M LONG and basically have been for over 20 years. Just a heads up.

    I own a bunch of common. Have some short term calls for APRIL and wrote other calls against some of them and alsoJAN 2024 40 calls.

    If folks do pay attention to that head n shoulders and you're looking to add might be a good opportunity. Me - I have enough KLIC it's about the mas I like ot let it get to before writing against some.

    I get why this dropped like a rock but putting this company in the same class as companies with huge debt and no earnings seems a little irrational. Especially when they supply the equipment to make semiconductors when we supposedly have shortages.

    Does anyone understand why the short interest is so high on such a cheap stock?

    Be patient! Short squeezing will happen.

    It's back for 2021!

    The 20th Annual Cr-ppy Stock Picking Contest

    Wow, 20 years with this contest. 2021 has been the year of the meme stock. Sketchy assets have been bid up to remarkable valuation. But not necessarily everything. Your task is to pick the stock that will perform best in January, 2022. The contest is open to all. To make it interesting, I will make a $100 donation to the charity of the winner's choice. So sharpen your pencils, get your DD on, and remember, it's for a good cause. Perhaps we will get to compete against last year's champion Caffeinated Biochemist.

    The rules.

    1. Pick the stock that will do best in January, 2022. It has to be a stock, not options or warrants or anything similar. Unleveraged simple ETF's are also acceptable.

    2. It must be priced at $1 or more at the close of 2021.

    3. One person per stock, one stock per person. First come, first served.

    4. Your pick doesn't have to be a lousy company, but such picks are encouraged. Stonks, too. If possible, provide a story about the company and why you believe it will be a good choice.

    5. Entries must be received by 12:00 AM, January 3, 2022.

    6. Good luck to all.

    I told others on this board that I would add to my position under $61.....well I did. Doubled down, I didn't catch the absolute bottom but no one can "time" the market. Early February earnings report is just around the corner.

    I bought this at $58.04 November 19 '21 and man it's been all over the place since then up and down and back where I started. I guess I'd buy it again today (1/12/22), and by holding it's kinda like I am.

    KLIC recent weakness is most likely due to the CEO/CFO inside selling. I will add more next Monday if KLIC still go down. I believe that 2022 should be the value stock' turn especially semiconductor value stock like KLIC, HIMX, MU, WDC, COHU, SIMO, ICHR, UCTT, AOSL, ACLS.

    I am amazed at how poorly KLIC has performed the past few weeks, even compared to our peers that I define as mostly the frontend guys.

    I usually compare to AMAT, LRCX, KLAC, TEL, UCTT, etc

    IMO it's not behaving like I htink it should.

    There still can be tax loss selling from the spike to 75 in Sep or even the very brief spike almost back to 75 a few weeks ago but folks likely bought high 60's and now we are at 55 and change.

    I'm fully loaded with common and some options including trading positions9again).

    Merry Christmas folks! No US markets tomorrow!
