  • Breaking Down This Google Glass Play Into Pieces

    By Harsh Chauhan - August 18, 2013 | Tickers: GOOG, HIMX, SSNLF

    Himax Technologies (NASDAQ: HIMX) has been on a tear this year, appreciating more than 150%. The stock suddenly came into the spotlight earlier this year after it was revealed that it would be supplying a key component to Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) for the Google Glass. And then, Google agreed to finance its display business last month.

    It would be an understatement to say that shares have taken off after these more »

  • The Euphoria Around This Google Glass Play Is Overdone

    By Harsh Chauhan - July 25, 2013 | Tickers: GOOG, HIMX

    Shares of semiconductor company Himax Technologies (NASDAQ: HIMX) have surpassed all my expectations this year with the stock appreciating more than 200% so far. Much of this rise can be attributed to the company’s rumored relationship with the Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) Glass project.

    However, Himax’s recent announcement that Google has agreed to finance its display business, which focuses on the production of liquid crystal on silicon chips (LCOS more »

  • This Is a Buy-at-Your-Earliest-Convenience Kind of Stock

    By Michael Gregg - June 29, 2013 | Tickers: GOOG, HIMX, SSNLF

    You may have heard of Himax Technologies (NASDAQ: HIMX) before. Most likely, you heard about it through the research of Mark Gomes, who produced evidence linking the Taiwanese semiconductor company to Google's (NASDAQ: GOOG) Glass project. While it hasn't been confirmed by either company, there is a mounting pile of evidence that it is, in fact, Himax's LCOS Microdisplay that provides the backbone of the Google glasses more »

  • Glass or No Glass, This Stock Is Just Class (but Conditions Apply)

    By Harsh Chauhan - May 13, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, GOOG, HIMX

    The last three months have been simply outstanding for those who have their money invested in Himax Technologies (NASDAQ: HIMX) with shares gaining more than 100% since late February. I’d expected Himax to scale great heights when I covered it in February, but its meteoric rise has me rubbing my eyes in disbelief.

    At that time, Himax was trading under $3, had a trailing P/E of less than more »

  • Are These Massive Movers a Buy?

    By Brian Nichols - May 9, 2013 | Tickers: HIMX, ININ, MELI

    As the markets traded to new all-time highs there were several stocks seeing massive post-earnings pops on Tuesday. In this piece I am looking at these stocks to determine if the move was warranted and if further upside exists.

    This Stock Just Keeps Going Higher!

    One of the more under-the-radar performances of 2013 has been from Himax Technologies (NASDAQ: HIMX) and its 173% return, including its 9.17% post-earning pop more »

  • Big Wave Trading Portfolio Update And Top Current Holdings

    By Joshua Hayes - March 9, 2013 | Tickers: AXLL, CAMP, CSU, CHUY, CPSS, EAC, FLT, GNMK, HEES, HIMX, POWR, PFBI, V, WAGE

    The Big Wave Trading Model switched back to a BUY mode on 3/5/13 following a switch to a NEUTRAL mode on 2/25/13. The switch to NEUTRAL on 2/25/13 in our analysis of over 130 years of stock market history should have not switched back to BUY mode so quickly. The price breaks on 2/20 and 2/25 have historically led to months of more »

  • Stocks to Profit From the Next 2 Big Things

    By Harsh Chauhan - March 6, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, CREE, GOOG, HIMX

    We are always in the hunt for the next Amazon, or the next Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL), or simply put, the next groundbreaking company that would bring about a game changing product. Well, what if I told you that I’d found two such companies last year, and both of them look set to get even better going forward.

    On a single day of trading earlier this week, both these stocks more »

  • Big Wave Trading Portfolio Update And Top Current Holdings

    By Joshua Hayes - February 24, 2013 | Tickers: ASTM, AXLL, CAMP, CSU, EAC, FLT, HEES, HIMX, POWR, WAGE

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio Model remains under a BUY signal from 1/2/13. There is added pressure arising on the overall model, thanks to the Wednesday and Thursday distribution days and the overall wedging pattern of the overall uptrend. This, along with the lack of gains above 1.5% on higher volume, following the 1/2/13 signal, keeps us in the cautious bull camp which is where more »

  • Have You Ever Heard of This $3 Stock? If not, Then You’re Missing Great Returns

    By Harsh Chauhan - February 21, 2013 | Tickers: AAPL, HIMX

    I’m not too sure whether many analysts, investors or bloggers are aware that a company known as Himax Technologies (NASDAQ: HIMX) even exists, even though its products are embedded within devices that make us feel that we live in the 21st century. As a maker of display drivers for monitors, notebooks, TVs, tablets, smartphones, cameras and what not, there are high chances that Himax has touched our lives more »

  • Big Wave Trading Portfolio Update And Top Current Holdings

    By Joshua Hayes - January 27, 2013 | Tickers: ASTM, CAMP, CSU, EAC, FLT, GNMK, HEES, HIMX, POWR, VRNM

    The Big Wave Trading Portfolio remains under BUY signals across the board. There is nothing still to do or think too much about as the trend higher is smooth and has come under very little pressure minus two minor distribution days in the Nasdaq Composite.

    Overall, many traders believe that it is time for us to take a rest or pullback. However, traders have been thinking this for a while more »

  • Big Wave Trading Portfolio Update And Top Current Holdings

    By Joshua Hayes - January 21, 2013 | Tickers: ASTM, CAMP, CSU, FLT, GNMK, HEES, HIMX, POWR, VRNM

    The Big Wave Trading portfolios all remain under a strong BUY signal as stocks tacked on more gains the past week with volume coming in higher than the previous week. Overall, it was another strong week and nothing out there is currently of concern on our radar.

    Despite the low VIX, the high amount of bulls in the Investors Intelligence survey, and lack of extremely strong volume when we do more »

  • A Stock for the Long Term Investor

    By Harsh Chauhan - March 20, 2012 | Tickers: AMZN, AAPL, ATML, HIMX

    There are a number of component suppliers who stand to gain from the mobile computing revolution. But investors need to be smart enough and separate the wheat from the chaff so that they can put their money on the right stocks. One such company which caught my mind when I was scouting for such stocks is Atmel (NASDAQ: ATML). Let’s see why.

  • 5 Under the Radar Dividend Kings To Consider

    By Robert Fisher - January 12, 2012 | Tickers: FLY, GEL, GBDC, HIW, HIMX
