01-23-2017: Too Soon for 3-D HolographicTech Virtual Reality or Ground Floor?

Himax Technologies (HIMX) is a semiconductor circuit manufacturer whose circuits are used in a variety of "display" applications over a large diversified customer base. Because the company is based in Taiwan, it takes a hit on some of our rating criteria because of reduced reporting requirements.

Its stock has plummeted and reasons given don't appear to be related to its fundamental strength. Rather it has concentrated a portion of its revenue hopes upon DDIC circuitry related to "virtual reality." Products based upon this are expected to reach consumer popularity with decreasing prices in about two years. Meanwhile, the company appears to be "on hold" with regard to its fortunes in that highly competitive arena.

Investors will be fighting with concepts of "getting in on the ground floor" versus "too long a wait" to see how competition shapes up in a still developing technology.

Zenith's Active List of 39 Stocks as of 01/14/2017

(Updated once a week, usually on Saturday except when less than 5 trading days in the week.)

Note: Zenith tries to pick only stocks which are shortable, but sometimes stocks appear afterward on the SEC Regulation SHO list of stocks which are not shortable, which is beyond our control. On some stocks, Zenith may hold more than the number of shares it trades in its inventory. Thus the "short" sale of such a security would technically not be a "short" sale for us and not subject to SEC rules regarding selling securities which are not deliverable. Also, stocks pop on and off the list available for shorting on successive days, so the presence of a stock on the current SHO list doesn't mean it was there at the time it was shorted.

Recommendations may include trades which have already been made on the same or a previous day,otherwise the issue is placed on a "watch list."  Suggested stock trades are based upon an approximate maximum $30,000 capitalization requirement per trade.   Zenith's actual trades may be larger.
