I have to start out by saying that I think these Gumshoe articles are great, & I don’t like putting people on the spot ( or people doing that to me), but I have a question to ask partly out of genuine curiosity, partly out of concern for my stock. Don’t take it as a criticism, but more of an inquiry. I followed this big long discussion one time, with you( Travis Johnson), very much a part of it in places, and other people were saying Mampilly’s stock was, I think, STM, but you were saying it was Himax, & you weren’t really fond of STM at all, because both the French & Italian governments had some serious control over how things were run ( & since the job of govts is to keep people employed, you could see this as less than optimal for profits). I ended up buying Himax, & a share of STM, I think, which has long been sold. I still have something like 400 shares
( absolutely HUGE for me),
because as soon as I would
try to avg. down the buy price, it would drop lower.
It’s now about $1 lower than my purchase price, per share. What happened?
I’ve read HIMAX lost a lot of people’s faith for not delivering facial recognition, or maybe other sensor capabilities. I found an article that said it’s at least a $5 stock (though he said that even at $5 it’s expensive, because I don’t think it has enough contracts. Does it have ANY future contracts? How does it fit into the 5G picture—not at all? How long do you think it’ll be before it’s back up to $5?
