Congratulations to the Houston Astros for winning the World Series in 7 games.
STOCKS IN THIS WATCHLIST ARE NOT GEARED TOWARDS ANY SPECIFIC TYPE OF TRADING (DAY, SWING, LONG). HOWEVER, THEY ARE EITHER TRENDING TOWARDS A BULLISH TECHNICAL CHART OR CURRENTLY IN ONE. ANY TECHNICAL ANALYSIS IS PROVIDED IN THE ACCOMPANYING CHART. PLEASE DO YOUR OWN DUE DILIGENCE BEFORE INVESTING IN THESE STOCKS. (The Shares Float is based on figures from FinViz.Com or wsj.com).
Stocks highlighted in this watchlist include: $HIMX, $LLNW, $IZEA
HIMX: Float of 148.7 million shares with 16.9% short. Although the float is somewhat larger than I would like, the percentage short is fairly large. Based on technicals, I expect some nice price action in the next 2 - 3 days.
For investors with an eye toward the future, Himax hits all the right buttons. It is prepped to have the same strong rebound Synaptics had earlier this year, and there are several reasons to feel confident it will deliver. The expansion of its WLO facilities is complete, so it can now meet customer demands, which was the reason for the investment in the first place.
One of the core reasons to get greedy with Himax stock is the significant strides it's making across multiple hyper-growth market opportunities, each expected to become multi-billion-dollar markets. They include the automotive and industrial Internet of Things (IoT) -- the largest of the large opportunities -- virtual reality (VR), and augmented reality (AR), along with 3D-sensor display and machine-vision technologies.
The immediate and long-term future looks so bright, Himax is diving headlong into building its new headquarters well ahead of schedule.
LLNW: A float of 106.2 million shares with only 0.22% short means this stock should be an awesome medium to long-term hold. I've also noticed that the company is not shy about having many News Releases (Catalysts) every month. News last week included:
- The company's reported record financial results for the Q3 2017.
- Qwilt, a leading provider of content delivery and open caching solutions, and Limelight Networks, (LLNW ), a global leader in digital content delivery, announced the two companies will provide integrated caching that delivers the best Quality of Experience (QoE).
IZEA: Float of 4.61 million shares with 6.57% short.
IZEA, operator of IZEAx®, the premier online marketplace connecting brands and publishers with influential content creators, will hold a conference call on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern time to discuss results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2017. The financial results will be issued in a press release prior to the call.
