Himax long-term story intact, says Credit Suisse
Credit Suisse analyst Jerry Su lowered Himax's LCOS/WLO shipment assumptions for Q4-1H 2017 on slower new platform adoption following supply chain checks. Su said the 2018 AR device ramp is on track and believes Himax's long-term story on consumer AR glass and 3D sensing for smartphone remains intact, since the capacity ramp up remains on schedule. The analyst said the potential launch of consumer AR glass and 3D sensing for smartphone should boost Himax's earnings in 2018 and reiterates his Outperform rating and $14 price target.

Himax estimates lowered at Northland
Northland analyst Tom Sepenzis lowered Himax forward estimates due to delays in augmented realty platforms that are taking longer to develop and concerns the large panel demand will weaken in 2017 as panel manufacturers have been switching to gate-on-array or gate-in-panel architectures over the past several months. Sepenzis expects augmented reality revenue to drop in Q4 and the first two quarters of CY17 and can be exacerbated as additional competition in large panel business as gate drivers are displaced in GoA & GiP architectures. The analyst maintains an Outperform rating and $12 price target on shares given expectations for the second major augmented realty device expected in 2H 2017.
