Himax downgraded on slow AR uptake, TDDI competition at Craig-Hallum
As previously reported, Craig-Hallum analyst Anthony Stoss downgraded Himax (HIMX) to Hold from Buy as he believes the Augmented Reality revenue ramp investors were expecting will not materialize in 2017 with devices like Microsoft's (MSFT) HoloLens still in the developmental stage. He also doesn't think the company's touch and display driver integration business will ramp as quickly as expected given strong competition, in particular from Synaptics (SYNA). Stoss cut his price target on Himax shares to $7 from $10.
