Himax upgraded to Outperform at Baird
As reported previously, Baird analyst Tristan Gerra upgraded Himax to Outperform form Neutral based on incremental revenue and mix opportunities from 3D sensors starting next year. He said the ramp remains solidly on track, but the stock's valuation does not seem to reflect the 3D camera module ramp opportunities. Gerra raised his price target to $10 from $6 on Himax shares.

Baird still believes Himax has multiple engagements for 3D cameras
Baird analyst Tristan Gerra notes that Himax (HMIX) and Qualcomm (QCOM) announced a collaboration for a 3D depth sensing camera system to enable computer vision capabilities, notably for use in smartphones. The analyst continues to believe Himax has multiple engagements for 3D cameras in smartphones starting to ramp next year, and views 3D cameras as a critical new, high-ASP component ramp in smartphones over the next few years. Additionally, Gerra points out that Apple (AAPL) may emulate multiple smartphone OEMs to adopt 3D Sensing starting next year. Many smartphone OEMs will require a turnkey 3D camera solution, which Himax/Qualcomm are best positioned to supply, he said. The analyst reiterates an Outperform rating and $10 price target on Himax shares.

Oppenheimer still views Himax as overvalued, keeps $4 price target
A history of growth opportunities not panning out coupled with a deteriorating core business make shares of Himax Technologies overvalued, Oppenheimer analyst Andrew Uerkwitz tells investors in a research note titled "Deja Vu All Over Again?" The analyst notes that his channel checks are inconclusive regarding near-term Diffractive Optical Element design wins. "To be generous," Uerkwitz models an Apple (AAPL) design win. He believes, however, that Himax is not well positioned competitively to be a primary player in this space for the Android segment beyond basic components such as DOE. The analyst reiterates an Underperform rating on Himax with a $4 price target. The shares closed yesterday at $11.09.
