Higher option volume in Himax driven by large blocks of 10-strike calls

Higher option volume in Himax driven by large blocks of 10-strike calls. The stock up 13c to $7.33 and 10.9K Jan 10 calls bought for 85c, untied. It's likely closing, as open interest is 20K and the strike is now 36.4% above spot. However, 6K Jan2020 10 calls trade for $1.70 and appears to be an opening buyer (market was $1.4 to 1.70 and open interest is 950). 8.2K traded on the day. As a result, total volume is 4X daily average at 22K calls and 560 puts. Estimated earnings date is 5/10.

Himax downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Northland
Northland analyst Gus Richard downgraded Himax to Market Perform from Outperform and cut its price target to $8 from $12 due to the push out in 3-D sending, weakness in small/medium display, and lower WLO forecasts. Richard believes the facial recognition application is not ready for mobile payment in China, which caused Himax lead customer, Xiaomi, to push out the launch of a phone with 3-D sensing to September from May. As a result, the analyst cut this product estimate for CY18 to $40M from $76M. Note Nomura also downgraded Himax shares this morning to Neutral from Buy.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Mattel (MAT) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Barclays, with analyst Felicia Hendrix saying Mattel faces downside risk from the potential Toys R Us liquidation. 2. Himax (HIMX) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Northland and to Neutral from Buy at Nomura Instinet. 3. Ecopetrol (EC) downgraded to Underperform from Hold at Santander. 4. Acacia Communications (ACIA) downgraded to Underweight from Equal Weight at Morgan Stanley, with analyst Meta Marshall saying he thinks Wall Street estimates remain too high for 2019 as he does not see a rebound in Acacia's biggest markets -- namely China and datacomm systems -- being as lucrative as consensus expectations given competition and pricing pressures. 5. Match Group (MTCH) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Wells Fargo, with analyst Peter Stabler saying he believes further share appreciation will need to rely "more squarely on positive revisions rather than multiple expansion." This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

Himax downgraded to Neutral on delayed addoption of 3D sensing at Roth Capital
As previously reported, Roth Capital analyst Suji Desilva downgraded Himax to Neutral from Buy, citing the belief that smartphone 3D sensing programs have been pushed out and are more likely to begin to ramp in volume toward the back-end of 2018. Given this view, Desilva lowered 2018 revenue estimates for Himax and cut the price target on the stock to $8 from $12.
