07/06/16 02:49 PMHimax: Northland Sees Some Risk From Samsung In-Sourcing - [at Barrons.com] - Northland’s Tom Sepenzis, a bull on shares of display technology vendor Himax Technologies (HIMX), today warns that there could be some trouble for the company in the latter part of this year because a large South Korean handset maker — a veiled reference to Samsung Electronics (005930KS), perhaps — is going to source its own production of organic light-emitting diode panels, perhaps reducing demand for Himax’s technology. "Himax began shipping AMOLED display drivers to a large South Korean panel and handset maker in the month of March,” writes Sepenzis, "one of the major drivers to its small/medium DDIC business for CY16/17 in addition to its first wins at Xiaomi." "We believe there is some risk to the customer bringing the production back in house in the second half of CY16 and beyond." However, there’s upside for Himax if Chinese vendors of smartphones turn to it in stead of Samsung: Impact – We believe our current model could potentially see an additional $20-$30 million impact in the current year if the large South Korean customer moves the DDIC business back in-house, or curtails its outsourcing plans.
