Stock Trend Analysis - Buy, Sell or Hold "Himax Technologies, Inc." (HIMX)?

HIMX is trading below its 200 day moving average and objectively, many will consider the long term trend to be down. Care must however be taken with this view as in its last 52 week trading history, it is noted that HIMX has been range bound with a slight upward bias, having traded above the 200 SMA about 58% of the time. For the medium term, the 50 day moving average is generally in a trading range with a bearish downward bias. HIMX's 20 day moving average is however displaying very good underlying strength but it is susceptible to some profit taking in the short term. Objectively, as long as HIMX is trading below its 200 SMA and the 50 SMA is in bear territory, rallies will be sold into.
