Himax Technologies, Inc. (ADR) (NASDAQ:HIMX) is best known for having Alphabet invest in it a few years ago. Since then, markets pin supply contracts for AR/VR will outpace this large panel display driver supplier.

Himax’s contracts to VR makers are real, but the company cannot reveal who they are due to confidentiality agreements. Its 24.2% gross margin in 2016 will grow once smartphones and electronic devices build in both AR and VR solutions.

Himax’s quarterly revenue will change from uneven to upward, once companies like Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), with its HoloLens, and Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) push VR solutions to market:

You could do a lot worse.
