    CPST: Wrightspeed moves to their own genset.

    They make big gains using axial flow after the intake, which is radial flow.

    "Wrightspeed unveils new turbine range extender for medium- and heavy-duty electric powertrains; 30% more efficient than current microturbine generators"

    P.S. 10K hour lifetime vs. CPST's 40K+ hours.

    LT: Might be able to do a rough approximation, although we don't know what portion of shelf registration is being offered currently.

    "... which together shall have an aggregate initial offering price not to exceed $175,000,000".

    The S-3 is here.

    Catching up on reading and found this from August by Stockman: "Why The Fed's Outrageous Gift To Foreign Banks--- Risk Free Aribitrage On IOER--Is Just The Tip Of The Iceberg"

    http://seekingalpha.co...

    A fun read as we get confirmation of the FED funding for banks with our money.

    No worries WWT - they're just slowly letting the "airs" out of the bubble so we won't get a big sudden drop. :-))

    Mathieu: One of the many factors used to try and estimate what's happening in the economy. It suggests whether or not the consumer is likely to be taking on more debt (houses, cars, ...), would theoretically affect consumer cyclicals and consumer durable goods (washers, dryers, autos, ...).

    Think of it as the retail equivalent of the PMI.

    Caused by Solarity tweeting estimated results before release.

    TWTR requested halt.

    HardToLove
    P.S. TWTR will release earlier due to the Solarity effect.
    P.P.S. Meets EPS and revenue that Solarity reported.

    TB: Latest is it's not U.S. Norwegian flagged somewhere in the Carib.

    No U.S. citizens on-board either.

    "moved up the conference call an hour and a half tomorrow"

    If results are known to likely be viewed favorably, additional punishment for the shorts? Revenge served cold?

    "but I’m not too sure we can corral it"

    probably more accurate s/b

    "but I’m not too sure we WANT TO corral it"

    Maybe I'm just jaded, but who wants to kill off a major source of their revenues?

    As with any business, your "best customers" always get some special consideration if it can be given w/o much risk.

    SROs (Self-Regulatory Organizations) like major exchanges, FINRA, ... allow the promulgation of such behavior with minimal risk even though intentions may generally be "good". Profit is a strong enough motive to often overcome "good intentions" when the areas are gray or the expected penalties if wrong-doing is decided are just "cost of doing business" levels.

  • There Is Little 'Fact' In The Austerity Vs. Deficit Spending Debate [View article]
    John,

    A good read in Cullen's paper. Should be mandatory.

    The second link has what seems a glaring inaccuracy: "Cullen has indicated that the key to understanding modern monetary theory ..."

    AFAICT, monetary reality, not theory was his goal. I do recognize that close proximity of the description in Cullen's paper and MMT, but ISTM Cullen shied away from "theory" for a reason and those folks at erablogdotcom should honor the separation Cullen created.

    Good to see you.
