    $PLUG is such a disgusting sham stock- I'm blown away by the collective price support in the market. Just wait for the results...

    • CleanEnergyNow: But I did read somewhere that the g-factory will make batteries for other customers. That's why Panasonic was involved...until they bailed.

        Just did some basic research on Campbell's $CPB due to curiosity. Wow, what a horrendously managed wreck the past decade!

            $15 puts expiring worthless on $BCOR. Lost a decent amount here. Wondering if the GCR report was garbage...?

                Sold the $7.50 $PLUG puts for 70c, gain of 40% in 1 hour (trailing stop). Holding the $5s in May-- looking for a massive drop.

                            $PLUG- most obvious short I've seen in my entire career. They did a massive equity raise at 15 cents last year! Always miss projections.

                                Taking a massive position in $PLUG $5 puts for May14. This is an extraordinary sham stock-- worth under $1.

                                • Weighing Machine: Volatility here is very expensive. Rather than buying the puts, sell the out of the money calls/LEAPs. Get paid for the vol.

                                • J Mintzmyer: No thanks. Stock could go to $20-$30 and break me. Upside of 100% versus put upside of 500%+. I'd sell LEAPs on a bigger fish like $TSLA.

                                        Long $GM at $32.69. I believe the sell-off over recalls is far overdone and 2014 looks to be a record year. PT $50+.
