    Recovering former long. How is it possible for revenue to decline? Hey, we're doing this, we're managing that, we got your UPS right here...

     

    Initially, I was also long Westport but the more I saw how little they earned, the further out that horizon seemed to be. CLNE, at least was selling NG. But the adoption is slow, even for Cummins. Recent articles have also pointed out that CLNE's strategy may be difficult and there is no shortage of operators who are already outpacing the development here. That makes since - if you've ever seen one of those high-volume truck stops in the West, they aren't going to sit starting out the window as more and more NG trucks pass them by. They'll simply add a section for gas and then subtract diesel as needed.

     

    The best beneficiaries of this eventual switch is whoever has gas wells - their prices will stabilize without so much variability in demand.

    I am an idiot that thought the SEC would protect him and that he could actually make money in the stock market and that all oil men were so rich that they would never need to screw a common share holder, well DA me.

    Retired in 1998 after 33 years working in R&D / Marketing Health Care Co. Spent the last 8 years writing a non fiction book "Reverse Evolution of Man" scheduled as an eBook for distribution in about 3 months,. A brief that contains the substance of this book was published in a peer review journal (Journal of American Science 2010) which can be read by entering the title of my paper into the Google search engine"

    Roy,

     

    You should read the two stories critical of CLNE and the one sandwiched in the middle touting their strengths. I was unaware of how competitors were rapidly ramping up their own game which might leave Clean without any meaningful advantage.

     

    So click on CLNE in the blue lettering above or start reading here:

    and draw your own conclusions. Worth noting for both CLNE and Westport that future dilutions may be required to stay cash positive.
