  • Plug Power: Irrational Exuberance To End In Ruin [View article]
    Article submitted yesterday??? Is March 11th yesterday? Atlas, the article is posted and dated today.

    The fuel cell and PLUG stock pumps were totally aimed at the cult stock followers from early last Friday. This post was right after the Fox Tesla/Plug pump article posted yesterday that kept the pump going high on PLUG till this morning.

    Seeking Alpha should have held off on this flaming buzz word laden article!

    My Question: Why is this author naming Tesla many times in this article? Answer: Most likely he wants to scare the Tesla traders that bought into this stock after reading the very positive Fox Tesla/Plug article yesterday. The author could have named many overvalued stocks but preyed on jumpy cult Tesla buyers. Very clever!

    My question is how much did this author own/short before he dumped this toxic article on PLUG?

    Both articles written on Plug are extreme bull and bear plays designed to get the cult buyers to buy and sell very quickly. Seeking Alpha needs to open their eyes to these posted trigger articles targeting curtain buyers and sellers!

  • BlackBerry: A Definite Buy At Its Current Share Price [View article]
    Same can be said about Nokia.

    Both were passed by and their sales will only get worse when Google Glass is released. Glass also has a phone on it, which people seem to forget.

  • BlackBerry: A Definite Buy At Its Current Share Price [View article]
    Unfortunately, Blackberry now has been labeled by most investors as old school keyboard technology.
    The smart phone market is now just to saturated for Blackberry to breakout and reinvent itself. They have to piggy back on Android to run many apps which is basically a good ad for Android not BB.

    You are better off picking a new growing sector to put your money in. Solar and EV are better bets for low priced stocks that could grow very fast.

    If you want to play the phone sector, the Google Glass company HIMX is still dirt cheap and ready to spike when Glass is released.!

  • 3 Insiders Are Selling Apple [View article]
    I am guessing they are also worried about the new look of IOS7 and zero new stunning products, only enhancements.

    From all the articles I have been reading, the new IOS7 text will be harder to read for a couple of reasons. Thinner font and no text shadows.

    Also, the new Apple icon image and colors are now flat and violently bright.

    If the IOS7 turns very bad like the coverflow-less iTunes release, than Apple will have a HUGE nightmare and a customer revolt on their hands.

    I hope on the final release of IOS7 will have:

    1. Global hue, saturation, and contrast color controls for the icons.
    2. Shadow on-off and shadow size control for text and icons.

    Adding these in the final release or having them on the back-burner just in case of a bad reception, would be good insurance that Apple could do.

  • Why Ford Is Performing Wonderfully [View article]
    "Why Ford Is Performing Wonderfully"

    You need to tell this to the out-of-control Tesla investors. Ford stock SHOULD be doing better than Tesla, yet the cool-aid drinkers are loving this company which won't have another car out for years!

    Ford currently has tons of new cars out - C-max Hybrid, C-max Energi, Fusion Hybrid, Focus Electric, Fusion Energy

    The only bad thing about the Ford models are they are priced higher than Toyota, Hyundai, Honda and Kia.

  • Smartphones And Tablets: Winning Is All About Ecosystems Where Apple And Google Dominate [View article]
    Long Microsoft. You got a contract out on Ballmer?

    Ballmer is still a pine tree, nothing grows under him! Microsoft is doomed as long as he is embedded there.

  • Why Apple Is Not Dead [View article]
    "Apple has been at the top long enough."

    With your logic Berkshire Hathaway, Google, IBM, Priceline, Washington Post, Autozone, Netflix, Mastercard, Chipotle and other high flyers should also go in the toilet.

    Also, how can it be a race to the bottom if Apple sells the cheap phones only to the third World markets with about a billion new customers? They would be stupid not to go after this market.

    And sorry but BB10 is a dog with fleas, it is old technology and few apps. Nothing new about that phone. At least Nokia is going after the photographer sector with the 1020.

    Try pushing the BB10 on another blog that has not read their reviews.

  • SolarCity's Stock Should Continue To Rise As Solar Becomes More Affordable [View article]
    I would not buy SolarCity for the same reason I would not buy Tesla.
    They are both cult stocks that are followed by Musk lovers. I wonder how much of SolarCity stock ownership is based on people following Musk and not the company numbers?

    I find your article has gaping holes in it. It is mostly based on information cherry picked from SolarCity employees and not independent industry sources.

    To start, Shorebreak is the largest solar installer in the state of California. SolarCity is 4th and Sunpower is not much of a player in commercial and residential installations, they do mostly large solar farms.

    Also, you totally failed to mention that SolarCity has delisted projects in California which is a big flag for how solar companies are doing.

    There are a lot of other Solar Companies out there that are just as good an investment, and they are not linked to Musk and Tesla which can be very good or very bad depending on Musk's popularity.

    Here are the 2013 California Solar installations and companies from the California Solar Initiative (CSI):

    Other World solar stats:

  • OmniVision Technologies - Looking At The Big 'Picture' And Diversifying Away From Apple [View article]
    There are a ton of image-sensor companies out there. Apple could EASILY eat a couple for lunch for their phones and watches.

    I personally like CMOSIS. CMOSIS does sensors for Leica's high-end cameras. It would be a fairly cheap pick-up for Apple.

    Also, OmniVision Technologies still is far behind Canon and Nikon sensor output and with reduced point & shoot camera sales the competition to get in smart phones and other new devices will be intense.

  • Beyond Range Anxiety: The EV's Next Challenge [View article]
    "so average fueling for ICE is closer to 10-15 minutes. and average of $50-80."

    I can put a full tank of gas in my car in about 3-4 minutes for 65 dollars worth of gas. It all depends on the pumps geared speed. Some can be really slow, but most gas pumps are pretty fast.

    Why do EV car owners even care about this? Most ICE people I see at gas stations are inside getting coffee, lotto tickets, water, news papers and snacks. They spend more time buying this stuff than the gas. The same will be true for a EV owner at a charging station.

    One of the reasons people are inside buying stuff is they don't want to breath the gas fumes. In California these fumes are deadly, since the gas is full of a lot of clean burning chemicals.

    Car Charging Group should partner with Starbucks and get some chargers in their parking lots. People spend an average of about 20-25 minutes drinking coffee and playing with their iPad or laptop. It would be a win-win since more people could look at the Tesla and other EVs and ask the owner questions, which would promote even more sales. And there are a lot of rich people that go to Starbuck's, Pete's and other high-end coffee shops.

    Here is a video of a truck pumping diesel. You can time how long it takes to fill the huge tanks. It is pretty darn fast.

  • What Is Apple's 'Not-So-Secret' Hedge Fund Up To Now? [View article]
    "I always like to read a good article on Apples cash accumulation."

    I wish Apple would buy the companies that would add massive value to their current products. They have the money to do this.

    I can think of a lot of companies I would love to see Apple buy...

    1. GoPro Camera would greatly enhance the usage of iPhotos and image apps like PhotoShop on the OS platform. GoPro would also be great PR since it is now used on almost every outdoor TV show. Just search GoPro on YouTube. Would give Apple that outdoor rouge sports image that is popular with the outdoor mac users.

    2. Leica would lock down the best lens producer for their SmartPhones and add some of the best geospatial mobile mapping tools on the market for map gis data collection and gps location updating.

    3. ESRI could add powerful GIS business mapping tools to their Map apps, basically leap frogging Google Earth and Bing Maps.

    4. Large online merchant processing companies if they go into banking.

    5. More App ad companies to compete with Google and Publicis -Omnicom Group Inc.

    6. More movie and TV rights for their Apple TV expansion.

    They could buy all these and still have billions left.
