  • After Hour Gainers / Losers [View news story]
    Interesting how no one is talking about the other stocks, but only TSLA... THIS is something to take notice of and a hint as to why this, some say overly priced stock, will continue to be bloated.

    I'd say it is because TSLA, along with SCTY, are going to swallow up the entire electricity / utility and auto markets... TSLA offers more than just nice cars made with integrity; they offer batteries... which will go into houses, commercial buildings and many other applications. TSLA is more a technology company.

    In terms of the car aspect; they are building a recharging infrastructure which will beckon the compliance of all other car dealerships... because they got there first... and they are just beginning to stretch their effort across the world; now in Asia.

    TSLA will soon be a $1,000 per share stock ( more because of the network, the batteries, the technology and equally a fleet of 22nd century cars ).... and SCTY will probably go even higher ( considering it may be the next utility model being reproduced wherever nations desire to cease polluting their environment ).

    I see Ron's 'WiseInvestor' all over financial websites with the same vitriol... he must be on someone's payroll.

    Perhaps Robert Wagner is one of those individuals paid by the energy czars to forward obfuscating arguments regarding renewable / clean / smart / non-polluting energy solutions.

    Q:

    Does it matter if SCTY's stock price is $100 or $1.00?

    Considering stocks are purchased at several times their actual valuation, the concern isn't so much if the company will grow as the company plans on growing... but whether or not the standby speculator can make a gain with their speculative buy or sell.

  • SEC Halts Trading Of Growlife: Here's Why [View article]
    It's a sad case for these 'companies.'

    A large segment of the population is still ignorant of the healing properties cannabis oil has when applied to the human body; cannabinoid receptors for one.

    ( google "cannabis cures cancer" and such for a run-through of reality )

    What is more, most of these 'companies' are traded without hard evidence of their business models and actual performance. I was a dreamer looking forward to the 'change' with the approach of holistic healing and the use of cannabis as an answer to many issues, both internally ( medicine ) and externally ( using the fiber for clothes, rope, etc. ).

    It is a naturally occurring industry ( it is a plant / weed ) waiting to be capitalized, but far too much $$ is made with synthetics derived from oil.... oh those oil loving rascals and their earth polluting capital ventures...

    If the kountry continues in the direction of fossil fuels, perhaps fresh air can be sold like water is today.

  • Balance Sheets Mean Little To Green Economy Stocks: Why I Hate Book Value Analysis [View article]
    I replied a few days ago but my reply was deleted due to links to sources... so I guess you'll have to take my word for it.. here is my re-reply:

    "I'm all for new technology, who isn't?"

    A: those who hold an interest in oil and coal are not for new technology... unless they are already financially in place to gain from the new technology, then perhaps they'll consider getting out of their old-world energy systems. ( I included a link to an article proving oil and coal energy companies resist developing cleaner alternatives )

    "The point is the US Gov't shouldn't be a VC firm."

    I agree, the true spirit of government ( good shepherds ) should be to defend the powerless rather than promote or defend business ( hired hands ), but do you not recognize the true form of government this kountry is? Just like all other empires before it, big government is about commerce ( buying and selling of things and even people )... there's a way to see what direction government would like to go by the dole they are willing to throw at the person looking for their fortune in the Amerikan dream. ( I linked to the SBA, where you can find the proof that the state is the one leading the direction of commerce and money making policy )

    "It is spending a fortune of other people's money of(sic) a science that isn't even close to be ready for prime time."

    Firstly, this government creates money out of thin air and also creates 'bills,' and just like the basis of that term bill means, it is a 'bill' for service and attached as an interest bearing debt on the backs of the citizenry... I partially agree with you on your point. As for the science, the solar and wind machines have already been proven ( I included a link to several individuals who are off the grid and harnessing more than enough energy to power their homes and appliances using wind and solar power ).

    "We are blocking drilling and funding wind and solar. This is pure political payback at tax payer expense."

    I am not blocking anyone from doing anything, so the use of the term "we" when speaking of the hired hands who claim to 'lead' me or the people living on this land... well, I didn't consent to be governed by them so I am not part of them nor the 'we' you speak of, but I know what you mean. I think it is archaic to still be pulling tar out of the ground and continuing to pollute the air, water and ecosystem when all the while there has been a blazing sun showering free energy since the dawn of time... and folks like Nicola Tesla HAS ALREADY discovered ways to harness the free energy in the ether and the earth... he also figured out how to transmit the energy / electricity without wires and such. ( links to Tesla's inventions and patents )

    I agree Mr. Wagner, then whey are you arguing against the likes of SCTY ( new energy solutions ) on other articles?

    The issue is energy independence, and not as a whole like one country independent of another ( which isn't a bad idea, btw lol ), but each person independent of their government. Why has the Amerikan mind become so dependent on their government yet can hypocritically accuse other governments and political systems as 'communist' or any other political buzzword?

    There is a grand opportunity in what wind and solar solutions provide, yet the Amerikan mind is so negative and clinging to polluting sources.

    What I'd like to know is: Why can't the solar panel customer / buyer living in the city be FREE from having to be connected to grid? Just in case something happens or because independence is capital's worse nightmare?

    Perhaps because climate change is droned into people's minds via the mass hysterical media... and it is a talking point at the water cooler between breaks.

    My point being: "no body knows what happened so long ago nor what will happen in the future; both sides are partially correct when guessing and mostly wrong when predicting."

    As for people desiring NOT to be breathing polluted air and the focus on using what is already free and clean ( sun's energy ), that is the 'new.'

    The battle to obfuscate and lie from skeptics or people holding interests in the old energy model will continue, but the results are already coming in from those newly adapting... it is going to be a landslide.

    Mr. Wagner, with all due respect, how in the world can anyone claim a 600,000 year statistic? No man can. Let us leave the blind belief in the debatable and speak clearly.

    As to what politicians say and even also what financial writers write and proclaim as fact and truth... well, people lie and people believe lies... and most are found to be hypocrites at least once in their lives.

    If only more people can see beyond the narrative of political debate and rhetoric, if only they can see clearly that they are believing every wallop that comes from the donkey's / elephant's mouth... without realizing those two mascots merely represent both hands of the single party.

    No wonder more people are waking up to the collusion of both the red and blue teams ( what is this, a game people confuse as people leadership? ) are the same single team... the colors, after all, are red, white and blue, right?

  • SolarCity: Fears Are Overblown And Valuation Is Inexpensive [View article]
    That's the sad place of the consumer; sifted and sought after by those who can beguile them for gain.

    The 'monthly payment' is how anything priced above the $20 teevee purchase threshold is sold these days.

    Folks fall for it everyday in front of sleazy car salesmen and many were bit by this luring tactic when buying a mortgage with little or nothing down.

    The consumer needs a financial education.

    I find it comical that some folks argue 'against' the likes of SCTY when they get any kickback from the bureaucracy... yet utilities are natural monopolies, layered in bureaucracy.

    Although some utility companies are publicly traded, they are parent-owned / held as a public utility. The consumer hasn't a choice to draw his energy from anyone other than the sole provider in his area.

    What kind of free market do people talk about when the fact is the consumer has no choice of which "pizza" he's going to buy when there's only one pizza pie shop he could choose from?

    Is it only me who sees this or are folks confused with the bizzaro reality shrouded in nationalistic platitudes or empty rhetoric?

    Google search the following quotation for further exploratory reading of reality 101.

    "In the United States of America, public utilities are often natural monopolies because the infrastructure required to produce and deliver a product such as electricity or water is very expensive to build and maintain. As a result, they are often government monopolies, or if privately owned, the sectors are specially regulated by a public utilities commission."

    Another 'tell' that things aren't as they seem when discussing these utilities is the fact that retirement pensions are payed from the state's coffers.

    To me, the ideal would be to own your own energy system and not having to be attached to the grid while being subject to a limit as to how many solar panels you can have on your roof or how much energy you can produce.

    How is the individual to do business with an energy monopoly, I mean a utility?

    Looking after a friend's house he was flipping, the guy across the street and I were talking about houses and things, and he shares with me how he 'was' going to get his own solar panel system, but the utility company had a bunch of limits and 'do not dos' for him to abide by. If he were to produce too much energy, he would have to remove panels. I found this quite interesting, but it didn't surprise me, for I recognize that the city dwelling subject / citizen has the right to abide by what the moneyed system dictates them to abide by without a quibble or a tort.

    To the consumer who 'owns' their own abode ( or is current with their mortgage payment to the debt slavery system - who are the mass majority living in cities and suburbs ), they can experience a respite in their monthly toil to meet their cost of living requirements.... a drop in their energy bill could lead to more cable channels, or upgrading to the sports package... or possibly the uniform for Billy's little league baseball dreams.

    To the more savvy consumer who is ahead of the debt load, perhaps they can 'buy' the system and not wince at the regulations and limits the benevolent utility company puts on them, but look forward to the years they can start realizing a 'savings' ( I call it keeping your money, not saving it, that never made sense ) and can put away for their retirement into a 401k which may or may not come under attack the next time the thieves in CONgress up short with their schemes... I mean their benevolent legislation to run an honorable kountry.

    To people like me, I don't see a solution in most of the companies out there, either private or publicly traded, for they capitalize on the system as it is and leverage their knowledge against the vast majority of them who support the entire apparatus.... those called consumers.

    I know in this little rant I'm being rude, but let's call things as they truly are, shall we?
