  • CEO pay vs. performance [View news story]
    Actually you are wrong. In principle for a publicly traded company the CEOs primary job is to maximize shareholder value. Otherwise why else do they exist?

    On the publication date SGG closed at 41.69. Now it's 29.07 and is 75% off the 5 year high.

    Thinking of going in now.

  • Is First Solar Set Up To Fail? [View article]
    idiot article from an idiot author. The same tired arguments as years past.

    FSLR has a rock solid balance sheet, is hitting all the promised technology improvements, and it taking steps to improve business prospects for new projects (yieldco).

  • Here's Why I'm Buying SolarCity And Selling First Solar [View article]
    It's not about efficiency in the utility scale market, it's energy per area. Read the latest FSLR presentation and you might start to understand this concept.

  • Here's Why I'm Buying SolarCity And Selling First Solar [View article]
    ^^^ This,

    and the author didn't pay attention to First Solar latest quarterly presentation...

    Sell one of the only Solar companies that consistently makes money and buy the solar company that losses the most money.

  • Ballantyne Strong Isn't Looking So Strong [View article]
    Then why do insiders continue to buy a large quantity of shares on the open market? They have been doing this periodically for years.

  • Worst Of Breed Is An Insult To Other mREITs: Javelin Mortgage Investment [View article]
    Might be a buy here as management is buying open market shares. Can't imagine them spending $150K of their hard earned money for a stock this going to go down.

  • JinkoSolar Holding beats by $0.48, beats on revenue [View news story]
    Yeah um, the recent history related to Asian solar ADRs isn't very good. JKS seems to be on firm footing but STP, YGE, Hanergy. The list goes on

  • Mississippi utility withdraws as backer of Southern's clean coal project [View news story]
    You couldn't possibly be more wrong about that. Coal is being replaced by cleaner carbon solutions like NG. It has nothing to do with "renewables".
