  • Axion Power Concentrator 77: Beginning March 15, 2012, Bangwhiz's Article, Selling The PbC Battery - It's Not Easy Being Green! [View instapost]
    Once I was invested in a micro-cap that was local to me and I stopped in to say hi. Then a slick willy type gave me a grand tour and kept dropping what seemed like inside info to me. My meeting concluded with him telling me I should invest more if I'm able. I sold the next week. Thankfully so since it later turned out to be a fraud.

    I'd be more worried had they pampered you =)

    JP,

    Maxim PIPEd Axion and then advised others on how to games the latest offering. The pps drop from $8 isn't a weird coincidence. Why Axion ever laid in bed with that firm is beyond me.

    Ranma,

    You are spot on. Low volume and upcoming placement is a killer. That is why most would not touch Axion at this time. It's kind of a chicken and egg problem, but sadly JP's ZRPSOD theory isn't gaining traction anymore. This board used to have a big bad wolf in the PIPErs (and all others before them) but now there is noone to blame yet the stock languishes even in the face of brighter prospects. Axion pr is terrible and JP likely won't be writing Axion articles that get 300+ comments anymore. Maya's theory about Axionistas selling to each other and playing bumper cars seems to be more likely. These concentrators do little to attract new money and maybe at some level only exist to comfort old money and/or agitate it.

    Maya,

    The only Axionistas who are up are those who collected salaries in New Castle. Sure some traders made a few bucks flipping stock here and there - but at all-time lows no holder can claim to have a profit.

    And yes, the bottom feeders near a dime are even now very upset. And those who go great deals near 25 cents are hurting as bad as the rest of the early gang. Heck, once your down 70% it feels similar to 90%+

    Then again we have an uplist and an IPO coming and there should be a volume increase - and new institutional class strongs hands in this name (or not). You should ask your broker his thoughts, free warrants as an enticement too.

    JP,

    New money also wants to see a "leader" who can rally the troops. TG has lost the ship at this point. There are very few, if any, who think that Mr. Granville is the right guy for the next 10 years let alone 10 months; imho.

    As you have said before, the micro-hybrid will just be getting going by decade's end. I think many have doubts (about TG's communication style, age, etc) that he is the right guy as we head toward the latter half of this decade.

    Also I think most here have invested on the words of JP and not TG, that says something about communication coming out of New Castle.

    John,

    You have lost close to a million dollars on Axion and I know many others who have lost well beyond 6 figures and sometimes near 7 figures.

    They all have told me that you were the reason they held and/or doubled down during uncertainty in the past, although I know you didn't want that responsibility.

    Anyhow I don't think there was a ton of fear by the Axion army these past years, naivety sure. Heck, volume has always been weak so there wasn't a mass exodus.

    Anyhow as the resident shepherd here you may want to choose your words/guidance carefully since there is a new round of Axionistas that have once again put in 6+ figures of retirement money with the hopes that its darkest before dawn (or whatever metaphor you prefer).

    But sometimes it's just plain dark and there are times that you might want to concede that instead of reminding others about the losses they brought upon themselves.

    I agree that Axion should not have done one-off loss producing Sales of the PbC. But there seems to be commentary that Axion could have done more 6 and 7 figure type small profitable deals. A half dozen of those and Axion's burn rate could have been cut in half. Yes, I like the risk / reward from the current penney level. But I still, like others have said on this forum, would like some candid commentary about what the status of the oems are and what's the reason Axion didn't to more in the interim to avoid massive share printing. I don't fear the next placement and I'm somewhat happy about the change in management. But I do hope that communication from Axion gets much better as we approach the next half of this decade.

  • Axion Power Concentrator 198: Jan. 16: Axion Power PbC Batteries Continue To Demonstrate Effectiveness For Railroad Applications [View instapost]
    Umm; ... "a ride in the rebuilt BMW sedan" and "when it hits the market in Europe later in this decade" makes me wonder if the PbC and US sales are even further off than we thought. =(

    Also since the JCI solution "is expected to hit the market first in Europe, in the 2016-'17 time frame" what does that mean for other solutions like ours? Can we infer JCI and BMW also have a relationship in place regarding their micro-hybrid rollout and they have planned it many years in advance?

    I keep reminding myself we only need a 5%+ niche and we'll be fat cats in the coming US micro-hybrid stop/start takeover. I also need to remind myself there will be MANY others sharing in this pie.

    Too bad XIDE went sour and East Penn isn't public, otherwise maybe we could get some press like this about our economical solution. Tough road when your a micro-cap with a micro-hybrid solution.

    Maya sadly the 100,000 comments is a small fraction of the dollars lost by Axionistas by a few magnitudes.

    Axion was the wrong micro-crap for such an effort.

    ii,

    Hard to say how much the BOD was complicit or not. But TG was the man making the statements of record and he put pen to paper on the PIPEing. Outside of JP I've seen few come to TG's defense.

    I personally suspect TG's portion of the blame cake (if that's what its called) is a nice chunk. But you are correct, there were other who enabled him. At least Mr. Averill has put his wallet behind Axion at different times. No other insiders seemed to even done that as far as we know.

    RB,

    Wow; EPower sentiment drives Axion now (somewhat). We really are scraping then. In my mind Epower is many years away from being a significant source of revenues. Their own survival will likely be more difficult than Axion's.

    RK,

    Please reconsider your motivations for leaving this forum. You are well read by many here and I'd suggest that it might be worth it to take few arrows now and then even when we ruffle each others feathers. I can understand if you think these pages are taking up too much time (I myself check-in less than I used to), however maybe you can afford a few minutes here and there when you do see things that need illumination. Thank you for all your efforts thus far.

    APM,
    I commend you for going down this path. I myself hinted at similar analysis but was told (by a few) that this would not help the remaining Axionistas.

    I kind of understand those that don't like the bad news shared - but then again these concentrators are supposed to be about crowd sourcing our due diligence.

    I'm surprised by all the "likes" to Bang's comment above. Either Axionistas have lost all faith or there are many here who feel TG isn't the right leadership. =(

    For those who hit "like" I hope to hear your logic. I still feel Axion the company and Axion the stock are on different trajectories but that may soon change as hopefully they both move forward and upward.

    JP,

    The elephant refers to the idea that up to 5M new shares will come into Axion next year (2.5M in a few weeks and 2.5 more if the warrants go in the money).

    I personally do not think all will be held strong, especially if Axion goes up 25%+. And I'd suspect that potentially up to a 1/4 or more will shake loose if profits are there to be harvested.

    In my mind 25% of the new 5M shares (i.e. 1.25M floating) is indeed an elephant for a Axionistas. Heck when you adjust for double count we only trade about 125k shares a month.

    Yes, I realize you're predicting strong hands among our new investors and also big volume (presumably from even more new investors - also strong hands?).

    However, you have predicted this before and it didn't come to pass. In fact larger volumes were indicative of sellers in the past. Also, my point in the post above referred to the fact that the potential volumes you cite will equal millions of dollar$ of new money (where will this come from?). You should know as well as anyone there isn't a ton of Axionistas money on the sidelines. Even right now there aren't too many getting in on the placement even with free warrants and a potential pps discount.

    Watching the stock drop over 90% in 3 years is not my "imagination" and indeed I did take many "elephant" bites. And I suspects there are more servings. I hope to be wrong and you to be right.
