    More good news, yet stock price is stagnant. As previously noted GE has invested $130 M in Aone; however it is reported that GE is investing close to 1/2 billion in their own plant dedicated to mfg. batteries.
    Initially I thought that GE might initiate a "TAKE OVER" of AONE, however when I learned that GE was building their own battery mfg facility, it dawned on me that they just might take AONE's proprietary (assumed patented) data and let then AONE go bankrupt!!

  • GE's plans to invest $170M in boosting battery production has helped send A123 Systems (AONE -5.8%) shares below the $1 threshold yet again. GE owns a sizable stake in A123, courtesy of multiple investments.   [View news story]
    I Also can not comprehend why the stock price would decline after the news releases that: (1) GE PLANS on investing a $170M cash, and (2)China is raising its plan to subsidize the production of 5 million electric CARS??
    It looks like many shares have been traded on some inside knowledge that would offset the apparent favorable news!!
