    Thanks.

    Exited both yesterday in the AM. Waiting for a pullback on FCEL into the 2.25 range; will begin to step back in at 2.50 slowly. It's all about sales at FCEL.

    OK...OK...here is a sign of life. Might be time to snap up some of those .10 shares. Axion is your next PLUG if you want to get in early.

    Stealing a page from hydrogen/fuel cells, the public needs to see a group of companies, battery related and turbine related, that are marching toward profitability and reducing GHGs.

  • Are Silver And Gold Ready For New Lows? [View article]
    Avi-

    Sorry you are leaving here. I will look at your site.

    You'd won me over many weeks ago. It is clearly about sentiment, not fundamentals. You can see this so clearly in the run up of the fuel cell companies. The stories have been intact for years, and they are all still losing $$. But, they have become emotionally charged.

    Best,

    Gordon

    I've been in the middle of the PLUG/FCEL/BLDP/HYGS group for years in and out. All burned investors. At one point PLUG was over 150$$ per share, then for pennies. FCEL very close to the same ups and downs. HYGS totally burned the original investors with a massive reverse split.

    What I learned from watching and investing after the split was, if the idea is good, you can make money by buying in after the split. For instance, I believe there are only 90MM HYGS shares; that;s why the stock is so high. So, 2nd worse case scenario with AXION, I'll buy back in.

    What is happening now is that fuel cells are gaining traction, in general. The companies are getting closer to profitability with very large sales. If the situation continues they will all be profitable in the next year.

    What is happening right now is momentum. People don't want to miss out so they are piling in. It's not a good bet at these prices. But, you never know when it will end; look at TLSA or AMZN.

    BTW, the CEO of PLUG is a complete PR maven; understands how to pump the stock.

    OK. so what does it have to do with AXION?

    The whole hydrogen/FCEL sector is hot. The battery sector is not hot.

    Then, nothing happens without sales and a person running the company who understands PR.

    The CEO at HYGS is the next level down from the CEO at PLUG re PR. BLDP and FCEL do not understand PR, or do not care to utilize it to its fullest.

    So, some sales will help, but likely will not project the stock up the way we wish. Sales to several sectors and closing on profitability will do that.

  • IDC Smartphone Forecast Is Bullish For Apple [View article]
    I think it is interesting, and do not know what to make of it that CarPlay is not creating more push.

    I believe it will be tied into payments from the phone.

    At some point, there will be press back against the phone's pushing ads. I do not know if this will be the one that causes it.

    Much bigger news re Apple and its new car and phone interconnection.

    The eternal question, WTH is buying all these shares?

  • Samsung Has Become Apple [View article]
    This is a pretty concrete understanding and description of the companies. The truth is that Samsung will never be Apple when looked at more holistically.

    This level of analysis is rampant in SA. It is the equivalent of apples and pears both have skins, and seeds, and skin...so apples and pear are the same thing.

    Well the both are fruit, and Apple and Samsung are both device makes. That they are device makers is the extent to which the are the same.

    well, you obviously have no emotional interest in this stock; so we should follow your purely rational advice...right? :-)

  • 10 Reasons To Avoid Apple's Shares [View article]
    #11. You believe Michael Blair is providing a well rounded assessment that is not really just supportive of his short position; i.e. MB is your friend and he is just trying to help you.

    #12. You believe that thought generated by science can explain anything important about the stock market.

    #13. You are unable to connect the dots; dots related to the Board, TC and Apple working on the biggest problem we face in credit cards and commerce, the lack of security of the current system, by developing each component of the security system and including them in its newest products. So, the processor speed and the fingerprint recognition and iBeacons are just put in there for no reason.

    I could go on, but the truth is that you are only doing your best to forward your specific agenda. I wish you the best of luck with your investments.
