    I truly enjoyed the enthusiasm of your description of our battery being needed and prevailing, even with another company as owner. I went through this with a company called General Magic, which became OnStar.

    General Magic used voice recognition and a Siri-like intelligence that reduced the staffing at certain types of call centers. GM came on as a client and when General Magic went bkpt, the process became OnStar.

    Would you be willing to be very concrete in why you believe so strongly in the inevitability of our battery prevailing, with a focus on applications where the battery is essential for the success of the application?

    Welcome aboard and thanks.

    This:
    "BMW has teamed with Axion Power investigating such a Pb-C alternative to today's AGM (absorbed glass mat) battery. Its current Auto Start Stop continues with the latter technology."
    is from 2012, correct?

    Ranma-I echo your sentiment. People are making themselves crazy over this. It is a bet on an idea; which often comes a cropper...but sometimes becomes a wealth maker. It was never a sure thing...it was always just a bet on a great idea.

    The best advice is sit back and watch the show.

    What the management team has done has been pretty amazing. They have turned a wild assed idea into a revolutionary product.

    They have only developed an actual production line to make the product several months ago.

    Shortly after they stopped making the parts with pinking shears and a bunch of high school dropouts whose idea of a job is to cut cloth by hand, BMW said we want to see if a second and established battery manufacturer can make this thing.

    People on this board bet on this product when they did not even understanding that an actual manufacturing production line that could turn out the product in a modern ...machine made... way was a fantasy. We, you and me, did not really do enough DD. WE believed in the idea. Really, if you knew that the main battery components were made by a group standing around cutting cloth by hand and that how to do it by machine was way off in the future somewhere, would you have invested??? Not me.

    Yet, I believe in the product and in the team. There is nothing to communicate, so they do not communicate.

    What will happen will happen and no amount of carping will speed the process. We will know if investing...no, betting on AXION was a good idea by 2015, maybe before.

    We keep forgetting that the doors are open, several companies are using the product as it was intended, and BMW has apparently decided to use the batteries.

    If you want to sell your shares sell them. Drive the price down and I and others will buy them at MUCH lower prices. I still believe AXION is a good bet. I've given up on the idea that it was an investment. Just another of the lessons I've learned in my life. But, the punchline is still not here.

    I think it is very difficult to predict the bottom. In situations like this, I buy when sp feels so low that it feels like it can't go any lower, rather than at an sp price that is fixed on my mind. So, it's more intuitive, for me, at least..

    We are in for a bad time re the sp. IMHO, we haven't felt the bad time yet...there is no real panic yet...just disappointment. On no news over a longer period of time from right now, we will get capitulation...not there yet. People still have hope. I'll buy when everyone here gives up.

  • More on FuelCell (FCEL): FQ2 beats solidly across the board as total sales jumped 75% Y/Y. Net losses narrowed as margins widened to 5.5% from 0.01%, aided by a diverse sales mix. Product sales, which make up the bulk of revenue, jumped 84% to $34.4M due to higher fuel cell kit sales and revenue from its Bridgeport fuel cell park project. Service and license revenues were up 19%, while advanced technologies contract revenue nearly doubled. Shares +12.2% AH. [View news story]
    From your mouth to God's ear.

    I am looong and strooong. I've been in and out of the stock for what seems like a decade. This time when it went down I backed up the truck. It is an incredible story. I was really sold when they made electricity and heat fron onion off gassing.

    I stopped reading when you used the cost of food at a chain as an analog of food prices in general.

    There is your answer about why Telsa's stock has been so successful; it is a success for the program.

    I have no doubt that it has been bouyed up by the same team that drove up the Indexes several years ago.

    I've let him know I'm not pleased several times over the past 2 years. Events occur and there is no PR. I agree, others should contact him as you see fit.
