  • Axion Power: Out Of The PIPE And Into The Light - Part II [View article]
    Viaa-
    Clearly the stock price is a problem.

    But, for every sale there was a buyer. Some persons have gobbled up huge amounts of the shares. We know who the sellers are; we do not know who the buyers are. One can assume that the buyers of such prodigious amounts of shares know what they are doing and are not likely to sell quickly.

    The Axion story/battery is a good story and if you follow it, you will see that the market for exactly what the battery does is emerging in California and New York legislation.

    Actually, the pairing of this specific battery and solar panels is a match made in heaven.

    The letter is positive considering all of the renewable sources that need greater consistency and that could include regulation. Am I being too positive?

    User 39-

    Rereading your list of comments gives an interesting picture of someone who is intimately involved in the Axion situation.

    Thank you for your contributions.

    Hi 46-

    I think you are right; it is getting ugly.

    I just hope something constructive comes out of it.

  • Apple: Too Many Upside Catalysts For The Stock To Go Down [View article]
    Google glass represents a perfect window into Google's culture, which has to do with being extremely inventive....for it's own sake.

    Look at the their ideas; self driving cars, etc. Wonderful ideas; with not so much practical application and not so much expertise in execution of an entire line of integrated consumer products.

    Google has done one thing well. They remind me of Microsoft.

    I agree. This is a lot of trouble to go through to have the sun power something that stays in your pocket.


    Something else is afoot.

  • Corporate Cash Balances Continue To Grow: Especially At Major Tech Companies [View article]
    Let's see. I'm running a multiple hundred billion dollar tech corporation that has the opportunity to expand and needs to hire people to expand...and these are well educated or highly skilled people to whom I'm willing to and am paying an excellent wage and benefits.

    And, I decide to not expand, because I...am worried about a minimum wage increase? ...am worried about having to provide health care coverage to people I'm already providing coverage to?

    Where is the logic to this argument?

    And, big government and big business are not peas and carrots everywhere; Germany has huge government and huge export businesses.

    America is close to the bottom of taxation rates and close to the bottom of providing a safety net process in healthcare. Seeing that we are also close to the bottom in education, I'd say that there is something wrong with the process because the sides are not communicating with each other to solve the problems that they country faces.

    That they are not communicating is not likely Obama's fault. Everything about his performance with other countries leaders show that he is willing to move off the normal position of presidential power in order to reach an agreement...see him bowing to other leaders, etc.

    We face a serious problem; the opposition to power is run by people with short term interests and an inability to understand, or to deal with, the complexities of the situations we face in the country.

    BTW, I'm not particularly liberal; I'm pragmatic.

  • Why Apple's China Mobile Launch Was A Flop [View article]
    I saw the title of the article; it was unnecessarily provocative.

    As I'm tired of hysteria and people pushing overly emotionally based thinking about Apple, either positive or negative, I decided to not read the article.

    Then, my curiosity got the better of me and I saw the author.

  • Apple's China Mobile Sell-Off Creates An Attractive Buying Opportunity [View article]
    Investing in a company, or selling shares in a company whose shares are above 500/share because of the number of people in a picture is the height of stupidity.

    Where is an investment thesis?

    I'm amazed that so may Apple and Sirius shareholders live and die by this type of hysteria. I thought it was just because Sirius was cheap. Now, I'm beginning to come to the idea that many if not most people who invest...shouldn't. I guess that what is meant by the retail investor, said so disparagingly.

    I'm done with speculative stocks. I hold FCEL and the usual associated culprits...though I'm out of PLUG right now..and AXPW.

    It's enough.

    Thanks,

    Hal-
    All of the information in the articleStock referenced is at least 6 moths old.

    Here is what management could say...but if you are following the situation, you know all of this.

    'We absolutely thought that we would have sales. You know we are about 70% filed to capacity until 2016, and new sales will put us over the top. But, sales have not happened on our time line, so we are waiting for closure of sales from our pipeline, which includes over 80 mW from Europe and 50mW from the US.

    'There are tremendous opportunities coming to fruition in CA and NY; opportunities that could keep us busy for many years and replace the POSCO business. To tell you the truth, either fuel cells will become a significant part of the grid, or they won't. But, from all we can see happening around the world, and from the regulations that have been and are being developed, it is very reasonable for us to believe that fuel cells will be part of the grid architecture in the future.

    'Fuel cell stocks got hot and we saw an opportunity to bring our cash up to about 4 years burn rate; and if we don't use it for bur rate, we can use it for building out projects and research and development.'
