    This will work out OK, only if there is a sales announcement along with the split. HYGS went through this and it's a $12-$30 stock because the few sales $s are divided by the few # of shares. If the RS works, and we get sales, later there can be a regular split. Plug didn't RS and exploded. It's just about sales.

    Re TG and Vani; I just don't get it. Especially Vani. He is Sales Manager. I do not understand how he can show up at work; I do not understand why he has not been fired. I do not understand why he gets a bonus.

    OTOH there may be no one in the wings who can produce any better. Still, his salary should be cut and no bonus.

    My concern is without sales, why would the shares stay at the split adjusted $ figure? And, without sales, why would anyone buy shares at $5.00/share to 'finance' the company?

    Still, at the low share figure, ePower sales and a few other sales like the most recent one would keep the story going.

    IMHO we need to vote for the split. It is immaterial if the company becomes successful. In that case they will split again.

    Without the split, we are not going to get any financing. Again, for new shareholders the stars in the eyes are $$ sales-profit potential/# shares.

    We are the old story. How do you think the old shareholders of HYGS feel when they see the shares at $20.00?

    It was no accident that TC stated they had 800,000 CCs. It was a portending of a future or ???

  • Missed The Recent Surge? Apple Stock Forecast Indicates Better Buying Opportunities Ahead [View article]
    ultra-
    I have many shares and will have 6x as many, so I want your 250-300 prediction to be true.

    Why did you pick those numbers? Any fundamentals or do you think it will just be lemmings piling on?

    Your reasoning is OK; except factors charge a % that reduces net.

  • Department of Energy plans to offer $4B in loan aid for renewable energy [View news story]
    The companies to benefit here are FCEL and HYGS: "advanced electric grid technology and storage". Advanced electric grid and storage is what they do. AXPW and other battery manufacturers that do grid storage and frequency regulation will also be helped.

  • FuelCell Energy CEO sees first big sale in Europe this year [View news story]
    Ahh-

    The question: wait till it drifts lower before buying? Or, buy now with the confidence that sales will occur and the questions about future sales will be answered? Or, wait fir teh sales and miss the bump and beginning of the run?

    There must be someone here who knows more about patents that I do: If the OTR is just now being patented, it's likely that is part of the 'hold-up'.

    You patent an idea with a drawings and/or a primitive working model. You don't build a finished model and use it publicaly and then patent it...if I remember this correctly.

  • FuelCell's Backlog Faces A Steep Cliff [View article]
    I don't think this author realizes the size of the deals they are into now. IIRC Dominion order was $125MM.

  • FuelCell's Backlog Faces A Steep Cliff [View article]
    FCEL has sales to POSCO until 2016. These fuel cells are booked and contracted for and account for a good bit of FCEL's back log.

    FCEL will stay busy on this backlog through 2016...2016. This is early 2014. Do your DD! It's all been discussed and put in tables. Go to the FCE site and read.

    In the next 2-3 years if FCEL does not replace POSCO, they will have a problem. This has been known for the past 2-years and is why FCEL is languishing at the price it is. What is in this article is NOT new news to anyone who has done their DD.

    Now, if you are invested in FCEL and have done your DD, you believe they will replace POSCO with new work from the US, Europe and South America, as well as getting their 3% on multiple hundred million $$ or billion dollar sales in Asia. And, they will be OK.

    FCEL's CEO says they have work coming in and based on their partners' needs and sales...this makes sense.

    When the work comes in and it is added to the POSCO work, FCEL is profitable and will likely be profitable for several years prior to POSCO ending.

    So, short and maybe make some $$ from this price and likely get caught in a squeeze when they announce new work. Trying to time a stock like this is IMHO just stupid for a retail investor.

    FCEL is a belief stock. You own it if you believe there will be a need for a distributed grid using renewables in the future.

    If you understand the company and the stock and the company's place in the grid of the future, buy what you can afford and wait.
