  • Universal Display Is A Bet On The OLED Market [View article]
    Alpha Gen: Interesting article but no where do you seem to mention the competitive pressures of quantum dot display technology which Samsung and many others seem to be embracing as the potential 'next revolution' in large screen display technology.

    I believe that Samsung and a few others already have released quantum dot TV's and monitors. Quantum dot (QD) displays appear to have the potential for being cheaper yet may produce much more vibrant colors. Perhaps your research may be a bit dated which new QD technology may adversely affect OLED? Would like your feed back. Thanks

  • Energy Storage, Profiting From The Next Mega Market For The Power Industry [View article]
    NanoTech, I agree that with the re-emphasis on Global warming, CO2 reductions and the need for new efficient energy storage solutions that MVTG with its ERC pollution (CO2) recapture and utilization and fuel cell tech really seems to have a leg up on the competition world wide. Low cost Energy Storage, is a multi-Billion dollar potential industry in itself.

    For those who can afford the risk and have done the due diligence on the Canadian spec, MVTG and are long term type investors, the current price of MVTG would seem possibly to be a very favorable entry point.

    I know I intend to add to my MVTG stock holdings at today's price and am prepared to wait another six months or much sooner for more favorable announcements/grants/c... that may be announced from MVTG mgmt.

  • What's Happening With FuelCell Energy? [View article]
    Jonas Gramby, Now that you are the one that brought MVTG up: Have been recently adding more MVTG to my spec portion of my portfolio at .15 to .20 cents. Started my position with MVTG 2 years ago at .06 and sold some at .62 to .65 last year so am doing just fine, but thank you for your genuine concern in my welfare.

    Note: for those who do serious DD on fuel cell technologies, I still believe that MVTG's fuel cells (much less expensive, light weight, safer [non-hydrogen) with no need for expensive Hydrogen infrastructure) are by far superior, IMO, to any fuel cell type tech out there.

    Plus, MVTG has the CO2 pollution recapture tech and global patents which they can convert CO2 emissions from almost any fossil fuel burning plant/factory into viable and profitable chemicals, a Billions dollar potential mkt unto itself.

    As I have stated in the past, MVTG does have to prove itself with more grants/major contracts, which I believe will happen this year? We shall see, but I would much rather buy an inexpensive spec good fuel cell tech company (MVTG) with associations with Billion Dollar companies (Alstom and Lafarge:[one of world's largest cement companies]) and near million dollar grants from the Canadian gov't and wait to see what develops.

    Note: Unlike many fuel cell companies that dilute shareholders, no major dilution has occurred recently with MVTG and with 5 PhD's on their staff, MVTG has been very careful with cash mgmt with most capital needs coming from its CEO, larger companies and the Canadian gov't.

    Appears to be much going on behind the scenes at MVTG, from recent Global CO2 conferences (Singapore & Boston) they attended so we shall see if patience rewards as I believe the remainder of 2015 may prove very exciting for efficient and low cost Non-hydrogen fuel cells and MVTG's energy storage and amazing CO2 solutions for those who can afford the risk/reward and potential profits?

  • Where I Would Be A Buyer In The Fuel Cell Space [View article]
    George K, Of the three, BLDP seems to have the better mgmt and seems more engaged in advancing newer fuel cell technologies and at this point also appears to have the potential global fuel cell bus type contracts more or less to themselves.

    However, all three fuel cell companies, IMO, appear to be relying on older/antiquated type fuel cell technology.

    However a small Canadian spec fuel cell company, MVTG, with its much less expensive fuel cells (does not require an expensive PEM membrane), that does not rely on hydrogen (safer than hydrogen) and whose fuel cells are lighter weight also appears much more versatile and potentially profitable sooner?

    In addition to the many global fuel cell patents that MVTG has, MVTG also has the potential of another Billion dollar market and that is their patented ERC technology.

    This ERC technolgy enables almost any global fossil fuel burning plant/factory to install their ERC technology and convert harmful CO2 emissions that contribute to global pollution into many other viable and profitable chemicals like formates, (used in fertilizers and as a food preservative), methanol and syn gas, etc as well as a fuel for their proprietary more efficient fuel cells.

    Yes, MVTG needs to raise additional capital, but no significant dilution appears to be on the horizon and MVTG carefully manages cash flow and with offices in Vancouver, Hong Kong, and Berlin several foreign gov'ts also appear to be very interested in MVTG's technology.

    MVTG does need to land a few large contracts and or obtain more grants which as I understand are in the works. Fortunately, because of their association with Billion dollar companies like Alstom and Lafarge (one of the world's largest cement mfgr) and the fact that the Canadian gov't has already granted MVTG nearly one million dollar in grants, I believe based upon their PR releases that before the end of this year, if not much sooner, large potential contracts may come soon.

    If you believe in the fuel cell industry, in lessening global pollution (carbon recapture and utilization) and in alternative fuels and 'Greener' energy storage solutions; are diversified and can afford the risk/reward as a small portion of your portfolio, MVTG may prove to be a great addition.

  • China's rate cut fails to stop stock rout [View news story]
    It appears as if the Chinese real estate economy is still continuing a somewhat orderly decline in the past 12 months. Will this now 'bear stock market' in China exasperate the decline in real estate as well?
    If so, world markets may be more affected than anticipated.

    I also agree with earlier comments that the US Fed (and Europe/Japan) by maintaining 'zero/low' interest rates for too long appears to be setting up a real future fiasco and very inefficient capital flows not in favor of real needed cap ex spending.

    When the dance will stop is anyone's guess, 3 months or 3 years?, Low interest rates have continued much longer than I expected. Anyone venture a guess as to when the party ends and the printing presses stop or become ineffective?

    Note: Like many, I'm still in the market, with few viable options, but raising cash as circumstances warrants.

  • Getting Out Of FuelCell And Potentially Buying Ballard [View article]
    stocks for profit: Thank you for that correction, I should have referred to BLDP and PLUG and that MVTG's technology does not require the more expensive PEM membrane.

  • Athersys' (ATHX) CEO Gil Van Bokkelen on Q4 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    Thank you Uncle Bud and Dandisik for the info/thoughts.

    Uncle Bud, I know it's been a tortuous relationship with ATHX for you, but I hope you still hung on to some of your ATHX shares. I too believe that better days are ahead and will see what the next 3 to 9 months bring.

  • Getting Out Of FuelCell And Potentially Buying Ballard [View article]
    Brandon, I agree that of the two that BLDP appears to be the better pick and their mgmt recently seems more adept in managing cash flow/operating expenses and BLDP also seems more innovative in creating/improving their fuel cell technology.

    However, I believe a much superior fuel cell technology company is MVTG which although it is a spec (so do your due diligence: see below) seems to have two multi-billion type platform technologies:
    
    1. A safer (non-hydrogen) patented fuel cell, which is lighter weight and appears much less expensive, (does not require the expensive PEM membrane which FCEL and BLDP use), and can be used with multi "Greener" fuels and also in conjunction as a fuel cell source for

    2. MVTG's globally patented CO2 pollution emission reduction technology which can be installed on almost any global fossil fuel burning CO2 producing furnace/plant to convert harmful CO2 into safe and profitable chemical byproducts (formates used in agriculture for feedstock, food preservatives and many other byproducts).

    Note: being able to convert CO2 into useful byproducts is much more environmentally friendly and profitable then burying CO2 into the ground, which many in Europe/US are advocating.

    Also, while as you mentioned FCEL has an approx mkt cap of 340 mil and BLDP approx 290 million, MVTG's mkt cap is only approx. 20 million, which for those who can afford the risk/reward seems to make this a potentially good addition to any spec portion of a portfolio, IMO, compared to the other fuel cell companies. I have owned FCEL, BLDP & PLUG in the past and sold at a nice profit approx a year ago

    Note: a risk is that MVTG needs to raise more funding, which I believe they are in the process of doing having received approx. million dollar grant(s) from the Canadian gov't and their association with several multi-billion dollar companies, Alstom and Lafarge (world's largest cement mfgr.)

    Also, would appreciate if anyone knows, given ATHX's approx mo. cash burn rate, how many more approx months that ATHX can operate without having to raise additional cash (dilution)?

    I know it's uncertain given Chugai and possible unexpected good news, but assuming the worst, does ATHX currently have enough cash on hand for 9 months or more? to meet operating expenses and given the expenses of more clinical trials? Thanks

  • Athersys' (ATHX) CEO Gil Van Bokkelen on Q4 2014 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    Does anyone else know of a better way to get updates on what ATHX is up to? Are there ATHX blogs or investor groups that communicate with one another and or the company and can you list the appropriate sites?

    Does anyone with experience know if there is a beneficial/reliable person to talk to at ATHX that will actually helps with updates or PR's? i.e when the heart clinical studies are to be done/released or new enrollment beginnings or progress reports for more Stroke clinical trials, England lung clinical trials etc.? Thanks

    IMO, Athx investors shouldn't have to resort to these types of tactics as the company should regularly communicate but it unfortunately appears as if there are not many options.

  • Why Fuel Cell Industry Has A Bright Future And How To Profit From It [View article]
    Sneha, Good intro fuel cell possibility article for those not familiar with fuel cells, however, I think you missed a Fuel Cell company with real potential, IMO, that has superior and advanced fuel cell technology and that's the Canadian company, MVTG.

    MVTG has offices in Vancouver, Hong Kong and Berlin and has received approx million dollar grant(s) from the Canadian gov't and has associations with multi-billion dollar companies, Alstom and Lafarge (world's largest cement maker).

    I like MVTG's safer (non hydrogen), lighter weight and much less expensive Fuel Cell technology and global patents.

    In addition, as Nano Tech pointed out above, MVTG can incorporate their patented carbon recapture technology, which helps eliminate or converts CO2 pollution from almost any global fossil fuel burning furnace into renewable Green products (animal feed, food preservatives, formates and these clean burning former pollution byproducts can also be used in their patented fuel cells mentioned above.

    It is a speculative stock so do your due diligence but for my risk tolerance level, I definitely, like MVTG's risk/reward potential. The following sites should prove informative:
