  • Still Time For Clean Energy Fuels To Boost Westport [View article]
    It is always tomorrow for this stock - basically an R&D Company where revenue will come tomorrow . Despite a bump from promotion on Motley Fool where it was used to sell subscriptions this is a stock to watch ONLY -.Article on Sept 29, 2013
    I am increasingly concerned about a business model that spends to enter markets like China and then returns to seek new capital because there simply are no profits in sight. Marking up parts is not what Westport or The Motley Fool promotes as the " next big thing".
