    NO. They are a pathetic bunch of buffoons with Yes-men surrounding them as "staff".

  • An Ideal Play On The Surging Adoption Of Energy Storage: Ideal Power, Inc. [View article]
    If they can scale with their targets and produce the claimed results this will be a world beater...and I mean a big IF. The pitch and timing of the product's release are great--but IS the tech REAL and financable from investor and banker perspectives?
    I am interested to see how the solar industry receives this tech--if one big developer tied to a Wells or another U.S. Bank supports the equipment then the dominoes will fall and the money will flow.

  • Dazed And Confused By Growlife - Shares Are Worth A Small Fraction Of Their Current Price [View article]
    Why would the author bother responding to such nonsense? There aren't any posts that are supportive of PHOT that are worth a response. Cheerleading and wishful thinking will lose you your investment in this company.
    There are NO BARRIERS to entry, so any "success" will be short lived--it is the nature of a free economy.
    Boiler room based day traders are pumping pot stocks hard.

    Legitimate company yes. Absurd valuation is the point--this isn't real.
    Check back in few weeks and there will be a lot of poorer pot heads griping about the con artists that tricked them.

    dreaming big doesn't mean a thing if the dream isn't even possible.

  • PM Volatility Masks Impending Rise In Metals And Miners: Don't Sell Out [View article]
    It is a matter of scale--semis keep getting smaller and need less silver. Solar now has the scale and continues to grow at 35% or more every year. A decade ago solar was the victim of "small" numbers--much as changed. In 2003 a 35% percentage increase was a blip on the supply radar of silver analysts. Now the snowball has been rolling downhill picking up mass on every revolution--there is no stopping it. Even O&G are concerned about the ensuing revolution --solar and wind are peeling away their oligopolies based on digging up and burning things for energy (by 2050 O&G will be on par with human traffickers and slave owners).
    Physical Receipt--do some research and find out how much of that "industrial demand" comes from the solar industry (answer: about 50% now). BTW using USGS and EIA data and predictions is not smart--just look at how far off EIA was on virtually every prediction about energy over the past decade (missed it all). How did USGS do predicting the price of gold? It didn't predict the 5x runup from 2002 to now and it will continue to fumble.

    Be aware that your views on Silver are misguided. The solar industry is one of the main forces behind Silver demand and new technology is very close to replacing silver with much cheaper but durable option. Silver has many valuable qualities but gold is the only metal that cannot be substituted by anything with comparable performance.
    As demand from the solar industry shrinks over time, there is a risk for silver to slip back to late 90s pricing. You will see the effect in the next 2 years as demand growth subsides and the trend is reversed. The solar industry will not abandon the use of silver, it will merely be weening itself off gradually over time as commercialization of PV modules with very little or no silver continues.

  • Still A Best Of Bakken Bet [View article]
    Buyout is the only hope. Bleeding cash and piling up debt isn't going to help get suitors. $1.4 B in debt versus $0.015 B in cash---that is UGLY.

  • Why A Solution To Low Gold Prices Is Expensive, Boring Mines [View article]
    classic commentary from a frog boiling in a pot of water.
    pretty funny that you refer to $1300/ounce as it were a LOW price--

    "With gold selling for just $1,300 per ounce, profit margins are nonexistent"

    Back in 2002/3 were you investing in gold???--it was soooooo cheap then so you should have made a mint of your own.

  • Getting Rigged Up For Deep Sea Dividends [View article]
    "leveraged" against contracted revenue streams--these are high credit entities that won't be going anywhere and will pay no whatever the contract states. Thus you can borrow against this stream w/o feeling "out on a limb".

    "loses increase in the next 5 quarters"---and yet PWER is making a profit--thus your information is poorly explain or just false. Show me the losses. You sound like a pathetic Yahoo MB "short".
