    If the buying continues today, they may be out by EOD, lol.

    I have seen 10, 100K+ orders today, and quite a few 50K+. Can't read anything into that but at least somebody is optimistic today.

    @user - We don't know anything about you yet, but you sure seem to know your battery chemistry. I appreciate your insight. Confirms just how tough it is to reach the lofty goals that are being thrown around by folks who don't know any better, and also shows that at least for the foreseeable future, a solution to many battery needs already exists in our PbC.

    Ack! Just realized I used breaks instead of brakes. Incorrect usage of words drives me nuts.

    I had missed the mention of the new video, John, but I just watched and it's very interesting. I don't pretend to understand the significance of the 796 volts, but the fact that the batteries were pretty much at full charge after a 2-hour trip speaks volumes, IMO.


    On the on-ramp scene where the tractor slows without using breaks, my first thought is that this setup should also save fleets money in brake overhauls, which I am sure is costly on big trucks.

    Also noticed the auto tranny right off since there was no gear changing going on. The cab seemed to be very quiet which I would also consider a plus if I was a driver.

    Very cool stuff. For many reasons I hope you sell a million of them.

  • AIG beats, boosts dividend and buyback [View news story]
    Yep, AIG is one of my largest holdings. Bought @ $34 when they started repaying Uncle Sam. Wish I could go back and load up the truck at that price.

    I think it would be a good idea for John to head to the the Geneva auto show to gather some information first-hand. He knows the lay of the land and can visit some old pals while there.

    LOL, yes, that would be a positive negative comment.

    >> HTL, Perhaps, but if someone is that negative about the prospects for a company, from the top management down to sales, then why stay a shreholder and why keep posting. And if you don't own any shares, what could possibly motivate a constant barage of negativity?

    I'm waiting for announcement of a $10M sale because there will be posts such as "only 10M? Why not 20, we need to replace the BOD, the CEO, the sales dept., etc."

    Yes John, it is easy to come to the conclusion that many here have absolutely no clue as to how SO has changed things, and also have such a high degree of negativity that it has become a driving factor in their line of reasoning. I think if I felt that way I would just move on and and be happy rather than continuing to wallow in self-pity.

    I had the same thoughts, RB. Starting with the Conference last summer where NS openly named us a partner, there's just too many pieces of information coming together for it all to be merely coincidence.

    Remember the poster who mentioned that training was underway for electric loco drivers? I don't know that we ever heard from him/her again, but it's another piece to the puzzle. As John said last week "it sure seems like someone is trying to tell us something".

  • Is the sun rising on Daybreak Oil and Gas? [View instapost]
    Have no fear, Patrick. When I saw the price action yesterday I was puzzled, but not alarmed. I have no clue if it was a mistake by someone entering an order, or MM games, or ?? I wish it had been me that picked up those cheap shares. And, the total dollar volume traded yesterday was what, $20K? Not a large amount of money.

    When I last spoke with thte CEO in late December he was also puzzled about the slow decline in price up to that point. I also heard from him yesterday regarding the day's action. He said all he can do is keep taking care of the company and let the stock price take care of itself.

    It is important to remember that this is a very small, thinly traded company at this point. If someone decides they need money for some other purpose and needs it quick, it can have a large impact on the pps. Companies this small do not trade on fundamentals.

    We'll be fine here.

  • The ABC's Of Axion Power's Business Execution And Price Performance [View instapost]
    Well put, John. One of the reasons I built such a large position here is that I know that companies like NS would NEVER publicly name a company like Axion as a partner unless they fully intended to have a long and fruitful partnership with them. The only thing that could possibly change that would be if another technology came along that blew Axion out of the water on price, performance and all of the other characteristics of the PbC and I certainly don't see that happening any time soon. Sure, things have not moved as quickly as we would like, but I've been involved in project management at large companies for a good share of my career, and sometimes that's just the way things work.

    Add in the Power Cube, ePower, etc. and it's all just gravy on the potatoes.

    Small O and G juniors don't always follow general market trends. My guess is someone needed some money and decided to sell. The recent sales have been low-volume. Until another solid PR we could see some further price decline, although I think it will be minimal. There's just too much going for this company now and I can't imagine too many shareholders wanting to exit at this stage of the game.

    What I'm looking forward to is the 10K in May. It will include revenue figures from the last couple months which should include both the H-1 and H-3 wells, and possibly the other three KY wells. Revenues for the 4th quarter should be many multiples of the same period in the prior fiscal year.

    Also, as stated in a recent PR, the company is actively seeking out additional leases and opportunities. The big increase in their LOC gives them the flexibility to go after some bigger fish. Wouldn't surprise me to see some news regarding these fish in the 10K. The SEC requires companies to report any material information in the 10K that was known at the date on the filing, so if anything is finalized before the end of this month we'll know it in May.

    As the CEO has told me, "stay tuned".

  • Axion Power Concentrator 300: Feb. 01 '14: Q3 '13 Results; Sale Of PowerCubeâ„¢ ESS; John Petersen Joins EPower [View instapost]
    Based on my back -of-the-napkin calculations I've been feeling the same, John. I have a few friends waffling on buying some shares and I told them this week that the days of buying shares for a dime are coming to a close.

    News keeps getting better for my favorite little oil company. With today's PR, we get news of production from two of the KY wells. Last fall the CEO told me they were expecting 200 BOPD initially, but the H-3 well is producing over 300. The weather and inadequate production facilities have prevented them from taking advantage of this, but they have been able to sell an average of about 100 barrels daily from this well. The H-1 well has produced over 6,000 barrels since October and that was also with decreased production due to equipment issues and weather.

    The PR says they plan on another 20 wells in KY during 2104. Even using the conservative 50 BOPD production after the normal drop-off, that will still provide 50 * 25 * .25 = 312 BOPD net to us. That's a very conservative number since it does not include any of the initial high production rate.

    Add in a few more wells this spring in Kern County and we could easily have total production of 500+ BOPD net to us. That will easily make this a $1 stock.

    In addition, they hope to add additional leases in KY. My hope is the new leases will have Daybreak as the operator. I will find out next time I speak with the CEO.

    Stay tuned. Things look to get very interesting as the year progresses.
