  • Axion Power Concentrator 385: Dec. 29, 2014 [View instapost]
    When I see a poster with no bio, only 13 comments, all of which are obvious attempts to discredit either Axion or JP, I call BS. And my troll radar is beeping loudly

    Yeah, Rugged, I sometimes think I must be on something good. Like you I stupidly held during all the dilution, etc. I should own a large percentage of the company if I had waited. That's water under the proverbial bridge though and it won't do me any good to cry over it. I did have a dream the other night that I went to my monitor and saw us over $2 on some news. I didn't catch what the mews was, unfortunately. LOL

    As we get ready to close out 2014, which everyone will agree started with much promise and is ending with much anguish, I've been trying to put things in perspective. As I mentioned above, I've been buying at this level, and I believe the results of that strategy will be known in short order. I'll either have some 10-bagger shares or I'll lose even more money. I believe it will be the former.

    Many people here have been overly critical of Tom Granville, and I will admit that I sometimes wonder what the real story was relating to many things, but here are some facts I considered before partaking in the offering and buying even more shares since.

    Over the last 5 years, someone at Axion has;

    Made a public presentation with BMW and continued to work with them on testing, etc. Even if nothing ever comes of that LOB, it speaks volumes to me.

    Worked with NSC to rebuild and test the NS999. I've always said this excites me more than other potential wins. To be called an industry partner, how big is that? Again, I believe it speaks volumes both about the PbC and the management team that worked with NSC.

    Convinced Cummins to send a team of engineers to Florence, KY to work with ePower not once, but multiple times. Free of charge. Does anyone really believe that Cummins would do this out of the kindness of their heart just to help a struggling start-up as a favor?

    Convinced the Navy to use the PbC in their zero-emission test location. Yeah, we'd like to hear more about that and other initiatives, but anyone here that has either been in the military or worked in or with any government agency on any type of procurement knows things don't happen over night.

    Worked with BySolar and now the Coatesville initiative and convinced them that the PbC is the best solution. That didn't happen by itself. Someone at Axion spearheaded those.

    There's a few other things in the works so we've been told. I believe DDG is going full-speed ahead on many fronts and I don't believe selling the company is one of them. Within the next few months perhaps one of them will come to fruition. Once tax-loss selling is done, the price should start walking up a bit and it wouldn't take much news for us to avoid the priceless conversion scenario.

    I'm staying long.

    I've actually been a buyer here. The reasons that made me buy at .10 have not gone away so .02 seems like a good decision. I do think DDG is doing the things he needs to do and the technology for sure hasn't changed. We just need one catalyst to see a huge gain and I think we'll see it soon. Of course I've been saying that for years but this time I mean it. :-).

    Great Article. Too bad it doesn't have the correct contact information at the end.

    @bazoo

    Yes and Yes

    I still believe Axion will be a big deal. I got in too early, I now realize that. But I'm not worried in the least about the future of the company.

    RA, very astute. A lot going on that most on this board do not know about, or do not care to know about.

    I repeat what I said after I visited ePower, spent some time with Jay and the team and took a ride in the truck. This is going to be a very big deal. It in turn will make Axion a big deal. Won't be quick enough for most, but it's coming.

    Thanks for checking. I have tried clearing internet files and going to page again, etc. but have not been able to duplicate. The other constant is starting ETrade Pro, and I have notified them that there may be a problem.

    FYI;

    I can't say for sure there is a problem with the Axion website, but today, for the second time, I found some malware installed right after I went to the site. It is DealsFinderPro and is a PIA to get rid of. I have to delete some registry keys after uninstalling the application. Seems too much of a coincidence.

    Hi Varan,

    Just found you while reading Frank Grossman's latest. I want to be sure I understand this correctly;

    For the RS-GMR-ETF: IJJ, IEV, ILF, EPP, EEM, TLT - ETF strategy, you are 100% in one of the 6 funds, and that one fund is the one that was the best performer over the previous 3 months? It seems so easy I figure I might be over-thinking it and miss something?

    Thank you

    I did see that, and I have not read through the BK filing, but does anyone know if common shareholders have any future? In other words, is picking up a few shares of XIDEQ a possible long-term play or a waste of time and money.

    So far, I'm impressed with DDG's efforts

    Cool, OR. I was a weapons mechanic for years when the NYS Air Guard had the A-10.

    He is not familiar with the Axion name and knows of no large solar installation with storage. Perhaps the "dot" on that slide is wishful or forward thinking.
