    No comments to your post? Shows how unaware the market is of HHC.

    I've been long since around 80.00 and plan to stay for the long haul, but it is reassuring to see such a positive outlook from a true professional.

    I appreciate all your posts, but especially the ones on HHC.

    Thank you and Merry Christmas.

    I ordered a prepaid cc to go with my Paypal account. It pays 1.5% cash back if you use it without a pin. I bought a Paypal cash upload card at Rite Aid for a cost of 0.8% and uploaded to Paypal. Whatever rebates or points your card pays above 0.8 is profit to you. Mine pays 2.2 which gives me a net of 1.4%. I then buy gift cards from Raise by logging in through Ebates which pays another 1%. So I have a 3.9% profit before the discounted gift cards which may be another 10-20% or more. I always try to keep gift cards in my wallet for all the stores we shop regularly. I think I average at least 20% savings.

    Today I bought a Starbucks card for 17.2% discount plus my 3.9% described above. I keep a card registered at Starbucks which I will transfer this one to for the significant bonus rewards offered by Starbucks.

    My not make me rich, but I save several hundred per month.

    It is actually your own prepaid card....not someone else's.

    The nice thing about Bluebird, and others like it, is it comes with bill pay and checkbook so you can pay your mortgage, car payment, or fund an IRA with a credit card and get the points. Lot's of internet posts about it.

    Here's two good links:

  • Troll Hunting [View instapost]
    "Instead, I'm just too busy with things that I do like to do."

    So are the trolls......just busy doing things they like to do. And they are everywhere.

    I don't say thank you to SA authors as it clutters up the comments and really adds nothing to the discussion, but on your blog I will gladly make an exception. I have made nice profits from some ideas you have presented and hold a couple of your ideas now. More importantly for me, I have become a much better investor and have gained a much better understanding of the process and possibilities (I spent a good part of the past weekend reading everything I could find on mutual conversions). I have a hand full of SA authors I follow are at the top of the list. As long as you keep posting, I'm going to following.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Meanwhile, the trolls are still trolling.....but going nowhere.

  • Consolidated Water: Desalination Expert Set To Rise 25% [View article]
    Thanks for your article.

    A few months back, I did some research on the future of graphene and came across a Forbes article on Lockheed Martin. The have filed for a patent for using graphene as the filter in RO systems.

    From the article:
    "A more revolutionary concept the company is pursuing uses graphene filters only a single atom thick to remove sodium and chlorine from ocean water through a process known as reverse osmosis. The process has been around for years, but the trademarked “Perforene” filtration system for which Lockheed recently received a patent would make high-volume desalination a hundred times more efficient. It would also greatly reduce energy costs, since reverse osmosis involves forcing water through filters to remove minerals, and the Perforene filter is so thin that much less pressure is required (graphene is a thousand times stronger than steel). The new process has obvious appeal in coastal areas where fresh water is scarce such as the Persian Gulf."

    The vast majority of the cost to produce RO water is in the energy required to push it through the filter. If a graphene filter is 100 times more efficient, my conclusion is that the energy costs would be reduced by 99%. I would further conclude that RO water produced through a graphene filter would likely be cheaper than most of us pay for water currently. This might be the real catalyst for CWCO.

    LMT says on the site that they expect to have a prototype ready by mid 2014. It will be a simple drop in filter adaptable to any RO system. Their interest is only in developing and selling filters or collecting royalties from the technology.

    If LMT is successful with this idea, CWCO will be sitting pretty.

    BTW, I'm a dedicated follower of your articles.
