  • A "Non-Event" Jan. 30th That Could Quickly Spell Bad News For Kandi Technologies Short Sellers.  [View instapost]
    An excellent explanation that pulls back the curtain in a "Wizard of Oz" moment, that only a few non-insiders could have done. Your explanation which incorporates not only the history, but your personal knowledge of the mechanics, is insightful, factual and just plain helpful.

    What is pathetic and unfortunate, of course, is that many innocent investors and traders have been involuntarily washed out of the stock, as a result of the manipulation by those holding the warrants as they execute their strategy. And given the long hard to borrow status of this stock, it makes the execution of their strategy suspect, and the SEC at least publicly has turned a blind eye.

    Transparency is welcome, and your well written narrative provides a refreshing insight, that should shame more than a few who manage and enforce our financial markets.

    Thank you.

  • Kandi Technologies Dominates China's Electric Car Market  [View article]
    Nice job, Michael.

    In particular, I don't believe American investors fully appreciate or understand that Kandi is in the "sweet spot" of the Chinese government's efforts, as you accurately reflected in the one paragraph, which I've copied and pasted below. And related, it's not a case of investors having to find one winner, the EV market in China alone is so huge, there can be many winners, and Kandi certainly will be included, which makes "stock picking" for this particular opportunity, much easier...

    "Do not underestimate the China State and its local governments when they do all in their power to restrict traditional car purchases, pour trillions of dollars into NEV subsidies, provide tax exemption, enforce government procurement of EV, and build charging infrastructures. The EV movement has just begun, go with the flow, invest wisely, and profit greatly!"

  • Short Kandi - Raised Bet Or A Lonely Game?  [View article]
    Sure... there are many investors (and traders) who reach a point of frustration with the manipulation, that they VOLUNTARILY sell out and book a loss and move on...

    Then there are investors and traders who don't wish to sell, but INVOLUNTARILY do so as a result of an unexpected sell stop being hit, or a margin call, either of which is caused by volatility due to manipulation, eg they would not have been taken out, "but for" the intentional actions of a few...

  • Short Kandi - Raised Bet Or A Lonely Game?  [View article]
    And the SEC should be thoroughly embarrassed for having taken NO action, despite being in receipt of numerous written complaints, pointing out AND documenting the irregularities in trading on the short side. When you have a hard to borrow stock and some "character" is shorting over 500,000 shares in one day, doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that something smells. And none of that includes certain third parties who clearly have been cooperating and facilitating that short manipulator.

    In the meantime, countless traders and well meaning investors who have done their due diligence, have incurred losses, voluntarily or involuntarily as a result of the short manipulation, and the SEC does absolutely nothing...and few wonder why there's such a loss of credibility and skepticism in our markets.

    Thanks for your great and informative posts. I continue to be an investor and supporter of Kandi, both because I enjoy making money, and because it's out of the box approach in challenging the taken for granted reality of the automobile industry, will benefit our earth.

  • How KNDI Shareholders Actually Got Punked  [View instapost]
    I totally agree with what you expressed.

    It is pathetic that the SEC has buried its head on this subject for so long, obviously there are vested interests that carry their weight with the SEC so no progress is made on the deficiencies you so elegantly describe.

    The fact that in Kandi's instance, this behavior has gone on so blatantly, is even a greater testament to the fact that the modern day thiefs who perpetrate this behavior feel invincible, notwithstanding the trail that their trading leaves behind.

    In addition to the SEC being beholden to certain interests in the financial community who profit from this illegal behavior, is the fact that if this type of behavior was publicly aired in a manner that was understandable to those not sophisticated, it would undermine to even a greater extent, confidence in our markets, then did the trading lapses over the past several years. And given the SEC's colored past, not only in the financial crisis but with Madoff, I'm sure they are not eager to have that dirty launder aired, something which they've sat on for decades.

    Some companies without the knowledge of their shareholders, do pursue tracking down the identity of the individuals involved, by getting the exchanges to permit them to inspect and review trading records, and then passing the results on to appropriate entities such as the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution, the SEC for civil enforcement, and certain interested individuals who wish to pursue their own civil action for damages under the securities laws. But none of that ever makes it on CNBC or the front page of the New York Times, and the "quiet" handling of these few situations as they weave their way through the courts, only attracts the interest of the lawyers and some shareholders, who more often than not, find no recovery even though they prevail.

    The real solution is the entity that receives our tax money, the SEC. There are rules on the books, they are not enforced. And as in the case of Kandi, it is brazingly obvious. It is a disgrace, and even a greater disgrace that those respected leaders in the financial and investment community have done nothing about it, something that goes on under their watch.

    Thanks for the post.

  • Kandi: Don't Look Now, It's Happening  [View article]
    Greater due diligence to combat lack of transparency IS called for, when investing in Chinese companies, which explains the existence of the Kandi Private Forum, consisting of 432 members from all over the world, with over 10,500 message postings, and more importantly, an extensive library of links (accessible by the public) which represents a treasure trove of research by its members who scour the Chinese media, technical sites, public filings, and relevant articles and publications re Chinese state and local governmental actions, battery milestones, impact on China's electrical grid system, and activities of Kandi's partners. Mr. Goldman's article represents the kind of serious thinking, research, and analysis that members participate in on a daily basis.

    So yes, lack of transparency is always a concern when a Chinese listed company is involved, but as noted by a prominent lead securities counsel for a Nasdaq listed company, the Kandi Private Forum represents the most active investor site he's ever seen when it comes to research and due diligence.

    Kandi issues few press releases, they and the required securities filings contain the legally required information, and little more, you'll find no hyperbole when it comes to this Nasdaq listed Chinese company. It's up to motivated investors to do their own due diligence, and as Mr. Goldman has laid out, the facts are there for discovery for those who are willing to put in the time and effort for their investment.

  • Kandi Twisting The Truth - Undisclosed Information Reveals A More Realistic Picture Of Its EV Business  [View article]
    When someone puts out an article and states an alleged "fact" that clearly is false had they only read the 8k, hard not to conclude the agenda of that writer is one thing: manipulation

    Seeking Alpha should be ashamed of itself; this behavior has appeared on SA before with regard to Kandi. In that instance SA REMOVED the article after it was brought to their attention, but only after the fact. The time to get critical is at the submission stage.

    "Business is a competition in which part of the game is to change the game to exploit your competitive advantage. And for now, Kandi has just changed the game."

    And most significantly, for those who have followed the company closely well know, the "change" has been endorsed and embraced by official arms of the Chinese government; see for example, "PRC 'Policy Paper' Favors Kandi Technologies EV Program For All Of China", http://seekingalpha.co...
