  • Bloomberg: Google had $6B deal to buy Tesla in 2013 [View news story]
    "...stationary battery business for which there are not even any pro formas, and in a field that is already crowded..."

    It won't be crowded once Tesla starts selling dirt cheap packs made from batteries from it's massive giga-factory.

    Tales, future execution risks often come with future rewards (especially with skilled management) and shareholder dilution for a growing company are almost always temporary.

    Their revenues seem OK to me Boxman! Declining revenues, I assume that's what you mean by "loosing money"? As long as their investments are not HEAVILY outweighing revenues, seems all good to me!!!

    And how much is it turning over in revenue to support those debt repayments and capex investments Logical Thought? They will eventually get to the stage where they will decide to invest a lot LESS in capex, pay off a lot more debt and show a decent GAAP profit even perhaps leading to a nice healthy dividend for shareholders. But for now they are like any other start up, if fact, they will WILLINGLY remain that way until they have achieved their untimate GOAL - an electric vehicle revolution that can really give the regular auto industry a run for it's money. So, until then, please stop harping on the negative as us smart investors know it is fundamentally a necessary evil and only a stepping stone for as long as necessary (which takes longer than usual in the massively expensive auto industry).

    Pot Pie, I think the author of that comment meant all NEW cars will be electric within 15 years. Not too hard to imagine, after all, most current, regular factory production lines would not need to even change much to replace the engine and gas tank with an electric motor and battery pack instead.

    What good is there in investing in Chinese companies, even if you make a packet, when your own children cannot find q job anymore, or start a business in America. Are you prepared to give up everything, take your family and move to China for the rest if your life?

    Long term investment in Chinese based companies is not a good idea. There is no doubt that once America is weakened enough economically and China is bug enough economically and technically, China will invade the west, en mass with the population to back their military efforts. Those who don't see this inevitabily coming are foolish. Short term investment is far safer. Take profits from a small amount of Chinese investments short term and reinvest in US based companies instead though.

  • Hanergy Set To Challenge Solar Frontier As The CIGs Leader After Gobbling Global Energy [View instapost]
    This wall all so obviously a Chinese conspiracy to get control of American and western Intellectual Property, patents and assets for pennies to the dollar. These Chinese companies, in collaboration with the Chinese government flooded the market with cheap silicon solar panels which they barely made a profit on. That bankrupted all of the more expensive, but more efficient solar manufacturers in the west, which they then went and bought up for pennies on the dollar. Now, they have the tools and slave labour to mass produce thin film solar and nobody will be able to compete. The US government knew this would happen which is why they didn't to anything to stop it, like massive import tarrifs on the silicon cells, or outright ban on Chinese imports. They probably had shares in the Chines companies all along and used tax payer money in the US to develop these thin film producers and get them ready for the big Chinese take over - and nobody saw it coming least of all these companies themselves.

    PS. Guys, no matter how good this company looks, never invest more than 5 percent of your portfolio in ANY company. Not even an Apple, or Microsoft. Its just not worth the risk, unless your entire portfolio is worth less than a months salary, but even then... not a good habit...
