  • RGS Energy: Is M&A The Only Realistic Exit Plan For Investors? [View article]
    "Real Goods Solar, Inc. is a solar energy company. The Company serves commercial, residential, and utility customers. The Company provides a solar solution, from design, financing, permitting and installation to ongoing monitoring, maintenance and support.

The Company’s solar power installation services are available in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

    That description has grown quite a lot in the last 6 months.. More deals coming, soon in every state. There is quite a bit of momentum in the solar industry due to the Energy tax credits for these businesses and citizens. Those aren't going away anytime soon. Not until they take a bigger bite out of Oil dependency. Soon to be Sun dependency which has a Billion year historic pattern.

  • The Solar Revolution: Part 2 [View article]
    "Unfortunately, electricity storage is an unanswered problem the world has not yet solved. Current solutions are far from being economical." Or has it been already solved on the cheap by brillant inventors who are then just bought out,suppressed, or intentionally sabotaged and killed? European Patents are a little less suppressed and politically biased compared to USPO (6 years of patent pending???!) who likes to ensure they have taxes in place on anything that could benefit humanity at large (and prevent from bankrupting Profiteering Campaign Donors, whether Large Corporate, Private, or Foreign). A little list of Patents to get you started on this truth (that the patent office is kicking themselves for patenting.) EP 2505870A2 ; U.S. 685,957 ; US 3,890,548...

  • Inovio: All Signs Point Up [View article]
    Not an expert in biochemistry, but in electrical engineering. I found this quite fascinating similarity. I believe high frequency harmonics can also do wondrous things to DNA sequences and cells. Tesla claims a healing property using high frequencies, but never patented any devices for this. Other's have pursued though, and many electrical high frequency devices exist today that help heal.

  • How To Plan For Your Retirement Income [View article]
    You are on the right track, now if you are happy and have tested what makes you happy, then you'll know the lowest annual expenses you'll need to maintain a happy lifestyle and how low in annual expenses you can go until you feel deprivation.

    Once you know your happy lifestyle annual expenses, then you'll realize you probably have more then enough income to retire now.

    Life's time is limited. So unless you are doing what you would love to do (and not ordered around by anyone to do this or that) then you should think about what you would do during retirement that's inexpensive and full of filling experiences, and then consider retiring now, while you still have time left to enjoy your life.

  • Tesla Reminds Me Of Apple [View article]
    2 other things investors are counting on to improve value in the Tesla products.

    1) Electric motor WHEELS. This technology is about to hit the markets and slightly shift the auto consumers to electric vehicles. The High Quality of Motors inside or near your tire directly and powered by electricity. Soon the battery will be under the engine hood, and wheels won't need axels, shafts, etcs, to weigh the car down. Tripling your capacity's travel distance overnight.

    2) Higher and Higher Gas prices. More political unrest and Oil greed. More Demand from emerging markets for gas. Less drilling. More tax hungry and spendy politicians.

    Disclaimer: Bought TLSA stock 8 months ago. Holding for long term. Prefers if Dr. Tesla would run Tesla Motors, but then energy would have been free by now, and the rest of the world would somehow still be in poverty.

  • A Hidden Gem In The Solar Industry? [View article]
    Wow, an awesome read! I wonder if this guy sees potential to dominate the Solar Residential Energy Market share, get consumers off of the expensive "customer surcharge fee" grids, and more onto self-sustaining energy for every house, business, hotel, mobile forward operating base in the world?

    I bought at 4.60, then shorted at 6.75 a few hours later. as the short squeeze backfired on many.

  • Tesla Patent Applications Reveal Next Generation EV Technology [View article]
    Don't forget about Electric Motor Wheels technology.

    Take the Batteries and tire wires to the electric motors that are right next to the brakes and wheels, in synchronous harmony, and there goes the car's need of the drive train and axii, and the 60% weight of a standard car is replaced by 4 smaller electric motors, plus all those mechanical parts are gone, thus no need for repairs etc.

    Electric Motors are high quality and an almost mastered technology to begin with, lasting and lasting. Just look at all the electric motors inside your Nuclear and Coal Plants already.

    Battery + 4 x $700 high quality electric motor wheels + body of Car and comfort systems = $?,??? affordable Electric Vehicles.

    Side Notes:

    Tesla U.S. Patents > Thomas Edison's.

    111 listed on Wiki,

    285 total. 174 are still classified.

  • The Dividend Growth Model Is Working [View article]
    Well, the PC may be dying, but Intel chips are not. They are extremely high quality and highly needed in this digital age.

    Long INTC. Bought at very low dips, for selling when my Pentium Chip mind dies in infinite years.

    Imagine the future a little, imagine a processor that has no moving parts, but flips 0's and 1's via magnetic re-connection nano-loops thus no heat generation, and is powered by any star's light.

    How is third party testing of manufacturing data irrelevant?

    If this was the case, every Nuclear Power Plant component in existence would be irrelevant to how the business and technology works.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    Actually, you can very well not spend, and what balances the market are investments from that savings.

    Being a Creditor is more luxurious then being a Debtor.

    If you had 100 Americans stuck on an island for 30 years. 2 would become wealthy and wouldn't have to lift a finger, because they created, saved, and loaned out their tools; and other's need for spending on unlimited wants lead them into financial debt and financial slavery.

    Being a Creditor is a personal choice and sacrifice of material possessions for the ultimate reward, Free Time. Then you concentrate on the next goal, Power to gain your Freedoms.
