  • Axion Power Concentrator 247: June 28: Axion Power Receives Order To Supply Class 8 Truck Battery Strings For EPower [View instapost]
    For BMW it seems to me they simply can't incorporate the PbC into any model until the availability of PbC's far in the future is an absolute certainty. All the car's electronics and SS system would be specifically designed for the PbC. If the availability of PbC's disappeared how would they handle replacements or warranty issues? I suppose they could kluge something together with L-ion's but that would be troublesome and expensive.

    Having been in and out of Axion several times the question I am pondering now is when will Axion have enough revenue to quit issuing shares just to keep the lights on? Any guesses without the use of rose colored eye glasses from fellow Axionista's?

    I just returned from a trip to Tennessee to bury my mother in our family plot in Nashville. One spot left. Guess it has my name on it. I'm all that's left.

    Inndelco> Thanks for in effect answering WayneinOregon's question to me about why I don't think BMW will place an order directly with Axion. I admit to the possibility I am wrong, but I firmly believe they want the assurance of a major auto battery supplier or two telling them that they can unquestionably meet BMW's needs for PbC's if ordered without any hiccups.

    Buy more? Have you looked at the stock chart lately? Is there a single encouraging thing in the chart? It bounced off of .14 to .15? I learned a lesson on Axion. I fell in love with the technology. Unfortunately, you put money in the bank, not technology. Wanna buy something? How about McDonalds? All they do is make money. Cramer said it long ago. "Nobody cares about batteries." Mr. Market doesn't care about batteries. The whole sector has been gruesome!

    I am going to go out on a limb here and say that TG has been spoon feeding the stockholders pablum for over a year now. Always raises expectations and nothing ever comes to pass. I don't consider selling an occasional 36, or 24, or 52 batteries a victory. Right now we're walking with a bounce - like a dead cat off of asphalt.

    I can't compute how many shares Axion will need to give the latest capital raise bunch. If JP or D-Inv or someone can tell me please post a number. I think it is dilution with a capital D. John says you make a beer stronger when you put in a shot of booze. Axion's capital raise is in the till. What we don't know and won't for quite a while is how many shares Axion will ultimately fork over for the shot of booze they bought.

    IMHO I think Axion bought time to sell the company to somebody. What Axion possesses is a completed R&D project ready for commercialization, but Axion doesn't have the resources, money or staying power to accomplish it. I don't think there is a prayer that BMW will ink a deal in Axion's name. They will ink a deal with somebody big enough to depend on for PbC's - not Axion. And if there has to be 2 somebodies outside of Axion that's going to take a deal maker far above my experience level to make happen.

    If Axion succeeds in the long term I will eat my words and provide a link to watch me doing it.

    I think that came out with 2 AGM's. I remember the introduction and I distinctly remember it had two batteries, but not sure if it was Focus model, but I believe it was.

    If short sellers were covering today and they gain enough profit out of it, why wouldn't they launch another round of short selling? I can't see anyone holding the price up against a strong selling volume.

    Maybe I should open a roadside stand with pitch forks and torches the day of the annual meeting? This is intended to be gallows humor Axionistas!

    If I understood JP correctly he said Axion would need two industry partners to satisfy BMW 's sole source concerns. Is that correct? If true I would think it would be difficult to accomplish. I hope I am mistaken.

    I'll keep up with the search feature and see what happens next. When I last posted I had bought AXPW again I said if I lost my money so be it. Easier saying than doing. Down 18% in roughly 12 days is just insane. Slowly bleeding to death is probably bearable, but putting up with your jugular vein slashed in half is something else. It appears the stock price and Axion's actual business circumstances are completely disconnected.

    What is it about this video that reminds me of my experience with Axion stock? http://bit.ly/12ott3Z

    I went back to the sidelines. I exepected some sort of game but when we came out of the dugout they were putting the tarp back on the field and shutting down the concession stands. Watching my money evaporate with out a whimper was to much for me to bear.

    I don't know if you've looked at the Google Doodle of the day, but I am certain the person at the end of the line on the right owns Axion stock.

    I told a friend I would take the summer off from the APC's but as I watch the price slide whenever I log into my brokerage site I get sucked into reading the APC's again for help in reading my very dark and cloudy crystal ball. When I peer deep enough all I see is JR rubbing his hands together and cackling gleefully!

    This stock reminds me of the book "Riptide" which is based on the famous hunt for buried treasure at the bottom of the "Water Pit" on Oak Island. No matter how deep the price falls the bottom continues to be ripped out of it and I'm no closer to the treasure!

    The only way to hold this stock is with DRich's attitude and remember that as he told Valleywood, the price will be lower than whatever you paid for it. The only thing I am confident of holding this stock is that Robert Averill, who owned 3,772,059 AXPW shares in 2009, and who just sunk another $750,000 into Axion is no fool. He's been with Axion since 2004 and I think he wrote the check to buy the New Castle battery plant. I can't imagine he took a shot into the dark.

    He's 72 and my experience working with older business people as a consultant was they were only interested in "Now" not later. So, here's to Bob! Push this beast across the finish line!

    It's the fourth quarter for Axion no matter how you slice it after the last capital raise. There's no time left to change either the quarterback or the coach. They have to win or lose with the management team they've got now - good, bad or whatever.

    I think Job had it easy compared to owning Axion! Still "hoping, and praying, wishing and waiting" as the old popular song said. I think I'll take a break from reading the concentrators for a while. Just makes me that much more impatient. As my grand mother taught me - "A watched pot never boils." Taking the summer off from Axion unless something great happens which would arrive by email from Axion.
