  • Westport Innovations: How Good Is Getting In The Way Of Great [View article]
    Bob The Investor has a great comment! It does not look like like WPRT will ever recover the stratospheric heights it had several years ago. Change the focus!

  • "We do believe this to be an isolated event," says Jamie Dimon (JPM) is his prepared testimony for tomorrow's Senate hearing. "We will lose some of our shareholders' money ... no client, customer, or taxpayer money was impacted by this accident." He expects "solid profitability" for the bank in Q2. "Our fortress balance sheet remains intact."  [View news story]
    Gee, as long as this accident is only shareowner money, why not have the accident occur to the management salaries and bonuses?

  • A Reality Check for Wind Power Investors [View article]
    "Homes and businesses in the future will be stored also in times of high production and low demand".
    That is precisely what John is saying--we do not have that technology
    at present nor any guarantee of its availability.
    I still remember that in the 60's they were talking of limitless, safe, and cheap fusion energy. Sixty years later we are not any closer to fusion. It's apparant cost (based on the research and resources utilized) is also prohibitive!
    John is not arguing against wind and solar, just that right now they present an insurmountable obstacle to a reliable COMMERCIAL generating system if we are to depend on them as the MAJOR component of power. Pumped Hydropower from surplus wind and solar cannot supply the energy needed - the storage capacity is just not there.

  • Is This Stock Market Rally Long in the Tooth? [View article]
    This graph shows a cyclical nature for each graph compared, but does NOT in any way forecast the amplitude of the cycle. Thus we are left with the old saying " the market goes up, the market goes down, and the market goes sideways" but no further insight!

  • Annaly Capital: Time for Caution on This Dividend Paying REIT [View article]
    This forum has been informative. For an uneducated investor in finance it is interesting to get additional information than what is published about the stock. Thanks to all the instructive individuals.

    I also appreciated the input about AGNC and CIM. What I don't understand is why AGNC is doing so much better than NLY and CIM so much worse, are they not in essentially the same business?

  • Does Solar Have a Bright Future Ahead? [View article]
    What percent of time is solar power available, even with storage? We will still need the grid for those no sunshine days!

  • Nothing to Fear from China's Alternative Energy Producers [View article]
    Alexyaw and Tech have it right! Additionally, the manufacturing base brings in dollars to stimulate research, stimulate potential engineering talent, and gives rise for product improvement and innovation when the tech people are in touch with the process. In my early career (now retired from teaching engineering) I was impressed by students who had technical abilities garnered by high school jobs such as tech help as well as observation of manufacturing processes. These students went on to excel in part because of early motivation.
    How are we going to motivate our potential science and engineers without a sound economic base?
    The service sector does not quite do it. Joblessness is a motivator of another type-it creates motivation for wealth gathering, not scientific and technical.

    If I recall my history correctly, one of the reasons for WW one was that after the Franco-Prussian war of 1870, France was made to pay reparations to Germany in products, not money. As a consequence,
    France prospered due to it's industrial development.

  • Why GM Is Ready for a Rebound [View article]
    I have often wanted to purchase an American made car, however, each time I go to Consumer's Reports and look up reliability and quality the American made cars fall far short of the Japanese. Since I drive my cars for years and don't trade often I expect low maintenance costs and little to no problems, especially since I am retired and on fixed income.
    Next time that I replace my current car, I will again go to Consumer's Report and check on quality and reliability and repair frequency over a long time as a basis to judge if it's time to purchase that American made car.

    The question is not that the PE's are currently low, rather how did they get that high and no one questioned that!
