  • Is Tesla's Gigafactory Becoming A Gigafarce? [View article]
    Well, JP, seems you've drawn the usual crowd of commentators. Enjoyed the article and the 'edifice-complex' line was priceless. Thanks for taking the lumps and, yet, still keep us informed!

    I thought it was a wonderful line.

    If you're interested, I believe Shah was a speaker at the Commonwealth Club and there is a publicly available podcast of it at Commonwealth.Org -- at least, if my memory serves.

    i tend to agree that both amazon (for some higher value things to specialized audiences) and craigslist for getting rid of usable 'junk' at better-than-garagesale prices) are better options for a lot of things. I don't sell much via ebay anymore.

    I've also noticed that the shipping prices have gone insane in many areas. Some sellers are complaining that it's the way ebay is handling the calculation. I've sold on ebay for years but shipping charges have become a huge drag on sales, imo.

  • Giant Interactive: The Deal Is Moderately Attractive With 8.9% Annualized Return [View article]
    I guess I don't understand this. How can they suspend the dividends BEFORE there is an actual merger? So, they're just trying to 'job' those people who invest for dividends by encouraging them to sell earlier and avoid the $12 a share they're supposed to get?

    I'm beginning to think any stock investment in china is a waste.

    I'm a simpleton, I admit it.

    Just seem to me that it's pointless for the those negative on this stock to keep on publicly whining about their endless dissatisfaction.

    Hate TG? Ever consider that you're your own worst enemy? Ever consider that if you keep your mouth shut and maybe let the stock price begin to rise you could *quietly* sell off, take your loses (or even a minor profit) and move on?

    Have you ever considered that endless public bashing of Axion management is doing you more harm than good?

    How about some friggin' unabated cheer-leading?

    No. Seriously. What is there to be gained with the incessant TG bashing besides personal masturbatory satisfaction? Do you really think you have the power to over-throw management? And even if you can delude yourself into believing it possible, do you really think that doing so would materially improve the stock price or the company's long-term prospects?

    Do you really think you have better management skills that can help Axion? Then get off your ass and fly to PA to offer them -- do something concrete and meaningful -- anything -- but try to realize that your constant petty tirades directed at TG haven't materially changed anything. Ever. And they never will.

    They only harm us . . . including those of you who make them. Nothing gets better by mere complaining. And, again, I'm a simpleton but I don't see how the negative emotes that dominate this group have EVER done anything positive. Piper-be-damned, we're our own worstest enemy.

    Okay, so now, before the snarkies emerge and have their self-justifying blow-back, I understand that sometimes we are frustrated and sometimes we express it. That's okay once in a while but not as a life-style. I'd rather see this concentrator with far fewer but more useful comments than what it's turned into in the last couple of years. Negative comments seriously outweigh everything else. Frankly, I don't see any benefit to the volume, as represented here. If I had that much vocal discontent, I would have taken the loss and moved on long ago.

    Oh, and by the way, no one has offered me any links to collections of Axion/Epower pics/vids . . .

    true, true RA . . . few know that history. I will not worship at the alter of St. Elon. Neither will I crucify TG simply because Axionistas don't get what they want when they want it.

    In general, with regard to investing, patience wins.

    Are you saying that all dividend payments have been suspended pending the buyout?

    CALL FOR ASSISTANCE

    Dear fellow Axionistas, I am seeking links for a) photos and/or b)videos involving either Axion or Epower for a music video. Particularly things with logos on or in them.

    If you would share your links with me, I'd appreciate it -- but don't clog up the concentrator, just pm me for my email and you can send them directly. And let me know if you want to be listed in the credits.

    When finished, I'll post the link here (I'm doing this for fun, not profit).

    Thanks!

    There are rhetoric lectures by Prof. Michael D.C. Drout which are both technically accurate and, for the most part, rather entertaining -- and often saying things similar to Mr. Fry. You can find some of his works on-line, at his website and also through the various Books-on-Tape and/or The Teaching Company. Worth the effort to find, imo.

  • Is Southern Copper Corporation A Good Investment? [View article]
    I think there are two missing metrics here which would make the presentation more appropriate: a) growth rate in world-wide demand for copper . . . say, over the last 10 years, minimum. b) the global growth rate of copper recycling ... also, say, over the last 10 years.

    If there has been a significant improvement in recycling of copper, say such that 'dirty' copper becomes easier to capture with less waste-loss, then this might very well put a damper on the predicted recovery.

    I'm not referring to the investment in the car company which, on a strictly personal note, doesn't interest me beyond the PT Barnum aspect of St. Elon. I'm referring to those who take the aggregate of what he says and think it represents either scientific or economic reality -- I believe 'sheeple' might be an appropriate label for them -- now or in the future. The vast majority of his spew is little more than very expensive and short-term environmental snake oil, imo. Well and convincingly sold but still snake oil.

    Not to argue but I'd submit that either Hegel and/or Nietzsche can give St. Tommy a run for his money in the 'convoluted' category. Not that Spinoza was an easy read....

    I enjoyed the works . . . but, then, linguistics is a hobby of mine . . .
