    • Why would a guy like this leave at the start of a upswing in business?

      Mr. Johnson has more than twenty-five years of finance experience and previously, from February 2008 to May 2011, he served as the Vice President, Finance and Corporate Controller for GT Solar International, Inc. ("GT Solar"). Mr. Johnson also served as the principal accounting officer for GT Solar from June 2008 to May 2011 and the Chief Accounting Officer for GT Solar from March 2010 to May 2011. Prior to that, Mr. Johnson served in several senior financial positions with Ocean Spray Cranberries, Inc. since May 2002, including most recently, as the Director, Corporate Controller from August 2004 until February 2008. Mr. Johnson holds a B.S. in Accountancy from Bentley College and an MBA from Southern New Hampshire University.

      Unless I am mistaken, the earnings report is scheduled for WEDNESDAY, August 3rd, with the CC to follow on Thursday, August 4th.
      Correct me if I am wrong.

      I look at the timing correlation of the earnings report and the deficit fiasco as a positive. I am ready to double my position in SOLR right now, and the longer this disgusting game is played in Congress the PPS of SOLR will probably go lower. The deficit issue has to be resolved by August 2nd regardless of outcome, and I will double-up by then in time for what we all know will be a great earnings report. By doubling-up my position the PPS will need to regain only half its recent loss to put me back where I was. Any further PPS increase puts me ahead. Better yet, the next year and beyond should result in greater gains, with twice the shares for me.

      The budget crises is a temporary setback, will be resolved by August 2nd. The timing spells opportunity to me, as we all know SOLR has nearly two years of orders in house right now and will weather the temporary storm well. The PPS should bounce back nicely after the August 2nd budget deadline and the August 3rd earnings report, followed by what should also be a positive forward outlook. The more the PPS declines before then the greater the buying opportunity.

      Hold tight, don't panic, and welcome the opportunity Congress and Wall Street is offering.

      I have been investing in the stock market for many years, and I have made more money buying good stocks that have been unjustly trashed by the Wall Street Lemmings heading for the cliffs then I have under any other method. Wall Street regularly presents good opportunities for those with courage and patience.

    • and what does that have to do with big corps not paying their fair share of taxes?

      Hey pic,

      Guess who Obama picked to head his business advisory council?

      That right, GE CEO, Jeff Immelt.

      How's that grab ya?

    • Why do they get unfair concessions? Why do cities want them? Are they asking for more burdens? Put me on ignore because you're a dumbazz too.

    • just for you suckers who think they pay taxes, lmfao@suckers who votes republicans

      you think that is bad, want to know how much the OIL industry gets from YOU sucker? LOL

    • that's because you have no clue how the real world operates, before Intel went and build a plant in one of the cities in the southwest they got so much concession like utility bills are cut in half, for every locals they hire, the city/state contributes to their training, etc etc

      sure overall they bring a lot of money to the community but as far as paying their fair share of taxes based on their revenues that is a BIG LAUGH!!

      The govt. don't tax them?


      Look at what percent of taxes are paid by each wage bracket. Let me know what you find.

      Alternatively, you can continue to embrace the class warfare rhetoric of your liberal demigods.

      not sure why I'm responding to you since you're absolutely clueless.

      Defense spending, including homeland defense and veteran benefits is 50% of DISCRETIONARY spending. It's 13-14% of TOTAL federal spending.

      Entitlements are about 40% of TOTAL federal spending.

    • That's because the gov't don't tax them....DUHHHHH

      that 25 or 35% corporate tax, that's nothing but a big bullshyt
