    -Ive been buying this stock and holding for several years now. I've not sold a single share through the entire process. Well, Ive traded some but kept adding more and more. I own other stocks but this one intrigues me the most for gamebreaking technology potential. I never would of thought the stock would of hit this low again, nor did I ever think poly prices would decrease 93% in a 4 year time period, nor did I expect grid parity to be reached in several countries now in solar.

    • Interesting how you decided to interpret it… As we all know, no one can predict the future and future of any specific stock—much less its price. We all just tried to extrapolate based on what we know, our experience, and our individual assessment of the present situation and project it into the future. In Wall Street, future is called a risk.

      First of all, please don’t take our assessments or predictions too seriously. Obviously, we are bunch of armatures, especially and most importantly we have very limited access to necessary information to actually make decent predictions. We also lack the sufficient firepower and influence to bend the future outcomes to our advantage. If you are Icahn or Ackman, yes, you would have the necessary information, firepower, and influence to perhaps bend the future outcome to your advantage, etc.

      It doesn’t mean that we are totally inept and always make wrong predictions. One advantage we have over the epic battle of billionaires is that, since we lack what they have, we incline to inherently think outside of the box.

      As far as you finding my predictions inconsistent, have you ever consider that perhaps your thinking is inconsistent? If you are not sure, I suggest that you go back and read it again. Quite frankly, I am not sure what you are talking about? Likewise, if you are kind enough to post prediction of your own that is different than mine, I am sure everyone would appreciate your effort. In that case, I would make an effort to reconcile our differing point view.

      I actually thought about responding to clarify your confusion then I found follow posting of yours and decided not.

      Hangman,
