Looks like mostly scared shorts and paid bashers here. Childish posts - what grown-up does that "Timberrrr" thing?. The secondary is non-dilutive and probably tax-driven (you've heard about plans to raise the capital gains tax, right?) Anyone checked the weather on the west coast recently. It's Sandy redux out there. And with the nitwits in Congress pulling back on spending, there's not much chance of an upgraded grid to make generators unnecessary. This company is prospering, and the investors are executing their exit strategy. Business as usual. Looks like a chance to pick up some more cheap shares.
The next couple of quarters should be good ones, especially when you take into account Hurricane Sandy and its affects in the Northeast. Just that alone, will help future quarters. I will buy a generator in January, waiting for the "rush" to subside a bit. Maybe the rest of the country doesn't care anymore at this point, but these people are still suffering - I've been down there - in fact yesterday in Long Beach - still a mess. Mountains of garbage! No heating, destruction. People who were doing ok before the Storm, are in bad shape, you have to be there to understand - alot of sad stories.
I agree and legislators are looking at forcing large gas stations to buy generators to prevent those situations where gasoline was in the ground tanks but the stations had no power to pump. A lot of my neighbors are talking about buying generators as well as small shop owners. Most are waiting for the holidays to end, but if another storm threatens we will see a run on supplies.
