    WPRT Motely Fool Stock Suckered People

    This stock is a big scam and I have lost all my money in it so far investing in its options. What a pile of crap, these motely fools sold folks. If you follow Motely Fool you deserve to loose your shirt folks. It hit $50 only to come down under $40 going to $10. Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

    • First, don't play options, second, don't buy hype, great company, I waited for it to come down, I'm in cash bought stock 6 points below where the insiders bought.

    • By the way, the Motley fools started to hype wprt at about $32. They got the right stock. It will be $56 in 9/12. This is not a casino, only if you want it to be.

    • To buy wprt at $50 was a sucker play. But as I have followed and owned this stock for 2 years, I knew that. I'm in at 15, 17, 21, 27, and yes more at 40. The news from CMI was not good for wprt. However, I will be a buyer again when it hits and holds 43.50 for a few days and this stock will be over $100 within 18 months. Options are a tough play on this stock. By the way, I did sell 1/2 my position at 48.75, it was moving to fast. Here are 5 stocks that are all good for the nat gas event, they all should be only bought on the dips, I have. Wprt.Gtls, lng. arg.hk. These 5 will give u a 40%+ return each year for the next 3 years.Don't buy any on big run ups, no rush. Good Luck

      • a fair price for the stock at the end of the year is 38
        They are not going to sell a lot any where in the world this year
        Lets sat 250% increase in Us ans 100% out side the US
        That would still not put them making money.So how do you come up with these dream prices
        Yes they will make money some time
        But this price of 38 is what you would pay in a couple of years,maybe 5 years
        So they are profitable in two years at what I think the profit will be
        38 would be a pe of 80
        So you think the stock should be double that and in two years have a pe of 160
        So when do you think they will make money anf what should the pe be
        support that with the profit and no of vehicles and how much per vehicle
        In a year or two average will be less than 20,000 with out tank and befor overhead thats 3.000 per vehicle
        will spend around 1,000 on research.right now its 50%
        another 1000 in overhead
        That leaves 1,000 in profit at most
        So we will give it a pe of 80
        Divide 80,000 that into double is stock price
        Thats a lot of vehicles
        A lot more than they are going to be selling

    • Another way to look at a fuel cell
      Its a battery that uses hydrogen and oxygen and produces water
      a battery can be recharged
      fuell cell no
      Why/
      Because hydrogen and oxygen are gases not liquid like in a battery

    • You must be the one who bought my covered calls for 4.30 per share (you got too love it I say back up the truck here)

    • Yes, this is a newsletter scam. Japanese have now developed a water powered car. Also electricity is going to be so cheap, provided by electric plants powered by natural gas, that an elctric car will make more sense. Diesel and gasoline will remain an option because of lighter weight cars and better engine technology, natural gas delivers much less power. If natural gas engines were so in demand, many companies would develop the technology because the technology is not that unique and the profit margins will be lowered.This stock has a long way to fall, I'm going to short it big time and make a lot of money that way. A lot of stocks that are highly rated by fool and other newsletters talk you into buying while they are on the way out.

      • Camvest,
        This company has nothing to do with cars (automobiles). Only concerns itself with trucks at this point in time. Thus its partnership with Cummins Motors. These are large engines as big as 15 litres. I wish I wasn't so lazy but I haven't converted that to cubic inches yet) They are also working with a co. in China, Weichai Power, on a sort of
        hybrid" diesel/ nat gas 12 litre engine. These things are powerful. If you're going to worry about stuff, at least worry about stuff that's actually worrisome, like where is the infrastructure (fueling stations) going to come from. Look to Clean Energy (CLNE) for some of that.
        Be good every chance you get.

      • You either no nothing or do not say the truth
        Its a hydrogen car
        It takes as much energy to make hydrogen as you get when you use it in a car

        You have to use electricity to make the hydrogen so it is no cleanor than burning ng in car or truck
        Unless you are using wind or solar
        Thars a lot moe cost than using ng in a car or truck

      • You better cover! this baby is going up Today was a gift

    • TIGITH98,
      What you might not know is that the motley fool recommended WPRT at about $17.00 last year. I waited and didn't buy it, so that's my bad. Now I'm frustrated as hell because I'm in at 39.17 and it looks like it might go down in the $20's because Congress isn't worried about the Natural Gas Act which would give trucking companies as much as a $64,000 tax "rebate" for converting their biggest trucks to Nat Gas. The rebates go are less for smaller trucks in a graduated scale. Anyway, when we get pushed into a corner by high oil prices (I don't know when that will be) WPRT is pretty well situated to benefit greatly. on Natural Gas conversion.

    • As I have said
      Just look the last time they issued stock
      Was about 18
      Sold done to 15
      thats about a 20% correction
      So the stock will trade about 20% less than this issue for a low and give it 6 months and than trade about 10% higher
      So as I have said a month ago
      You start buying at 42 1/3 in
      1/3 at 40
      and all in at 38
      I also said sell most at 48

    • Awe you lost money and its everyone elses fault now your mad. Too BAD

    • WPRT fluctuating 15-20% per month is normal, if you follow the chart history. Hang in there and you will be rewarded. You've only "lost" if you sell short.

      If you don't have the stomach for a volatile stock, buy something like MCD. [for the record, I am also long on MCD.]
