    Bigfatty, do you even know what a Ponzi scheme is?

    Save it to say, this is not one.

    Also, to say that because some Douglas guy made a series of bad investments in American Superconductor and that somehow corralates to this is ridiculous.

    This stock is also owned by T. Boone Pickens and George Soros, whom I'm sure did not by AMSC.

    Regardless of all your scare tactics the company, and the industry have very good futures, based upon fundamentals.

    The fact that I was able to pick it up at 38.30 is interesting, it's good to buy big dips in great companies.

    As for your scare tactics, perhaps you should join Muddy Waters a well known shorting firm that put out scare hype.

    • I don't give a !@#k who owns this. If I know a bad business is being pumped and dumped, I short it. WPRT or AMSC? I don't care. I'll sell you suckers 7-days to Sunday. Short FSLR since $122 anyone???

      Scare tactics? Nah. I'm just good at shorting ponzi fraud pump and dump b*s. Clearly I've been right over the target since $45 on WPRT. We don't need to discuss short NFLX at $286, short AMSC $40, short DRYS $110, short GS $194...nah. Let's just focus on WPRT and it heading to $6. I'm right. All the pumpers wrong. Suckers wanted.

      • Well bigfatty, you certainly are proving the merits of your mind from your post.

        If you did in fact short the stocks you mentioned those were good calls, however your legitamacy seems to be suspect based upon your actions.

        If a stock is ridiculously overvalued as DRYS was, it will fall on its own merits, your spreading of scare tactics will help your cause very little.

        Regardless, your a pumper, however in the other direction, if the company was a ponzi scheme, which is an impossible definition for a public firm (again, showing your sophistication) it would have probably been discovered by now.

        And you never name BSG or whatever firm you say gives this a price target of 8 or so, not that I listen to analysts, as they are often hucksters for the trading desks.

        And you failed to mention any miraculous short calls on Chinese internet stocks, not that it was difficult to spot that.

        So go on fatty, go on with your small, angry, and bitter ways, and perhaps, perhaps, read a book, start small though, the cat in the hat maybe.

      • I'll say this bigfatty is colorful! One thing is for sure this stock is very volatile and there's room to make money on both sides of the swing. I'm surprised to see $38 as that's below the channel I was tracking so I'm going to watch it and see how right bigfatty might be, at least until I see a positive upturn - hope you're making some big bucks here bigfatty! Luck all! :)
