    Will the Real Engine Please Stand Up

    It amazes me the interpretations of so many analysts who eventually are proven mistaken with their prognostications. The advent of electric, as evidenced by Tesla, is actually a big plus for WPRT. Why? Because you have to backtrack to where does the energy come from to produce the electricity for the vehicles. Is the energy coal, fuel oil, nuclear, or even natural gas at the power station? The advent of electric vehicles also means even more adoption of natural gas vehicles because it signifies that alternatives are making inroads into traditional fuels for transportation. The salient fact is that the recent adoption rate of natural gas vehicles is much greater than for electric vehicles and will continue to be for years into the future. In addition, many have left out the powerful political and economic influence of Big Oil. Big Oil is not going to idly wait for their enormous natural gas reserves to take back seat to other alternatives. They will promote the use of natural gas vehicles long before the infant electric market begins to gain traction. The fact that natural gas vehicles have a greater adoption rate, are economically feasible, and have the power structure of large oil companies behind it will help WPRT. Avoid the background noise, do your own homework, and look at the handwriting on the wall before you start to put credence in analysts, who often have myopic thinking about WPRT. Lastly, convert to a cash account to stop any perceived manipulation of your shares by short sellers who borrow shares from your broker out of your margin account. Cash accounts are for investors, whereas, margin accounts are for those who do not possess enough sense to be investing.
