    I'm out of this good investment

    I have been in the stock for 6 weeks and had half a position. I have been perplexed by the trading and have decised that the stock is being manipulated. The news has been great but the trading is bad. I don't like being in these manipulated stocks, so I'm out. On my work the stock should be in a $60 - $80 channel. I would rather buy back at a higher price when I feel the momentum is going up. There are too many stocks moving up right now to be in one that the shorts are controlling. I expect this stock to reach $300 - $500 in the next 3 - 4 years so I'll have plenty of time to buy back when these manipulators start to cover.

    Good luck. This is a good board and I will continue to read it. Thanks for all the good input.

    • High short position in this stock means that shorts do not have much success to drive it PPS down to the level they will comfortably cover. Same situation with PEIX and especially with MXWL. Now, with incredible diversified and quite successful R&D achievements ENER offers the most dense bombardment of positive PR announcements then any Hi-Tech venture stock on the market. Perfect opportunity for mild swing-trading. And do not forget to have some core position in ENER, because you would hate to miss the train, even for small core investment.

    • I have been perplexed by the trading and have decised that the stock is being manipulated. The news has been great but the trading is bad. I don't like being in these manipulated stocks, so I'm out----Yes there is minipulation by the shorts but the big problem is still the longs who continue to throw stock on the market every day.This market is hitting new highs every day so many people have big profits that they need to offset with loses --where are these loses-- in ecd down over 20 points off its high.this selling will continue to grow as the year comes to an end.The selling will continue to grow as ecd management continues to tell us nothing about ongoing businesses.The selling will continue to grow when ecd reports lower earnings caused by wild spending by stan and stemple on 10 year out projects trying to get as much out of stan while he is still alive.I once had a dream that that one day ecd would have a hybrid battery factory--- announced 6 companies would produce oum products --be sold out on solar panels etc etc--WELL ITS COME THROUGH AND STILL THIS POS GOES DOWN--MAYBE I WAS WRONG THAT THE TECH WOULD OUT DO ANYTHING NEGATIVE STAN AND STEMPLE WOULD DO TO THE COMPANY--MAYBE IM WRONG???????????

      Correct, IMO � and pretty obvious. I think it is safe to conclude that any stock that is volatile will be manipulated � simply because it can be and there are vast sums committed to such trading.

      >>On my work the stock should be in a $60 - $80 channel. I would rather buy back at a higher price when I feel the momentum is going up.

      I choose to just be patient, but your observations are well taken

      BTW, IMO, large-$ traders use both shorting and buying to their advantage � which comes mainly from being able to initiate short term trends, up and down, rather than just following them. And, even if they want to end up eventually with stock to hold, they can acquire their shares at better prices by first manipulating the stock down � then up, and so forth.

      The SEC � our elected legislators, really � have allowed the stock market to become a �loaded-dice� gambling medium, re short-term trading � a horrendous problem that makes the Enron scandal look puny.

      In the longer run, though, ECD has such a strong technology & marketing position that I do not see it failing to deliver its promise.
