Energy Conversion Devices (ENER) Message Board

    ROFL - I doubled my portfolio Trading ENER!

    Who in here doesnt want to make money? Any investor will tell you its all about timing, and timing is critical when dealing with stocks. Energy Conversion (NasdaqNM: ENER) is one of those stock picks and continues to trade at a volatility rate. I would recommend that trading ENER technicalities and ENER news reports is the strategy that carries the lowest risk. A small rally could be expected as Energy Conversion is standing at -4.6094 from its 52 week high. You can get all this info by visiting...

    • >>Any investor will tell you its all about timing, and timing is critical when dealing with stocks.<< (wallace)

      Yep. And, any genuinely intelligent investor will also know that, if a stock can be manipulated, timing can be controlled. For example, if you buy enough the price will likely rise. Then, trend followers and momentum players will, following their investing “recipes”, jump in and drive the price yet higher – at which point the manipulating entity sells his shares; and the price will very likely drop. The manipulating entity again “enjoys” excellent timing. What a surprise!

      The above manipulation game has long been recognized as a hazard for small-cap companies – simply because a “small” amount of money is all that is required to implement it. But, now, massive investing entities (hedge funds and the like) have huge sums to work with – and, these funds are amplified greatly by using margin (hedging creates safety for heavy margining). So, companies of nearly any size can be manipulated! I think it obvious that this “game” has grown – under grossly ineffective regulation by the SEC – to massive proportions. Result: the stock market is now mainly a con game. (This is not just my view – it is now supported by quite a few. And, it is pretty obvious, anyway.)

      How can individual investors win against the above? I say, only by **investing in companies** -- not stocks. Of course, that has to be by buying stocks. But, buying-and-long-term-holding – based on genuine inquiry into the true fundamentals for the company -- IS investing! (Just ask Warren Buffet how well this works!).

      • Thank you Ray for that spot on assessment. (I forgot to change the title)

        It's tough being a small investor in a company that you believe in when the stock market is rife with manipulation and gaming of the system.

        I think our biggest problem is the banks which appear to have bought/lobbied our political system. One just has to look at the revolving door policy between Goldman Sachs and the highest levels of our government. It has resulted in making it an uneven playing field in favor of the banks, who, in spite of these breaks, are still borderline insolvent due to their endless greed that was exposed during the 2008 sub-prime mortgage market collapse. In a much smaller matter, former management lending over a million shares to Credit Suisse for shorting in return for a loan has not helped much either

        You are right about investing in the company. Energy Conversion has the IP and equipment to help our country bridge the gap between a limited energy supply of fossil fuel (a finite amount of stored sun energy from plant life of past eons) to an endless energy supply of current sun energy.

        The longer the energy transition to alternatives takes to be implemented, the greater will be the probility of total collapse of the old structures, with resulting civil unrest when energy needs for food and transportation can no longer be adequately met.

        I wonder if the greedy banks (with MM's that have a licence to naked short and with units that operate like highly leveraged hedge funds) along with the other hedge funds have taken that into consideration.
