More than anything the big boys of investment hate to be dead wrong . So rather than admit failure they throw more money at their mistake by mercilessly shorting , paying for rag articles and downgrades , hiring ten dollar an hour bashers to throw doubt into anyone thinking of speculating an investment . Ballard turned a .02 profit in Q4 2013 and in the recent CC has stated a 40% increase for 2014 . Throwing more money and dirt at BLDP will not work as they will have a PE by year end after showing a profit for 2014 . Ballards client list continues to grow and there are several new deals in the works . The 2014 guidance was for what was already booked that number will only get bigger .
It's too bad they never issue an apology to their clients stating that they missed the boat. The only way they can help their situation is to drive the price towards their goal. If it's $14 on Friday they will probably issue a sell notice but still not apologize that their clients could have done well as it doubled once they issued their hold. Alternative energy stocks will be up 10x in 2014 as China pollution visibility become acts of desperation.
