    Outlook Looks Bleak for OPTT

    I like wavepower technology and beleave it has a future. That being said, if you study the technology you'll quickly discover that their PowerBuoy® is not only expensive compared to other approaches, i.e. breakwater based systems, but inherently less reliable and maintainable as a result. I think companies like SDE will eventually eat these guys lunch. They are on a trajectory for bankruptcy in my opinion. Also its cheaper to protect your investment with a breakwater system I can guard from shore compared to a OPTT PowerBuoy® that I have to protect from a boat. This company reminds me of the Burning Man at the festival of the same name. Only its slowly burning through cash until its no more!
