About Seeking Alpha - I thought it was a computer stock picking program (which are worthless).
Company on its web sites claim over 1 million people have signed up to recieve its email recommendations. I'm note a fan of these services, but they claim to impact share price. Guess we'll see on Tueday if its $60 price target moves ADA-ES
Seeking Alpha is a platform for investment research, with broad coverage of stocks, asset classes, ETFs and investment strategy. In contrast to other equity research platforms, insight is provided by investors and industry experts rather than sell-side analysts. Seeking Alpha has three outstanding characteristics:
Breadth: Seeking Alpha has remarkably broad coverage of stocks, including more than 3,000 small and mid cap stocks covered in the past year.
Depth: With over 7,000 contributing authors and 20,000 commenters, insight and discussion are informed and sophisticated.
Influence: Seeking Alpha articles frequently move stocks, due to a large and influential readership which includes money managers, business leaders, journalists and bloggers.
Nice volume for first 30 minutes of trading. Like to see the volume because it allows sellers who've hit their targets to exit. This said, I've learned the best thing to do is to not try to guess a top. Forward PE is still really low (if they deliver).
MD – I think you are referring to Zacks and TheStreet. Seeking Alpha is a site that promotes amateur articles. There are hundreds submitted every day. Some are written by college-age people and others written by investors with decades of experience. Personally, I’ve never put much credence into one’s personal opinion about a company, be it an analyst for Blackrock or an average Joe. Reason is, I don’t entirely trust the reasoning behind these opinions. So many are for the self-servingness of the individual/investment firm rather than the true unbiased benefit of the investor. I did think the Seeking Alpha article titled, “Turning Coal into Cash” was well written and of benefit.
But in the end, I do not want the stock running ahead of itself. I do not want investors to get caught up in the euphoria. I’d rather see it priced appropriately now and have management come through on all fronts. In time, we will continue to rise toward our collective price target. To hit $60 or even $50 in the near-term is simply pulling on that rubber band and stretching us which, if management fails to hit their goals, will snap us hard back to reality.
