Here is something quite new and different from the past five years:
1) The completion of a 400kv ACCC line. CPTC is “committed to providing Amprion with high efficiency ACCC® conductor solutions for Germany's high voltage transmission grid." August 2, 2010: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Composite-Technology-iw-1601926345.html?x=0&.v=1
2) The development of ACCC T-2. “The North American potential of this NEW product is greater than $200 million per year.” See page 10: http://media.marketwire.com/attachments/EZIR/362/574831_1ShareholderPresentation.pdf
Now, what is ACCC T-2? It is two ACCC cored STRANDED wires, braided together. Yep. You heard me right. Every inch of that product has TWO cores. Question: Exactly WHO is ordering this?
If you are talking about the price of CPTC's stock, the Market says that on 8/17/10 the stock had a "key reversal." Key reversals often indicate a trend change.
That is not MY definition... It is just a technical fact. On 8/17/10, the stock:
1) Gapped down to a new low at .175.
2) But then later that day rallied and closed at .21, sharply above the previous day's high of 19.
Since 8/17/10, the stock has put in a short term base with a "flat top" of 21, hitting 21 cents nineteen days out of twenty six days.
This four week bottom also complements the twelve month coiling base.
Now, of course the stock might NOT break out.... but... if it does it will have the power of the short and mid-term bases to push the price through past support/resistance areas.
But why would it do that fundamentally? Well, for one, look at the topic of this subject. New products? With a 20 cent stock? Not the actions of a typical 20 cent stock.
NOT typical for a 20 cent stock, basher-from-Mercury.
THAT is what has my attention. New products, hiring like crazy, new STRANDERS, Far East new LARGE order yet to be reported by CPTC, ect.
I believe they have made it, lil' butty.
Now, CPTC is not talking total sales greater than $200 million....
They are just talking about their ACCC t-2 sales...
20 cent stock.... Hiring like crazy... coming out with new products .... New STRANDERS signing up....
Not exactly actions of a company at 20 cents.
Can you answer this subject, basher?
Dude, why do you change IDs and pretend to be a stoned out nut-case?
Hey, I am just quoting the news. CPTC is CURRENTLY coming out with new developments/products. Seems kind of strange for a 20 cent stock... unless they think that they will soon be more than 20 cents, right?
20 cent stocks are most often "closing all the hatches." They are NOT normally 1) getting new partnerships, 2) coming out with new products, 3) hiring like crazy, 4) having dinner with the president of the USA., 5) etc.
T, Nexans manufactures most of their conductors in "twisted" formation and considers a lay of 8 to 10 feet as a very long lay.
ACSR-II Overhead Conductors are manufactured from two standard ACSR conductors which are twisted together with a very long lay (8-10 feet). This simple cable design is very effective in reducing ice loading and wind-induced conductor motion, and the costly damage that these can cause.
AAC (all aluminum conductor) and AAAC (all aluminum alloy conductor) are also available in the twisted configuration, and are identified as AAC-II and AAAC-II respectively.
This is a twisted pair of stranded aluminum
conductors twisted around each other.This style resists wind-induced motion in two ways. First, the constantly varying diameter prevents buildup of resonant vibration in the line. Second, the low torsional stiffness reduces motion-causing wind forces to ineffective levels. These mechanical
properties eliminate galloping, reduce aeolian
vibration and control subconductor oscillation.
There is also higher conductor tensions, resulting in less sag and longer spans.
Electrically, it operates at lower
temperatures and has a lower AC resistance than
a single conventional conductor with the same
hello harrior - this may be another way of saying it
common round conductors when subject to wind blown freezing rain collect ice which eventually forms a tail running the length of the conductor -- this "tail" extends as the wind blown rain continues to freeze on the conductor until it actually achieves the shape similar to that of a airplane wing and the winds cause the conductor to "fly" in a whipping action - that results in galloping conductors
there are a few ways to avoid galloping conductors -- sometimes utilities attach a wrapped device mid-span -- some new conductors are shaped in a flat/twisted configuration -- and others are like CTC new wire -- two strands twisted together
each of these will not allow ice to collect as described above and thus will avoid the phenominum
these conductors are needed mostly on E/W running lines subject to N-S winds in the winter
Iv seen it close up and personal.
