    FSYS vs CLNE and WPRT

    I can see nat gas has the potential help the US achieve energy independence, and it simply makes good economic sense. 22 states have asked manufacturers to make more nat gas cars, and nat gas trucks and small commercial vehicles are picking up. I agree this is a good sector. In reviewing some of the other compainies, I am puzzled by their valuations. According to Yahoo, CLNE has no 12 mo. trailing earnings, is selling for twice book value, and 3.3 x sales. WPRT has no trailing 12 mo earnings, is selling for more than 7 times book value, and 4 x sales. Compare FSYS, which does have some earnings. Although the last quarter lost .03 per share, they have about .33 in earnings per share for the trailing 12 months. FSYS is selling for less than book value (16.63 according to Yahoo) and sells for .67 x sales. Less than book value and a fraction of sales, vs. multiples of book value and multiples of sales. I know there is more to a company than just these numbers, but these comparisons are pretty striking. The transcript of the last conference call seems pretty positive. It looks like things are just pushed out a bit, not dropping off Just sayin.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
