      • well a couple things going on now... Gaiam, the founder of RSOL... is divorcing and divesting itself from RSOL... much to the relief of RSOL... as Gaiam used RSOL as a support means... and did not help it... but used RSOL to pump up GAIA or Gaiam. Gaiam itself is losing money... and small... while RSOL is doing about as WELL AS SOLAR CITY the company of Elon Musk. Musk's SCTY does about 50 percent more biz than RSOL, but its valuation is around 2.5 billion. It is also losing more money per share I believe than RSOL. RSOL should be selling around 24 dollars a share... compared to Solar City. The current three bucks a share is a joke price for this company... but this company is in process of moving out of the mother's house... so that she can't hurt RSOL anymore... LOL

        Then, there is a stock dilution that happened... and GAIAM continues to hold RSOL shares. Kind of like a three hundred pound lady hanging onto the lifeguard who is trying to save her. If RSOL can shoot Gaiam, and compete on a level playing field... this stock is undervalued. But, with all the profit taking going on by GAIA, you would never know the stock has run. And it still can't seem to get free of Gaiam... as it will continue to own shares, and I think bought the private placement of three million shares... after selling off six million shares for a profit. GAIA bought the stock for 2.75 a share a couple weeks ago... that it had sold six mill of at 4.50 a share. So there ya go. I think.

      • solar retail deployment is picking up in the USA. Also the whole industry is expected to grow in the coming years, oposite from the last 5-7 years.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy
