To me that's my kind of worry also. I really don't want any of my alternative energy companies to be bought out by these big guys. I hope one of my alternatives becomes a next microsoft. How is it that no one had bought out Microsoft back in their early development days? Guess I'm greedy after all the time I've been in alternatives energy stocks, and don't want to end up with a GE UTX or GM whose stock would hardly move up from buying us or any others.
