I read the article. Thanks for sharing it. I'm guessing that if the utility industry can make their case that smart meters are net energy savers and thus some how good for the environment then the news media will leave them alone for the most part. Also, when you look at all of the messed up things happening in the world right now smart meters look like a pretty minor issue in the over all news perspective.
Anyways, I like this industry and I've wanted to scale into ITRI for a long time. The price weakness over the past couple of days has given me a chance to start a new position.
I think patience with this thing will be rewarded over time. It might be a bumpy ride though. It's all good. I'll add on weakness.
