Echelon Corporation (ELON) Message Board

    come on children, play nice

    This board is getting so juvenile, it's embarrassing. Why do so many of you feel this need to convince a group of strangers that you are right and they are wrong? Trust me on this, IT DOESN'T MAKE A BIT OF DIFFERENCE. The stock price does not move based on anything said here, and if you don't believe that, you are delusional.

    It's trading in the low 20s because nobody knows what 2008 will bring. If Echelon fails to get any of their contracts, it will go lower. If they get all of their contracts, it will go MUCH higher. Right now, it's all speculation. Just because chipsteak says echelon technology is not the future, doesn't mean a thing. It is his OPINION, based on his research. Just because elonverylong says Echelon technology will rule the world, doesn't mean a thing. It is his OPINION, based on his research. The ONLY thing that matters is what the Governments, Utility companies, fast food restaurants, etc. think of the technology.

    We all can agree that energy conservation is the future, and that genius that said it isn't, well, there's one born every minute. Echelon doesn't need to get the whole pie, just a nice big slice of it, and I will be very happy with my investment.

    Anyone who thinks that Echelon insiders are "dumping" shares to escape a shinking ship doesn't understand how public companies operate. It is so ridiculous, I am surprised anyone even responds to such nonsense.

    Which brings me back to the most puzzling part of these boards. I understand why a group of strangers, who have a common investment in a stock, would gather here to discuss their investment. What I absolutely cannot understand is why someone with no vested interest in the stock would waste their time trying to convince everyone that they made a bad investment. Is it an ego thing? When the stock drops like Echelon has recently, do you feel the uncontrollable drive to come here with the obligatory "I told you so", like a teenager? Do you do this with other stocks, or just this one? If you are invested in an Echelon competitor, do you really think posting here is going to help your stock in any way?

    It all comes down to dollars and cents, and the numbers that come out every 90 days. At this time next year, we will all have a clearer picture of what the future holds for Echelon and it's shareholders. In the meantime, can't we all just get along?

    • The most beatiful post in this board!

      "The stock price does not move based on anything said here".
      But it looks like when I say something some people in this board think I want to "manipulate" or "influence" the market!

      Johny,

      If you look around you will see: I seldon say something about the stocks I buy or sell. If I decide to say something is always a contrarian opinion.

      When I decided to short ELON ( and I have nacked calls, puts, short stocks) I saw the message board with full of pumpers saying STRONG BUY, so I decided to help the board and give my contrairy opinion. As you realize they can't stand someone saying the truth about ELON. ELON, their baby! with 400% gain! But they show me no respect... See my posts as a public service.

      NO, I AM NOT LONG ITRI.
      YES, I ONLY SHORT CRAP, LOSING MONEY, OVERVALUED STOCKS
      NO, I DON'T BUY COS LOSING MONEY
      YES, I ONLY GO LONG COS MAKING MONEY

    • Yeah.
