I think there are 46 investors of record for HOKU. Owned a penny stock once that had 1004 investors of record and it had a quiet message board.
OT - interesting note the other day that China surpassed the USA in monthly auto sales (january-2009). That wasn't supposed to happen until 2015. // Shanghai is going to demolish the old Jewish quarter. Preservationist's opposition to the plan to preserve the 70 acres of "New Viena", in existance since 1939, does not look good, as business men and government leaders want to proceed. Citing if they do not move now, Shanghai's traffic flow will deteriorate. // Numerous auto clubs have sprung up in China. One club, started 3 years ago with 600 members, has now grown to 16,000. The founder related that he put on 50,000 miles last year.Noting that most members want to see historical China, and do not want the hurried schedules of bus tour companies. He also cited the new, and improved highway systems opening up the country. // All aboard the magical mystery tour. Gotta see the 3 Rivers Gorge dam and take some pictures of towns before they are buried in progress.
China still plans to keep the price of gasoline artificially low. As it builds out its car-nation model to pay for it. China has billions to spend on acquiring the resources it needs to employ tens of millions, if not hundreds, in steel, rubber, glass, asphalt, machinery, and other industries, in its massive expansion. Oil use still grows at 10 percent like India. The USA, with 6-percent of the worlds population, consumes 1/4 of the worlds daily oil production is in a slow down mode. Which helps the rest of the world use our carnation model for expansion. A model that depends on cheap oil.
