    Someone told me over several years to buy Vale and Whole Foods. It appears someone really has a grudge against Plug and can't help telling us repeatedly how much they Hate them in their articles. Got sick and tired with the bashing. I like my chances better with Plug than Vale or Whole Foods and feel I can do better on my own, thank you very much. As for the bashers, I see a growing flock of crow circling.......

    Seen enough, heard enough Jim. Continue to read the baseless bashing of Plug for the clicks. No longer watch, no longer a fan, renewal notice not taking place this year. Sorry, calling to cancel tomorrow, Followed religiously for past two years, lost me on Vale, Whole Foods, Yelp and others. Learned to due my own due diligence. Thanks for that important, indirect lesson. True story. Peace.

    I saw a picture of the first Hyundai fuel cell vehicles being offloaded from a ship that someone posted yesterday. It looks like the new 2014's have arrived. Look up Hyundai's website for this fuel cell car that is going first it looks to the Tucson market. I am especially pleased as an investor that Plug is going to partner with Hyundai on fuel cell technology that is going to Asia. It looks like the final details are being worked out unilaterally by the end of July. With over 150 patents, Plug appears to be building their brand while forming strategic partnerships that can only solidify their future growth going forward. Consider the current levels a bargain considering the price is well below the last secondary. I am sure that investor that purchased all those shares did plenty of due diligence and has a better perception of what lies ahead than any of us.........Good luck to those with a little patience.........

    Google Hyundai fuel cell cars. Saw where they were unloading 2014s from a ship, they are arriving. Plug has formed an agreement to work with them developing fuel cells in Asia with details to be worked out in late July from what I have read. Read about their new car on their website, pretty amazing. Pretty exciting for Plug, the leader in fuel cell technology with 150 patents. Due your own due diligence and watch the head fake by those wanting your shares. Be patient, remember you are investing in a momentum stock with high growth potential.

    Well done, yes people should look up Benzinga Report on Plug which highlights last call. Looks like Memphis is first Hydrogen facility and it appears Saab is indeed in play in the relationship overseas. Institutions are watching closely as Plug will be knocking on the back door of $5.00 near term. Can't think of a better spot to begin a position in your IRA than right now with Plug. Don't wait for those expert analyists to rate it a buy, as when they do, they will already have built their position and up considerably.

    That is why I invested in Plug and all of the patents I will reap from. I firmly believe I will see them acquired before then north of $25. If you can be patient and accumulate, you should be rewarded nicely. Meanwhile, my crystal ball is pointing to a massive infrastructure roll out for hydrogen by Plug or close connections. I hope it is right, can't help but believe some positive news about Plug will be forthcoming in the near term. They have many projects in test stages and the cash to execute. Sleep well!

    Walmart Saves Through Fuel Cells

    Walmart is at the forefront. They are working with GE I read to install LED lighting installations. They have very radical aerodynamic truck cabs that have been produced as prototypes, and they use LNG liquified natural gas trucks more and more for long haul operations. Speaking on cutting edge, they invested in a leader in material handling that uses technology to increase battery performance, which can be used in many other industries worldwide. The patented technology has been tried and proven over the years and the company is just now ready to produce in volume thanks to growing market acceptance and recent large scale orders. The company is called Plug, and some believe will be ripe for picking as a takeover target when they hit over drive.
    This is my piece, not written for profit or required to feed my family. If you believe, lets see how many thumbs up you want to give this..........G.L Long and strong!

    Hope your right. Things could go either way, if it was positive you would have sell on the news if it was up back where it just came from. The cake was baked into the secondary, some didn't like it and found an excuse to take profits. That too will pass, at this price it is too tempting not to at least establish a position FOR THE LONG HAUL, say 3-5 years at least. Plug and RAD remain my two favorites, both have made me money in the past and look forward to them doing the same in the years ahead. Try to filter out the noise, do your own due diligence and remember their are motives every time the experts open their mouths or pen their thoughts to feed there family..........

    Sent him an email today I won't be renewing subscription. Got talked into Vale, Whole foods and Yelp and held. Told him I know their position on Plug, once is enough as I have heard more than enough as a subscriber. They, it would seem are paid by the article, any positive news and they attach the same sell article they have used for a month. It would also seem they have an agenda as in shorting Plug and bashing the company relentlessly. Never seen it to this extreme. The articles by some will eventually give Plug the thumbs up, but by the time you read them, the writer may already be up 10 to 20%. Just realize "the experts" all have an agenda. Also note Plug has the cash to make things happen domestically as well as internationally and that they have well healed and well known customers in their camp. I can look out 6-18 months and hang tight, may not like it, but didn't buy Plug as a trade, but rather an investment into the future. G.L.

    By many on the board and in their articles, they can't see past their nose today or next week. It has been said that often when the tide is overly bearish and fearful, it is best to avoid the noise before the experts get back on board. Certainly wouldn't hurt at this level to do some nibbling as any negative news has long been baked into the cake...........Lets all read this again in December 2014........Odds are better it will be much higher

  • hotairballoonist by hotairballoonist May 9, 2014 9:35 AM Flag

    I have bought some GE recently and see their hands into everything including Fuel Cells. Often it is easier to acquire the leader in the space, rather than to engineer and acquire new customers from scratch. Lets watch this play out in the next 18 months, I think we have just witnessed a huge head fake with many trying to catch the train since it has returned to the station. Remember who the key clients are here with Plug and who would love to have those cemented relationships going forward. Stay tuned and congrats to those who are able to establish a new position at this bargain sale price. Enjoy the ride back up in 2014

    With 30% float action it has been all about shorting and geo-political. No one wanted to buy into, just waiting for the entry point which once again has arrived. Please continue shorting, why leave your party now. With plenty of cash to execute, this is not about today, but rather 7 months and longer, 5 years from now. Reread their strategies and website. Too many short term day traders on this blog living off daily pin action........

    to pick your spot to establish a position or cost average down to a more reasonable cost average down. Fully expect it be over $6 by year end once it once again gains favor, and it will. You will hear all about it by the experts who bought in weeks earlier and managed to get on the train this time.

    Sole investor in secondary has no reason to lose sleep near term, their cost average probably is now lower and will reap the benefits in 2014

    Going up. It is not that people don't agree with their potential, the problem lies in the fact that people are allowed to bet against the race horse on the track going up with 30% short interest. Simply, Wall Street is a casino with the ability of those without the equity to borrow shares to bet against it

  • hotairballoonist by hotairballoonist May 6, 2014 8:21 AM Flag

    Not because short position of 30%, but because there is so much negativity that has hammered this $1.30 below last secondary. Do yourself a favor, revisit plugs website and look into what areas they are working in and all of the grants that have helped make it possible. The past is the past. As a long, I bought in realizing what my investment would be 5 years from now. Make no mistake, I didn't expect the sell off, but initially learned my lesson at $4.70 by selling as it was going up. I missed the ride up. Naysayers and game show hosts will all once again endorse PLUG only after they have their new position safely tucked away from the earlier week position. They have won as they drove the price down to where they can safely establish a position, they missed the train before and regretted that decision. Now with a seat on the train, watch the endorsements fly, especially with positive news in the weeks and months ahead. I will soon be cutting my cost average by 30% on the way up, the sale is on. $5.00 is just around the corner once again, and we all know what that will mean as institutions will once again be taking bets and adding positions. Enjoy the ride back up everyone. All aboard!
