If you sell in the money puts, then you can leverage up without paying margin interest and get a little time premium also. Just have to be careful to not over do it or you can get in trouble fast in a down market.
Note that Oct options also expired today. Oct was a big options month for WPRT, as this month started trading last winter so there was a lot of open interest. This can cause high volume and volatility as the positions unwind.
If all those things you say are true, then why are you wasting your time on a Yahoo message board. Get a life and enjoy what your money can do for you. You can't take it with you.
VANCOUVER , Oct. 6, 2014 /CNW/ - Cummins Westport Inc. (CWI) today announced that Rob Neitzke , currently General Manager of the Construction Segment of Cummins off-highway engine business, has been appointed as President of CWI effective January 1 , 2015.
Positive EBIDTA means no need for new funding. It's a big deal. And if they are on that path, then the burn down rate for the cash is slowing. All the bashers are not even considering cost cutting efforts that are also going on within the company. WPRT management does need to face reality and consider layoffs if needed.
Good chance they would get bought or taken private (same thing). If the technology and long term demand is there, but the management isn't up to snuff, then someone will be interested in snatching them up and fixing the management issues.
You are determined to make your point over and over again that management lied. Just like us, they don't have a crystal ball and things change that are unpredictable. Did WPRT management know their would be Russian sanctions when they provided their guidance? Could they predict that oil was going to crash? Could they accurately predict the slow down in China and Europe? You have no credibility because you keep implying that management knew these answers and lied to shareholders when they released 2nd quarter earnings.
This is why WPRT is a better investment than CLNE now. WPRT at least has a play on China.
I'm amazed how many posters don't seem to know something that simple. They can't buy until after earnings are released. If we are still sitting down here then, you would hope some of them would step up to the plate and show their vote of confidence.
The general sales number is 855-978-9464. Do some DD and call them.
Why don't you call the company instead of ask a Yahoo message board?
WPRT seems to have a lot more opportunity for something to hit. Suppose the Oil / NG price spread doesn't favor NG Engines in US in near term. This should be a bigger problem for CLNE than WPRT, as China may still role out NG trucks for other reasons (emissions). Of course the percentage drop in diesel fuel prices doesn't equal percentage drop in oil prices.
