    Another day for Ace taking it in the shorts. Enjoy another -4% drubbing? Two days in a row. Maybe your hype is wrong? Nevermind this POS is down nearly $10. Pretty soon anyone that's purchased this pump and dump dog within 2 years will have LOST money. Who cares what the company does? The stock is horrible. I told you this is why insider WOULD AND DID dump millions of $$$ in shares. And here we are....

    BFG cuts WPRT to SELL. Target $6

    I do not believe--like AMSC back when--WPRT is anywhere near a bottom. While I have a [lowered] price target of $6 now, it's very likely I will lower it again (just like I did with AMSC) if I don't see certain things by $6. Easily shares could hit $2 if the economy gets as bad as it should. Nothing has changed and yet we have trillions more in debt to show for...well, nothing. While I'm still very bullish on Nat gas as our next go-to fossil fuel, it's going to take Herculean effort for it to supplant oil--just as it did for oil to supplant coal. Being the U.S. gov-Enron-ment is in such dysfunctional mess, it'll take even longer in my opinion.

    BFG reiterates SELL rating on WPRT. Target $10

    Reiterate Sell/Avoid rating on WPRT shares. Seems the more revenue it makes the more losses it incurs. Dreamers can talk positive adjusted EBITDA all he wants...just show them the money. Bagholders have seen enough lip movement out of the CEO and board. This is why you short hype, period. The Dotcom days etched a valuable lesson into history....

    BFG strikes again. Yes, today is the first day spot the target. I can't begin to describe how exciting this is. Not once, not twice, not three times but four times I've beat Kevin Douglas on the opposite side (short). Where the guy gets all this money from is as far beyond me as how the guy isn't bankrupt. These are huge positions--all massive losses this guy is sustaining. Only one other guy I've bet against has lost this much money and that was Paul Allen (with his disastrous Charter Communications)--at least I knew where he got his money from.

    As for the mindlessly pumping huckster on all these Yahoo boards, they'll never admit they're wrong, and they'll always attempt to stultify those using logic and conviction until the finish line. But that's just it. I've never come on this board or any with something to sell. Frankly, I don't care what folks do; however the pumpers just keep hyping losing positions all the way down. Honestly, this is when you know you're on to something really BIG and right over the target. These people hyping this junk are sent to these boards to help perpetrate the pump-to-dump frauds, and I take great pleasure stuffing it down their throats. -BFG

    No fraud. Its manufacturing facilities (majority of staff) is in China and wages are much much lower. A $30k salary would be huge for the average Chinese worker. (This is why we don't make much in U.S. anymore--employers can't exploit cheap, local labor anymore...but communists can. This is why there's such a push for immigration/amnesty...huge desire to exploit cheap local labor again right here in the US.)

    Chang is a pompous guy but he's run operations well. The stock has been nothing but a terrible laggard long-term. It's got growth but lacks horsepower. Dilution, low stock price (almost delisted once), fickle earnings whims...it's a poor investment long-term, however I've never had reason to question Chang's ethics or books. Really with AFLOP, you have to separate the company from the stock. Company run well but terrible stock to own for too many reasons. Sure it pumps but it also dumps and buries suckers. In fact, it's the perfect stock to lose money on because it "looks too good not to be true."

    They pay them with incentive stock while diluting the snot out of bagholders. Since the IPO the stock has been diluted over 50% and this includes over 1mm shares repurchased! So baggies are now left with highly-diluted small ca-rap stock that over 50% below IPO price. The writing is on the wall: avoid this POS stock or short it.

  • bigfatty_guns bigfatty_guns Sep 19, 2014 5:49 PM Flag

    Why did Kevin Douglas continue buying AMSC from $40 on down to $3 while I continued shorting from $43 to $1 (my former price target...now I value the equity at $0)? Some people with a lot of money do brilliant things while others are simply fools making me even wealthier. Btw, he did the same thing buying my shares short with WPRT from $40 on down. The posts are all there and on AMSC as well. Bear-bashing jumpers like you love talking trash as much as you love losing money. Take from a guy that's been plundering fools like you on Yahoo's board for well over a decade. Just like I've told Kevin Douglas, the board jumpers on AFOP, FNSR, etc.--countless others, you'll lose. Bank on it. I'm here a decade+ for a reason. :)

    I said I will cover at $8 and consider long thereafter. I think you'll find CLFD as low #$%$ 70,000 square ft facility? That's not even a storage shed for a real-sized company. The lipstick on this pig is coming off just like AFOP which got slaughtered for -4% today. We shorts own the prices of all these over-hyped, over-pumped fiber stocks. It reminds me of all the cable TV (MOSs) stocks pumped before the infamous triple play hype. We watched them all collapse into that hype just like Dotcom days. lol These fiber stocks aren't going anywhere anytime soon. And don't forget, I was the one saying buy CLFD at $17 and sell at $22. Now's not time to be long. Yep, I said it. Short and prosperous...

  • bigfatty_guns bigfatty_guns Sep 19, 2014 5:20 PM Flag

    Looks like it exploded in your face, ace. How's losing 4% working for ya? That's losing over 10x what the Nasdaq lost today. Good stocks don't behave like this junk. AFOP is junk. Short it anywhere and buy DEC puts. You pumped keep crowing the same nonsense and keep on losing more money. I'm surprised any of you post anymore drubbing after drubbing. No one cares about AFOP stock which is why it's sinking faster with a pe of 11 than CLFD with a 25 pe. And this is with AFOP is outperforming fundamentally every fiber stock out there. I told you this POS would do exactly this and here it is. Junk. Short it and start making money vs. losing even more. Anyone pumping this junk is losing money and desperate. Me? I could care less if you follow my lead. I got nothing to sell anyone. In fact, I don't care what AFOP does because at this point it'd have to hit $41 for me to start losing money short. Bwahahaha!

    Looking at broader markets, chart, etc., I don't think CLFD down to $5 is out of the question. While I have a target at $8, I'd recommend covering there and hold on acquiring shares until we find out just how bad the Fed bubble-to-nowhere busts. Markets could effectively crash to levels rivaling the 1929 Crash in terms of percentages. None of the US structural problems are fixed--simply they were glossed over and wrapped in trillions of more debt to nowhere. The US is dead broke and in worse shape and it's yet to pay the fiddler a penny. I wouldn't be long anything, period. Cheap will only get CHEAPER.

  • bigfatty_guns bigfatty_guns Sep 19, 2014 1:21 PM Flag

    So you deny the charts look like pre-dotcom crash or the other FACT insiders have been DUMPING massive amounts of their shares? FNSR, AFOP, CLFD, CIEN, etc....they've ALL been dumping massive shares for last 2 years. Oh, yeah, the charts must be just coincidental, too. Bwhahahahahahahaha!!!

  • Gee, seeing AFOP still has 27% rev growth and even more growth in (non-GAAP, due to special tax item) earnings, I'd bet CLFD is heading to $8. AFOP's results are going to have to sour more to drop from here, but CLFD is WAY over-valued with its terrible results as of late.

    Yeah, just waste your money holding this junk. $8 coming. Bank on it. I am. In fact, I'll probably be covering and buying in $7s. I'm always early you know.

  • Nas down .36% and AFLOP down 3.6%! Bwhahahahaha!!

    Shorts own the price. There are no real investors behind this company. They're opportunists. They pump and dump the stock and insiders unload the first chance they get. Planned sales my behind. Ironically insiders dumped millions of shares above $20 and yet last conference call Chang says, "What selling? No sales in last two months, right?" Bwhahhahahaa!! Duh! because insiders dumped over 50% of positions already. And yet suddenly (CFO sold-out all shares, EVP Sales 75% sold-out, Chang over 50% sold) all the "planned" sales have stopped?? lol Why? They'll load up on cheap option grants that continue to dilute the carp out of long-term bagholders. In fact, they've already re-issued all the stock they bought-back from the one and only buy-back. That's right! The dilution continues unabated.

    Some times I wonder if the stock isn't hammered to such low levels so that someone can steal it for dirt cheap. I mean with results like AFOP's the stock should have soared to 40+ p/e levels and yet the best it got was 17. Pathetic. Sure the short-selling market makers provide liquidity for buyers to help pump the stock, but it never goes very high and NEVER for long. So just short it anywhere and you make money within days. Then the hammering of the price continues to unrealistic levels (not even I understand how a stock can trade for $.63/sh when it has $1/sh in cash!).

    So either this company is going to be acquired very cheaply by Hon Hai, Foxconn, Hua Wei, etc. or it's going to falter and the price will catch up to its demise (we already saw AFLOP flounder with ARS so we know it's capable of poor decisions). With shorts owning the price and not going away, my guess is reality is coming and the lower and lower price will make sense to everyone but the BAGGIES losing even more money. Single digits? I bet it's possible, if not probable at this point.

    AFLOP is the #1 most hated small cap

    by bigfatty_guns Sep 14, 2014 6:26 PM
    bigfatty_guns bigfatty_guns Sep 19, 2014 12:54 PM Flag

    Smart investors pumped and dumped the stock. They're gone. So either you can't read or you're in denial, or can't understand.

    Firstly, I didn't say hated company. I said, "...most hated small cap [as in stock]." The fact is the stock has collapsed twice now--over 20% both times post-earnings. Anyone buying this garbage on momentum has been slaughtered if not once, twice. Furthermore insiders dumped millions of dollars in shares--massive percentages of their holdings--over the last two years.
    CFO holds no shares now; they dumped heavily into every pump above $20. That's all this stock does: big investors accumulate it, pump and dump. Rinse and repeat. Then the POS gets hammered down to a paltry, pathetically-low p/e and rots otherwise. So outside the pumps to dump, the stock is a DOG infested with fleas.

    So, detmarlowe, you're the only person that doesn't see the stock is over 50% diluted and less than half the IPO price some 13-years post-IPO. And if this weren't enough, it's had stellar results during the biggest Fed-fueled bubble in history and yet it hit a high p/e of maybe 17 for a day or two--before collapsing 40%! Now p/e is 11...still with 27% growth in revs! So, yeah, go ahead and try to put lipstick on this DOG with fleas because you're the only one kissing it...nevermind you're trying to kiss the wrong end! lol

    But really whatever makes you feel good, you just go ahead and pump-post to this board. Everyone else sees reality and doesn't ignore the fact this POS traded for $.63/sh when it had over $1/share in cash. If you didn't learn anything then, I doubt anything practical will matter to you viewing AFOP through rose-colored glasses. The stock is done. The company will probably continue ok but the stock will remain a DOG with FLEAS. All the meaningful support is gone including insiders dumping millions. They knew what was coming probably as much as I warned. My guess is markets likely will tank and AFLOP will lead it all lower.

  • I've watched it for years. It's why you don't hold it long...at least not for long...REGARDLESS what fundamentals or outlook look or sound like. In fact, this POS once traded for $.63/share when it had over $1/share in cash along (and no debt). It's not only dislike, it's hated. Go figure all you want, it's just the fact. Over 12 years later since the IPO and the stock is still 50% below the IPO price and over 50% diluted. It's been a terrible long-term investment betting on Chang et al. Not saying he doesn't run a good company either. What I'm saying is the stock is categorically a DOG with fleas. Even with great results in last 2-years and biggest Fed-fueled bubble ever witnessed yet this turd has a p/e almost in single digits. Yep, it's hated. Avoid it if the two separate one-day 20%+ drops didn't provide warning enough: shorts own AFLOP's price, period.

  • Yikes. Every one of these stocks appears to be in downtrend after massive pumps to dump. Results not so glossy now as comps caught up and valuations got ahead of themselves with all the pumps to dump. Sell/short/avoid is my rec. I'll let you know when it's time to buy anything. But now's the time to unleash the short dragons and be patient.
