    Not that bad

    The important thing is that Capstone's new orders are increasing, driven by the declining prices of oil and natural gas. As a result, Capstone should see an increase in demand for its microturbines as they help lower production costs.

    Now, as oil and gas companies are looking to reduce costs, Capstone's order book is increasing. In fact, its "pipeline continues to be robust and is in excess of $1.4 billion globally." Hence, Capstone has built up a strong order book for itself that will allow it to report growth going forward. In addition, the company is well-positioned in the oil and gas markets, especially in North America. This could prove to be a growth driver.

    In fact, last quarter, around 57% of its shipments were used in natural resource applications including oil and gas. Half of its revenue came from North America itself, and this bodes well for the company as oil production is rising in the U.S. According to a recent Reuters report:

    "The United States is "producing an additional 3 million barrels per day because of shale oil", he said on Monday on the sidelines of Singapore International Energy Week.

    U.S. crude oil imports have fallen to 7.0 million-7.6 million bpd from peaks above 10 million bpd in 2005 and 2006 since the advent of the shale oil and gas boom, according to data posted on the website of the U.S. Energy Information Administration."

    Summary

    *Capstone Turbine has struggled this year but there are various factors that could help it make a comeback going forward.
    *Increasing oil production and cost reducing moves by oil and gas companies in North America are tailwinds for Capstone.
    *Capstone's order book is improving at an impressive rate, and the company has a strong pipeline that could improve long-term performance.

    Capstone Turbine: Will Announce First Quarterly Profit Ever?
    Oct. 6, 2014 7:45 AM ET

    Growing Backlog and Margin Improvement.
    Strong Order Flow Including Russia.
    Energy Sector Bottoming Setting Up A Bounce Opportunity.
    Capstone Turbine(CPST) continues to remain a strong candidate for above average returns for investors. It closed Friday, October 3, 2014 at $1.03, but made a higher low following a 52 week low the previous day. The chart set up is very similar to the set up I noted for my last Capstone article. Capstone has had steady order flow, but there seems to be a current sentiment that investors need to see orders shipped, not just flow to make further investments in the company. The growing backlog seems to be part of the misunderstanding. The correlation some are making is that since backlog is increasing that orders are not shipping. This is simply incorrect and the wrong argument to make against this stock. A simple look at the companies Annual Report, latest 10-K, or 10-Q will show this is very short sighted. For FY14 Capstone shipped 110 megawatts or 671 units compared to 628 units or 103 megawatts for the year prior.

    In my opinion, it is easier to look at megawatts over units because of the variability in unit costs for the different models. One megawatt equates to roughly 1 million dollars in revenue generation. The stock has also been attacked by known shorts, especially during the announcement of Russian sanctions. The company has said repeatedly that current sanctions do not materially affect its business with Russia at this time. In fact, the Sochi Olympic complex was recently announced as part of a 5.5 megawatt deal. The backlog is a substantial benefit for investors, currently standing at 188 megawatts, 820 units, or $175 million dollars in deferred revenue. There is additional backlog of 55 million dollars for its service contracts that can last for nine years. Service revenue accounts for approximately 7% of total revenue gener

    Capstone Turbine Management continues to do Better & Better, YEAR AFTER YEAR - Consistently. They've got my vote....!!!

    When Darren Jamison took over, Capstone had :

    - 17 mil in sales
    - A poor sales distribution network.
    - A limited product line
    - No focus on emerging markets.
    - No ability to purchase parts in quantity to improve margins.
    - losses that make today's losses look like chump change.

    DJ has turned Capstone into a global powerhouse in spite of the worst economy of my lifetime. In short, Capstone was in reverse. The previous management had no clue how to turn it around and most of the damage to the company occurred at that time . In order to restart Capstone (from scratch) DJ had to raise more money and now has a solid footing. DJ has stated , (if I recall correctly) that he was not concerned with the share price as his driving goal. His sole aim is to reach profitability and damn the torpedoes.

    FedEx runs such a massive operation—it uses more than 47,000 vehicles and nearly 700 aircraft to deliver about 4 million packages every day—that any systemic change it makes to cut down its carbon footprint can have major consequences. That’s why news that it’s using technology developed by a founder of Tesla Motors to make its trucks way more fuel efficient is so exciting, both for its investors and those who want the planet to breathe easy.

    DECEMBER 1, 2014

    On Sunday, Germany’s biggest utility E.ON announced plans to split into two companies and focus on renewables in a major shift that could be an indicator of broader changes to come across the utility sector. E.ON will spin off its nuclear, oil, coal, and gas operations in an effort to confront a drastically altered energy market, especially under the pressure of Germany’s Energiewende — the country’s move away from nuclear to renewables.

    E.ON will also focus on smart grids and distributed generation in an effort to improve energy efficiency and increase customer engagement and opportunity.

    The new, yet-to-be-named natural gas-focused company will work to bolster overall energy security for the region, using its power and gas foothold to help ensure supply security in the United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Russia, and other countries.

    November 24, 2014
    Sabic, Saudi Arabia’s largest chemicals company, has been given the go-ahead by United States authorities to export liquefied natural gas from the US to the UK as part of its worldwide expansion.

    Mohamed Al Mady, Sabic’s chief executive, also said the company was planning to announce an investment in US shale gas shortly. “Shale gas is very important for us. Hopefully we will announce something in the near future about investment in US,” he said on the sidelines of the GPCA Forum in Dubai, an annual petrochemicals industry gathering.

    Sabic has won approvals in Britain and some government funding to convert a 90-hectare Olefins cracker in Wiltshire, southern England, to be able to handle US shale gas.

    Mr Al Mady said plans were on track and the conversion is set to begin next year and be completed the year after.
    The move is part of a broader restructuring of Sabic’s European businesses, which have been suffering from weak demand and squeezed margins. Sabic also has recently expanded into China.

  • Capstone Turbine Named a Deloitte 2014 Technology Fast 500 Winner as One of North America's Fastest Growing Companies
    CHATSWORTH, Calif., Nov. 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Capstone Turbine Corporation Nasdaq:CPST), the world's leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, today announced the company's inclusion on Deloitte's Technology Fast 500™, a ranking of the 500 fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies in North America.
    Capstone made the Deloitte Technology Fast 500™ list again this year, coming in with an impressive 190% fiscal year revenue growth from 2009 to 2013.
    Capstone's President and Chief Executive Officer, Darren Jamison, credits the U.S. shale gas boom, emergent flare gas market and general trend of businesses worldwide becoming more determined on reducing energy costs with fueling the company's impressive 190% revenue growth from 2009 to 2013. "Capstone is honored to be one of the fourteen clean tech companies to make this year's list. This is the fourth consecutive year Capstone has been a Technology Fast 500 winner, and overall it's our ninth Technology Fast 500 award since 2001," said Jamison.
    "We're excited for this list every year because it's such a great microcosm of the technology landscape in general," said Eric Openshaw, vice chairman, Deloitte LLP and U.S. technology leader for Deloitte's technology, media and entertainment and telecommunications industry practice in the Americas. "Some sectors – like software and Internet – have shown consistent growth over recent years. On the other hand, there are always a few surprises – previously under-represented sectors like clean technology have made considerable progress, while biotechnology continues to make up a large part of the list, which is in line with how strong this industry has been over the last year. Congratulations to all on the list on their continued excellence."
