"Seven Alternative Energy and Clean-Tech Stocks With Massive Long-Term Upside Potential
By 24/7 Wall St.
Whether you call it renewable energy, alternative energy, clean tech or another name, powering up the planet by means other than fossil fuels is becoming big business. Even the oil giants all admit in their long-term forecasts that energy sources such as wind, solar, turbine, biofuel and the like will grow exponentially in the coming decades. 24/7 Wall St. has highlighted the prospects for several alternative energy and clean tech companies that may have been overlooked by investors, but that still potentially have exponential upside in the years ahead.
In order to qualify for this list, each company has to have a significant opportunity ahead that remains exponentially larger than the tapped opportunity to date. All of these companies are based in the United States, but almost all of them have an international presence and are not solely reliant on U.S. Department of Energy handouts.
Another issue to consider is that these are all small cap stocks. We used $500 million market cap as a guide, though some of the screened companies may have exceeded that mark marginally. None of the companies were over $1 billion in market cap, so they are generally not as well known as the largest solar players. Lastly, almost all of these companies now are generating direct revenues from existing operations.
We also only took one company from each subcategory within clean tech, renewable energy and alternative energy. These range from wind power and distributed power, cleaner coal, TURBINE systems, fuel cells, pollution control, ocean power, solar, biofuels and renewable chemicals."
That is exactly the way I see it also. It should all play out very well for all longs. We are at the cusp of a major event and the energy generation industry is colossal.

I noticed that the price fluctuates between 1.52 and 1.51 even though all the trades are sells. You would think if someone were watching the price would slowly trend down. Seems to be a controlled exit, perhaps a major hedge fund exiting short positions while another is going long. Doing both a favor. Strange.
They should be able to stumble, and bumble and still make record sales. Can't help double from here. Just guessing though, could be much more. LOL.
you have enough dead brain cells to qualify for the job, instead you chose to sit around wearing your aluminum foil antenna hat, chewing bubble gum, waiting for you next message from the fool that told you to short CPST in the first place. Good luck with all of that.
Kind of hard to buy the amount of shares needed in the open market quietly. Large accumulation would be recognized and also cause S/P increases. I have no problem with doubling, or tripling my value for a short term gain, but the longer it takes the more I would want.
That would be "Eminent Domain" immigrant domain for illegal immigrants is non existent and squatters rights only applies to US citizens illegal immigrants have no legal claim to property.
Fair value is any value of assets that assures profit for shareholders of a given company and in doing so ensures that short leaches get what they deserve also. That seems more than fair to me.
I'll wait for you to turn in your car keys first. I have nothing against the EPA except that they are their own worst enemy. I could give examples of other organizations that are the same way, but I don't want to needlessly offend anyone. They need to gardner a better working relationship with big business through compromise. Business is what drives our economy and nothing is ever going to change that fact, they need to learn to deal with it and learn how not to be obstructionist and rather become partners in progress in a clean America. I do believe in penalties for offenders and to make certain that they pay for any wrong doing. They just need to be more concerned with people rather than a spotted owl, for instance. How many species of birds have been hunted out of existence by spotted owls. Gee, give me a break.
it has to do with dilution in case of hostile take over attempts so that cannot happen, only negotiated sales at fair values will be allowed to happen.
You are right it is strange, and there is a reason that they let it go on. We need the oil, we need to develop the oil fields. The geopolitical changes, and uncertainty going on in the Middle East has put a lot demand for domestic oil. North Dakota is undeveloped and important and why they have left it alone, but that is now changing. Their is a greater urgency to build the pipelines for demand and to eliminate the flaring issues.
Oil and gas is the largest and fastest growing segment for them. I agree that chain stores and the like will be a large portion of their income, but as long as there is an existing grid to hook up too many would rather not now put the money up front. However, in remote areas where there is no electrical grid they have no choice but to go with a distributive power system and Capstone has very little competition in the micro turbine segment. Change in power distribution is about to happen, as these coal fired power plants are made to cease to exist because of pollution a transition will need to be made. I don't see too great a future with nuclear with all of its opponents. There will be a great opportunity for turbines however. I am certain there will be huge turbines built to replace the coal based units, but this will probably require an increase to consumers. This is when those chain stores, campuses, big business and etc will purchase micro turbines at a much greater rate. I am certain also the government will also give incentives for businesses to do so to help relieve the burden on the grid during this transition period. So, IMO Capstone right now should put most of its efforts in the oil and gas industry.
They should do what the Japanese use to do, change the name of a city to USA,Japan and then print made in USA on their products. But first you have to actually build something over there, and as far as I know they don't for Capstone.
You have to think about the situation in North Dakota. It, unlike Texas where they have been drilling oil for a hundred years and has a developed infrastructure, has not been developed enough to require but the occasional micro turbine here and there. Everything is shipped out by truck and train. Their infrastructure has to be built and that is where the opportunity for Capstone will skyrocket sales. Very little federal money involved currently in North Dakota. Once the oil and gas fields are developed, pipelines start flowing with oil, communities are built to support the workers that are needed to support that industry the demand for electricity will greatly increase. How will they meet that demand? Will they build an expensive coal fired power plant, or a nuclear power plant? Will they build expensive power grids in the middle of the wilderness?I don't think so, I am inclined to believe that they will build smaller, expandable power units that can operate independently of a grid system, but will also have the ability to supplement any future grids that may, or may not be built in the future as the area grows. That creates much more flexibility for the future. We are now at a time and place where the oil and gas reserves are a PROVEN resource, at a time of increased and immediate need for growth. This is now the time of great opportunity, and growth for Capstone and it will be far from business as usual.
Certainly could have used some of that stimulus money to build the infrastructure required to help pay for the new pipelines required to get the gas and oil out of North Dakota. Our government hasn't been involved in the oil and gas boom in North Dakota, just big oil, and some wildcatters drilling on privately held property so the EPA to date has little to say in the matter . I am sure that this administration will begin to take credit for it. So, it has been to date a Pay as you go kind of policy. Get the oil out of the ground and then build the infrastructure as you go forward. With all the flaring going on it has now drawn the ire of the EPA who never cares about being proactive in anything helpful to the economy and only complains when there is a problem. This flaring problem certainly could have been averted had the government and EPA come on board in the beginning but the EPA is only concerned with flaring they could care less about any problems, including those in the Middle East, that has anything to do with the procurement of oil. They care more about spotted owls and the like over the welfare of our economy and our citizens. In other words, they could care less about answers to problems and only the problem they see through the narrow blinders through which they look. The heck with the big picture.
Hey buddy, I always provide quotes which I then comment on so it does relate to Capstone. I think you just don't appreciate those with a positive opinion, plain and simple as that. Most of the Bashers give make a one line or two comment usually on the same theme and rarely if ever negative on the quality and reliability of the product. Always management, and sales and completely ignore the ever growing new trend of the concept of distributed power, the country's and the worlds ever increasing demand for using Natural Gas. In the past it would have been much more difficult to make sales if this new demand were not present. Now going forward, is the time to question management's ability in an environment of acceptability and need for Capstones product. Capstone is sitting at the apex of a major change in US policy. That they have been able to maintain until this time is remarkable. Patience will soon be rewarded, and it will not be business as usual as many here would lead to believe.
$876 billion asset the national electrical grid . Just for a perspective think how large the electrical grid is. You can't go anywhere and not see part of it from telephone poles in your neighborhood to Ariel power transmission lines, power lines buried in streets, for subway systems, and the list is endless. It is ubiquitous. Now consider just how much money a trillion dollars must be. How did we ever spend that much money in Iraq? You cannot tell me there was not monumental graft. Very sad because we all foot the bill.
100,000 hour location the maintenance man could just change a total of 20 air filters and be eligelible for retirement . Nice job if you can find it. Hehehe.
