    NGV Today LNG outlook

    kaiser, people seem to forget the bottom line. CLNE is closer and closer to unsubsidized profits with each quarter, and this year there has been an acceleration of gallons accumulated under contract. If they do 25% increase as they say, and just part of the IMW contracts come to fruition, profitable, easy.

    I missed it! Can you post some highlights? Whatever the case, I believe this is a good place to cover shorts. 10.34

    Is this a done deal? Has the 4.5 billion been committed already? bought shares at 17.50 after selling at 18-something

    new station nears completion

    NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (Aug. 6, 2013) – Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (Nasdaq: CLNE) and NG Advantage LLC, today announced an agreement to construct a new compressed natural gas (CNG) compression facility in Central New Hampshire. The facility will allow NG Advantage to expand its reach in providing CNG to manufacturing and other energy-intensive customers located away from the nation’s natural gas pipeline throughout New England and Eastern New York. Once operational, the facility will more than double the capacity of NG Advantage and provide redundancy for the company’s existing customers.

    Designed, constructed and operated by Clean Energy, the facility is intended to provide a minimum of 10-million gasoline-gallons-equivalent of CNG per year. NG Advantage has committed to purchase that volume of fuel for the duration of the 10-year agreement. This potentially represents more than double the CNG fuel volume supplied by Clean Energy’s highest-volume CNG station.

    No airstrikes, no boots on ground, no Iranian solution, no ousting of Malaki. Oil prices going up.

    Pardon my ignorance. Where did you get the NG Advantage info?

    This may explain the lack of volume. Shorts not playing the up and down rollercoaster game, just trying to quietly cover. I don't care if shorts make or lose money, just hope for longs to make money.

    Oil historically tends to go high and stick for a while even as supplies expand. And supplies look to be contracting.

    shorts look

    sold most shares at 10.70 and above.... and bought some back at 10.60. If they are going to drive the price down, I ain't going down with the ship, but will buy back when I feel it's ready.

  • chrisceeaustin by chrisceeaustin Jun 10, 2014 3:40 PM Flag

    Just curious. And is anyone going in big right now? Seems like no one is doing anything.

    But there are 11.5 million shares short. At today's rate, if half the shares trading were shorts covering, it would take a number of months for all the shorts to cover. What does this mean? maybe there will be five million shares covered if they report a bad report and they can cover in the 14s, maybe? But what if good news happens?

    And when does the volume return? Yesterday the stock rallied on low volume. That could be a good sign for shorts -- that the volume was low. Or it could mean bad news for shorts, that it only took a small volume to drive the stock up.

    I think there is a 20% chance that the stock will go back to the 14.80s over the next week, and I think shorts will try to cover there. Others will hope for 14.00, and I think there is a 5% chance of that.

    There have been too many new product launches, meaning new sudden increase in sales. From zero to hundreds(?) for each product, I would assume? At least hundreds, yes? Per quarter, I mean.

    30-50% of new shipments was to be the US

    by twoheadedsnake1234 Jun 8, 2014 10:00 AM
    chrisceeaustin chrisceeaustin Jun 8, 2014 5:47 PM Flag

    Look, understand when you are reading the post of someone shorting the stock. JKS shipped very little to US in 2013. So, when in 2014, they are shipping in the 100s of MW (goal), then that's a great increase and takes up a major portion of the "new" (additional) shipments. So, snake's wording may be accurate.

    Their gross margin was not as good as one would suspect for their US shipments because they had to have cells produced in Taiwan at a premium and then make the modules in China and then ship the panels to the US, across the Pacific.

    The ASP for China was low, but so were the costs. Far lower. The gross margin was likely highest for places like Japan, Europe, Australia, Thailand, and Chinese projects built or designed by JKS. Hence their concentration on this.

    The ASP for unsubsidized parts was higher than in China! So there is much money to be made in what is known as rest of world.
