Why so many thumbs down to these posts by frustrated shareholders? If any one is giving thumbs down to peoples comments on how pathetic this company is run, simply means they must approve it.
Well said trumpace. They've all gotten way to comfortable, doing the same ole quarter after quarter, collecting their compensations, and doing nothing for share holders. A change is needed.
9 board members are due to renew their spots on the board. I'm voting them all out. In their place, I'm putting on the ballot myself and 8 guys who live down the road from me. I really don't think we can do any worse these bozos. DJ pulls in a good 1.5 mil a year on total compensation. I think we could clear a profit and NOT have to reach out for secondary's if he would just take a pay cut. The average board member is like 65. Nothing against elderly people, but they can go to the house and start collecting their social security. It's time for some younger, new ideas to come into this company. Wake up!!
You know things are bad when Reuters cites a Seeking Alpha article...that's old news in and of itself. I'm getting a little worried. Things have been too quiet lately. I'm afraid we'll get a big slap in the face come next quarterlies.
strong PR? I'd be happy with ANY PR. The company has been really quiet as of late. Meanwhile, the American solars are printing stories left and right. I would have expected a PR or two about making a decent sale into the residential market, seeing how SOL plans to move into that part of the woods. But nothing. Dismal I tell ya.
I agree with you and the previous posters. This hidden inflation came about just as the great recession was coming to an end. I saw it as an attempt for companies to start recovering lost profits. Probably every food item has been affected in one way or another. There are far less Oreos and Ritz Crackers in the packs as there were before. I'm guessing those who compile the CPI don't pay attention to this, yet their beaching about it on their way out the door at walmart.
So much PR coming from other solars. Nothing from SOL. Not even sure if they're still opened for business or not. Maybe they've shut in all of their factories...of course they wouldn't tell the public that until their next quarterly report. I really thought the US tariffs would have sparked some new orders, more than just that one.
Thanks. Today is another good example. Silver was down nearly 30 cents overnight and has rallied all the way back to recoup those loses. I like what I'm seeing. Keeping both feet planted, as I've finally reached break-even on my holding. It's been a long time since I've seen this kind of strength. It's almost like money is silently moving over as the markets seem to be hitting a glass ceiling (i.e. DOW 17000).
For months, silver would trade higher in Asian trade and trade lower in US trade. Over the past couple of weeks, it seems the reverse has happened. For several US trading days now, silver has overcome Asian losses and ended up in the green. Very interesting; definitely shows some strength in the metal.
Another down day when ALL other solars were up. This is sad.... I know..shouldn't quote it every day...every hour...every 30 mins. Just looking for something to hang my hat on while I still have my head in this game. I'll be ticked that once SOL starts pumping on all cylinders, that the market tops off and we enter a correction...taking SOL with it. SOL is the Rodney Dangerfield of solars!
I really hope so. I'm so tired of being the only solar stock that's in the red. Right now, most solars are green or close to it. Dang SOL is in the red. So frustrating. Missed out on the last 2000 points in the DOW, sitting here, waiting for the paint to dry.
The "fuel cell" sector is on the rise today...FCEL...PLUG. CPST usually follows suit, even though it is not involved in "fuel cells". Solar is also on the rise today. There are days in which the entire green sector rises; days when the entire sector drops together. I just re-added 10% more to my CPST holding. Looks the stock is steady now. Some nice articles about it lately. Quarterlies are due early next month. This should be a non-determining factor since most of the cat is out of bag...except actually earnings...ug...losses that is.
Found this article on the CSUN news..http://mobile.bloomberg.com/news/2014-05-21/china-solar-makers-seek-talks-to-resolve-trade-dispute-with-u-s-.html?cmpid=yhoo
YGE mentions the workaround to US trade disputes over solar dumping. But SOL implemented their work around as soon as the investigation landed in their lap months ago by selling to the US via OEM. TSL just reported a great quarter selling to the US as well. Guys I think SOL is going to print some very good numbers next week.
Several things are wrong here. California and fracking should never be used in the same sentence...unless you add in additional risk for seismic activity. Add to that using CA`s precious water supply to frack out the oil. This is just all wrong. The US really needs to step up its efforts to be greener.
The market has had it all wrong, all along. I thought YGE was reporting today? I expect YGE to take the breath out of any solar rebound. YGE can't seem to get their aces in gear. There's always an issue...from margins...to secondaries...to progressing in projects.
SOL shares are still VERY cheap in this range. The TSL report should give prospective SOL buyers a solid reason as to why they should be jumping in today. I added more at 2.29 yesterday (had to give up my dang happy meal lunch allowance to do it though). I'm sorry, but $2.49 is just crazy cheap. SOL's market cap is crazy low. This stock should have never fallen below $5. We should have been on our way to $10 by now.
Look at MFA. As long as the bond market doesn't crash like it did last summer, this stock will pay you a nice 11% dividend. I had to ditch mine to reduce margin debt and to support my cocaine need....to buy SOL that is!
You beat me to the post on this article! Yea, I really don't know what the heck is going on here. There is absolutely no respect. YGE and TSL reports numbers this week. CSIQ was recently creamed with their quarterlies. There are very, VERY few sectors out there that are reporting such substantial growth. I don't understand why the sector isn't priced with higher growth multiples. I have an order for more at 2.19. Weak market today may get us there.
