"In order for Sinovel to really deliver on what its shareholders want, it's going to have to ship product outside China, and that road goes through American superconductor."
If Sinovel wants to expand, they have to settle. Question might be: do they want to do business outside China?
China is big, but Sinovel needs to follow its direct competitors and expand!
If this alledged law suit has been dismissed several times before, they will know who the author is. It's called an opinion, everybody is entitled to it.
If you don't believe the content, you should buy.
Let's take a look at it through another angle: How does a company repay it's loans? The company can issue stock, debt, convetibles etc...
But what if you look at it through the balance sheet and the fundamentals? You have to look at the EBITDA, the earnings before intrest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.
So if GT has to repay a loan of +/- 600M over the course of three years, they have to earn +200M in EBITDA between 2015 and the end of 2017 PER YEAR.
If you ask me, market cap will be a lot higher in 2015, and it will be justified!
plus: Sapphire may become a commodity in due time, but for now, GT will be market leader for years to come.
No he's not I'm affraid. I mentioned it because it was worth mentioning. Nothing more, nothing less. I didn't mention they lost Aapl. Heck, they just won Samsung! And again, and again, and again
I'm not short, I can't go short. (unless through put options).
As a statement I do think it can count. Perhaps it would have been better to say in the release: we have to divest one piece of the line, which we can't use at all.
With a conference call at 8 AM Eastern Time, the call will be finished before market open, everyone will be able to make up his or her mind and push the buy or the sell button.
Keep in mind that when they hit the buy button, the ones holding call options, might want to exercise. Almost 18K call options are in the money -equal to 1.8 M shares.
So perhaps GT might be down at the open, but when buying comes, it will be on heavy volume!
On the investor relations page you can find: "NOTICE TO CURRENT AMSC SHAREHOLDERS REGARDING PROPOSED SETTLEMENT OF DERIVATIVE ACTIONS".
Only the lawyers are benificiaries of this, but please, get it over with!
Who's buying? Someone closing a large short position? New Institutions?
Just a thought as a question: would it be allowed for Sinovel to gobble up a few million shares?
The possibility of a rat is out of the question, or the SEC will want to come and have a look at who did what and when... A rat would just have bought some calls imo.
In fact I'm unable to short (unless through the put options). In fact it is unable to short for more than a trading session.
Actually I'm long through the $12.5 options.
What I meant was, that PERI SP is being manipulated higher to increase the (so far unrealised) value of the conduit holders.
If you look at the chart, with all the gaps the last week or two, you can't say that there is no manipulation going on.
Today we are seeing volume (225K the first hour), so today might be a confirmation of a/the next trend: gradually up.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
. Concentration of Revenue
Due to the nature of the Product Line’s business, it is dependent on one key customer for a significant portion of its revenues. During the nine months ended August 3, 2013, one customer accounted for 99% of total Product Line sales. A cancellation of a significant order by this customer, the loss of this customer for any reason or the insolvency of this customer, or reduced sales of our principal product to this customer, could significantly reduce the Product Line’s ongoing revenue and/or profitability, and could materially and adversely affect the Product Line’s financial condition. To manage credit risk and exposure for this key customer, the Company performs continuing credit evaluations of this customers’ financial condition. During the nine-month period ended August 3, 2013, the Company was informed by this customer that the Product Line’s parts would not be included in the next generation of the customer’s product.
There's only one institutional player (Price T rowe) who has that number of shares, besides the insiders.
We might find out more this week.
