Is there any data out that could inform a potential leassor of a residential solar system whether the installed system is a plus or minus to the market price of the house? I would think that the house would have fewer potential buyers and thus negatively affect price.
It's fascinating to read about the glitches that have to be worked out, and yet the vehicle gets very, very high customer satisfaction ratings. Wish I could have grasped this fascination earlier, and I would have bought the stock based on that rather than looking at the financials.
I doubted xin would go private but the chin announcement changes things. If they do, $6 bucks is the best we get, and could be as low as current price. Lawsuit would benefit the law firm only. I make money at current price and am going to hold on.
You make a valid point about small cap Chinese firms being cut off from US capital, but realistically, they are already at that point and have nothing to lose by these going private transactions which amount to theft of US investor money. I suspect the pace of going private transactions will increase, and the amounts "offered" to US investors will not get better.
I shorted from at $36 and have watched in amazement as it kept going higher and higher. Still don't understand how a company can get this big and generate $5 billion of revenue per year and never make a dime. If they had a monopoly business it might make sense, but crm has major league companies competing against them.
Agree with your comment on STV. I've owned it for over 5 years and am amazed how well it turned out. Apparently the company raised more money than they needed and they are returning it to shareholders. Don't recall what the IPO price was but my guess is that thOSE who bought then did not do well.
I think you are partially right, that is that the company is largely unknown, but the other part is lack of trust. That applies specifically to CXDX and generally to small cap Chinese companies. The trust issue is not going away any time soon. I think there is some safety in dividend paying small caps and I'm going to concentrate on them for future purchases.
This is not a "repudiation" of GAAP, instead it provides an alternative to the standard valuation method using gaap based earnings. No doubt that valuing fast growing companies can differ from mature companies, however shorts are convinced that Benioff is playing fast and loose with his accounting treatment of stock options. Time will tell who is right, shorts or longs, but certainly the long side is winning now. Start with gaap and go from there. Without gaap we have chaos in corporate accounting.
lucky, agree with you. Would think a simple LOC backed by assets would provide a safe level of cash available without incurring very high interest charges. Given that CXDX is a Chinese company, I'm not surprised by the rate, but I don't see a need beyond an LOC. Maybe Chinese banks don't operate that way.
What a dilemma for current shareholders. We know the CEO is dishonest. We know his family members get favorable treatment. We know he tried to make a windfall profit for his family using company (shareholder) funds. That tells us us to sell for whatever we can get. However, there is much larger value in the firm to an outside investor who could gain control of the assets. So do we take what we can get or do we hope for an outside buyout at fair value ($7.00 +), or even a going private buyout at 30 percent (say $3.00)? I'm waiting.
Tell us the truth. Do you make money trading on your "candlestick patterns", and if yes, how do you explain your ability to beat the big wall street firms who have billions of dollars, inside information, and computer programs that are 100 X faster than yours??
You chart readers are a mystery to me. Do you really see all that in a chartP? Key question: Be honest with us. Are you making money trading by reading charts?
