Major cities in China have already converted about 90% of public transport (buses & taxis) to natgas, so it's hard to guess what commitment might go for electric vehicles.
OK bucket... my statement about samsung technology was just as you said, a "blanket statement", because samsung dominates IT in almost every respect, on blanket, global level. New technology is usually introduced by samsung, then imitated by all the rest. If you take apart an iPhone, for instance, what you will find is samsung semiconductors driving a samsung screen... In fact, samsung tops the global short list for R&D spending, every year ~ last year, samsung spent $10.5B on R&D alone (that's roughly 1000x the enterprise value of Highpower). So, don't expect samsung to look for a 3rd party supplier of batteries. just being realistic here.
Tesla signed an agreement today with China United Network Communications Corp. to build 400 charging points in 120 Chinese cities at China Unicom (762) outlets, Tesla spokeswoman Peggy Yang said today in a phone interview. The two companies will also build 20 supercharging stations that work as much as 16 times faster, she said.
doowop59 ~ When did you place your first short bet? Because, if you look at the 1-year chart for HPJ, it's been a slow and steady uptick - punctuated by periods of consolidation - the whole time. In that 52-week period, i guess you've never really had a chance to cover your losses.
Samsung technology is a few years ahead of any other on the planet. I doubt they need anybody to design a battery for them.
if there is a correction, S&P 1960 (50-day MA) is a buyers dream. Not much to worry about here ~ GDP at 4.2%.
ooooh dilution. now i'm scared. my VIX index just went thru the roof! You, know, if you had bought yesterday, that wouldn't be much of a concern today... maybe you should wait till tomorrow to cover.
It's too bad they don't actually crank out any fluff... solid orders from companies like Timex, earnings beats, but no fluff. Next major product order will prolly be for electric vehicles. still 39% short day traders here, and they're going to fight for their orses.
i'd like to think you're that dumb, because the alternative would be that you're underhanded and mendacious.
well, you didn't expect this (or any stock) to go straight up did you. That would be incredibly foolish. The lowest price today is +12% from yesterday, and yesterday it was already up a lot. gaps fill, and a new, higher baseline is formed. It's how the market works, or didn't you already know that?
it doesn't matter what you believe. It's very rare to find a nanocap with real fundamental growth potential, and this is it. It doesn't matter if volatility today leaves some newcomers in the red EOD, either, because the most likely scenario for this position is to double int near term, as long as macreconomic factors conspire to leave us with a strong market.
This stock was already rallying slow & steady on fundamentals... the headline is just icing on a sweet cake. Yesterday, P/E was only 40 on a nanocap with high growth potential. EPS last earnings was 13c... the underlying fundamentals are the real engine here.
forget apple ~ quicker these days if they supply batteries for police wearable cameras ;)
new baseline in the sixes. If the S&P holds 2000 and the VIX sticks under 15, we might be ready for a short squeeze, forming a base at $7 or higher. Either way, it's all good.
