It also doesn't help if you have a bad product. I read on Tech and Innovation Daily that "The average solar cell only converts about 17% of sunlight into electrical energy. " If this is true, its terrible. I'm a fan of solar, but this industry needs to get it together!
"the hottest IPOs might enjoy an initial rally, but share prices ultimately head significantly lower to reflect the true market value. On average, overhyped IPOs are down by double digits within six months." - Wall Street Daily... This was over a year ago and certainly still applies. But the other day..." Zipcar was a terrible IPO. Shares steadily fell to the $8 to $12 range, where they remained until the buyout announcement on January 2." -Tech and Innovation
Just saying folks.
What is the world coming to... Has anyone else heard of this before? I find it absolutely ridiculous. Saw a video on Wall Street Daily's website with this and am really not sure what to think- had to share.
A little off topic here- but amateur investors just assume that the only way to make money is through stocks. Did anyone think of dividends for Phillip Morris? Might I suggest a little research before "assuming" and start with one I know of called Dividends and Income Daily. I find them spot on (most of the time).
Agreed! It's certainly worth at least $8 and I'm watching and laughing at those who got in at $38. Here's a thought "If Facebook traded in line with Google, its shares would be worth about $8.50. That’s a whopping 50%-plus disconnect with Facebook’s current share price." http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/08/23/12-reasons-to-keep-ignoring-facebook-2/
You guys need to start focusing on the dividends for this company. http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/08/14/dividend-stocks-good-defense-is-still-a-great-offense/ Get your head in the game folks!
After some research on what in the world this stock was, found this article, thought it was interesting and pretty helpful, wanted to share with those who are interested. http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/08/10/first-solar-earnings/
I was just reading the article you're quoting from! http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/08/02/the-little-known-secret-to-profitably-trading-ipos/ To anyone else who agrees with bass_pal and the author, I've attached the link if you wanted to get more details. Cheers!
I had no idea what this company but if it's kicking some butt I wanted to learn more about it, for anyone else in my situation here's an easy read:
Hopefully this will start going back up!
One can argue that simple "updates" are not necessarily "innovations" since it's not really a new product but simply and enhancement. You have to admit things have been very different without Jobs. I agree with this article that for right now,the iPhone 5 is the next best thing but I could care less about an iPad mini.
I'm torn on which to believe. As of now it seems to risky and I appreciate all the different analysts takes like one I saw on Seeking Alpha via Wall Street Daily vs. Bloomberg. Have hope in the new iPhone? What do you guys think?
If that's how you feel about The Carlyle Group, I'm very curious to get your take on this article and the statement "Carlyle is the best in private equity" (http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/07/12/carlyle-group-cg-be-wary-of-public-investments-in-private-equity/ ) anyone else seeing it please feel free to respond! I had never heard of them before so i would love more enlightenment.
Not sure if your question was rhetorical, but here's an interesting article covering the patents (and the numbers of which you already mentioned) and breaks down a few other competitive patents. http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/06/20/truth-about-intels-latest-patent-grab/
Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!
This article might help shed some light on the discussion about where Japan is going with solar power changes...http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/06/20/panasonic-and-kyocera-among-the-companies-poised-to-profit-from-japans-solar-boom/
Watch the hype everyone! Or so says this article I found.
"Once natural gas demand exceeds the available supply, which should start happening in the next five years, expect prices to soar. But until then, be sure to take the latest hype with a grain of salt." http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/06/18/whats-behind-the-natural-gas-buzz/ You can take it how you want, I'm not celebrating yet.
Here's a great article if you guys are interested about the bullish view on small caps in Japan (http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/06/19/number-one-reason-still-bullish-on-japan/) “It’s a great time for bargain hunters.” Indeed!...So step up, be contrarian and buy Japanese small-cap stocks. And be patient."
The Coming Natural Gas Export Boom, heads up everyone! "Recent studies have shown that the impact on natural gas prices will be relatively muted so long as the export of the fuel is limited. So the compromise will likely be that the United States will permit the export of a limited amount of liquefied natural gas (LNG) – perhaps as much as 10% to 15% of its total production." http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/06/13/the-coming-natural-gas-export-boom/
"There was a lot of panic in the wake of the Fukushima meltdown, so you may be surprised to learn that the number of planned nuclear plants actually rose in the past year from 156 to 163.
In fact, globally, the number of nuclear reactors is still on track to swell from 434 today to 820 by 2030. And 96 reactors are set to come on-line by 2021." http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/06/11/nows-the-time-to-get-in-on-nuclear-power/
Is the worst really over?
If you're interested, here's a easy to understand explanation (also with a video) http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/06/11/will-gold-rally-forever/
Don't expect it to get much better! You might find this helpful if you agree wit this sentiment "Miserable. That’s the only way to describe the month of May for stocks." http://www.wallstreetdaily.com/2012/06/07/sell-in-may-did-they-ever/
