I agree, it should not at all be taken seriously but it is quite a coincidence that on the 14th, the stock had spiked and then it started falling on the 15th, the same day he came out with that dramatic headline. I think most people don't even read entire articles, just panicky headlines and I do think this company is thinly traded enough that it could be effected by something like that and once a stock like this starts falling on no news then the cascade starts. Personally I think that's what sometimes opportunities, of course given there's not some weirdo bad news.
The title of the article was: "LNG's Future As The Preferred Fuel For High-Mileage Heavy Duty Trucks Seems Doubtful". It was posted on Seeking Alpha by a guy going by the name of NGV Investor. I don't know if that started this run for the door but if so, it is completely unwarranted. All he said in the article was *he* believed that CNG (compressed natural gas) would make more sense than LNG (liquified natural gas) for very large trucks. 1st off, I don't even know who the hell this guy is but so what? It's just his opinion and WPRT and CLNE both support CNG and LNG so it wouldn't really matter which one ends up being chosen. I'm also sure that Westport and CLNE both know which makes more sense for very large trucks as opposed to some guy posting on the internet. I think also, because Westport is Canadian, most Americans treat it like it's operating on the far side of the moon or something and the volume is not that heavy. Anyways, if this was all started but one guy posting his opinion all I can say is we sure live in weird times...
I'm losing money and pooping
If you call me pooping my pants uncontrollably then I would say YES, something bad is DEFINITELY happening!
You know, jumping in with stupid comments about smog in China really has no bearing on what is happening with this stock. Endless smog in China is not going to make WPRT suddenly go up.
He's really screwed up bad on these stocks. ETRM has been TERRIBLE and WPRT and FSYS have gone absolutely nowhere for years on end. The only things that HAVE been going up are IMAX and STMP and he sold both of them WAY too soon. I wonder if he's actually Uncle Jeds nephew Jethro Bodine from The Beverly Hillbillies. "Hey, Uncle Jed, I'm gonna build me's an E-lectric auto-mobile! LOL!!
You're too funny dude. It falls like a rock from 17 to 13 and then just because it goes up like, 0.30 cents you say that "the shorts are getting banged up", oh yeah buddy, I bet they're really hurting after making at least a 30% gain in only a few days!
Who cares. Stop trying to pump it. Clearly this stock is a dog and has been for years on end.
The pumpers have been trying to make Kevin Douglas out to be some Guru that never loses but that's just not true. The guy is not a mind reader. Even Paulson lost Millions on Sino Forest and this is what has happened to Douglas -- AMSC is Douglas's Sino Forest trade. He believed in this piece of garbage and it's turned around to bite him in the #$%$ -- end of story. You can't win 'em all.
These idiots will pump this turrd right into the toilet. I have seen people do this EXACT thing before on these stupid Yahoo boards. I've seen people pumping stocks even AFTER they've said they're bankrupt and going out of business!! The LAST thing you see on these boards is you wake up one day, log in and the message board has been closed by Yahoo. That's what will happen to AMSC -- they will pump it right up to the last minuet before it goes belly up and the message board closes and the company shuts it's doors for good.
It's like going to the head of a Chinese street gang and telling them you have kids so could they take their drugs and prostitution to another part of town. You people are OUT OF YOUR MINDS if you think this company has even a single hope in hell of coming out of this with anything at all. The Chinese government actually FUNDS this exact kind of corporate espionage and you people thing they're going to all of a sudden be fair? LOL!! My GOD you people are naive and stupid.
Hey analogphoneline, what do you mean by "When 2005 comes"? It's currently 2013. Did you forget to take your meds. again?
You idiots got sucked in yet again. Oh well, it's just money, LOL!
He probably used it to buy enough Jack Daniels to kill himself over the next year
I heard he was found danging by his neck from a wind turbine out in the desert -- AMSC stock certificates blowing all around the place for miles...
are you trading every single second? If so you must be broke
that's for sure
