  • Plug Power Has A Bright Future Ahead

    Disclosure: The author has no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. This article is for educational purposes only and it should not be taken as an investment recommendation. Investing in stock markets involves a number of risks and readers/investors are encouraged to do their own due diligence and familiarize themselves with the risks involved. (More...)


    Summary
    •The subsidies from the Japanese government will increase the demand for fuel cells.
    •Japan's 25-year plan will cause the country to import fuel cells, which will create an opportunity for fuel cell manufacturers.
    •General Electric's decision to enter the fuel cell segment will put considerable pressure on smaller players.

    Volatility is the name of the game for the stocks operating in the fuel cell manufacturing sector. These stocks tend to take wild swings on a small piece of news, creating an opportunity for the savvy traders to make some quick gains. The trend is consistent with most of the companies operating in the early stage of life cycle of an industry - fuel cells are going to be an important energy source for a number of applications and the long-term future is certainly bright - however, the short-term price movements will be volatile due to the involvement of traders as well as the emotional reaction to the news.

    Summary
    •It has been a month since the launch of Vitaros in the UK, the first of multiple expected launches over 2014.
    •Apricus Biosciences has been actively looking for a partner for Femprox and seeking approval for RayVa.
    •In spite of the pullback, investors should stay the course with Apricus.

    Apricus Biosciences (NASDAQ:APRI) and Takeda Pharmaceutical recently launched Vitaros in the United Kingdom, a topical cream for treating Erectile Dysfunction. This is the first launch in an anticipated series of launches this year and representing a major milestone in bringing Apricus to a point of monetizing Vitaros. Over the rest of the year, Apricus has announced that investors can continue to see launches throughout the rest of Europe and Canada.
    I CERTAINLY HOPE THE PPS DOES NOT DROP 40 CENTS WITH EACH LAUNCH

    JA Solar to Complete Half of Planned Solar Farms in August

    - Comments Email Print




    JA Solar Holdings Co. (JASO), the world’s third-biggest solar-panel maker, expects to complete construction of a 100-megawatt solar farm in China’s Gansu province in the northwest and connect it to grids in August.

    This is a half of the solar power plants JA had planned to build this year, President Xie Jian said today in a phone interview. The company will start construction of another 100-megawatt plant in August in the Hebei province in the north.

    “Everything is on track,” Xie said. JA Solar will “later transfer solar power plants or cooperate with others on construction.”

  • that's just as possible a scenario as some of the others,,, imho, gallen

  • Summary
    •The original equitable damage award to PharmAthene has been reversed, and another equitable damage award is not available.
    •Even though Delaware Supreme Court stated that expectation damage awards are available in similar legal cases, PharmAthene will not receive an expectation damage award.
    •Based on all information derived from court briefs, rulings and opinions, PharmAthene will only receive a small reliance damage award which will cause SIGA's share price to significantly increase.

    I believe those people who have already analyzed the PharmAthene (NYSEMKT:PIP) vs. SIGA (NASDAQ:SIGA) legal case are trying to over complicate the Delaware Supreme Court's (NYSE:SC) May 24, 2013 opinion. Many people still believe the original equitable damages award granted by Judge Parsons is still an option since the Supreme Court seemed to be throwing out Judge Parsons' damage award only as it related to reversing promissory estoppel. The below excerpt starting at the bottom of page 37 and continuing on page 38 of the above Supreme Court opinion seemed to be interpreted by a lot of people as to the possibility of an equitable damage award still being an option for Judge Parsons.


    "Because we had not previously addressed whether Delaware recognizes Type II preliminary agreements and permits a plaintiff to recover expectation damages, and because it is unclear to what extent the Vice Chancellor based his damages award upon a promissory estoppel holding rather than upon a contractual theory of liability predicated on a Type II preliminary agreement,102 we reverse the Vice Chancellor's damages award and remand the case for reconsideration of the damages award consistent with this opinion."

    Throughout their May 24, 2013 Supreme Court opinion, the Supreme Court Judges were consistent that the promissory estoppel position established by Judge Parsons would not stand and that it was a major problem in Judge Parsons ruling as per this excerpt from Page 2 of the opinion.

  • When the sun ain't out
    Even if excess power is stored, it may not be enough to provide for a full night of use. Or be enough to handle a rainy day when little if any solar power is produced. What then? That's where an interesting power backup effort by a cell phone company comes into play. Sprint is installing hydrogen power cells as backup power sources at some 30% of its cell towers.

    Publicly traded Plug Power is a leader in the hydrogen power space, only its hydrogen power cells are being used to power lift vehicles in factories and distribution centers. These are vehicles that used to be powered by batteries. The company has some big name converts, too, including the world's largest retailer, Wal-Mart. A single order from this retail Goliath will increase Plug Power's installed base by more than a third. And it gives this fuel cell pioneer's image a huge boost.

    But step back and think about what Plug Power's technology is doing in the lift market—it's displacing batteries. And Sprint is using fuel cells to replace generator power back-ups. Put the two together and you can see where fuel cells could be viewed as a way to provide power at night for those with rooftop solar installations. That would allow SolarCity and SunPower customers to completely cut from the grid.
