The article shows that fuel cells can be used successfully to power residences on a
large, National scale & HYGS is a fuel cell manufacturer. They have apparently elected to not address that market.
There's a lot that I don't understand here. They are a growing company with highly regarded technology, badly in need of proprietary products. On the surface (IMO)
it looks like an attractive area to address, one wiith a proven successful track record in another country. Obviously, I'm missing something (or many things).
I mean... if you can get hydrogen gas (full of BTUs) from wind turbines & elctrolizers virtually free after costs are
amortized (in gigawatts) & cheaply store it & deliver it from the country to the cities (in megawatts) via existing pipelines & then deliver to the residences (in kilowatts) thru existing thin little underground pipelines that are in place by the gazillions, where it can then be converted to electricity by fuel cells, which are plentiful...why isn't there just a teensy weensy movement in that direction?
1) Japen promotes Home Fuel Cell on Path to Hydrogen Society (BloombergBusiness 11/8/14)
2) Fuel Cells: Opening New Markets for Today's Energy Resources (the EnergyCollective 6/8/15)
Several interesting points: (1) Japen has over 100,000 residental fuel cell systems installed & their Govt's goal is to have 5,300,000 installed by 2030. Nuclear has lost face there & in other countries. (2) If you Google "Residental Fuel Cells", you'll find many diffrerent makes & types availabe here in a broad range of prices.
(3) Google "American Gas Association" (AGA) and you'l find well over 200 gas utilities with thin little underground pipelines leading to gazillions of homes here. Some are "Gas & Electric" (like PG&E) that are effectively competing with Elon Musk's SolarCity ( & Vivint Solar & Sunrun ) to be the energy supplier to residences in their area.
As you know, fuel cells need a perpetual supply of either gas or hydrogen to create heat & electrcity. Don't understand why some members of the gas utility industry don't promote hydrogen fuel cells to their customers. Maybe gas generates more money for them or maybe there's not enough supply of hydrogen around but it's forthcoming shortly.
Every winter, thousands & thousands of homes get blacked out for 4 or 5 days...solar with batteries only gives them about 6 hours. Seems like hydrogen fuel cells would be a proven, cheaper & reliable alternative & eliminate those aesthetically offensive solar panels (whose life is unknown). As brucekettelle points out, it's a mammoth market just waitung to be taken...maybe it's forthcoming in the near future. This whole renewable energy thing is really still evolving.
caused by huge increase in renewable energy in yesterday's WSJ on page B1. (6/29/15)
Interesting multifaceted article outlines serious problems the grid is having caused by extreme fluctuations in the power/electricity caused by all the new solar & wind installations, which are expected to grow significantly.
The solution, the article points out, appears to be the ability to store all the increased energy & release it incrementally, on demand, which seems to be easier & cheaper to do with P2G then with solar & batteries.
Recommeded reading for HYGS longs...imo very bullish for HYGS, altho it was not named specifically.
Did you get a chance to look at Energous (WATT) yet?
It's a truely intersting situation...when you've reviewed it, please give an opinion...IMO the upside is so big it's hard to comprehend. And it's only got 13,000,000 shares out. It's serously worth a look. Won 3 awards at the
2015 Consumer Electronics Show in Vega in January. Appears to have Apple under contract for ALL - emphasize All - their portable electronic devices. Others will follow. Strong patent position.
If you have so much time & energy you ought to look @ WATT...Seriously.
Tuesday they traded 25% of their shares outstanding & ther stock rose 30%. All in one day. Never seen that before, It's still under 10. It setteled down yesterday but it's probably one of the best stories you'll ever hear.
Only 12,900,000 shares out. Requires a little DD but not much because it's so much simpler then HYGS & has the potential to be infinitely bigger. I'm equally long there as I as am here but it's really a better story because the potential is far bigger & it's going to come much faster.
Seriously, you (and others) should look at it.
With 25% of the stock outstanding traded in one day & the stock up 30% & several after hours trades in the afternoon & morning premarket...this is NOT the result of a few week old articles, tho they were excellent.
Something has defiintely happened that is extremely positive.
There will be fluctuations...no stock goes sraight up...there will be profit taking & people reaching goals & vacating their positions...but if this system works only HALF as well as planned, this stock is so dirt cheap even at 20 that it's unbelievable. Relax & enjoy the ride,,,could be one of the best you've ever had.
Think the deal with the tier one company gave them an exclusive for only a year & a half...don't know where to find its outline...does anybody remember those terms?
You're right "Alice"...something's definitely happening. The thing is, if something positive is happening, this stock is dirt cheap at $20.00...I wish tomorrow would come.
This is what we need about now...somebody knows something...we're going to have a million share day with strong appreciation. Lets hupe it's as good as it looks.
was unprofessional, spontaneous buying..."had to get filled immediately, at virtually any price".
It could be interpreted many ways, but IMO it's a busllish indicator...somebody knows something posative is coming very soon...sadley, it's just an O.
Sorry...I'm a new investor & would be most grateful if you could advise how you know that Ken Griffin & Citadel
had taken such a large stake...and is the 5.4% stake a perentage of their fund or RKUS's shares outstanding?
Either way, seems like very large position. Thanks much for your help.
The chart & closingf price shown on my Broker's site (TD Ameritrade) shows after hours trading closing at $11.79. Everywhere else it shows a closing price of $11.56. The volume on their site is the same as Yahoo's
so that in itself is somewhat of an inaccuracy but it will be interestiong to see what it looks like in the morning.
Incidently, a stock service company called the Oxford Club has a subservice called :"The Oxford Communique"
which is dramatically & wildly bullish on Ruckus. You can Google them or their phone is 800 684 8571...if you read their Review, you'll want to buy more. The "Communique" is a good product with a wide circulation & I think that their extremely bullish presentation is having a posative impact on the stock.
