    We now expect to return net profitability for the entire year as we have are confident that this quarter’s strong operational and financial performance is indicative of our future performances.
    [Foreign Language] Over the past few quarters JinkoSolar has rapidly adapted to number of fundamental shifts in the market. We now believe that we are prepared to take full advantage of the more favorable industry conditions. Where ASP continues to stabilize the solar industry has begun to consolidate with demand gradually aligning with supply. These fundamental industry shifts are further supported by serious positive developments, domestically and internationally.
    Domestically the formulation of the China state consortium in early July emphasize the strategic importance of the PV industry and set a clear target of 35 gigawatts by 2015. Internationally the settlement agreements between the EU and China are export of solar product, will greatly improve our visibility in the European market.
    [Foreign Language] We believe really to demonstrate our further improved, state of the art technology, reliability and quality of the solar product that have driven our growth. In just the past quarter JinkoSolar received a dynamic mechanical load test certification which is the first in the industry and Dust and Sand verification from TUV Nord as well as the fire resistance certification from Italy's Istituto Giordano.
    This demonstrates just how effective we have become at delivering the best performance in diverse real world conditions. We’re now able to specially customize our modules based on the specifications of customer demand. With such strong production offer and growing demand we’re to leverage our brand, strong relationship and technological leadership as the market recovers. see king al pha trans

  • When I updated my overall Ameritrade account screen, my account value jumped by $5000, compared to my Ameritrade individual stock screen, which I then updated & noted the Last Price for FUQI was just then increased by $1.25 from $1.50 to $2.75, [ie, my 4000 FUQI shares X an increased $1.25/share = $5000 increase in my Ameritrade account value].
    Probably just an Ameritrade SNAFU, & of course this means nothing as long as FUQI is not trading.

    Anyone else seeing this in Ameritrade, or have any possible explanation? ETRADE still shows FUQI symbol as 36102A207 & a last price of $1.50; ... if any of you have any standing good-till-cancelled FUQI sell orders, this might be a reason for watching for any possible/unlikely FUQI pre-market open tomorrow?

    Legacy airlines, despite financial problems and reduced capacity, continued to
    serve nearly all of the markets in 2003 as in 1998, but carried fewer
    passengers as they lost market share to low cost airlines.
    The U.S. commercial airline industry is capital-intensive, labor-
    intensive, and has high fixed costs with revenues and profits closely
    tied to the nation's business cycle. Fixed costs, including labor union
    contracts that are in effect for several years at a time, comprise a
    large portion of airline expenses and airlines must anticipate their
    capacity needs several years in advance. As a result, airlines tend to
    place orders for aircraft during profitable years, but deliveries tend
    to occur during down years. This has contributed to the cyclic nature
    of industry profitability. For example, in the 1990s, the industry
    recorded historically high profits of $47.4 billion from 1993 through
    1999, during which time several airlines signed new agreements with
    their contract work force and ordered new aircraft. This may repeat??

    AMR & LCC merge will mean 3 major US airline conglomerates, with ability to price for success [esp using added fees], for first time in decades.
    Airlines are VERY cyclical stocks, so if economic cycle continues to recover, should do well.
    So maybe "Be greedy [Buy] when others are fearful" of airline industry, per Buffett/other stock gurus?

    the marked improvement in U.S. airline credit market
    access over the last four months has mitigated the worst of the
    liquidity pressures that threatened the survival of some large U.S.
    carriers during a period of extreme revenue weakness linked to the
    global recession and the associated decline in business travel demand.
    For the three most vulnerable U.S. carriers, US Airways, American
    Airlines and United Airlines (all with Issuer Default Ratings of
    'CCC'), risks of a near-term liquidity crisis have abated as a result
    of recent capital-raising success. Still, a continuation of credit
    market accommodation and improving operating trends will be necessary
    before liquidity outlooks can be regarded as stable.

    Airline recovery on the horizon
    If you can handle the turbulence, there are some good opportunities
    among carriers, related sectors.
    While most signs are pointing to recovery in the airline industry,
    investing in the highly cyclical industry is still viewed as a mug's
    game. The rewards are high for those who can stomach the turbulence,
    but so, too, are the risks. The volatility of the industry has led
    analysts to spend years developing strategies to help investors make
    money, based on the patterns of previous cycles. Most investors are
    encouraged to buy at the bottom of the cycle and sell at the top. The
    trouble with airlines is defining either, but this has become easier
    coming out of the recession.
    In recent weeks, data from the top carriers suggest
    that a bottom has been reached.

    Steel industry looks set for a bullish 2013: expert
    The China Post news staff
    March 6, 2013
    The steel industry looks set for a bullish year, China Steel Corp.

    President Sung Chih-yu said yesterday. Sung expressed to media his optimism about the steel industry this year, in which growth is expected to top that of 2012.

    “We recently raised wholesale prices for April and May, and June prices are also expected to stay high,” he said.

    However, Sung said he feels more uncertain about the second half, as price variations for coal and iron ores may affect cost.

    He said prices were strong during the first half, with orders received by China Steel in the first quarter rising 10 percent compared to the fourth quarter. Orders are expected to grow another 3 percent in the second quarter this year, he added.

    As for China, he said prices are still increasing on the other side of the strait. This is especially so after the ascension of new leaders, who immediately announced a new round of infrastructure constructions.

    “All these factors will add to a positive development of the steel industry,” he said.

    One estimate of buyout value is Enterprise Value (Mar 6, 2013) = $208.63M

    Enterprise value (EV), Total enterprise value (TEV), or Firm value (FV) is an economic measure reflecting the market value of a whole business.
    Enterprise value =
    common equity at market value
    + preferred equity at market value
    + minority interest at market value, if any
    + debt at market value
    + unfunded pension liabilities and other debt-deemed provisions
    - associate company at market value, if any
    - cash and cash-equivalents.

    A simplified way to understand the EV concept is to envision purchasing an entire business. If you settle with all the security holders, you pay EV.

    Stock market investors use EV/EBITDA to compare returns between equivalent companies on a risk-adjusted basis. They can then superimpose their own choice of debt levels. In practice, equity investors may have difficulty accurately assessing EV if they do not have access to the market quotations of the company debt. It is not sufficient to substitute the book value of the debt because a) the market interest rates may have changed, and b) the market's perception of the risk of the loan may have changed since the debt was issued. Remember, the point of EV is to neutralize the different risks, and costs of different capital structures.

    Buyers of controlling interests in a business use EV to compare returns between businesses, as above. They also use the EV valuation (or a debt free cash free valuation) to determine how much to pay for the whole entity (not just the equity). They may want to change the capital structure once in control.

    28 patients enrolled for laser/PTX PTA study

    by sillkiey2 Nov 9, 2012 2:58 PM
    kerabouttruth kerabouttruth Feb 8, 2013 1:53 AM Flag

    NOT AS GOOD AS EXPECTED?: SPNC announced final results from the PATENT (Photo-Ablation using the TURBO-Booster(R) and Excimer Laser for In-Stent Restenosis Treatment) study evaluating the safety and efficacy of the Spectranetics peripheral laser atherectomy catheters for the treatment of in-stent restenosis (ISR) in the femoropopliteal artery in the leg. ISR occurs as a result of narrowing of the artery in patients who have undergone stenting for the treatment of peripheral arterial disease (PAD).
    Final results presented today by Professor Thomas Zeller (Herz-Zentrum Bad Krozingen, Germany) at the Leipzig Interventional Course (LINC) 2013 in Leipzig, Germany, indicate 82% and 52% freedom from target lesion revascularization (TLR) at six and 12 months, respectively. Laser atherectomy demonstrated excellent midterm primary patency of 64% as compared to 37% with balloon angioplasty primary patency as published in previous clinical registries. This is a significant improvement considering the challenging nature of these patients.
    Cumulative Major Adverse Events (MAEs) were 2.2% from procedure through 30 days following the procedure.
    Spectranetics is also supporting a physician-initiated pilot study at four centers in Europe evaluating the use of laser atherectomy followed by a paclitaxel-coated angioplasty balloon (PTX PTA) compared with the use of PTX PTA alone in the treatment of in-stent lesions in above-the-knee arteries. Enrollment of 50 patients is expected to be completed in the first half of 2013. Spectranetics' support of the PHOTOPAC (Photoablation Followed by a Paclitaxel-Coated Balloon to Inhibit Restenosis in In-stent Femoropopliteal Obstructions) trial is in the form of an unrestricted research grant.
    "The midterm patency with laser atherectomy for ISR lesions in the PATENT study is encouraging. We look forward to additional data on the combination of debulking with laser followed by local drug delivery," said Professor Thomas Zeller, a co-Principal Investigator of PHOTOPAC.
