  • Nice pop but they are few and far between. Still underwater but as soon as I hit B/E I'm outta here. Know a few of the employees and they all say it sucks to work at Ballard. They downsize but then hit the leftover workers with extra duties to take up the slack. No vision of growth with that attitude. Much better fuel cell options out there......

    Sentiment: Sell

  • NEVER, EVER, TRUST A CHINESE COMPANY..!!!!!!!!!!! Play with money you don't care if you lose. If you find yourself in the black....GET OUT!!!!!! Never look back. This company is a case in point...

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • The writing is on the wall. Time to go to ground until after all this craziness settles down.

    Just a little concerned...this being relatively new technology and all. Seems like a legitimate, non-invasive technology to deal with minor fat accumulation in healthy people. Not just an esthetic treatment but with health benefits as well. But I wonder if a lot of people who are in the "kinda, pretty fat" category might not be candidates for this treatment however. I am rather talking through my hat here. Not trying to cause trouble or attempting to incite panic. I actually like non-invasive medical procedures.....if they work. Not related but I had a couple of minor laproscopic surgeries and was so impressed with the skill, outcome and minimal scarring and extremely brief stay in the clinic doing the procedures. Also wondering about competitors. I see a couple listed in the Yahoo stock info. You could buy them all and see who really takes off. Even though this tech has been approved I just feel a little dubious about the frozen, crystallized fat cells being absorbed into the body (ie: blood stream) and not causing residual problems. Thanks for the info. Will do more homework.

    Classic case of snooze you lose. Friend told me about it a year ago. Would have been great to get in on the ground floor or even a couple of stories up. Can this go higher...?

    Sentiment: Hold

  • What a spectacular blunder!! Why are these CEOs paid so much when they can't even see that a business move is going to be a major failure. We don't want you in Canada!!! We already have enough stores in every neighbourhood selling cheap #$%$ from China. We don't like you because you are an American company and we already have Wallmart. Major fail..!!!

    Hard to belive JDSU was over $100

    What most people fail to appreciate is that this was just one of many over-hyped stocks during the tech boom that skysocketed far beyond its normal, income determined stock value.. We bought and bought JDSU along with all the other internet and tech darlings (eg, AOL, NOK, SUN, HP, APPL and hundreds more) and if we were smart, we got out when it was obvious things were getting ugly. The stock is now worth whatever people think it's worth. If you are still hoping it will get back to pre-crash levels then you are deluding yourself. Plenty more opportunities out there. Sell it for a loss, use that to offset your gains and then get on with it......

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    I guess you feel that diving from $20 to less than $2 in just 2 years is "not going anywhere".......

    Body Cameras...??? Whose are they using....???

    This article may have some useful info for you/us/me.. http://preview.tinyurl.com/qd5gmwk Basically, it's not so much about selling cameras but in getting the associated follow up business of evidence storage and support. Can't see Google not wanting to get their greedy little mitts into this as soon as it looks profitable. But they're already in hot water for collecting data that the NSA had free access to...... It's going to get interesting...

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Can't imagine they are actually manufacturing their own lenses, mobos and whatevers. Does anyone know who basic models they will be adapating...???

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Sure, you can just go with the lastest GoPro model and be quite confident in what you are getting, but after doing a little research on Amazon it's pretty obvious there are lots of competitors out there and FOR CHEAPER and WITH AS GOOD OR BETTER SPECS...!!! Don't see a lot of recovery potential here unless they come up with a new line or some signicant improvements

    why will Ballard win over batteries??

    Too simplistic. Way deeper analysis would probably yield the opposite viewpoint. Unless that guy in Japanm who has invented a reverse osmosis procedure to have a small motor run on water, decides to give his patent away, producing hydrogen in large volumes requires lots of energy. Fuel cells may be cleaner in their operation but getting the fuel costs just as much as gasoline

    Sentiment: Hold
