no, i have criticism of the company in that they have done a flat out #$%$ job of marketing what is supposedly breakthrough technology in de-icers. it is great to have the product but where has the discussion of it been before today? it is a nice contract given the size of the company certainly. there should have press releases and an obvious market presence at the air show in paris and on line. i would be curious to know how many miles a de-icer puts on a year. but they are CERTAINLY to be congratulated on a contract that is 70% the market cap of the company. maybe now they will roll this out globally and educate the market on the critical need (if so) for the technology. is it available in asia and europe? antarctica?
i think you are right. awful headline. the pr does say it is the 2200 model. it is interesting that the airlines are not yet looking at green vehicles. and sad that the US has become so dysfunctional that in 2015 they are not aggressively transitioning to new energy. PLUG is working on airport support vehicles using fuel cell and that is interesting, but slow progress in adoption.
the short squeeze is one of the great myths of wall street. it happens so seldom with any real impact it is a chimera. it is mist. vapor. maxwell has not been able to announce a truly meaningful contract in years. they are a component maker. and an unimportant one. no one needs the technology. it may be nice to have. but no one needs it. much of the future brightness of maxwell is gone in its failure to convince people of its worth. someday maybe UCs will matter, and by then there will be many makers. CREE is a perfect analogy, but mxwl will not have the success of cree. too late for that. unless they can make a product that is not just a component in a catalog, this stock and company are DOA. could it trade at $3 in a market slump? completely could. they do not have a product that matters much to anyone enough to make this a profitable business after decades of work.
OMG!!! that is AWESOME!!! michelle obama will be there. everything that is there will be great. OMG.
seriously? could this fluff stop at some point? michelle obama will attend? this is somehow meaningful?
had a booth. not on the main floor. actually, not on the auxilliary floor. actually in the temporary building annex. booth consisted of a big poster of reeds and food cart. bruce cost was in the main floor. as were many other natural drink manufacturers. the booth was - without any question - the messiest booth in the entire show. piles of stuff everywhere. it was a sight to see. maybe the booth cost a few hundred dollars to put up outside the food cart although it was a double booth. and it was at the back of the annex. most people didnt know there was an annex as it was actually outside the building under a temporary roof. $84,000,000 company with a booth like a garage start-up.
and the apparent need to consider emergency measures to stay solvent. very impressive. looks like jay walker is running Hooli.
i mean the market was off by 2% so i can understand the stock trading through the floor. someone should make tee times and beta the like machine for another 3 months.
nor did it say that this was all an expense. in fact, they didnt mentioin anything about it. but i am sure the global exposure will be amazing. and what will this add per share in loss and how will it be funded? no mention. before you complain about me, be right. then we can talk. so far, my take has been entirely correct. they coudl have posted a profit. i would have been wrong. i wasnt.
of course, i only was entirely correct so far. with the stock down by 65% and expenses through the roof. but you keep posting how awesome everything is. please.
Russell Rebalance Climax - The Busiest Trading Day Of The Year
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 06/26/2015 - 14:35
Today will almost certainly be the busiest trading day of the year, as the Russell indexes go through their annual rebalancing/reconstitution. But, as ConvergEx's Nick Colas notes, Friday’s close will be the end of a trade that began almost 2 months ago, as traders began handicapping which equities would be included for the first time or swapped between various Russell indices. Since the beginning of May, for example, the stocks that will be added to the Russell 2000 are up 11%, and those being deleted from the same index are down 2% over the same time period. In short, for one day – and this is the day - every U.S. equity market participant, no matter what their investment mandate, needs to think like a trader. Throw in a little Greek drama going into the weekend, and it could be quite a day...
some massive crosses after trading apparently on an options expiration day. shows you the market is utterly rigged. dont every think it isnt. http://www.nasdaq.com/symbol/mygn/time-sales?time=0
actual volume was about 950,000. note the huge volume reported after close in what should have been an SEC/Nasdaq announced explanation. so who knows if the rally was real or another set of rigged trades? someone knows.
nice work. fortunately the activist investors are on hand to further wreck the company. well done. make tee times tomorrow. i dont think coming into work is helping. maybe test the like machine at the country club.
jacosa, i am long at maybe $8. and for a long time. my concern has always been poor management including a lack of overseas expansion, poor internal R&D, horrific marketing, misplaced financial management and raging ego. 1 billion in buybacks? how awful. they could not have figured out how to better spend those funds on - um - cancer research. that is just savagely bad management.
