Shorts appear to be running low on Ammo! A few $m here and a few $m there and eventually we are talking real money. Should I loan out more of my shares to shorts or call the ones on loan back in.....? This is starting to be a lot of fun.......and profitable!
Growth is the key deliverable for 2Q! That we will get! Net income will happen, but, not yet! Bashers have already got their 'big miss' posts layed out and ready to go, I am sure.
Sounds like you should short some more PLUG shares! I have some more shares in cash accounts that I can make available to shorts if the interest rate is attractive enough. Contact Schwab...... Disclaimer.....I am not responsible for your losses!
Not at all! I made a very nice profit during the 2013-14 'preview' run! Lightened up and have been accumulating shares again since shorts overplayed their hand. Shorts have been paying nice 'rent' to borrow my shares until the coming major up move gets momentum. Then it will be time to pull my shares back from shorty and enjoy the ride! Sell some into the new highs and hold a core position for the longer term. Works for me! Some advice.....if you are getting depressed by your investments, you are doing something wrong!
Past three days have been over 50%! Interesting, that has only kept the stock even to slightly up! That is very telling as an indication of the true underlying pressure. The question isn't if, it is when will the shorts panic? They all work together until they don't..........! It is much easier to be patient as a long. The most a PLUG long can lose currently is about $2.40 per share.....a short, that is the most they can gain with a potential loss that is theoretically unlimited.
What is the Canadian Regulatory Authority for Securities Trading? In the US we have the SEC, but, this is a Canadian Company. The numbers the company just reported as 'proxy voting results' are certainly should get a re-look. Particularly with PAL's managements previous record!
Someone help me out here? Maybe I don't understand Canadian vote counting, but, it appears that only just over 10% of the outstanding shares were in the voting for the 'arrangement' and the directors? KPMG got a much higher participation share vote? It certainly doesn't smell legal to me? Thoughts? I recall comments by shareholders who were kicked out of the system when they attempted to vote their shares as a 'no' vote?
missjhurt, I assume you are driving alone down the highway in your fuel guzzling SUV on your way to your day job as a well fracker! Right on!
Just a publically available published data statistic......? So, what is your issue? Don't like facts...?
Shorts continue to hammer away at PLUG.
So their milling operation is shut down for several weeks, but, they are able to continue to mine underground, high grade material. OK, that is good. Now, they have accumulated a nice stockpile of high Pd content material on the surface, they are in desperate need of cash flow from Pd production to do some catch up, and they are ready to start up milling and concentrating. So, what do they do....They start diluting their high grade stockpile with marginal surface (1 g/ton) material which results in lower efficiency and lower yield and higher cost! More processing of tons of waste and slower production. Brilliant! Yes I know what I am talking about! Think about it! These people don't even understand basic material balance and flow analysis.
Unfortunately, nothing the SEC does is ever good for stockholders. They announce an investigation and the stock goes down. They halt trading and the stock goes down. They indict the management and the stock goes down. They delist the stock and shareholders lose. They fine the company and the stock goes down. Lets hope they let the market take its course and PLUG continues to grow! If they want t punish some fraudulent traders, that is fine, but, be careful what you wish for! Best to all longs!
Nice try, shorty! Top line growth momentum is the focus on this quarter. No one expects positive net income at this point! There is nothing stopping you from increasing your short position.....except, maybe risk!
More shares to cover later. Yesterday's action had a 51.4% short volume ratio on reported volume!
The real whisper number that shorts should be concerned about is the number of shorts that are about to get their #$%$ burned by PLUG!
The shorts are sooo 'clever' in their attempt to try raise expectations beyond reality so PLUG will appear to 'miss'. I am so completely fooled by their stealth and cunning that I will probably sell my entire position because I will be taken in by their ruse. On the other hand, I think I will continue to ignore their BS and build my position further on any near term weakness! Hydrogen fuel cells are just beginning to experience commercial scale acceptance and PLUG will do very well for long investors! Sleep well shorts, I know I will!
They do, however, pay other 'tutes' for the right to borrow their shares! I assure you, they pay the going rate based on supply and demand...! More demand (HTB) means higher costs! You think if I loaned you 5m shares to short at say 5% and I get an offer to loan out the shares to another player at 9%, that I am not going to be calling you for an adjustment? Or, I can sell the shares out from under you if you don't want to play! A real short squeeze can be a lot of fun to watch!
Keep selling shorty! The 33m+ shares will be easy cover once the panic begins! It is only a matter of price!
