That's what my TD Ameritrade shows.
Shucks, I wanted the job. I love golf and my handicap is certainly better than the incumbent, so surely I am qualified!
I also am wondering if this stock is legit. My question is: how can you become a conglomerate with very little money? I originally bought on the gamble that the clean up and making of oil more fluid was worth losing a few bucks. Now it seems that FDMF is in more businesses than GE. Why does it need an international consultant, when it has little if any USA sales? Why does a South African provider of housing get involved with a miniscule American company in completely unrelated fields? Does this pass the smell test? Of course, being the gambler that I am, I have an irrational hope that this stock may fly. The last thing I need or want is a what idiots call a "good write-off".
I can not find the article. Can you please post a cite.
I read the latest filing and it certainly looks bad. I wrote my thesis 50 years ago on inadequate capitalization of a corporation. This stock fits the case. Great idea, but no money to bring it to fruition. Our problem as stockholders is that if a white knight comes along with adequate capital, we SHers will be diluted out of sight. If I had the money, I would wait to buy the patents, etc., from the trustee in bankruptcy. I hope that I am wrong.
Only going on what the 2 Drs. told me. I didn't care what the diagnosis was. I only wanted relief. Funny thing happened to my benefit. I was staying in a dorm and of course I couldn't sleep, so I wandered down to the TV room. There I found a judge's high school daughter. She could see that I was in great pain and when I told her the Dr forgot to prescribe any pain medication, she said: "I can take care of that". She returned with a big bag of Darvon. At that time the drug was split in halves, so that the kids were throwing away the half that made them drowsy and taking the dope part. She probably was the biggest pusher in the judge's hometown. She saved my life!.
I have to disagree. I go to a stock's board before I buy. Usually one can tell by what is said what the problems are with the company. Granted the posters are stating their opinions and not necessarily facts, but it is helpful to me to know whether some long time investors believe the management to be a bunch of crooks and liars.
FCEL will not rise because of liberal hype. There are too many people crying out like the little boy; "Look the emperor has no clothes." Surprisingly the oil & gas industry may be one of the largest customers. I was reading where the Big Boys are planning huge LNG plants on the coasts of African nations in order to supply Europe & others with gas. These remote regions, plants and new towns need a lot of power and fuel cells may be the only way to provide such quickly and cheaply.
Surely there will be savings by consolidating the companies. The costs of 4 companies being sold on the market, administrative costs, accounting, publications, SEC reporting, etc. surely are greater than the costs to one company.
I hadn't thought about Spiro Agnew in decadess. Thanks for the memory. He drove the media and the so called intellectuals up a wall.
I think a share offering is the only way. I will scream, but if the filter is great, surely the company can get new investors to pony up without a big discount in price. We have to use someone else's money, so we are getting a big benefit except when a company sells new shares for 1/2 the market price.
I discovered to my dismay that some of the solar companies and fly wheel companies that the govts subsidized went bankrupt. A company can't last on govt handouts alone. Tesla developed a product that at least for now is selling. Will it sell enough to last is still a big question.
If this company is going to make it big,its product should sell on its merits and not on force. I don't think the various govts are going to make us rich.
Bank loan is out. The OCC and Federal Reserve would jump all over a bank for making a loan to a company with little revenue and no physical assets. I was on the BD of a bank and I remember the regulator telling us that she wanted to be able to pick up the debtor's file and see that it was almost lost proof. She didn't care about reliable the debtor had been in the past or the rosy future prospects. A loan to a company such as BLGO would result in a classified loan from the outset. I hope we do not wind up indebted to some venture capitalist for obvious reasons.
I am not a scientist, but many questions arise from the example of blowing through a straw into glass of water. Wouldn't the CO2 blown through the straw into a small glass of water be many times more concentrated than the CO2 from the atmosphere in addition to be forcibly injected into the water rather being slowly absorbed by contact with the vast oceans? Moreover what preindustrial times were used? Are we talking about a specific time or is it the million of years before industrialization. I am sure you could pick out times with few volcanic eruptions as a base to compare with our times. Then there is always the question of the Gaia hypothesis. If there is more CO2 in the atmosphere will not plants begin to thrive and multiple? Has there been enough time for Mother Earth to bring herself into balance? I could go on, but just because a person claims to be a scientist does not mean his or her theories are Gospel. Is it possible that a particular scientist's grants, reputation and employment may depend on being politically correct and not on applying scientific principles. I will never forget watching a PHD in chemistry from Princeton wilt under cross-examination by an attorney who had some knowledge of chemistry and who did his homework. My daughter just finished chemo-therapy and radiation, so I got to see first hand how uncertain physicians are. Might the same true for other fields?
One of the best I ever heard was a sportscaster asking the football coach of a nearby university: "Since you were 0-11 for the season, were you happy to win this game?".
YES! They can be. I know of an ideal spot. The juncture of 2 major interstate highways, a Pepsi plant less than 12 miles away, a coal power plant less than a mile, a penitentiary less than a mile and an area with oil and gas exploration. The CO2 could be sold to the bottling company, the oil industry fro enhanced oil recovery and to hot houses for growing vegetables. Heat of course has a lot of uses that a large truck stop should be able figure out, besides the coal energy plant and the penitentiary. Don't sell human ingenuity short.
Why do you come to that conclusion? Clean Energy Fuels and other companies are building NG & LNG stations throughout the USA. It may take a processor to convert the NG into hydrogen, but that should be no problem. The question is cost for this additional step, but there may be valuable by-products.
