    Well, that's news, thanks for enlightening us. It might have been news if you stated who the injector competitors were. Cash burn is a problem?

    Where have you been for the last 5 years?

    Well, that's a reasonable point. Keep them coming. Everyone needs to know the up and the down side of this thing. I'm long WPRT but have concerns about more then a few issues. I may not recover my loses. When an investment returns less then a 10 year treasure bond and the CEO is earning over 2 million a year there are things to consider and they aren't all positive.

    Just wondering, do you live in a tent which is setup next to your electric car on BLM land and write from a solar powered commuter with a dish tacked up on a tree?

    You keep ducking my question, do you expect the worlds oil exporting countries to just cap their wells because a few people tell them the world is getting too warm? Nat gas and Nuc power are fine but, don't forget to call or write the heads of the OPEC nations and tell them to slow down.

    You are just too far out there to be taken seriously.

    Well, everyone is entitled to have a short position, sell calls or buy put but, help us out and give us some numbers to support your position. Your comment about earnings is just speculation. I agree that the cash burn is a problem. Have anything else?

    An investor mush have more the CEO sucker punch comments.

    What does UIS have that IBM of CSC could possibly want to buy?

    This was a dead dog 40 years ago and it's worse today. How does UIS even stay in business. Another reverse split is the only way the shares of UIS move up.

    Wonder how many UIS servers are used by Google and Facebook? Only the US Government is dumb enough to buy UIS stuff and they can print fake money to do it.

    Japan has been in a mess for so long, I would caution anyone from using any information about Japan for investment decisions. From an investment standpoint I would advise that people forget they every heard of Japan.

    And that has what to do with the revenue and earnings of WPRT? Environmental views are out of place here unless they are in the context of sales and earnigns. There are plenty of places for those discussions and this is not the forum for global warming.

    Take it somewhere else.

    Diesel Exhaust & WPRT

    by wayne_lamontagne Jul 14, 2014 3:17 PM
    pcmountaindog pcmountaindog Jul 14, 2014 4:04 PM Flag

    That's not the case. Modern diesel has in-line exhaust filters which prevent PM10 from being emitted. In addition, to eliminate NO2 emissions, the exhausts have UREA injections systems to break down the N02 in into C02. If you run out of DEF fluid, the computers will shut the system down to limp mode to get the truck to a place where DEF added. You won't see diesel smoke bellowing out of trucks any longer. As the older trucks go out of service these issue are not in the picture. To make them burn cleaner fuel pressures into the injectors can be 25000 PSI to atomize the fuel. Modern diesel is not as dirty as you are making it out to be.

    Please keep it accurate, it might not be as clean a Nat gas but, it's not like the diesel of the past.

    Nat Gas is about one issue and only issue only. Lower fuel cost.

    If you insist on preaching your environmental philosophy here on a business forum at least keep it accurate.

    Ancient Sunlight & WPRT

    Just wondering. If the plants worked with the sun and used it to store CO2,,,,,,,,, where was the CO2 before the plants put it in the ground. By any chance was it in the atmosphere? Are we not doing the right thing by putting it back where it belongs?

    Someone once asked Einstein why is it important that humans survive anyway?

    Does't have much to do with WPRT.

    Arctic Ice Melt, Military & WPRT

    CFCs are not fuel and not in the same volume.

    Bleak outlooks --- positive outlooks are not in play here. We all must face the real numbers. Energy is not going to stay in the ground if we are to provide for 7 - 10 billion people. If energy use is cut, GDP will go with it.

    I am not advocating for one way or the other but, I must deal with the outcome in either case. My future depends on my assets growing and my bet is on more consumption and more climate change which comes with it.

    I live in a tent in back country areas 75 days each year. I have floated and camped for over 150 days and more then 1500 miles of the Colorado River in Grand canyon on 6 trips and thousands more miles on other rivers. I am watching the wild Colorado river disappear and I don't like what I see. I have no desire to see things destroyed but I must face reality. I don't make the rules.

    Cognitive dissonance has no place in investing.

    Wayne, I really do understand you concern but, it's not not going to change. People in mass will not react until it's too late. Nat Gas is another fuel which will add to total change which is already under way. The biggest problem of all is that our government and central back are running pyramid which demands expansion for ever or people slide into unemployment.

    The reality is we must accept these changes or be willing to push many into poverty as we cut consumption. When the pyramid crumbles that will be the time to face the music.

    The only question of this forum is will this addition factor help to drive profits for WPRT.

    The ice is going to melt and it's time to stop talking about it.

    Surely, you are not suggesting Japan is in good economic condition. If you are correct, and world consumption drops, so does inflation and the resulting deflation spells much higher levels of poverty. What happens in the US when deflation grows and unemployment doubles or even triples. The FED floods the system with cash in a desparate effort to get inflation and consumption growing again.

    There is a down side to both views for sure. You might be right and consumption and population might drop but with a few local exceptions that is not the case now. We are at 7 billion and growing and I suggest that will not change because some feel environmental issues are more important then one's individual family. Self preservation and greed will prevail until the resources dwindle. You don't see our elected leaders living a life of conservation.

    I wish you luck with your WPRT investment.

    So, Wayne, just why is this a problem? It's natural for things to change. Why is this an issue? At most people die off and things keep right on going. How is that a problem?

    You do know that at some point the sun is going to expand and consume the earth. So what short term problem are you suggesting we solve.

    I have no issue with climate change. 60 million people died as a result of WW2. This is not that a big problem and if it is it just doesn't matter.

    If nat gas was the only fuel available tomorrow morning, we would still be in the same situation.

    If we have this problem now with 100 years of fuel use and we are consuming more fuel each day, it's time to stop wasting time talking about it. Bring it on.

    Are you suggesting the world is going to actually cut back energy use and stop breading like rats?

    Your point is well stated. My concern is that we could 5 years out and not 2.

  • pcmountaindog pcmountaindog Jun 27, 2014 12:21 PM Flag

    Yes, business borrow all the time but, there is a huge difference between a company like apple borrowing to distribute dividends to its share holders then a company which borrows too much before they have the cash flow to support the payments. A solid company can borrow against growing earnings at a reasonable rate. WPRT is not in that class yet. Companies with a weak balance sheet also have to pay too high a rate. WPRT is not borrowing and getting a positive 200 basis point return above the loan rate. This kind of debt is making things worse. The wrong people are getting the cash flow and it's not the owners of the company which are you and I.

  • pcmountaindog pcmountaindog Jun 27, 2014 12:14 PM Flag

    You have a point but, interest payments on debt hit earning we don't have. Any new use of debt will be an additional increase in negative cash flow. We will not see real earnings until this stops.
