    PT $101.00????? Next 12 months??????? "Must??????"

    I've been in HIMX for sometime. I don't see any valuation in HIMX that could justify a 900% gain in 12 months. That's what I think.

    Well, day traded CBR. Boys, you're looking at a fat cat. Yup, cleared a solid $120 net! I'd light up a 5 cent cigar if I wasn't out of them. Actually PERI does look like better potential. Moving my CBR money in for a small position to see where it goes.

    Well, the error was fortuitous for me. Up about 4 in half a day. And it always comes down to DD no matter what gets posted on these boards. CBR has 6K employees and $1 billion. They are global consultants. I wont be holding for the long, but think I can make some money. No more interest in Cyber. And I do like RSYS. I could be missing an opportunity but I expect a slight pullback bring the price under $4. Should that happen I'll take a position. Currently analysts are calling for 10% gain.

    Well, have gotten a little bounce from CBR. Bought in @ $1.93 and it's moved to $1.99. A case of buying at the right time or dumb luck. Probably both. Sure it will slip back soon enough. Having fun all the same.

    Over the weekend sat down and had a long chat with a buddy I bounce trading ideas off of. He too would be reluctant to buy FCEL at this time. He doesn't think anyone will lose money buying now. Just feels it will be a long wait before seeing strong results. Particularly oil prices will need to come up before attention goes back to alternative fuels.

    We both took small positions with CBR. Even though they are showing some negative numbers I think they are well partnered and connected. $3? $4? Why not.

    I'm unsure of FCEL as an investment at the moment. I don't think there's a risk to losing money. But I'm unsure how much upside there will be. Have been thinking about reinvesting. I think I'll put the money elsewhere. It will be interesting for me to watch you two work the numbers to a nice profit. Good luck. I'll probably regret standing on the sidelines.

    Yeah, about Glu. We all seem to be holding more than we need. Ah, greed. As I've mentioned before, I am confident the forward guidance will be good. And I have a feeling Glu will be producing strong numbers in Q2 and Q3. Again, TS will have little to do with 2016 unless released before the last part of the year, which I doubt. Should Glu touch $7.20 I will have doubled. I may sell half and let the rest just ride. But, of course, greed may make me do something else.

    FCEL is getting talk of moving to the low to mid $20's. I think there is a good chance to visit $10 to $12 in the near. Too busy today to make a decision, but may buy on Monday. PLUG is also looking good. My two cents.

    Six, I'm on the fly today. Trying to tie down work before the weekend. So I can't go too deeply into things. Not a fan of pharmaceuticals and the like. Personally I avoid them. Lack of knowledge I guess. But, it doesn't take much to sink a stock in that sector. I'd rather take my risk some place else. So, no TXMD for me. I like RSYS client base and their partners. This could have many positive returns going forward. Will be taking a position with them. CBR has been so beaten down it might just be worth placing a bet on it. They are mostly maintenance and consultants . Kind of iffy, but again may be worth a bet. And Quantumstock brought our attention to NVDA. This may be a good play going forward. Yes, VR/AR but they are in many handheld devices. And let's face it, handheld is the future. Hoping for some kind of pullback with both RSYS and NVDA before buying.

    Also, worth keeping an eye on NVDA. Since Tuesday up $2.37, or 7.5%.

    Regarding fuel cells. First, FCEL continues its climb. Friends who follow FCEL very closely also are keeping an eye towards PLUG. Like FCEL PLUG was beaten down and is now turning around. Last, Elon Musk has created the power wall which stores solar energy so a house can draw upon it overnight. These new storage cells are getting their start in Hawaii.

    I don't like to compare people like Jobs and Musk, for each is his own person. But, they do share things in common. To date SpaceX is private and I'll jump on it whenever it goes public. And you're right, so many projects keep emerging from his head. He has repeatedly told California his hyperloop would be a more cost effective and safer form of transportation. But Cal wants to keep the train.

    Musk is also aware that batteries need to be recharged and quickly. He has been building stations hoping to have a link from coast to coast. This is what fuel cell has to do. And they have started. I have a renewed interest in FCEL. And with all the improvements made with solar panels I think the time is coming to buy companies like SCTY. The new panels work on ultraviolet light, meaning it works even on cloudy days. Meaning better performance in the northeast and other overcast areas. And last, why I'm considering both, OPEC has been working hard to bring oil prices up. Buying companies like FCEL or SCTY or TSLA just makes sense. Ahead of the curve, as it were.

    Dave, as you know Elon is involved with the magafactory for batteries and with SolarCity. TSLA is now providing batteries with SolarCity in Hawaii. The batteries are called storage walls. They are design to keep a house powered through the night. SCTY has been beaten down badly over the last year. From a high of $63 to a low of $16. Now @ $26. I like Elon's vision and think SCTY is now priced for buying.

    Just took a peek at your posts. You seem to be Mr. Doom and Gloom. Couldn't find one positive post. Well, as the saying goes, "Go with your strengths." Being negative must be your strength. Good for you. But I'll just be adding you to my ignore list.

    Con't with RSYS: Have been reading up on RSYS. Interesting the various platforms, much for telecom. They also are doing wireless. I wonder if they might be recruited for VR/AR. Currently the headsets need to be tethered to a console or computer. A few headsets are coming out wireless. I see possibilities with RSYS. I agree with six, a pullback would be desirable. Any price before March 8th would be good. I understand it could move to $6, a 50% gain, but I feel it might hold around $4 for a bit. I need to check their client list.

    Trying again. Nope. Have posted it yet. Not a question anyway. I know posts older than 3 months don't move to the current board. Just trying to be cryptic. I have a friend who is huge with FCEL. Go to Facebook and look for Zei Mann. He and his group post FCEL facts and opinions. They went this route to avoid the slammers on the Yahoo boards. Tell Z I sent you.

    I can understand buying FCEL. I was actually a holder of it way back when. Sold a couple of years ago. And I think fuel cells will come into demand. The current problem, oil is pretty darn cheap. Even if the price has an increase it will still be cheap for the next couple of years. Fortunately more municipalities are converting their buses and city vehicles over to fuel cells in an attempt to head off oil prices down the road. The other problem, there are too few refueling stations to make owning a fuel cell practical for the consumer. But, that too is changing. I guess, like TSLA, it's a long term play. Updates us Six when news comes out.

    Dave, was it you with TSLA? I bought it at $238, watched it go up and then drop to the mid $140's. Yikes. I'm holding until hell freezes over. For me TSLA is a long play. Of course I'm glad it's nearly $220. That gigafactory needs to get open. An I read TSLA is now providing power storage walls in Hawaii.
