    HERES THE PAID PUMPERS HANDBOOK, A MUST READ

    The disturbing last cpst dilution negates all the possible angles of positivity for cpst future in my mind. In addition, the last cpst pumpers hurrah emphesises the concern. IMO, cpst downside movement on steadily increasing volume points to the raising alarm in all retail cpst holders.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Capstone Turbine Downgraded to Strong Sell
    By Zacks Equity Research June 16, 2014 12:20 PM Zacks Investment Research downgraded Capstone Turbine Corp. (CPST) to a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) on Jun 13, 2014. Going by the Zacks model, companies holding a Zacks Rank #5 have strong chances of performing worse than the broader market.

    Why the Downgrade?

    Share price of Capstone Turbine slipped 1.9% after the release of fiscal fourth-quarter 2014 (ended Mar 31, 2014) results on Jun 12. The company reported loss of one cent per share, flat compared with the previous quarter. Also, the bottom-line result was in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate.

    Revenues generated were $36.4 million, down 2% from the previous quarter and below the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $39.0 million. Costs of sales increased 2.1% sequentially; leading to an approximate 16.2% fall in gross profit with margin going down by 300 basis points to 17.0%. Research and development expenses rose 9%.

    Lackluster quarterly results triggered downward revision in earnings estimate for Capstone Turbine. Over the last seven days, the Zacks Consensus Estimate remained stable at a break-even level for fiscal 2015, while for fiscal 2016 it declined 14.3% to 6 cents per share.

    Lowered estimates coupled with an average negative earnings surprise of 100% have made us doubtful about Capstone Turbine’s performance in the quarters ahead. Currently, the company has an Earnings ESP of -16.7% for fiscal 2016.

    Cpst buyers will do best to ignore cpst boiler plate, and buy cpst (recommended) "If we are unable to either substantially improve our operating results or obtain additional financing, we may be unable to continue as a going concern.
    Should we be unable to execute our plans to build sales and margins while controlling costs, we may be unable to continue as a going concern on a longer term basis. In particular, we must generate positive cash flow from operations and net income and otherwise improve our results of operations substantially on a longer term basis. Our available cash and proceeds from future financings, if any, that we may be able to obtain, may not be sufficient to fund our operating expenses, capital expenditures and other cash requirements. Any such lack of funds would affect our ability to continue as a going concern. These events and circumstances could have a material adverse effect on our ability to raise additional capital and on the market value of our common stock and our ability to maintain a credit facility acceptable to the Company. Moreover, should we experience a cash shortage that requires us to curtail or cease our operations, or should we be unable to continue as a going concern, you could lose all or part of your investments in our securities.

    That amounts to cpst selling itself short by proxy. -"I'm willing to bet they never owned the shares. As it usually happens, they likely shorted the shares first, then the company made the deal with them at a below-market price (I think it was $1.70/share). They handed over the money, and the company handed over the shares - which they used to cover their short. Win-win for both the company and their buddies who put up the money. And the small investor? Screwed as usual. Welcome to Wall Street, where it is business as usual." Why not?

    Capstone Turbine Corporation Reports Another Disappointing Loss By Travis Hoium June 12, 2014
    Capstone Turbine Corporation (NASDAQ: CPST ) reported fourth-quarter and fiscal-2014 results after the market closed, and they did little to impress the market. Fourth-quarter revenue was up just 3% from a year ago, to $36.4 million, and lost $3.4 million, or $0.01 per share, 50% more than a year ago.

    With 310 million shares outstanding, it wasn't hard to hit Wall Street's estimate on the mark, but revenue fell below the $38.9 million estimate.

    What's concerning is that there appears to be no end to losses and, as a result, management must continually raise new money and dilute shareholders. For the full year, Capstone lost $16.0 million, down from $22.6 million a year ago, but it had to sell 18.8 million shares last month just to keep operations going for the rest of the year.

    Capstone has been a stock with a lot of potential for years now, but never seems to live up to that potential. Until the company swings to a profit, I'll stay away and not get caught in a trap that continues to disappoint investors year after year.
