Just looked up their website at theoceancleanup and found a team using crowd funding to finance their ideas. I'm not sure that will work here but you are right; they might make a good advocate for PHA.
But I bought them back a few minutes ago (at a great discount) after I realized that this is really and eighty dollar stock trading near fifty... Global warming have created great conditions for going green and going solar. I'm enjoying solar right now with my house and many of my neighbors are considering it too... IMHO, there are few better opportunities than Solar City; time will tell if I'm right :)
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Google search are still showing RetailMeNot near the top of many coupon searches but should have zero impact on anyone who's using the RetailMeNot app!!! Clearly the 35% quote came from a short seller...
Before the end of the month this will be added to an index that hundreds of ETFs are based on (do your homework!!!)
The load up could and should happen before next Friday so they will want the price as low as possible before then so they can load up. Some are probably ready now, others may wait another day or two, but buyers are coming and it could be a very big problem for shorts.
Guys, this is a short term play as buying will happen soon but it won't hurt the long term... Those who pick up and of hundreds of funds will be adding Twitter to their holdings:
"The MSCI Global Equity Indexes are widely tracked global equity benchmarks and serve as the basis for over 650 exchanged traded funds* throughout the world. "
Sentiment: Strong Buy
MSCI indexes... How does that relate to Twitter? Read on...
Reuters – Wed May 14, 2014
Equity index provider MSCI reclassified equities across a broad spectrum of markets on Wednesday as part of its semi-annual review, adding among others U.S. social networking company Twitter Inc (TWTR.N) to its world index…
About $8 trillion is benchmarked to MSCI indexes. The emerging markets index .MSCIEF is up 2.9 percent so far this year, while the all world index has risen 2.1 percent.
Twitter is one of the biggest additions to the MSCI All World index .MIWD00000PUS, which will add 58 companies and eliminate 45 at the end of May…
All changes will be implemented as of the close on May 30.
I'd like to see financing come in that isn't 15% below today's price but investors be darned, we've seen or heard nothing that gives us hope... This company has great technology and terrific IP but they just can't seem to market it... Come on folks! It's time to make a deal! Sell the company for four or five dollars per share and let someone else figure out how to make profits where you couldn't!!!
The Motley Fool seems to have your number and it comes right off the top of mine...
Digging deeply into Groupon's financial reports reveals a disturbing trend over the past few years. Groupon booked $93 million in stock-based compensation charges in 2011. Stock compensation then jumped 11% in 2012, and another 17% to $121 million last year. Put simply, Groupon is using vast amounts of shareholder money to enrich its employees through lucrative stock-based compensation awards.
I wanted to buy more Groupon shares but until they give me a 50% off coupon for 5 cents I'm not buying
IMHO, this appears to be good news yet explains why things are taking so long:
we are working with the prospective buyer and have had negotiations relating to a transaction involving the sale of the U.S. business in a tax efficient matter. However, these negotiations are dependent in part on the satisfactory resolution of the previously announced Department of Justice and Office of Inspector General Investigations.
The ultimate resolution of these investigations will include an agreement between Extendicare and the OIG involving certain monitoring and oversight responsibilities, some of which may pertain to any buyer of the U.S. business going forward. For this reason, knowing the outcome of these matters has been a pre-condition in the negotiations.
If the investigations can be resolved in an acceptable manner to us and the perspective buyer, we expect that the separation of the businesses will be affected by way of a sale of the U.S. business. If not, we will nevertheless proceed to separate the Canadian and U.S. businesses, utilizing one of several alternative techniques that are being considered and analyzed by the strategic committee. The status quo is not an option.
FYI, the September $12 call options are currently selling for only a 0.5% time premium. Apparently someone doesn't expect this to go up between now and then. Hopefully they are wrong. Regardless, if you are thinking of buying shares and would like to delay the bulk of the purchase that might be a good way to go.
I need some cash for other investments so I'm selling some DNR Sept 12 for basically cost (near zero time premium)... If you are buying today you may wish to push $12 of your investment to a later day and pick these up. If not, no big...
For a little while today it looked like there were more buyers than sellers, but
in the last few minutes someone dumped over 50k shares. All the way down to $0.81
I've read that if you want to buy shares here, on any given day, then you should wait until the last two minutes. Apparently, it's true!
It's weird to watch computers work... Ask demand were about equal at 17.3 to 17.31 when I offered up my Sept calls are zero premium... In order to ensure that the computers didn't get out done thousands of shares dropped to 17.3 within the quarter second before my offer appeared... Dam high frequency trading has way too much control on the market. Computers won't be satisfied unless they are buying everything at a discount and in most cases they do... Still a great deal for anyone who wants to delay the bulk of their purchase until September; or simply to push out a near tear call for several months.
