always hoping for a greater IR effort.
1. home page added SEE ALL COMPANY NEWS
2. You can look at all news without having to select each month, it's a start. Listing just headlines next? Then maybe seperating "news" ........?
they have some of the same desalination customers
ZBB mentioned china at their FEB 15 Q2 REPORT/CC, stock i believe went down, the stock jumped march 4th, day after TESLA announced plans for their $1.5bill battery factory.
Your're quite the pumper dumper.
listen to last CC, maybe 1 analyst, rest of questions by not so happy private shareholders.
admittedly CEO is a good speaker, lots of enthusiasm about their partners and "pilot" installs but read the 10q
read their 10q, no guidance, not even giving a pipeline. the china/korea news is old news.
what has changed since then? nothing except pump/dump fueled by PLUG and TESLA.
nuttin disruptive by ZBB FLOW batteries, not like solar or fuel cells with generous govt tax credits.
just another struggling battery company imho. korean partner seems to be keeping them afloat but has agreement to mfg/sell batteries in korea with very little $ going to zbb.
this ain't like PLUG with has very little competition in their market. there are many other zinc flow battery companies, all kinds of other storage batteries and storage technologies, zbb jus happens to be public.
but not sure if any of this matters right now, go with the FLOW
my interpretation is the 3 creditors just wanted to let the public know they are on the same page, as far as i can tell THEY ARE TMEN, they hold the purse strings. i am curious why they are making this public.
people are making money on zbb and they know nothing about storage batteries and don't care.
the big shareholders fighting? the fact that they filed this action with the SEC shows they are still filing and possibly nothing else of substance has occurred otherwise they would have filed a 8k about it
LOL, zbb sells fuel cells? PLUG has potentially every battery powered forklift as a sale. And PLUG can even sell the customer H2! No middlemen.
How much does ZBB make on a korean battery sale when one ever occurs?
Not saying one day they won't have hundreds of millions in sales but unlike PLUG, market for large stationary batteries isn't going to be in 2014 imho..
they ought to leverage their years of selling to foreign countries which is impressive for a small company by selling consulting services starting with the other 2 companies mentioned in that article.
the article was on feb 26th.
kind of surprised sotk got mentioned in WSJ, lots of companies to choose from on the topic of small companies selling to foreign markets. certainly nothing in the article to get investors very excited but might attract potential customers. hopefully there will be more articles, IR effort.
wouldn't mind it if they improved IR a little, for example setup their NEWS so you just could skim the headlines rather than have to scroll thru each article, kind of what every other company does AND make the news display continuous rather than having to pick each month, not exactly investor friendly and who is the new for anyway, maybe INVESTORS? AND have separate pages for P.R.s, articles and company generated "info".
Not to be nitpicky but if someone did go over to the sotk website based on that article, what's the first thing they might notice? copyright 2011 on the homepage and 2014 on every other page. a prospective investor or customer might wonder how up to date everything is on their website seeing that 2011 date.
they at least are putting out current "NEWS" on twitter and facebook
finally, on their CONTACT section, they need a separate INVESTOR COMMENT page rather than lump it into the GENERAL CONTACT page.
would these changes make any difference in the share price or attract/keep investors? dunno but worth a try imho.
riding on tesla's/musk's coattails?
will big storage batteries be needed if we get this huge increase in EV's and solar or will TESLA sell home storage? everyone can't be recharging at night.
why would AIRBUS need a unit propulsion software? has airbus been working with HYGS for 7 years when this pr was written? not exactly sure but interesting, i assumed a forklift vendor or similar.

you make money trading most struggling a..e. companies. most will go under. sometimes you get lucky by holding, look at PLUG, QTWW, SCTY, HYGS, SUNE, SPWR, FSLR, not a pure play storage/microgrid company in the list. why? no govt subsidies, utilities take forever to adapt new technology and loads of competition, and not just from batteries, storage even competes against more efficient motors, load shifting software, more efficient lighting! no barrier to entry, you can develop a new battery it seems everyday. plus evaluating batteries, how do you decide as a buyer? with solar, you make money eventually even if you don't buy the best panel. if the company goes under, the panels will still likely work for 20 years. batteries are a total' unknown.
moose hyped this stock day in, day out, not sure if he was just pretending to be long and was trading or was long because he heard voices.
you can find great investments that make a profit, just find great ceos, you invest in the captain, not the ship.
2 examples, DXPE, SLP
i think CPST might be in that group, one has to hope though they get cash positive ASAP, makes everything easier to have extra cash on hand.
