I am curious how many longs on this board that invested in SPWR and SCTY, but do not own solar system for their house.
That is the main reason why SCTY got dumped huge today. It doesn't matter if SCTY beat tiny beat or meet, it is about the forward looking. SCTY and SPWR have high borrowing cost and high debt, they rely on strong revenue turn over to pay for their interest loans. Do your math and you will know how scary it is to invest your money in these solar companies that carry such high debt and low revenue. As much as the good news from the government for the rebate program, they still need customers to step up giving them the business in order to claim the rebate. Consumers are playing waiting game and standing on the side line when the oil is so cheap today.
The tightening up of all loans will make those companies who have high borrowing costs struggle even much more.
Mark this post.
My first trade of SPWR was back in 2013 at $15 dollar a share. I sold at $18 based on most solar companies in the industry carry high debt, high inventories and none sufficient operation margin. With the price of oil so cheap, it gives even much incentive for the consumers to want to spend the money to install solar. Great risk ahead.
With the solar panel inventories are flooded in the market and don't have enough customer demands, all the solar companies facing huge risk ahead. Huge caution ahead.
It was over $13 just as I wished as a gift for the Chinese New Year nearly $14. I guess it is tough to fight the market situation, but I have full faith that it will recover and re test again very soon.

Like I said, my TD broker shorted CMG, he has the right idea. A burrito stock at this level is still way too expensive to invest.
Honestly speaking, I am not a big fan of Costco. I picked up a chopping board to take a look and the whole pile of boards just came tumbling down on me and hit my leg. I had a swollen big black bruise less than a few minutes on my leg. My husband was so mad and talked to the store manager. They gave me an ice pack after filling up the form and sent me away. One of my friend got his van to service at Costco and had all the tires changed to new ones before his trip to LA. One of the new tire flew off on the freeway during the driving almost created a big crash on the freeway when there were total 7 passengers in the van. Costco gave my friend zero compensation like they did to me, but only an apology to tell my friend that the new tire was not put on tight and got loose. Costco really is the most irresponsible store I ever shop out there with the worst customer service and store safety for their customers. Above all that, I do agree that customers need to be careful with the food they purchase at the stores and check the expiration dates. and freshness.
I want to learn to draw and paint and I found going through Groupon's offers are the best options for me ever instead of signing up monthly membership with outrageous tuitions..
She loves the travelling packages offer through Groupon and plan to purchase another package to Japan for her honeymoon. She is a scientist at Stanford and had never used Groupon until 6 months ago when I told her how great Groupon is. She and my son both love using Groupon due to great discounts and great quality offers. As a retired person with 3 dogs, I love Groupon local trips offer. Great 4 star hotel at the great price. not to mention many great restaurants at the great discounts as well. I enjoy Groupon does all the researches to provide customers great deals and great products. Groupon is the only ads that I don't delete when I delete almost every other. I have purchased so many things that I never plan to buy, but was glad to buy when I see them through Groupon.
just read your post and do agree with your input. I think the insiders have been selling the stock at $540 level says a lot about they believe at $540 is a good time to bail.. Thank you for sharing your feedback.
I can't bring myself to buy ISRG at $380 and looking at its stock price today, I think it is overpriced and way too expensive to invest when many hospitals have been going out of business and under serious budget cut. Serious feed back please about the right price to invest in this stock. Thanks.
One other observation is insiders don't believe in holding this stock at more than $540 level. There are a large amount of shares sold around $540 level when the stock itself is traded in very low volume.
I am a big supporter for any great medical technologies, but I have a question about the growth and business by ISRG. As the industry is focus on cutting cost both on doctor salaries, insurance and liability. How the product by ISRG is helping the industry by their machines? Is the company justified by its current stock price? I have been watching ISRG stock since $380 and never was able to bring myself to pull the trigger to invest the stock because personally thinking I think the stock is way overpriced based on the industry growth, budget cost cut by all hospitals and insurance approval by using ISRG products, liability and so on. I would like to get serious input from the long time serious traders from this board to tell me their serious and honest opinion about investing ISRG please. Thanks.
CMG is betting on Mexican food to be popular in Asia. I think they have a chance in India, but truly doubt they will be successful in China, Taiwan, Singapore, Thailand, Japan and so on. To bet on burritos that made in organic materials in Asia based on the risk of food quality control, margin and popularity is a very big gamble.
jar, thank you very much for your diligent research and sharing with us on this board. Some people bashed and laughed at me that I was too foolish to get in HIMX at low $14 and again added more at low $10. I got in based on many strong recommendation by the analysts and the news that Google has invested in 7% in the firm. I have been holding HIMX for over 2 years now. It will be a long journey for me. I hope HIMX will not let me down in the end. Please keep up your DD with us. Thank you.
HIMX was nearly $9 when it beat its earning last quarter. The stock would have been $10 if they beat earning again this quarter. The manipulation by MM is keeping the stock down for longer time than it deserves to. I got in at mid $14 when I was in Hawaii in 2013 based on a strong recommendation by my broker with the news that Google invested 7% in the company. I have added 50,000 shares more at low $10. Totally nearly 100,000 shares I have for the last two years. Keeping my patience and my courage. I am holding this for the next 25 years as my retirement.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I attended CES show and I see drones everywhere. China also displays its very interesting drone at the show. Golf sport is getting into partnership with Go Pro camera. Patience and courage will reward you huge if you get all in GPRO now at $10! GPRO stock will triple at least by the end of the year.
