Thanks waveno, keep up the technical mumbo jumbo, since it would appear WYY will be a good stock to learn how the technical swing game is played, as the stock moves up over the months from the news that is expected to emerge from WYY.
It certainly relates to my wondering why lopo sold some back on Dec 16, at a high of 1.60 something. If lopo was able to figure to get back in at the recent low around 1.30, good job. (Or is it going low yet?) Now that short term 20% return would be worth flipping for, one would think, aye msj. Anyhow, it appears, WYY will be a stock to watch and learn from, even if just happily holding.
Thanks for a good thread and all the good inputters.
Well great nami, always happy to cheer up a fellow investor.
Again, as for the operation of the plants, their percent up time was just fine with me, and I am sure it will only get better.
RaftRiver was 99.95%, San Emidio was 94.7%, and Neal Hot Springs was 87.2%. Compared to other plants the overall average was pretty good, even with the Neal's problem... As for the problem, #$%$ happens, and from my perspective, not totally unexpected. Having been involved in the start-up many industrial processes and whole new plants, the problem they noted was typical. The contracting firm paid for the repairs, and I commented that it would have been nice if they paid for the lost MW, but that NEVER happens. Again.... NOT UNEXPECTED....and you can bet they pushed as hard as they could to get the repairs completed ASAP!!!
Sorry to continue to read you still have such concerns with the past Neal start-up problem and other old HTM problems. One can only assume, you have limited experience with large industrial processes, and the Start-Up of new systems and or plants, suggest you dig into the Start-ups other firms have had with other. If you need some help finding examples, let me know, I am sure I could easily find some for you.
Also as others have noted, move on then if you feel the whole thing is going to fall apart and HTM is gong to cave under the debt...... No sense holding onto a stock you have little hope of seeing the SP increase. If you can and are shorting the stock....suspect it can not go t much lower to make it worth the effort.
Looks like 5 more trading days for marko to get it right.. If not, I am sure the investors whole world is not going to fall apart, mine certainly won't.
Put on your old "Flood Flares" and be ready for the flood..... Will be interesting to see when they report on the new contract, and what they put in the PR.
A good read. Gives insight into the trivial stuff companies try, to get things their way.
Good point lopo.... is the 65 million just for the first year or the whole contract? Suspect it is just the first year, but it still would not come out to 600 million, unless there is a yearly increase for the remaining 4 years after the first year...
"The BPA, has a 1-year base period of performance, plus four 1-year options,"
Well, I think they explained much of the 2013 story, certainly a massaged version, but they seemed to spelled out the ups and downs. Certainly not as much as an investor would like, but from my view, the glass is half full, and thankfully, as of today, they will be around for another year to add to glass. Not saying the glass will ever overflow, but this is a just a small utility company with a few good operating machine cranking out practically CO2 free energy for 25-30 years...
What do you expect? A big move like a biotech company, when they finally get the FDA thumbs up.... Not going to happen, slow and steady wins the race... Hang around for a couple of years. Enjoy the company of fellow investors, and learn from nami, what a mistake you made buying shares. How the debt load is going to crumple the whole thing any day now, barely making it Q to Q.......
Also, there are about 8 more trading days... at least give marko the rest of the year....maybe it will make a biotech move and the glass will over flow.... think happy thought, think big.. and Happy Holidays.... :-)
Well, well, look who's here.....msj... Welcome aboard.....from my understanding, and from the rahrahing going on, the fire will get bigger .... Hopefully much better then that other stock...
Excellent lopo.... as always thanks for the heads-up..... So why would you sell 30%.. even if you did make a profit... could you not have waited for more? No big deal... just wondering out loud..... money is money....
Looking forward to the PR.... AH or tomorrow morning?
or whatever it is called when it is in your inatablog site... found it while looking for any update on WidePoint..
Good summary of what investor are waiting for
Should be an interesting couple of weeks for investor, giving us all a happy holiday.
"WidePoint - Time might Really Be on It's side"
Thanks for the heads-up ct.
Looking at the wunderground weather data for Vale, the temp has been trending below the average line most of Nov and on the record low line in Dec ..
Will be interesting to see how the operation team does on using the low ambient temp to increase KW output.... during this period of max cost per KW..
Thanks parto, a good one. First a fine SA article, highlighting the wonders of US Geothermal, and now an Award for the great job Dan did for nami and fellow investors, could life get any better. Sure could.
"Even in a challenging environment, our GEA Honors winners represent the best in a growing industry. These geothermal leaders are trailblazers and should be praised for the headway they're achieving for the entire sector," noted Geothermal Energy Association Executive Director Karl Gawell.
Technological Advancement: Awarded for developing a new, innovative or pioneering technology to further geothermal development.
"U.S. Geothermal's 22 MW Neal Hot Springs Geothermal Power Plant: Through a U.S. government program promoting the development of "Innovative Technology," U.S. Geothermal received financing for its Neal Hot Springs project in Vale, Oregon, to develop and build the first commercial, supercritical Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) binary power plant. TAS Energy designed, manufactured and installed the supercritical ORC binary power plant employing R134a, an organic working fluid that is non-toxic and non-flammable."
Interesting, and yahoo shows a 3 cent pop AH...
And why do you have to jump to the conclusion that is is bad, it is just as probable to be a good thing.. CT Order filings are not that uncommon.
Thanks for the heads up.....something to think about, and go snooping around for info...
jacek... just look at the SEC site....
Oh matt it was just a tease... too funny.....but thanks for reading the post.
I still say HTM is a buy, along with you and nami.... :-)
Hey msj, did you have a chance to look at WYY... whew some huge stuff going on... worth listening to the last two webcast... and if you go as far as listening to Q3 CC.... you will hear an old familiar voice.... he has been in WYY for years, and asks a question at the end of most Qs. He would know their product is something the world needs...
Sorry been busy wrenn. I have been to the Raft River site several times and to the NH before it was completed. Allen is correct, and hope you emailed them already. I am sure they would welcome interested students/investors, for educational purposes, but I would also guess just get some visitors way out there... :-)
Yes, I posted the job a couple months ago... a poster mentioned applying. It was out of the Boise Office, seemed like a good entry level position. Worth looking into, maybe they did not hire someone or could use another....
Also think your trust made a good stock purchase, of course.
Yep, finally had the time this evening to listen to this one and the one on Dec.4. Certainly one of the best webcast put on by Jim, and now I understand what all the hoopla is about. Very good stuff. Appears after years of development, delays, and economy down turns, Jim finally has WYY in the sweet spot, as far as Cloud Security goes.
Nice job Jim and Dan .... will be looking forward to the presentation on Dec 11.
Well, what else, it is a buying opportunity as matthewedward stated, and as nami appears to now be saying. Other then that, not much has changed the PR clarifies the filing action, as someone noted earlier.
msj, want a good cyber security stock, WYY, good recent rise, and nice pop today so far, but someone with your fippin flipping skills, might make a few bucks, and while playing with it, you might leave HTM alone for awhile....it will never get to marko's buck fifty at this rate....
Nice job WYY....Thanks for the effort... Investors are pleased as well.
WidePoint Enters into Global Master Services Agreement with Compass Group PLC
John Atkinson, Chief Sales and Marketing Office of WidePoint, said. "We are pleased to announce this new international agreement. It builds upon several years of U.S.-based performance supporting Compass, and expands our relationship by showcasing our abilities to support our global clients beyond the constraints and limitations of national boundaries."
Wow, it was just a quick comment to go with posting the news. I personally find it lazy, when people post info, and do not add any comments. Makes one wonder if they even read it. So I made a comment, sorry it wasn't more detailed and specific.
How about this? Thank you Mr. Obama for giving DOE the regulations that allowed HTM to get a cool free 7 million bucks. Just because US Geothermal's awesome method of generating power will result in slowing global warming, by a calculated rate of exactly 0.0000000000000021 per cent per year of operation. And I am sure, future generations will thank you as well, Mr Obama.
Mr Gilles, sorry but you do not get any credit for the effort, but would like to thank those minions that had the foresight to get the paper work processed and delivered to DOE on time.
Mr Gilles, you will get thanks when investors learn exactly what you spent the money on. If you are smart enough to pay down some bill, or forced to pay whatever, it will be good, since it will increase share holders equity. If the are a few millions left, for M&A stuff, cool, let investors know what you buy on the cheap.
As for the divies.....Gilles did not say No, but suggested it was down the road. It will happen, but don't hold your breath, it will be awhile, IMO. 2015-6 would be my guess for a penny or two, if not, oh well.
Geesss, some people..... it is just a YMB, nothing posted effects the share price. It a place to let it out and have fun with fellow HTM investors. Don't take everything so serious.
Nice job Gilles, an extra .07 cents per share.... think the SP will pop up to 51 cents? In time, for sure.
Now on to the M&A stuff.
The State of Oregon allows certain renewable energy project investments within the State of Oregon to qualify for the BETC. Our Neal Hot Springs project, recently constructed near Vale, Oregon, applied for and received formal approval from the State of Oregon for the maximum $10 million tax credit. Based on the statutes' guidelines, the company was able to monetize (sell) the tax credit for the sum of $7.4 million, and after paying certain transaction expenses, the project received approximately $7.0 million. In cooperation with the US Department of Energy, the project loan guarantor, 50% of the amount received will be used to fund additional project reserves, while the balance will be available for distribution to the project owners.
"The sale of our Oregon Tax Credit completes one of our last, outstanding open items for the Company. Our portion of the BETC funds will provide capital to help fund our future growth activities," said Dennis Gilles, Chief Executive Officer of U.S. Geothermal.
Well nami, there you go, writing something I agree with. There is no need for HTM to do a RS, and they made it clear in the CC, they will not. An RS is rarely good for the long term investor who hung in there through bad times, and this investor can wait for the real thing. Instead of a phony RS, done primarily to entice "big" investors, which most needs 5 bucks, as you mentioned.
And yes the fundamentals, will get better, and the SP will get past a buck. In fact, a buck fifty by end of Dec, according to your friend.
Also, there is only around 100 million shares OS, that is a good number for this company, IMO. Imagine if there was only 10 or 20 or even 50 million, the mischief the manipulators could create, every day.
