  • I've managed to make a list of the ratings I believe FireFall will have, plus reasons and examples for the rating.

    All I can tell you for sure is the rating will be T.

    Ratings I'm pretty sure it will have:
    Violence
    Animated Blood/Blood (When you hit Chosen, other players, and bugs)
    Mild Suggestive Themes/Suggestive Themes or Content (Fem Assault/Engie frame)
    Mild Language or Language

    Ratings I'm not sure about:
    Alcohol Reference (Wicky Wacker?)
    Crude Humor (Not sure of a good example)

    Also, I was thinking maybe red5: will wait until they get a rating before launching the official game. Let me know if you think this list is complete, or if I need to add or remove something.

    So the fact that P/S is 40 is not a problem? And severe competition with SPWR is not a problems?

    The value of his 4900 shares purchase is $109270. This is big money! The fact that he paid 109270 from his pocket indicates that he thinks this stock is very unvalued

    any rational response? Am I wrong?

  • 7 Smart Reasons Why CEO sold 76725 shares.

    1) This is because he knows some bad news is coming this week
    2) He know that at P/S of 40 , SCTY is very overvalued vs. P/S of 3 for SPWR
    3) He knows that SCTY has accounting problems related to accounting of leasing solar panels
    4) He knows about the accounting problems because they are indicated in the 10Q of SCTY
    5) He knows that as a manufacturer of solar panels the gross margin will be reduced soon
    6) He knows that every local installer with very overhead is competing with SCTY
    7) He know that SCTY is competing with a better company SPWR which has better efficiency of SPWR solar panels (24$ vs. 15%)

  • "TheStreet Quant Ratings rates SolarCity as a sell. The company's weaknesses can be seen in multiple areas, such as its poor profit margins, weak operating cash flow, generally high debt management risk and feeble growth in its earnings per share.

    Highlights from the ratings report include:

    The gross profit margin for SOLARCITY CORP is rather low; currently it is at 23.27%. It has decreased from the same quarter the previous year. Along with this, the net profit margin of -37.86% is significantly below that of the industry average.
    Net operating cash flow has significantly decreased to -$23.31 million or 361.94% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, when comparing to the industry average, the firm's growth rate is much lower."

  • DJ Solar Firms Sue Arizona over Property Taxes - CNBC

    Jul 01, 2014 15:38:00 (ET)

    15:38 EDT - SolarCity (SCTY) and Sunrun are suing Arizona over property taxes. State says the companies owe taxes for solar panels installed on homes and businesses that the companies own and lease to property owners. Solar equipment owned by a home- or business-owner is exempt from the property tax, and the solar companies say they too should qualify for the exemption. Their lawsuit, filed Monday, is the latest feud in a wider struggle between solar companies that want to expand in Arizona and other states, and state authorities trying to limit that expansion. SolarCity and Sunrun say customers who lease equipment would have to pay extra Arizona property taxes over the 15- to 20-year leases they signed, unless the state backs down. SCTY shares up 1% at $71.32.

    Musk suggested to name the first electric rocket to Mars , model M . He intends to use the same lithium batteries that he makes in Gigafactory.

  • 1) RDEN hired Goldman Sachs to explore a sale and Goldman is constantly reaching out to a small group of potential buyers. Shorts should not bet against the powerful Goldman

    2) According to RDEN, the cost cutting measures will bolster long-term gross margins and profitability and are part of its turnaround plan that calls for $40 million and $50 million in annual savings.

    3) According to Golaman analyst, RDEN’s New CFO appears to be moving fast to execute a turnaround. Little, The new CFO is ex CFO of the giant company Procter & Gamble

    4) Aside from LG, The Deal Magazine previously reported that New York-based makeup giant Coty is negotiating with RDEN and could be a potential suitor.

    5) BMO analyst & dealReporter's estimate price of $1.48 billion for a potential deal at 18.6x EV/EBITDA on a TTM basis

    6) LG statement that it is no longer interested in acquisition of RDEN does not affect RDEN to find another company to takeover RDEN with possibly 50% premium

    7) RDEN is trading at half its book value. At this market cap there is a very good possibility of a buyout by one of the much heavier competitors in US , Europe or China

    8) RDEN's continuing strategic alternatives evaluation will help to takeover deal that will be much higher than current tiny market cap of $630M

    9) The restructuring and cost savings program announced earlier this week is a very positive and could create growth and turnaround even without any takeover deal

    10) The recent 40% meltdown is not justified . Wall Street likes to screw as many people as they can to sell their shares in cheap so the Street can scoop up the cheap shares and resell them at a huge profit once they decide to reverse course and push the stock up.

    Battery failure and wiring fault were the causes of a fire on board an unoccupied Boeing 787 Dreamliner at Heathrow Airport, London, in July 2013, according to investigators at Britain's Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB). It follows the grounding all 787s for a period in their first year of operation over battery problems.

  • FAA urged to tighten standards for lithium batteries in aircraft

    A short-circuit in a lithium-metal battery likely caused the fire that damaged an Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 787-8 last year and certification requirements must be improved, the UK Air Accident Investigation Branch (AAIB) says in a new special bulletin.

    The fire at London Heathrow airport on 12 July 2013 was probably the result of a botched electrical installation of the aircraft’s emergency locator transmitter (ELT) - the Honeywell Rescu 406AFN . This led to short-circuiting, causing its battery to overheat and start a process known as thermal runaway, which generates intense heat.

    The fire spread in the aircraft’s rear upper fuselage while the aircraft was empty and unattended until the fire crews arrived, causing extensive damage to the 787’s composite materials hull.

    The AAIB explained this ELT is powered by a five-cell lithium-metal (not lithium-ion) battery, and describes what it found: “The internal battery pack had experienced severe disruption, exhibiting evidence of a very high-energy thermal event, consistent with having a thermal runaway. All five cell cases had been breached and burnt material had been ejected into the battery compartment and outside of the ELT case.”

    Evidence of the improper installation of the ELT is described in the report: “Significantly, the ELT battery wires were found…crossed and pinched together between the battery cover-plate and the ELT case…the cover plate was noticeably bulged in this location as the wires prevented it from sitting flush against the ELT case.”

  • A director of a corporation and CEO are fiduciary to the shareholders. They have a duty of loyalty, which means they must not place their interest above that of the shareholders. A director must act in good faith, which means he must act in accordance with his fiduciary duties. The duty of care requires a director to act on an informed basis when voting to implement corporate action. If a director breaches his duties, he is subject to personal liability.

    Form a private equity standpoint, selling Heald and Wyotech makes sense. This capital could be used to satisfy debt and wind down Corninthian. The smaller colleges could then operate away from the tarnished brand, ensuring some longer-term viability
