Sorry buddy solar energy is already cheaper than coal. The difference between solar and coal is solar gets cheaper and easier every day! Coal just gets worse:)
Should also be adding north of 50,000 items a month! Crazy you can add shares for 2/3 times sales, I have a feeling I might never have to pay capital gain taxes again.:) LITB has done an AMAZING JOB ON THEIR FLASH SALES SITE! Flash sales now have AWESOME merchandise! LOW PRICES and actually selling out of some items! Fingers Crossed!:)
Scientists at MIT and Harvard University have devised a way to store solar energy in molecules that can then be tapped to heat homes, water or used for cooking.
The best part: The molecules can store the heat forever and be endlessly re-used while emitting absolutely no greenhouse gases. Scientists remain a way’s off in building this perpetual heat machine but they have succeeded in the laboratory at demonstrating the viability of the phenomenon called photoswitching.
The Earth LOVES MIT!:) BTU not so much!:)
Soon the U. S. will be 100% renewables.:) Coal fired plants will shut down first, the next to go will be natural gas soon followed by the last nuclear plant closing!:)
According to the Ontario Ministry of Energy, this means the province has fulfilled its commitment to close all of its coal plants in advance of its year-end 2014 target. Ontario has replaced coal with a mix of emission-free electricity sources like wind, solar, nuclear and hydropower, along with lower-emission electricity sources like natural gas and biomass.
Last year, Ontario also introduced the Ending Coal for Cleaner Air Act, which the ministry says would ensure coal-fired generation as a source of electricity in the province never happens again. Citing a 2005 independent study, the ministry says the estimated cost of coal generation was approximately $4.4 billion annually when health, environmental, and financial costs were taken into consideration.
When Duke Energy is throwing in the towel on coal it's over for you!:)
Solar energy installed on roof tops will shut down every coal fired plant out west in next five years and this plague of solar power will infect every state in the next 9 years!:) Gregory Boyce will a lot unmined clean coal he can bath in!:) LOL!!!!
This is an INSANE number because INVESTMENT in renewables actually fell by 14% last year! Solar prices are falling so fast INVESTMENTS can not KEEP UP! Solar ENERGY USE about to EXPLODE to 100% and SOON!!!!!!!!!! COAL is DOOMED!:) READ THIS! Solar power generating capacity worldwide increased 26 percent in 2013 over the previous year, from 31 gigawatts in 2012 to 39 gigawatts in 2013 despite total investment in solar falling 23 percent from $135.6 billion to about $104 billion, according to the report!!!!! If the same amount of money was invested capacity would have been high enough to close another 20 coal fired plants!:):)
The future of online retailing is going to be mobile, lightinthebox adding 40,000 new items added a month! This online sales platform is going to worth a friken ton of money someday!:)
Could have 500 million users worldwide in a few years!:)
Mobile apps growing over 1% a day! going to pay off someday!:) just not today:)

Let's focus on the Mobile part of LITB. In OCT. 2013 LITB relaunched the iphone lightinthebox app and it started gaining traction. It was not until NOV. 2013 midway through Q4 that LITB launched the miniinthebox mobile app for the iphone. LITB also announced in the Q4 earnings call on 11/19/2013 that would release a lightinthebox app in Q4, so later than November 19th and before December 31st and lightinthebox app for the ipad in Q1 in 2014. itunes does not release any download information for apps but we do now in Q4 LITB announced on their earnings call that mobile sales increase 300% in Q4, December quarter and this was before the Android app would have had time to gain traction. So in Q1 you basically have 3 to 4 months of downloads of 4 new Apps for the iphone and Android platform. Downloads for the Android Lightinthebox app passed 100,000 a week ago and downloads are about 1% a day of that total or 1000, the Android miniinthebox app is being downloaded 4.5X faster or around 4500 a day. So basically there are 500,000 more Android mobile apps that were not present in Q4. I have to assume that LITB went with the iphone phone app first because it would have a faster download rate but let's assume for now that they are egual to Android, LITB has now added one Million mobile apps and this SHOULD BE AWESOME!
SOMETHING else that I noticed is that on Android when you add miniinthebox and lightinthebox mobile downloads together you see that they are being downloaded 3X faster than Zulily mobile app! Zulily had a tough week but they still have a market cap of 5.84 Billion Dollars 20 times higher than LITB. This makes no sense if this mobile download data holds up!:)
This is once in lifetime buy! It will change lives!:) $2000 in 5 years!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)
There are so many way LITB can accelerate this growth rate! First they could add a mobile apps link to their 3 Facebook pages, 2nd they could add mobile apps link to their website, third they could advertise they have mobile apps, forth they could add incentives to use their mobile app! But even if they do none of these obvious suggestions they will still have OVER 5.5 million mobile apps out there generating 40$ every quarter! So in 21 months just the Android App will be adding 220 million to the top line! that would put LITB box revenues north of 1.2 billion for the year or 4X higher than they are today!:) Where do you think LITB stock price will be with 100% YOY growth? YEP pretty fricking high!:)
Investing in solar energy stocks is one thing that everyone who love humans and the plant can do to stop global warming and get an amazing return for their concern!:)
Solar companies to save the Earth!:)
Possibilities are endless with Drones!:)
average sale per customer in quarter is around 40$ those apps should produce around 110 million in revenues! looking for over 200 million in Revenues in Q4 2014! The 2.75 million does not include itune downloads!:) LITB is going to explode higher sometime in 2014, we just don't know when!:)
Clean coal plant to supply power to only 180,000 homes a 582 megawatt solar plant supplies power to 255,000 homes!:)
