GE used to wonw quite a bit of Orion. When the s%$# hit the fan for their finance unit they sold off not to long after that. I wonder now that they are more concentrated on manufacturing and less on finance if they would look at Orion again.?
Energy consumption is not a new issue for the marijuana industry, but it has fallen firmly under the spotlight with 23 states now legalizing pot in some form, including Washington, Colorado, Alaska, Oregon (legal later in 2015) and now Washington, D.C. allowing recreational marijuana use. The cannabis industry investment and research firm ArcView Group says that legal marijuana is the fastest growing industry in the U.S., expanding 74% last year to $2.7 billion. Already commanding a large energy draw (up to 1/3 of total energy use by a commercial grower and 1% of total electricity in the U.S.), the more marijuana being consumed, the greater the electricity demand, exacerbating the problem. As discussed in a 2011 report (updated in 2012) by energy and environmental systems analyst Evans Mills, PhD, “cannabis production results in energy expenditures of $6 billion each year--6-times that of the entire U.S. pharmaceutical industry--with electricity use equivalent to that of 2 million average U.S. homes.”
Heliospectra is a plant research sciences company founded in Sweden in 2006 to provide cutting-edge LED lighting solutions for researchers, greenhouse growers and agrotech companies. Heliospectra products are far more than just an energy efficient light; they are patented biofeedback systems of intelligent, LED-based lighting that reduces heat, cuts electricity use by 50% and include software to provide the highest level of control. They are the product of years of R&D built upon Heliospectra’s deep knowledge of plant physiology and photosynthesis, in short, “what plants want.” Employing the system means users can remotely configure and monitor functions of individual lamps, including varying light across the spectrum to influence grow patterns, effectively speeding them up or slowing them down in a demonstration of the ultimate control of a cultivation environment.
Hard to get excited about 17K shares traded - but that is more than this stock has traded in quite a while. - maybe some interest starting to show up - too bad at such a low price....
It would make a significant difference in the number of shares left in the float - granted total value is not effected. the total number of shares in the float could affect the average volume and liquidity of trading. - It's a pretty small cap / micro cap stock now. - Having only 2 MM shares would probably make trading very thin and less liquid. - But it could make it possible for small funds to buy in if the share price got over $5 .....(If)
It would seem that their is some value to be unleashed here. What is holding these guys back from making money and having the stock turn into a five bagger?
You may be on to something - I believe there is some Alibaba money behind MOMO - - There will soon be much more Alibaba money floating around after their first lock up expires. - With the relatively small market cap of DATE it would be a nice pick-up. - A good place to start building out a platform. - I agree $8 or more will have to be the price. - I would say $9 to $10 is possible. (much of the deal can be financed with DATES own cash)
DRYS vs SB - which one would you buy right now? Why? - Which of these would you be selling now? - Why? -and finally do you see any consolidation in the shipping market soon -like what happened in the airline and railroad industries over the past 5-10 years?
You are right. Very hard to have perfect timing. - Look for a value that you good about and pull the trigger. - works both on the way up and down. -
