    The approval of more LNG export terminals translates into more U.S. natural gas production. This scenario means more business for Capstone turbines as natural gas production is ramped up.

    Huge Business on the Horizon

    The development of LNG plants is testimony to the growing demand of natural gas in both the utility and transportation sectors. Their exists enough natural gas in the U.S. to provide all power needs for several hundred years. Its was recently discovered that Argentina alone could provide the energy needs for the U.S. with its huge natural gas reserves. Iran has more natural gas than anyplace in the world. The world is awash with humongous supplies of natural gas. The pump price is not directly correlated with commodity natural gas, because a large part of the price is for ancillary costs such as transportation and storage. WPRT has the right business model to capitalize on the growing demand for natural gas in the transportation sector, because natural gas is so abundant and cheaper than dirty diesel.

    Clean Energy Fuels just created a joint partnership with Mansfield Energy Corp., the largest bulk hauler of transportation fuels. Mansfield is using Westport engines and the partnership is expected to greatly increase the number of fueling stations throughout the U.S. It looks like Westport will be ramping up production. The Clean Energy and Mansfield partnership is testimony to the increase in fueling infrastructure that will greatly enhance natural gas adoption.

    The upcoming restart of reactors in Japan is good news, but more importantly many uranium mining companies are refusing to sell a lower prices and are asking for higher prices to make a profit.

    Besides the restart of Japanese reactors, one of the largest impacts on the uranium price is that miners are refusing to accept lower prices for uranium.

    Kenan Advantage Group is America's largest tank transporter. Last year, KAG ordered 24 Westport engines for it long haul trucks. The company is so pleased with the performance that it is now going to double the number of trucks. Most of the trucks deliver LNG fuel for Clean Energy and the company is very pleased with their relationship with Clean Energy and look forward to expanded business. What investors should gleam from this recent news is that most companies are very satisfied with WPRT engines and the conversion from diesel to both CNG and LNG is rising. This salient fact is showing that the business for WPRT is robust and expanding.

    Ignorance...all round

    Although, I have urged posters numerous times to maintain cash accounts, I also recognize that short positions do not affect the long term price movement of stocks. However, they do cause machinations in the short term with spurious reports being circulated to influence stock trading. The best aspect of a cash account is that it forces investors to not gamble on money they do not have, which margin accounts allow. Cash accounts serve 2 purposes: curtail stock gyrations and help patient investors. Under financed traders will usually make less money than those who buy, accumulate on declines, and patiently hold until the economics of the stock reach fruition. WPRT has disruptive technology and will do very well.

    Thanks Drew for an informative post. We need more sensible posters like yourself on this board. What most are leaving out of the equation is the time line for marketability of WPRT technologies. The transition to natural gas vehicles is gaining momentum, but it takes time for the fueling infrastructure be built. Although, WPRT has the best natural gas engines in the world, their sales will be impacted by the fueling infrastructure. What is now happening is that the build out of infrastructure is also gaining momentum and companies are feeling more comfortable making the transition to natural gas vehicles. What is going to surprise most is that the small wave forming in the ocean is going to turn into a tsunami of macroeconomic change in the transportation sector. Most will be kicking themselves for not buying WPRT at these bargain prices.

    Westport also makes engines or can easily refit engines to run on hydrogen gas. This fact is seldom mentioned.

    CLNE is an emerging company that has to build out the infrastructure so as to be economically feasible. Blaming management by making emotional statements not based on facts is not very fruitful. Use the bargain level prices to accumulate, hold, and be patient.

    On Sept. 21, there will be a climate change march in New York prior to the major U.N. meeting on climate change. The marches will also be happening in other global cities. These marches will likely go down in history as the turning point when the ostriches begin to wake up and the politicians see the humongous masses of voters in the streets and decide to take efficacious action against global warming. Top scientists have already stated numerous times that we need to transition to low carbon fuels such as natural gas in the transportation sector. The flaring issues of the fossil fuel industry and the more prominent use of micro gird solutions will be distilled from ongoing talks on climate solutions. CPST is at bargain levels and has a very propitious future.

    The recent news about the Ryder/Anhueser Busch natural gas truck deal is just the beginning of the transformation in the transportation industry. What is happening is that more and more companies have tested NG trucks against diesel ones and found that the natural gas ones are more economical, lower maintenance, and more environmentally friendly than diesel. In addition, the Sept. 21 climate change march in New York and other global cities will highlight the need to transition to lower carbon fuels. This is a pivotal time for CLNE and wise investors should buy at these bargain levels.

    The economics are certainly one major selling point. However, to be more environmentally conscious is increasing among companies and the masses. The increasing awareness about climate change will encourage more natural gas use in the transportation sector.

    Anhueser Busch has been testing 2 natural gas trucks for awhile and states that the maintenance and fuel costs are much lower than their diesel trucks. The company recently decided to end all of their diesel trucks and replace them with natural gas. The recent order involves 66 Westport engines. They intend to eventually convert their entire fleet to natural gas. This is a humongous order for Westport and larger orders are coming. Search for "Budweiser Puts Its Diesel Trucks Out to Pasture" and read a very informative article.

    Okulawd, you are also correct. What happens is people get excited but rarely do their homework for the real value underlying the stock. The macroeconomic transition to natural gas vehicles is a tangible factor that is seldom considered by the crowd. WPRT has much larger intrinsic value than Tesla when you consider the reality of energy use and total expenses between Tesla and WPRT vehicles.The wise investors know that WPRT has a propitious future. Be patient.
