Those who wanted out of HPJ as shareholders had their recent chance with the Rodman & Renshaw conference post rally. That has quickly fizzled out and we are left with the haunting uncertainty that there is a real and concerted effort by aggressors to take over Highpower on the cheap. CEO George Pan continues to offer nothing in respect to communications to the outside. Hush hush is the mantra. My belief is that Q3 is going to be extremely strong and this should put the boot heel down on our takeover candidates once and for all. On the dark side of the equation, if we get terrible, disappointing Q3 numbers (which will shock the daylights out of me), then the game has officially changed. No way around it in that George Pan is under the gun these days.
@El Paso Jet, Good morning El Paso. Here is the burning question behind all of this charade. Why on Earth does CEO Pan not fire both Li and Ma. It is within his scope of power and control as a CEO who is not only protecting his own investment interests but also the shareholders and the overall vision for the companies progress in the future. Is there a something in the 'Chinese Business Code of Ethics' (my term) that prohibits a CEO from terminating individuals who are suspected of undermining the companies well being. In my opinion, a person has to be deaf, dumb and blind to not put two and two together to see that Ma and Li are colluding with the dark side. They both have been banished on a certain level but Pan has not taken strong enough efforts to purge these individuals. They need to be removed, just as cancer in the early stages in the human body. The longer you leave it present, odds favor things getting worse, and that appears to be the case here. For the record, my recommendation would be to terminate both Ma and Li post haste. These two individuals are shameful, lack respect for the company and it's shareholders, and their actions are beyond disrespectful. Why Pan tolerates this behavior yet has stated he cares about the company and it's shareholders is a direct contradiction. It's getting to the point that an investor or potential investor has no idea who to trust. Hence on falling/stagnant share price and inability to elevate investment interest from the US. I would enjoy your thoughts from the Chinese perspective on why Pan does not simply eliminate both Ma and Pan. Let's clear the clouds from the sky and let the sun shine through.
It is unfortunate that Li is selling such quantity of shares now. If we had a choice, I'm sure we would all prefer he didn't. But that is not the case so we must accept or reject his actions. I have have looked at this every which way and cannot come to a place of understanding as to why he is selling right now. Seems to me it's the worst time given the growth curve HPJ is on. None the less, Li is going for it. Blowing out his shares like a hungry hippo. The story supporting HPJ has not changed but rather continues to strengthen. This is my assessment only. Additionally, Li's selling is really hindering advancement of the share price. This guy has a hammer lock on the share price right now, and until he blows out his entire 800 thousand shares, the governing of the share price will continue. Beyond this recent filing of Li's, we have no idea what this 'loose cannon' is going to do in the future. He will still have approx 1.4 million shares on his hands to do whatever he pleases with. So right now we do know that Li is selling his shares fast and furiously. We also know that HPJ (according to what they have reported through official channels and what they have said on the recent conference call) is building the seemingly 'perfect beast' and should continue to capitalize on increasing demand for the product they offer/can offer. At the end of the day we have Li nullifying all the good efforts and strides HPJ is making. This should be viewed as a temporal effect and at some point in time will pass. Li has a limited amount of shares and this cannot go on forever. So what each of us (investors) must come to terms with is whether we believe in the Highpower story or not. Li's actions promote fear, doubt, confusion and surpise (the Chinese Poisons), while Highpowers performance metrics support optimism and belief in a bright future. This is the situation at hand and one must decide which side of the line to stand on. Good luck to us all in whatever decision we make.
EPJ what do you make of the sell off today in Chinese securities? I wish I had waited a few days, I added some JD last week. Looks like HPJ will remain stuck around 4.50 to 5 until q3?
SEC FILING BY LI TODAY (IN FIDELITY)
He sold 1800 shares on September 21st for 5.25 He acquired 20,000 shares as a bonus at zero cost on the 22nd of September He also received 32,500 on the 22nd of September as an option that expires 09/22/18 to buy HPJ at 4.65
According to the new energy vehicle policy, the starting point of testing the effectiveness of these vehicles are from the public bus sector. The main reason of choosing this sector is because of the regularity of usage, they can accurately predict various behavior and outcome because these buses daily usage is beaded on schedule and they can derive all kind of statistic to further refine and guide the progress and approach in future development of EV and hydrogen fuel cell vehicle.
What does HPJ produce?
ELECTRIC BUS LITHIUM BATTERY.
Ladies and gentlemen, HPJ IS AT THE HEART OF PRODUCING THE "KEY PRODUCT", and it is happening now as we speak.
Does Li really know what he is doing? I seriously doubted, he just might change his mind in dumping his 800K shares. It will very, very unwise if he doesn't' change his mind and throws away his "INVESTMENT" or his "MONEY".
This HPJ will and can become "HUGE", just wait and see.
Anyone still wants to own some KNDI? It went up 60 cents and squeeze party just get started. Even though this is rest time for me, can't help myself to tell you guys this good news. Have a good day.
Go HPJ, go!!!!!!!!!!
Since Li is in the board now, I am sure he is making the best decision for himself. It is very hard to sell 800k shares, we will soon know. I found a detailed chart in Fidelity and here are the major action: around 9:45 am 4 blocks in a row of 13,596, 40,373, 21,882 and 27,191 that sent us to 5.39 around 10:15 a 19,082 block around 3.45 p.m. a 14,096 block
This is serious money being poured into HPJ...Mutual Funds most likely besides short covering (100k as of last report). Buses business will be discussed in next cc I am sure. Unfortunately I will be in Mazatlan, Mexico for 15 days and would like someone to ask that question.
weird that we did not have strong follow through today especially as it was the last day to lock in the dividend rights. All in all, it has been abnormal trading to me, I can't figure out how we had such strong volume and ended up closing higher the last 2 days even with Li selling his shares, but today we dropped significantly on much less volume. Hoping that we can close the week over $5 again, I just can't stand seeing this stock under $5, it's almost like a slap in the face every day we can't close over $5.... that's a lot of slaps.
Long time lurker. Small time shareholder in HPJ. Anyone notice the uptick in the awesomestocks robo accounts? I hadn't seen many up until the past 4 or 5 days. HPJ is gaining enough attention to draw in robo adverts. Until now, I'd only seen this behavior on weed stocks.
Anyone have a different perspective on this behavior change. Also, love reading the insightful views from so many of you.
With the closing of BITCOIN market, commodity future staring to weaken, softening of the smart money from the opposition party to create chaos in the financial market alongwith the development and opening of bond market and equity market, I seriously believe the long term bull run are in the making.
One main factor that might derail this progress might come from the west because this can directly challenge the dominance of the Western world. Currently most of the good signs are there.
Good luck everyone.
I bet there will be a huge increase in demand for portable energy storage devices, and also batteries in general since we have had so many natural disasters.
what great volume we are seeing this week, something is happening behind the scenes
Anyone post items and then they don't show up?
Things seem to be getting overextended for HPJ. Do you guys find it difficult to know when to buy or sell something? I prefer to get my stocks from awe.some*sto-ck*s.

Shanghai just announced that they have decided to go with hydrogen fuel cell as the future foco point in future auto. They are one of the top auto producers, since Shanghai will spear head with this, I feel by default that Guang #$%$ will focus on electric bus & heavy utility vehicle because they are right at the industrial zone. Chong Qing will focus on other type of technology. HPJ should have some edge in the battery area.
If it's so "Undervalued you can buy 8000 right now for $4.95. Jump on that. Of course the company's officers sold a boat load at $5.00 so me, I'm skeptical. I'll sit and wait. I'd love to be wrong but if the past is ant indication, it's doubtful I am. Give me all the thumbs down you want. I'm just the messenger!
Generally, the Rights Agreement works by imposing a significant penalty upon any person or group (including a group of persons that are acting in concert with each other) that acquires fifteen percent (15%) or more of the outstanding shares of Common Stock without the approval of the Board. As a result, the overall effect of the Rights Agreement and the issuance of the Rights may be to render more difficult or discourage a merger, tender or exchange offer or other business combination involving the Company that is not approved by the Board. The Rights Agreement is not intended to interfere with any merger, tender or exchange offer or other business combination approved by the Board. Nor does the Rights Agreement prevent the Board from considering any offer that it considers to be in the best interest of its stockholders.
