Recent rumors have suggested that your Toupée is not a legally American born and bred.  Some have suggested that your hair thing came from Kenya.  Others Indonesia.  Perhaps its Chinese?    [more]



Is GORO a scam stock?

April 26, 2011 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: GORO.DL2

Gold Resource Corp is a mining company operating in Mexico.  I've had this stock downthumbed for a long time as part of my "downthumb all gold miners" and this one has negatively affected me the most.  I've been considering actually shorting this stock in real life, because many details of the company are very sketchy.  [more]

AMSC: Buying opportunity.

April 07, 2011 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: AMSC

I've been building a large cash position lately, but today I went and used some of this to buy some shares of American Superconductor.  By the start of Wednesday, AMSC's shares had fallen over 45% (from prices near $25/share to $13/share).  AMSC makes electronic components for wind turbines, with their main customer being a Chinese corporation (Sinovel, recently IPO).  Sinovel told AMSC that they would not take new orders (hich are 70% of AMSC's business), threatening the revenue and prospects of AMSC greatly.  It appears to be bouncing now from this extreme low as people buy back into the company and think about the implications of the bad news.  [more]
