Is Vestas the answer to wind power?

Summary:  Vestas Wind ADR (VWDRY) is one of the few companies that actually has wind power installations in place that are generating energy at a profit.  The company is past the product development stage and is manufacturing and installing working wind power generators on a world wide basis.  I'd buy it for it's numbers alone.  I really like that idea that this may be a double barreled investment because the stock price is 25 cents on the dollar from its previous high and if investors can't see the value here the cash rich multi-national sharks will and they just might pay a premium to today's market price as they always do.

Vestas is one dimensional, they don't have a good product (compared to Siemens, etc...), and they're quickly losing market share to multiple competitors.  They also have a history of accidents, fires, etc...  I don't know about the stock price, but the company's technology and the company as a whole is quickly becoming obsolete.
