Closed and reopened to more accurately reflect my actual start price.

Actually in at $0.65, but still not a large part of my portfolio.

Still expect them to improve performance in the future, but still struggling to get there.

JMO and worth exactly what I am charging for it.

Sure am glad I opened that account with Trade King, after Buy and Hold decided not to allow trading in them anymore.

Just sold some to lock in profits, but kept most of it.

I am up 118% on it so far.

Sometimes you get lucky and these small cap stocks pay off big.

Will post a link to the news that is driving it later.

With what is happening, I believe it is worth a look for a small position, even at the current price.

Here is the link to the PR NewsWire article on Yahoo Finance about the long term deal they signed with Volkswagen.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/ballard-signs-long-term-engineering-172700056.html

It is expected to be worth from $60M to $100M.

They also got an investment to pursue Fuel Cells for home use in Africa.

The second one could, over the longer term, be more valueable than the first.

It looks like the "shorts" who got "squeezed" yesterday are back at it again today.

If they drive it down far enough, I will buy back the shares I sold for a $118% gain yesterday, to add to those I kept.

Their strength is their engineering, and that is what VW is wanting from them for now.

Can go up and down easily in this market, but they have turned the corner now and should be profitable going forward from here.

It's ridiculous that TMF doesn't have a link to a 100 mil+ contract that Ballard signed with VW.

Not sure what you mean by a link Jim.

There is a link in my pitch from Yahoo Finance.

I wasn't aware of TMF posting links, unless it is something so obvious that I have missed it completely.

I just finished reading the Ballard annual report, and it looks promising going forward, now that the VW contract replaced the one that ended with Damlier, but the cancelling, or at least post poning of expected bus contracts has had an effect.

They have taken steps to concentrate on the more immediately profitable portions of their business, so I expect some good things for them going forward.

Good luck to you in your investing.

Temporary drop on new share issuance and fear of dilution.

A good opportunity to reduce your holding cost if you are in above this number.

It will come back.

Need cash to fund their "China Bus Deal".

It did "whack" my score though.:)

Sold some this morning when it had the big "upside overshoot" on speculative trading.

When you are investing in small caps, you have to watch out for the day traders who run it up and then dump it.

They are still a good company with a good future ahead of them, but the share price got way ahead of itself.

Hope you didn't buy in at the top and get burned.
