In doing my research for this pick I got about half way through the first sentence of the company profile when I saw the words "alternative fuel".

Enough research for me!

Since this analysis was made, FSYS has appreciated by around 70%. I think that it will at least double from here in the next 2 years. Using labels, such as "alternative fuel", to brand a company, its products, and its prospects, can be dangerous to your wealth.

I certainly wouldn't be so quick to jump to conclusions with real money - and these shares have retreated quite a bit recently - I still think I made the right call, but time will tell.

You shorted this stock when it was down 75%. Alternative fuel? They make devices that can allow your car to run on fuels other than gasoline. Your pain will continue as theis stock goes back to its former highs and will make new ones.

I agree that Thinking "alternative fuel" just seems like it's not possible, but thats what they said when companies were developing wireless cell phones too. Alternative fuel is a good thing. We need to find better more efficient fuels than oil and gasoline. If this company can do that, it can do wonders for our economy and maybe even help reduce green house gases and better the environment. This company is a thumbs up over the long hual.

TMFEldrehad, rationale like yours for picking a stock makes this whole board useless. More consideration from an esteemed fellow would be warranted in the future, as opposed to [paraphrasing here] "I read the word alternative fuel in the first sentence, so the stock/company will tank." The lack of insight also reflects on your other picks and endeavors.
