My dad has told me that when I was really young, he told me once “I don’t ever want to see you do that again.” and I responded with “okay close your eyes.”

This is the kind of company I really like to pick on. It's been around for years and years never generating a profit, constantly issuing new shares and reverse splitting every couple of years to get that share count back down. Look at that accumulated deficit!!! $800 MILLION!!! You have to wonder when shareholders will stop throwing good money after bad on this cash-eating machine...

They pretty consistently burn $20-25 MM in free cash flow per year. The little bit of credit I have to give management here is they utilized the recent run up in share price to issue more shares - shareholders might not like it, but the terms were not bad from a management perspective. But the decision to dilute had an almost instant impact of knocking the share price down ~20%. But they definitely have the cash now to keep the lights on for a decent period of time. So this is not one that go to zero quickly. It will, however, bleed lower over time. If you want a good laugh, go look at the price per share before all the reverse splits in 2000. I am seeing it peak at about $1,970 per share. Not what I would call a good long term hold!!!

This stock has been a loser since, well, conception. I see no catalyst to change this continual underperformer.

they continue to get orders on a weekly basis and have plenty of a back log to start paying down debt and start building their cash cushion

Cash flow metrics are less susceptible to management manipulation and convey operating information often less scrutinized by investors.
Need to improve operating efficiency.

Capstone has a great technology that is going to become more and more sought after as grid power becomes more iffy and expensive. It seems to me that when disaster hits areas where they have installations, they always end up with good press. That's a win.

As new oil and gas deposits are discovered and exploited, generation systems that rely on multiple inputs become more useful in remote regions off the power grid. Capstone's products fit these better than most, but do have competition from GE, Cummins etc.

Capstone is the world's leading manufacturer of microturbines, the demand for which keeps rising. Their earnings release of August 8 was disappointing, but pointed out a record backlog. Share prices dropped about 15% right after, reaching a low of $1.07 recently (after a high of $1.52 at the end of July/beginning of August). Since then, there have been news of more orders and. In addition, the stock was just added to the NASDAQ Clean Edge Green Energy Index. Share prices are rising, hovering around $1.18 now. I expect more good news in the next few weeks and a positive earnings release in the beginning of November.

Interesting investment...looks like market opportunity is ther but historically company has lagged expectations. Valuation ratios are getting better though
