+ Watch WPRT
on My Watchlist
Nat gas not getting cheaper.
Buy on pullback
It takes a little time for trucking companies to change fuel sources. Westport being associated with Cummings can only bolster their position.
This is a speculative bet that they will finally manage to get their act together and live up to their potential and promise. Of course, they could easily plumment to single digits if LNG doesn't become a main transportation fuel. And the possibility of the 'shale gas revolution' being a flop also adds to the risk.
A Real Deal
It shows no signs of life. After losing 68% I may be a little biased but I think it will loose that much in half the time. Gas engines...or just hot gas?
Lack of distribution infrastructure will hold back wide spread use of natural gas as the fuel to propel our vehicular transportation
Still seems a little expensive. If it dropped more and insiders started biting, I would buy.
Longer term winner...
The so-called market is based on successful-looking stox. Over 5 years, WPRT will be a "bit player" in its field. Its technology will in use but its not miraculous stuff, and it will not have any power to control pricing: the engine builders will decide what to pay (make no mistake, the likes of DLPH and Bosch could easily make these items, patents not-withstanding).
Natural Gas infrastructure is starting to develop, Natural Gas will become the fuel of choice for those seeking lower costs with cleaner emissions.
A great technology matching the challenges of global warming. Moving now from the US and Europe to India.
Monkey doesn't understand complicated things like industrial engines, but he does understand that the world is moving toward increased utilization of Natural Gas which is more efficient and better for the environment. As in, way better, and the environment needs all the help it can get, as you already know but maybe don't actually believe. Well, the fine folks in China who need to wear masks to merely go outside believe it. And China will be one of Westport's most important business partners. Gentle humans, the inflection point of natural gas engine adoption is upon us. The stock price is currently down––way down. When does Monkey buy? When everyone has lost faith or has had their patience worn down to threadbare nubbins but the evidence on the ground suggests the company's vision is never closer to actual execution. The time is now.
cheap, cheap, cheap!
Shale gas abundant not only in US, but also in China and Argentina (already 43% energy matrix in Argentina); Gradual expansion of gas engines from trains, trucks and vessels, onto cars.
The conversion to natural gas engines is certainly taking its time and my WPRT pick has been up and now down. Currently priced at $17 per stub and trailing the market by 54% since my pick.I'm going to continue to hold because the market for natural gas engines could be large and WPRT has good technology. The $1.0 B market cap could turn to a $0, $3, $5, or $10B market cap before you know it.
The natural-gas-engine market is booming, and will continue to thrive for years. Westport has the patents to dominate this market for some time.
The price of Diesel is ridiculous. At one time, the gasoline companies were giving away diesel; it is a byproduct of gasoline refinement. By the mid-50s only did diesel demand a price, say 6 cents a gallon. Gasoline companies think we are dopes. Its only by legislation that diesel is taxed and sold at a premium price. They are really raking it in. Natural Gas is the wave of the future for long-haul diesel trucks.
Major LNG engine developer incl. patents. Now at a good buy point.
I think the future is looking great for this disruptive company.
