That’s Westport Innovations (WPRT), I’ve covered it quite a few times over the years and mentioned it as the solution to this pitch in our free email back when the pitch first started circulating a couple months ago. Here’s what I said about it when I last looked at the stock, back in January when I reviewed stocks for the Irregulars: Westport Innovations (WPRT) – I suggested Westport five or six years ago, when it was emerging as a natural gas engine technology company with appealing prospects in the heavy truck business. It has suffered from “overpromise/underdeliver” almost every year… Read more »

I think PSIX is a better stock in the same type.

Not until Obama lets the US DRILL BABY DRILL, if he would have listened to PICKEN’S and pipelines instead of Warren Buffet/Obama Rail Road hauling oil at 10 $ a barrel more than pipelines, he would not be in the jam he is, and we are stuck with him as he does what he wants. There is a Constitution but it is not for the middle east ans Islam. Pipeline technology is so far ahead of Warrens trains hauling Warren oil tankers through every town, it is not the Rockefeller Rail Road anymore , nor the global warming and EPA… Read more »

Isn’t it time to look up the definition of corruption? Add endemic and you’ll see all answers right before you.

Thank’s. Cathy Kandravi for your comment. I like your last comment about Obama throwing Canada under the Bus. As a Canadian and a neighbour of the USA. Why can’t we share our wealth(oil) with you? During the cold war IN THE 50’S; the USA was ready to send jets to Canada in case of invasion from Russia. Its time we pay back our dues and send our OIl to you tax free. Please let us remain the best of friends and Neighbours.

Bingo, you hit the nail on the head, it is all about payback for Buffett who invested heavily in rail, so he doesn’t want to see pipeline, and he let obuma know it in no uncertain terms as major donor.

BLDP is on fire and has done better than any of the stocks listed above! http://finviz.com/quote.ashx?t=bldp&ty=c&ta=1&p=d As far as the “Aw Shucks” guy is concerned , supposedly a deal was worked out that he would say we should pay more in taxes , and in exchage Obama would veto the pipeline., thereby giving the right for Warren to ship the oil via his railroads. What a FRAUD ! My advice to Warren would be to take his own advice sell half his shares ,and PAY TAXES to the government ,,,,,,,and then donate what is left to hospitals , charities and… Read more »

Thank you Stiles Watson for your comment regarding psix & it was a great pick exactly 1 year ago today when it hit its 52 wk low of $19.50 and closed today at +$81. Don’t think i ready to buy at that price but will keep an eye on it for investor profit taking price drop.

It is hard to argue against the conservative position Travis takes regarding Westport who has indeed had a hard time generating any kind of profit. That being said, the speculator in me says the company will eventually prove the thesis that natural gas is the fuel of the future and may even spread from mostly business vehicles to personal cars when enough re-fueling stations have been built. Maybe the current potential profit position lies more in that buildout? FACT: I have made excellent profits 3 times on Westport, once on a direct purchase and TWICE using regular CALL options and… Read more »

Myron; I agree with your analysis but the problem is not the engine which is what Westport is working on. Just about any engine that will run on gasoline or diesel will run on NG. Before Henry Ford built his first auto he built engines that ran on city gas. Natural gas is a low density fuel [a little better than hydrogen] and must be stored in its liquid phase to get any kind of driving range out of it. At present that means either high pressure tanks[like welding cylinders] Or a thermos-bottle like tank,so capacity is limited. I see… Read more »

Before fuel injectors, coverting cars from gasoline to nat gas was easy. Not anymore, along with all the computerized fuel controls. Also, the EPA imposes large fees per model for garages to do conversions. Regulation therefore blocks the sort of quick changes that readily took place in Latin America.
