My guess Alex is shrilling NENE-New Energy Technologies, Inc. is a development-stage company. The Company conducts its operations through three wholly owned subsidiaries Sungen Energy, Inc. (Sungen), Kinetic Energy Corporation (KEC), and New Energy Solar Corporation (New Energy Solar). The Company is a renewable and alternative energy company developing two sustainable electricity generating systems. The Company focuses on the development of two technologies: MotionPower and SolarWindow. The CompanyÒ€ℒs SolarWindow products in development are designed to generate electricity on glass while remaining see-through. MotionPower products in development are systems that generate clean electricity by capturing and making use of the kinetic… Read more Β»

Sogiam is correct. I do not subscribe to Alex Koyfman’s newsletter, but I did some research on New Energy Technologies (NENE). They are primarily a research company with two main products in development. Their scientific staff appears to be highly qualified for this research. They do not yet have any products for sale or any income. Even though the company has been around since 1998, it is still highly speculative. It was formerly called Octillion. The new name fits it better. I took a chance and bought 500 shares @ $1.55. I am willing to risk $775 that they will… Read more Β»

I look at them every now and then, they’re often teased. It worries me that a tiny R&D firm spends so much on SG&A and so little on R&D, but I haven’t looked deeply at their progress (or lack thereof, perhaps) in quite a while.

Off topic: Travis, I know theres a ‘Suggest an Tease’ place somewhere on the GS site, but damned if I can find it. Saw a tease about the new Bitcoin ie Rewards and ways to exploit it. If you find time to look http://pro.wallstreetdaily.com/TAOREWARDSUSPRC/MTAOR105/?a=9&o=64084&s=69177&u=1123245&l=449637&r=MC&g=0&h=true

I am 90% sure that it is Points.com; points international ltd; PCOM is an exchange site for all the points and loyalty programs. Those of you who use loyalty programs for the airlines, hotels and others might find it interesting. They are making some money now: http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ks?s=PCOM. but the stock price is about 11 now down from 30 in the last year . I would like to hear from others who use these programs and see if they like points.com THX Charlie

Thanks Chris….but I dont think that was the call he was making in the teaser (play it and youll see) It seemed more like a strategy than a stock.

Travis,
That came up in my mind too. Are they really trying to manufacture a product or just existing on stock promotions? So far it appears to be the latter, but they really are making a product, which if they can ever get it right could be a big money winner. I have a list of questions to ask them. I’ll post the Q & A here when I get a response.

NENE-Rosalind after 27 or so years and blowing through +$24M (retained earnings reflected in most recent balance sheet) I’d say the latter also, as I tried to emphasize in post #1 above without being point-blank. Much better investments may be discovered here: http://www.stockgumshoe.com/2015/01/the-2015-stock-gumshoe-biotechnology-awards-show/#comment-4040881 IMO. Best to ALL!-Benjamin

The latest news is they are changing their name to Solar Window Technologies with a new ticker symbol SOLW to take effect on Monday. I called to make sure my NENE shares would be converted over. NENE has gone up on the news and I’m showing a small profit now. I’m not sure if this is another ploy to promote the new stock since the old NENE was losing its luster, but they do have a workable product for window treatment. They have been testing a film application of the solar window, which would be easier to market and install… Read more Β»

A Nene is a type of goose. Be aware & act accordingly. IMHO

The Israelis opened a hundred kilometers of piezo electric highway in Nov 2014. Does anyone have an update as to its success or disappointmentnts? L’Nois

Pump and Dump alert! As someone in the solar industry(residential and commercial system designer), I can tell you the claims are rubbish. Windows are not generally in a prime location for direct sunlight – rooftops are. The amount of harvestable power coming from indirect light and light bulbs is miniscule by comparison. Simple tests with a pyranometer can show this. Conventional solar panels are already reaching over 20% efficiencies with some manufacturers.

What a bunch of paranoid, conspiracy theory nutjobs… This stock is the future of solar and will shortly be where Solar City is today, make no mistake about it. Apart from demonstrating their technology to US Congress last fall, they are on the very cusp of bringing their products to market. Now is the stupidest possible time to bash NENE or its tech. Their tech uses organic PV which is less efficient than rare earth PV, but drastically less expensive. Their proof of concept demonstration to congress should be sufficient to quiet the “pump & dump” scam conspiracy nutjobs, but… Read more Β»

Have you done the science? Here is a simple experiment. Tonight take a solar powered calculator or radio outside your home window of a well lit room and see if the light transmission through your window will power the device,,,then tomorrow check outside
ambient sunlight and see if there is a difference. Do not believe self serving promo from any company without checking veracity. Pump & dump by third party is still pump & dump.

Not exactly a fair comparison. Since the company admits their see-through panel is not as efficient for given panel size as a conventional PV panel, they should be judged, not on the efficiency of a same-sized panel, but rather on the light gathering power of the surface area of the windows in a typical home to the light gathering power of a PV array on the roof of a typical home. Doing that, it is clear that, unless your home has more window surface area than roof surface area, no see-through panels could generate as much electricity as a roof-mounted… Read more Β»

Dear Steven Silva,
Personally I think it is fine to have an opposing point of view, but couldn’t you be more polite to express your viewpoint without insulting the other people who wrote in?

I’ve bought and sold NENE at a (small) profit over the past three years, and I may buy some again. My wife still has 1000 shares and plans to hold them. NENE is up more than 22% YOY. In September 2014, The DOE’s National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL) scientists presented SolarWindow modules to staff and members of Congress as part of the first National Lab Day on Capitol Hill, co-sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy. All of the “proof of concept” work is behind them, so now it’s a matter of getting geared up for low-cost, high-speed production.

Let’s not forget why houses and offices have windows in the first place: to see out and let the sunlight in.
