Each year I go through all of the stocks that I either own personally or have brought to the attention of the Irregulars (there’s quite a bit of overlap on those lists), and I make sure to update my thoughts and opinion on that stock in an organized and, hopefully, disciplined way — that helps […]

We’ve gotten a bunch of questions recently about this pitch from Nathan Slaughter about gas to liquids technology and the “death of OPEC,” so I’m sharing an excerpt from the Friday File article about this teaser that we published a little over three weeks ago for the Irregulars. Don’t worry, it’s the meat of the […]

Natural gas has to be the least favorite commodity in the United States right now — it’s dirt cheap even after it recovered from recent lows below two dollars, local communities in some areas are harrumphing about earthquakes and water pollution in the areas where hydrofracking is producing this cheap gas, and the gas developers […]

I’ve spent the past couple weeks going over my updated opinions on all of the past “Idea of the Month” stocks (or at least, those that haven’t already been dropped from coverage over the years), and I promised to put them all in one big list in order of likingness (yes, I know it’s not […]

Here’s the pitch for the ad I’m looking at this morning: “At the equivalent of $1.50 per gallon, the ‘fuel of the future’ is over 50% cheaper than diesel. And it’s many times safer, cleaner, and more environmentally friendly… “But what only a few people know — the rich, connected people, like Pickens and Soros […]

I cleared out my holdings in Westport Innovations today — during a very weak market for alternative energy stocks of most sorts it’s hard to sell anything in this sector, but I am very concerned about funding for the big ports Clean Trucks program that stands out as the single most important driver for Westport’s […]

Westport announced that they’ve gotten a huge order for buses that use the Cummins Westport natural gas engine — over 3,000 buses, which will give a nice bump to CWI revenue, some of which will trickle through to Westport. In truth, however, the real story of growth for Westport remains the California ports — the […]

You can now find Westport Innovations on the Nasdaq — they got their US listing and IPO today, so if you’ve been dying to buy this developer of alternative fuel engines but didn’t like the pink sheet or Canadian listings, you’re in luck. It’s trading under the ticker symbol WPRT, if you happened to own […]

Westport Innovations, the natural gas engine company that was teased a while back by the Alternative Energy Speculator, continues to develop. We should all be cautious, because this company has been around for a long time and gotten hyped up several times in the past before falling back down. It seems different to me this […]

I meant to commend an article to you a few days ago … and I forgot. So here it is. Longtime Gumshoe reader WomanWithPortfolio wrote a good piece on a company that I also own shares of, Westport Innovations, and that was brought to my attention originally by a teaser ad for the Alternative Energy […]

Interesting short article from Forbes today featured one stock I own, Westport Innovations. Westport Innovations was teased by the Alternative Energy Speculator in their “Clean Air Cash-Outs” piece, the original Stock Gumshoe writeup is here. The Forbes article is here, the section on Westport reads: “Westport Innovations, listed in Toronto, has partnered with enginemaker Cummins […]
