Why These 6 Alternative Energy Stocks Are Like Strung-Out Junkies

Whenever a sector has big winners, cheap, poor and greedy people are gonna look to get in on the action by buying and hyping bottom-of-the-barrel-companies that trade for less than $5/share. It’s science.

Take alternative energy—the rise of superstars like First Solar, Inc. (FSLR) and Energy Conversion Devices, Inc. (ENER) have paved the way for runups in industry laughingstocks Capstone Turbine Corporation (CPST) and SatCon Technology Corporation (SATC), Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies (QTWW) and Hydrogenics Corporation (USA) (HYGS). Worse yet, no matter the rising tide theory, the sector’s true embarrassments, Plug Power Inc. (PLUG) and Beacon Power Corp. (BCON), still can’t even rise much! (laughing at them truly does make you feel better about yourself, try it!)

This kind of gutter trash is my specialty—I’m not even gonna get into the fundamentals—or lack thereof—cuz no matter how bright a future these companies say they have, fancy accounting they use to prop up their numbers, etc. you really gotta think of them as junkies shooting up heroin (or alternative energy) in an alleyway. Message board posters, longs, naïve fund managers (themselves drug addicts…seriously, you have no idea how bad it is, pathetic that nobody talks about it openly) and ANALysts propping up their near-carcasses, feeding them one good meal and dressing them up to go to a big charity event to make themselves look good, only to ditch them later after they’ve gotten credit for doing a good deed (profiting form hyped up prices).

Overly cynical? Nope. 900 out 1,000 of these manure-esque companies will fail within a few years, 950 will fall back waaay below these spiked up prices and 990 of them will trade lower than what they’re at right now. These are just estimates based on industry fact and my decade-long experience and if you think you have the talent to profit from that 0.10% of successful companies, go right ahead.

On the other hand, all you odds-loving, drug-despising people, my bros, my students, my comrades in profit, join me in stalking their charts, patiently waiting to profit from their near-inevitable fall from grace, back to junkie stock prices, that being under $1 and $2.

This Is How A Fraud Trades: Laud Resources Inc (LAUD) & MyECheck Inc (MYEC)

That’s right kids, it’s time to play another round of “This Is How A Fraud Trades” Cue the music.

LAUD Resources Inc. (OTCBB: LAUD) is now woth over $200mil and has revenues of $1 mil…and that chart, as you all should know by now, is a classic classic manipulation scheme…company will say “we don’t know who’s manipulating our stock, we’re just innocent victims”…and then do a financing at 70% discount to pumped up prices…god I love this game!

2 Wild & Crazy Stock Charts & Videos That Teach Important Lessons

First up is NTI, which I shorted successfully again and again, several points ago…proving that while there’s money to be made on the short side, there’s even more to be made on the long side. More importantly, if you do short, you gotta recognize the difference between consolidation and gradual fading…NTI kept making higher lows and when you’ve got a stock this illiquid filled with determined/naive long-term shorts, it’s practically a short squeeze made in heaven, which is what’s goin’ on today. Learrrrrrn

Parabolic Stock Chart Of The Day: Unisource Energy Corp (UNS)

Overworked as I’ve become, I really appreciate it when you readers alert me to some solid opportunities. Today’s chart of the day comes courtesy of InvestorsLive (see MarketKid, that’s how you link when you feature someone else’s idea on your blog!)

Rather expensive, fundamentally sound, tied to commodity prices and slow moving for TIM to play, nonetheless, I consider all surging stocks as potential shorts…just gotta be extra careful on this one as its managed to take out 9-month resistance, then again, it has gone parabolic so we could see some conso0lidation soon…
