I am a shareholder. I don't own a ton but I have some, so there's my disclosure upfront.

Energy Connect is a business that has been hit really hard by the recession. Stock symbol ECNG.

I believe that a company like theirs will do very well with the coming Greenhouse gas rules / Cap & Trade / Whatever they come up with.

http://arstechnica.com/​tech-​policy/​news/​2009/​11/​energy-​agency-​financial-​crisis-​an-​unprecedented-​opportunity.ars

Their stock has been bad because there has been no market for energy, therefore no need for anyone to cut production.

Anwyay they have a conference call tomorrow and the stock usually goes down after news of any sort, so you might want to look at this for around a nickel a share tomorrow

//edit: current price around $.11, I bought my first shares at $1.40. Yeah. Anyway I'm quite long on this.

Huh?

I've had this stock for over two years now. I still think this technology has a point.

Is Cramer blathering about this market in general, or this stock?

My investment guy has been making a lot of moves into this industry in the past few months. Up until now it's always been an environmentalist's pipe dream to be able to invest in greentech energy and actually turn a profit. I've had some money in various companies for a while now, but mostly to either places I've worked at or otherwise had a vested interest in, never expecting to even break even, let alone see a profit. Right now there are a fortunate set of circumstances where a slowly recovering economy coincides with both a growing sense of green responsibility and a liberal government (though the way it's going, those chuckleheads will never get anything substantial done).

Blah blah, the point is anybody who's got the cash should at least throw a few dollars into a greentech index fund right about now.

As someone who worked in Reverse Mergers in the MicroCap market, just wanted to extend a word of advice when it comes to trading in these stocks. While some of these stories do hit & do well in the long run, a LARGE majority of these stories end up with an initial bump post-merger & then the realities of business & public markets take hold & these stocks come crashing back to earth.

They can often keep the promise of a great future going with an 8K promise of a new JV, legislation, or some other piece of news that promises record returns, but just be wary that you very well may end up holding toilet paper after sticking with these things for a loooong time.

I think the operative point here is that, if you can get 100 shares for the price of a couple of lottery tickets, why not diversify your longshot spending?

I'm gonna ask the same question I ask every time you start one of these threads:

Did you ever get your Phantom Lapboard or what?

They cancelled my order, I think.

I hear one bad decision means you can never make a good one.

In my defense, I'm exactly even on Phantom- I doubled my money on it the year before we bought it. I still have 120k worthless shares.

OK...stupid question (maybe)?

For someone who has never bought stock in anything other than what my company gives me...how do you buy something like this.

I know there are sites like Ameritrade, etc...but is that necessary for buying *ahem* entry level stocks like this?

Don't buy this stock

Get an E-trade or Ameritrade account. Put only money in it that you would have spent on beer, DVDs, etc. Do not invest any money that you wouldn't have otherwise thrown out the window in some other pursuit.

How about this: are there any programs or websites that simulate stock trading and such using virtual money so that someone can get the groove and idea of buying and trading stock before getting fully involved?

You know, kinda like playing online poker through Pokerstars or whatever but using their free "play money" service?

I've been fascinated with the idea of investing stock, but I want to get into it with some experience first.

I believe you can just create a stock profile on Yahoo! or any other portal site and tell it what what stocks you own and what you paid. That should be enough - along with a spreadsheet if you want to buy and sell.

I found a site for stock market simulation: not sure if it's really good or not, but it has access to both American and Canadian stock listings. If it interests anyone, check out http://www.smartstocks.com.
