Ok, i don't think you would be wasting your money here, but I just want to point out 1) I'm not an expert in picking stocks (I'm usually wrong) and 2) I'm a shareholder in the following company and I believe the hype
2008 is on track to be one of the warmest ever. Demand Response has a potential to be a huge market if we end up with a few heat waves. Microfield seems to have their act together.
Would I rather this were on the Nasdaq? Sure. I hate OTC (ok, I'm guilty of buying a lot of them, but I always regret it later).
Keep an eye on this one. It's really low, and I don't expect it to go much lower. Summertime can only bring good news for a company like this.
If everything works well in the world of energy, there is a place for demand response. If things go badly, there is an even bigger place for it. The only way that this is a bad play is if the economy gets so flat that we have a glut of energy, or a bigger player comes in and does this better.
For starters, WyldeWolf1 gives good advice. I have taken part in more than one long distance relationship. I've also abstained from getting involved in at least one. The questions (for me) are usually along the lines of: How long distance is it?
