Hatten das Spiel doch im Dez. auch.Tiefrot und alle haben gejammert.(Ich auch) Doch dann drehte die Sache wieder und es hieß,daß waren Kaufkurse. Vielleicht beginnt das ganze wieder von vorne und in ein paar Tagen lachen wir nur über den Kurs von heute. Zweckoptimismus von Trader Leo!!
..., denke ich auch. Nur ist trotzdem blöd gelaufen. Bin heute morgen auch reingegangen - nach einigem Zögern. Strategisch dürfte es richtig gewesen sein, operativ mal wieder zu früh. Kann natürlich morgen nach dem Meeting total anders aussehen. Aber ich vermute eher das Gewitter wird einige Tage andauern. Wenigstens habe ich nicht das ganze Pulver verschossen und kann nachladen.
Halte mein restliches Pulver lieber trocken,diese Woche. Ist mir etwas zu unsicher die Lage im Moment. Sowie der Markt aber wieder dreht und seine Richtung findet,dann bin ich voll dabei! Ist halt ein kleiner Wert,da sind die Ausschläge gleich heftig.
: Nachricht über Merger wohl erst 2-4 Tage später
Habe in einem anderen Board gelesen, dass jemand sich bei der RSOL IR Abteilung nach dem Ergebnis zum Merger mit Mercury erkundigt hat. Da das das 8-k dazu erstellt werden muss, wird es wahrscheinlich 2-4 Tage dauern, bis die Meldung kommt. Ich denke aber mal, dass wir spätestens Donnerstag das Ergebnis haben werden. Die Vermutung ist eh, dass der Deal durchgeht.
Habe mich da auch verleiten lassen hier einzusteigen.Ist für mich eine Position die ich mal laufen lassen will,die nächsten Monate und mal schauen,ob Kollege Maydorn mal wieder den richtigen Tipp aus USA bekommen hat.
aus einer älteren Meldung vom August 2013...Real Goods will issue 7.9 million shares to acquire Port Chester, New York-based Mercury, the Louisville, Colorado-based company said in a statement today. The deal is subject to approval from both companies? shareholders. Mercury generated $35 million in sales last year, has about $10 million in cash and no debt.

"As an added benefit, Mercury bolsters our balance sheet with an additional $12 million of net working capital, including more than $10 million of cash, and without adding debt.

Jared Haines, president of Mercury, commented: "The entire Mercury team is very excited to be joining Real Goods Solar, a recognized pioneer and leader in solar energy. Our combined resources and capabilities make us a very strong national player and a more significant force in the industry."
Real Goods Solar acquired Mercury in an all-stock transaction totaling approximately 8.3 million shares of Class A common stock, which recently received shareholder approval. In addition to valuable physical assets, operational systems and customer base, Mercury brings to Real Goods Solar more than 50 employees, including three seasoned executives who have been appointed to key positions:
Jared Haines was appointed vice president of sales at RGS Energy, the commercial and utility division of Real Goods Solar. Haines, a cofounder of Mercury, previously served as Mercury's president. He has had a successful career in sales of commercial solar systems and was instrumental in building the Mercury business and brand.

"Real Goods Solar has made tremendous progress over the past 18 months," said Mofid. "We developed and deployed a precise roadmap that successfully addressed a number of key issues and challenges, and this allowed us to restart our growth engine on the back of improved productivity and results.
"With the Mercury transaction complete, Real Good Solar has become very well-positioned in terms of leadership talent, geography, and internal resources and capabilities. As we embark upon the next phase of our journey, we are looking forward to an exciting year ahead and taking the business to the next level of growth and performance."
Die Kapitalbeschaffung war ein wichtiger Schritt in die Zukunft !.Und auch ein Zeichen für den Aktienkurs dieser sollte heute im Bereich zwischen 4,10$ und 4,40$ Dollar schließen.Oft braucht die Börse + Analysten einige Tage um diese News richtig zu deuten.Ein Kursziel von 5$-6$ Dollar bis ende des Jahres, sehe ich als reallistisch !.Natürlich kann dies niemand genau bestimmen oder einschätzen.Gruß Lars
