"I still don't like AB's response to many of the Q&A, he contradicts himself frequently, in a previous video he referred to the by product as mineralised water, i remember because i googled it, then yesterday he referred to it as de-mineralised water, it's there little points that may seem little but shows he's still winging it."
Someone accidentally misspeaking doesn't automatically show that they are winging it, that's just how you are choosing to see it. Everyone misspeaks sometimes and often without realising. It's not a big deal.
If folk can't play in the weeds without losing sight of the big picture then it's probably best to stay out of the weeds.
Jhonboy, as you've read it I don't need to tell you that the moral of Frankel's writing in man's search for meaning is that even in the most unbearable situations you have the power to choose how you act and respond to circumstances and life around you. FCI calling the behaviour of some on here utterly sickening might be a bit strong but the people he's talking about are choosing (not in bad circumstances I might add) to behave in a way that doesn't speak well for their character. So choice of language aside FCI's point is spot on.

"That is one question we would like to know as things see to have gone quite on it. In articles & interviews of late from both companies there has been no mention of Britishvolt & visa versa. Both are planning on building gigafactories now."
My understanding has always been that amte were planning on building their own gigafactory for their specialist cells long before the tentative talks with britishvolt came about. The talks with britishvolt were about supporting britishvolt with their plans for a high volume production facility for more conventional cells. Amte will be just fine either way.

Agreed. Give it time and it has all the ingredients to do very well. I've been invested in ilika for a few years for their lithium ion steady state but I've also invested here as there's a real opportunity for sodium ion.
RE: British regulator reports 41 more blood clots01 May 2021 15:22
I agree with you Haggis. I'm not new to investing or AFC, I'm oriented towards long-term investing also and I don't get frustrated with my investments for a myriad of reasons but principally because I expect more to fail than go well and those that go well to make up for the failures. The environment for AFC and its hydrogen peers has fundamentally changed for the better, now it's up to AFC to execute which I'm confident they will. Of course the big difference between people like investors in afc and buffet is that for most of his career buffet has invested in large cap value stocks (not something anyone could accuse afc of being).
Scarpa, I agree there does come a time when progress is expected but I also think it's difficult to argue progress hasn't and isn't being made. As for SP movement whether due to negative sentiment or other reasons, as long as it's not because of a fundamental change for the worse in the company or the market it operates within then it's all just short-term noise. I'm sure the CME next week will be positive. Will it give everyone all the answers they seek, I doubt it, but I'm sure it will be positive.

I can understand why some who have been invested for a long time are frustrated. However, I also think it's too easy to let the length of time one has been invested influence perspective and thinking. With the best will in the world, prior to last year investing in a company like AFC was a more speculative gamble than most (one that I myself indulged in) as the wider environment and market simply wasn't there. I've drawn a line in the sand around this time last year and everything to do with AFC before then forgotten and ignored.
"The future for oil will go on for some time yet, due partially to the selfish idiots that have not changed to an EV and say they never will and will continue to pollute the planet and nearby pedestrians by running their existing cars into the ground."
With an attitude like that it's pretty clear that influencing people isn't your forte.

Massively out of his depth. You could tell what Mark Selby must have been thinking at times, particularly towards the end when the chairman asked them to name the key industry’s hydrogen could make an impact on - as if it hadn’t already spoken about. I also liked how Selby highlighted the fact that the key areas where the uk is essentially failing is civil service incompetence and policy.
I use Charles Stanley for the isa as it’s the only flexible stocks and shares isa I’m aware of. It’s not the cheapest for stock/IT/etf trades at £11.50 a pop but then I hold long term and trade infrequently so it doesn’t bother me. Always received good service.
Anyway, I'm not here to fall out with anyone. Lets agree to disagree on what action is considered trading and moving forwards I'll refrain from commenting on any of your posts directly. I'm sure that'll make a happier board for everyone.
"You can't tell me you wouldn't sell some shares you own if you saw a great very undervalued company to invest in and needed to free up some cash".
You're right, I've done it before. But if I had only held the company for a short period, thought it had excellent long term potential but sold most or all of my holding anyway to buy what I consider a more immediate potential gain with the view of getting back in to it down the line, I would also recognise that that is trading. Whether it is sold at a loss or a gain is irrelevant to whether the action is trading or not. You don't know a pump and dump is such until after the fact. You might think that that's what's happening but thinking and knowing are not the same. That's one reason amongst many why no one can consistently time the market.
"Maybe this board is dead because of attitudes like yours - constantly questioning the intent and actions of others."
As far as I'm aware I haven't questioned your intent or action. I've pointed out and commented on things you've said that don't make sense (such as equating lack of activity on this board as an indicator of lack of investors interested in 4D) or I've noted that something you've done is the opposite of what you've previously said.

Mark Selby (ceres cto) is one of the witnesses (Johnson Matthey and ITM also represented). The meeting is still ongoing but you can play it from the beginning. I have to say I'm always impressed by Mark when I hear him speak, he obviously knows his stuff and thinks deeply about the issues but is also no nonsense when giving his opinion.

It doesn't have anyone from AFC speaking (people from Johnson Matthey, ceres and ITM are the witnesses) but it's a relevant and interesting listen. Meeting is still going on but if you go to the below link you can play it from the beginning.
