Shares of Capstone Rising

Shares of Capstone Turbine Corp (CPTC) are rising sharply this morning with high volume and gapped up with a gain of over 35% this morning. There is currently no news to cause this increase today and I will be digging deeper to find out what is going on. This is good news for the stock and also the portfolio. My holdings are now up over 50% in about 10 days.

If you were thinking of buying the stock now, you should wait till some news confirms this move.

Update at 12:15 EST: The only news I can find on the this move is from the Yahoo message boards and an expected announcement of Wall Mart working with United Technologies to supply the PureComfort CHP system for a store in Colorado. The UTX system utilizes the Capstone microturbine. I place zero reliance on message board posts and feel that this news is not the reason. I will keep digging.

Update at 1:25 EST: The Wall Mart story has been confirmed. At least the rumour of a potential big purchase by Wall Mart story has been confirmed. Well even message board posters can get it right sometimes.

Shares of Capstone Turbine Corp (CPTC) , a maker of microturbine generators powered by natural gas, jumped 36 percent on Tuesday on a television report that Wal-Mart Stores Inc. will place a big order for the company's machines. [ more ]

Update at 5:30 EST I should have known this was a Jim Cramer induced rally. He was the one that floated the Wall Mart rumor last night on his TV show. I don't watch him and don't like his hype. The hype is great for traders because it create volatility. So I fully expect this stock to settle back down over the coming weeks as large owners take profits. If you don't have a position in the stock and want to own it for the long term, I would wait and buy below the $3.00 level. I do believe in this company and I have no plans to sell my holdings, I just would not be a buyer at this price level.
