hi steadfast7-
i suspect there a few short term reasons npw is tanking right now. first, they formerly purchased their power from enron. any company associated in any way with enron is suffering (a value?) right now. second, while energy prices are low, the entire sector suffers. again, this presents excellent opportunities for those not short sighted. third, at the beginning of a recovery, the large caps tend to lead the charge. as investors get warm and fuzzy that we are actually not all financialy doomed, they will return to the low caps which will then tend to outperform the market as a whole. so npw has some strikes against it because it is an energy low cap formerly associated with enron. i still think my purchase at 1.18 was a good long term investment. remember that this is a very speculative stock/company. i purchased npw because i see vision and balls in their management team, but while the potential for 1000% gains is possible, we could all loose it all.
