Harrumph. Because Simmons is such a minority opinion, I have trouble swallowing what he says as anything near gospel. An interesting heretic but I would listen to other voices as well.

I too have to wonder if the sudden appearance of this board is a "top of the frothy market" type of phenomenon. I am in it for the long run, but we'll just have to see if the sense of urgency is permanent for most people. Look at how many marginal companies are being talked about, it reminds me of the fuel-cell bubble market of a couple years ago. While the technology is OK and the companies try to produce a product, the bubble resulted in unreal stock values, followed by a crash.

In general I would beware of the pitfalls of "story stocks".
