Billch-

Where are you located? I've spoken to several people in the greater Los Angeles area that have heard a good deal of GMTN ads.

Reasons why it will do well *** MUST READ ***
10. First of its kind
9. To fund other operations
8. Energy sector already beaten up, so downside somewhat limited
7. Heard the ipo to be priced around $10 - can't go much lower (EDGR has, but EDGR do well ultimately)
6. Business model - lower cost of distribution
5. Business model - energy 'portal'
4. Business model - partnerships with on-line related, affiliated , complementary companies
3. Earth & consumer friendly -- an informational mechanism
2. If you build it, they will come
1. The Wyly family is building it - putting $80 million in. This family has bucks and are winners!

I will get every dman share I can get!!

I just started using IPO Edge on www.quote.com so I don't
have a feel for how good they are at predicting things. But
they're report on GMTN is favorable:

Bob,IPO Edge also gives Red Hat a MINUS 4 (with MINUS 5 their WORST POSSIBLE rating): if you read the Red Hat thread herein, it would seem that either the general investor sensibility of Silicon folks is totally off base . . . or else IPO Edge is? Anybody out there know more about them, and why their assessments seem so contrary to those one finds here? (Kind of like comparing Motley Fool to Barrons . . . as the Fools themselves just did in their take on Barrons' "Amazon.Bomb" cover story. Not that both don't have their uses, which hones my point: to what uses can IPO Edge be put?)

Hey Won,
Thanks for Greenmountain specs, GMTN looks interesting. I have a position in Keystone KESE they seem to have a lot in common. I was just out in LA and San Diego seems to be plenty of expansion.

Heres a little information for you Dot.
Checkout the sponsor of this celebration and look at the individuals that attended.
Should be an interesting IPO, to say the least.

Take care

Quote.com's ratings look to be based on empirical data related to the underwriter and co-underwriters. It looks to be a mathematical rating only. In other words, anything underwritten by Goldman Sachs will have a good rating; anything underwritten by one of the smaller Investment banks with a poor track record will not. Think of it as a power rating. GS is less likely to be the underwriter on losers and they have enough institutional leverage to support the markets of the so-so companies. Some of these Investment banks just don't have the rolodexes, clientele, capital, and pull on the market to support some of these IPOs. Remember, every time a person flips his shares, the market maker has to buy those shares if they want to protect the price. Also remember that quite a bit of their compensation is tied to their ability to overallocate shares for themselves at the IPO price.

I think GS will guarantee a succesful IPO for GMTN, however, whether that holds for 30 days (my criteria) is the issue.

So now the offering price range has been lowered and they've
halved the number of shares. Obviously demand wasn't what
was expected. Will this discount strategy pay off and attract
new interest, or is this just clearly a dud?

i glanced at the Prospectus a couple of weeks ago and figured there would be little interest in the IPO. It is not really a 'net company and deregulation in the electric industry is state by state and moving slowly.

Maybe i'd buy 100 shares @$3 to get that warm fuzzy feeling of doing something Green.
