Capstone Turbine (CPST): up on news of lucrative California contract.

Capstone Turbine is a leading global manufacturer of “clean tech” micro-turbines, used in onsite power generation.

Their stock shot up 10% today after announcing the purchase of two of their C1000 turbines by a California oil/gas drilling site. Like many drilling sites, this one is remotely located, with no access to the permanent electric grid.

CPST’s turbine can be powered directly from the natural gas extracted alongside oil, creating an efficient power source for drilling operations. Access to a clean, onsite power generation source is essential in California, which maintains some of the strictest air quality standards in the world.

Nova Lifestyle (NVFY): plummets on ill-received blockchain venture.

Blockchain ventures are white hot, frequently earning spots on our Top Performer blog in recent months.

We continue to emphasize that NewsQuantified offers profitable options for blockchain champions and skeptics. Blockchain, like any emerging sector, is high-risk, high-reward.

We saw the downside of that risk on today’s trading session: NVFY tried to jump on the blockchain train but plummeted on the announcement of their new blockchain deployment.

Nova Lifestyle is a leading manufacturer of home goods and furniture. Their blockchain, dubbed iDesign, is billed as a unique platform for linking customers with the home good design process.

Investors were skeptical of a furniture store blockchain and sold the stock to the tune of 12% losses at the time of this writing.
