    I am concerned as an investor in Solar City because ever since we teamed up with HP the stock price has done nothing but drop. HP has a new CEO that came from ebay, and I remember before this CEO was running ebay things were running very good, but then this new CEO put all kinds of fee's on the people selling their stuff like a value fee, and nobody liked it.

    This new ebay CEO left and went to HP and ever since that company has been going down or failing their investors.

    Now this very same CEO that failed two companies is going to help Solar City? Like I said I am very concerned because ever since this CEO got involved with SCTY the stock price has been going down.

    Maybe my concerns are not to be taken very seriously, but I can only report what I have observed and this has not been very good for investors, so we need to keep watching very closely, and if it gets any worse I guess we know what we should do.
