    I don't understand this.

    Si: " You remember all those blackouts in Florida, early in fall? "

    The punisher: " After the hurricans. "

    Si: " Yeah, well. That time. Dynaco has the contract to supply most of the state's electricy. And what Dynaco realized was, when the grid got all fucked up by the weather and the powerlines came down, power was all of the sudden at a premium.
    And the value of the stock went way , way up "



    How can the stock of Dynaco went up, when the grid got all fucked up by the weather?

    The stock shouldn't have, rather Dynaco should have made a killing in the market. Energy is traded on a market (Enron basically set this all in motion). Since energy cannot be stored the value of it fluctuates wildly depending on the supply. If a grid gets fucked and there is a massive demand for energy then the price for it skyrockets. The company makes a killing.

    Look into what Enron and Reliant did to California, it helps to understand what he is talking about.

    you're right, you just missed when this conversation took place.

    it was after frank "rescued" Si from getting butt-fucked to death, Si told him how much money Dynaco made after the blackouts. Si was referring to the blackouts caused by the weather and how much money they made. Si then tells Frank about what-his-name's plan to stage another blackout, and have the company make a killing again.
