    Thank You

    Yet again, its like clockwork. Thanks for letting me double down again from 3.22. I'll sell half at 3.50 again and double down at $3.10 or less if it hits that again before the late spring run up after the majority of shorts have held their position for over 12 months.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • I sold my highest block for tax loss selling on 12/28/12 so my 30 day wash rule is no longer a factor.

      Eh, I'll pass at this time. The market looks extended. Will this go up as the market retreats? I guess stranger things have happened. I still have not heard back from IR after emailing them a 2nd time yesterday. I still hold over 90% of the stinking bag of $hit. Why add more when all I hear is crickets and all I see is terrible corporate governance with a Sr. Management team that buys with both hands only when the shares are free, i.e. they use other people's money only.

      Show me something GTAT management.

      Earn your ridiculous compensation compared to what you actually delivery, i.e. bags of $hit for all of us longs.

      • If you play GTAT thinking it will follow the general market, then you are mistaken. This stock is heavily manipulated on a week to week basis and will not follow the general market. The market has done nothing but go up since GTAT hit 3.40s, during that time GTAT kept falling....

      • Well at least I got a reply from IR, sort of. His email acknowledged my 2nd email which was asking about a response to my first email.

        He said he will get back to me shortly. I imagine they are getting quite a few calls and emails and if those contacts are like mine, they probably are working them through their legal department to ensure they are giving the pat answers which won't get them in trouble later.

        If I remember correctly, I asked about:

        1. What the 3 price targets are for the RSU's

        2. If RSU's are awarded based on pure dollar amount or how they are awarded, i.e. $1M worth etc,. i.e. is Management being awarded more shares due to the low stock price.

        3. Why was the $100M stock buyback done at nearly $8? Did Management meet any incentives as a result of this buyback?

        I also mentioned that I thought the company needs better corporate governance to align Management with the shareholders.

        I also asked if while cutting worker bee types and a few higher level Manager's that they consider cutting the Management's pay significantly, especially given the generous stock based compensation. Not that I was expecting this but I figured I would ask.
