I've made the same observation about Q1 usually being very good, although share price often starts rising in Nov. or Dec. I want to believe this stock will finally make some lasting gains. It's been about 5 years of general disappointment with a few sprinkles of excitement for me. I can't guess to know where it will go next, but I have to think that the wrinkles should be getting ironed out with the Alberta production, which should translate to big profits down the road. I have a nagging feeling though that the lack of production amount information is an effort to hide something up there in Canada. In the meantime, hopefully the low price of oil lately will at least keep us in the black.
Lack of production data from Taber is deliberate and will continue indefinitely - FSI is pioneering this "greenest" method of production and does not want to give out any info. to potential competitors, Re: Chinese.
Mostly just wishful thinking. But I noticed that FSI stock usually is low at the end of the calendar year, and bounces back as the new year progresses. Also, I think management will eventaually work out any bugs in the new manufacturing facility and the new facility will ultimatley be a profitable operation.
