    Short manipulation, nothing more.

    If you look on level 2, this is shorts manipulating. Someone is throwing 100,000 share sell orders about $.05 above the mkt to weigh on the stock fall. This could be the capitulation day. This company is viable and has recently, within last several days, rec'd $75,000,000 (see SEC filing). Clean energy is always a gamble, but this stock is getting to be a good risk/reward in the $1.60 range. Could easily double from here with limited downside in my opinion.

    Furthermore, my company, GOL Linhas is looking to make a major investment into biojetfuel. Probably not this company as they have not perfected the process, but GEVO or AMRS could be possible eventually.

    • I see no such SEC filing where are you seeing that they recv'd an additional $75M, the only filing I see was related to their taking down the last $10M under the previous amendment. IMO if the company had actually received a fresh influx of cash you would have seen a PR from the company touting a significant event.

    • They have not received $75 million. They drew down the last $10 million on a $125 million facility that had previously been $75 million. They have tapped out their lines. Maybe they can raise additional funds, maybe they can't. I'm honestly not in a position to evaluate the issue but I'm pretty sure you aren't either.

      Should also mention that the debt carries a 16% interest rate plus warrants, plus a 9% fee at the end of term so the effective interest rate is actually much much higher. Bottom-line, they are borrowing at a rate much higher than what a credit card advance would carry so keep an eye on your risk. This is not a place to make a big bet.
