    Anyone Notice How Silent the Shorts have become on this Board?

    Methinks the 4.5 million short shares are trying to buy back; and very quietly because those longs on this board know who they are. The more the shorts squawk here the more nervous they reveal themselves. The Forbes article mentions the surprise fax MBLX got from ADM that they were terminating their joint venture. This should give pause to the legal firms fishing for money.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

      The emperor has no clothes on.

    • Casinomarket, the drop from $1.60 to $1.50 was partially assisted by a short and distort campaign as dozens of new names showed up on this board spreading misinformation (never refuting corrections provided by the longs) and saying anything they could to create fear and mistrust in the minds of new & existing investors… On the last day of that campaign one of the newer names here said something like this: “I’m done, we made money and are now out of here”. Since then the only name that has returned is ilo and he isn’t making one tenth the effort that the others made. If you think about it, a 10c drop on a $1.60 stock was a 6.25% gains for those who took advantage of it; that wasn’t a bad gain for about a week’s work. It will not surprise me if they come back because it is a well known fact that earnings are typically in the second week of March and Eno saves most of his news for earnings. Of course, now that Kenmare is on the team we could hear something before then (let's hope we do).

    • Fingers crossed

    • shorts have been consistently adding for months. I do not think they are covering. I doubt very much the neg posts on this board are from large short positions. Hedge funds have made a ton on this stocks drop & they are not making stupids rumor posts. BUT at some point they will need to cover. If this company is on track for a turnaround it will come at some point.

      • This nonsense about "shorts" is such horse##*t! They haven't made a "ton" of money in the past three months.. If someone was really good and shorted and covered a million shares and made 7cents, that is all of $70k. What big player is going to spend their time on this? I guess that might sound like a lot of moola to some on the board, but there just aren't Wall Street sharks circling around us here. It is neurotic navel-gazing. There isn't a plot. next we will be hearing about black helicopters and drones...

        Sentiment: Buy
