    Predictable Profit

    This stock is getting to easy to predict.

    OK, we are back near 12 so I'm buying more and by next month I'm sure I'll be selling in the high 13s. Easy money once again.

    It's a great company and I expect to climb into the 20s by the end of next year when the company is profitable, but for now we are stuck between these two points. Of course I never sell all my shares, as I also don't won't to be on the sidelines when they make another announcement of a JV or other innovation and miss a big bounce.

    • I'm not trying to promote it. It predictably trades between 12 and 14. So it's a great buy right now and, just as predictably, the recommended buys by are starting to come in at this price. Basically it's held captive as its recommended for a buy at 12 and downgraded near 14. We just have to step one step ahead of the sheep and ride the wave.

      Long term I am still positive and never sell all of my shares as I want LT capital gains treatment when it really takes off.

    • try not to turn szym in to a pump and dump?? lol

    • I added yesterday , let's hope the last higher low of 11.75 holds

    • OK, I bought back in today at $12.07, the current price right now. I expect a $1.75 profit per share by the end of next month if past trends continue. Easy money.

    • Let me clarify with the transcript:

      Jonathan said they have plenty of irons in the fire. What they're doing is being selective to get the best new capacity deal for Solazyme and investors (by investors that means those who own share, not short shares).

      Here's what he had to say:

      <<I mean, there’s a pretty significant upstream team here working on additional capacity and we have quite a few irons in the fire.

      What I would tell you is that you would expect late ‘12 or ‘13 announcements in this regard, it could be earlier. But there are a lot of companies that are in the process with us.>>

      <<Bunge as you know is shared while Roquette really is picking up all the capital and it’s obviously quicker to do to have relationship where the partners are putting in. The lower their percentage or the higher the percentage we’re putting in, the quicker the relationships are formed. That said I wouldn’t project with great specificity, but we expect partners will be leveraging their balance sheets with capacity with us moving forward.>>

    • I would not base my investing thesis on your logic although such event is always a possibility as can be said for so many other public companies. I dare call such vision pie in the sky at this time. There is still far too much uncertainty for even a larger player to risk that type of investment on what is still considered an unproven profitable result.

    • Why expect a new JV now?

      Company said to look for one at EOY or 1Q 2013.
