You are clearly on the money(stock up 200% since your sell recomendation), these pump and dumpers have purchased hundreds of thousands of shares personally in the open market for a long term hold and some trading.
Maybe you should read the Gustavson associates report again on a portion of Manas's property in Albania, 3 billion barrels in place or better. Their best case scenario makes that portion of Manas's Albania property worth $324/ share based on $50 oil. Oh yeah and thats not the property that major Santos is investing tens of millions into.
Here's a client list from Gustavson: Exxon, Chase, US Department of Defense, Concoco,Marathon, etc, etc, etc.
Yeah these guys at Gustavson are going to risk their reputation pumping Manas as well, that makes sense.
Yes, they pay us as you can see from our disclosure you kindly posted, and we're proud to have them as our client.
