Here's an excerpt:
I see the most potential in the fermentation method once it is operational on an industrial scale. This process is where I believe the real money can be made, and if the fermentation method proves successful, Stevia First might be primed for a large company to buy it out. Being a small development company, the stock has bounced up and down depending on news or lack of news, which accounts for its rise earlier this year to $2.75 per share and back down into the mid $0.20s. Today, the stock trades in the low $0.40 range. The company recently secured $500,000 in financing to move forward and expand on its research and development operations. Part of the terms of the recent financing deal was a lock up period. As such, over 50% of the company's shares may not be sold until 2014. This is a positive development for those considering an investment in Stevia First Corporation. Though any small development company is a high risk investment and one should do their research before investing, Stevia First appears to have a much higher upside potential for a pure stevia play, especially if its fermentation based process is successful and the giant bottlers or producers take notice.
