There was a 400/1 reverse split. Stock is now trading at about 3.10. Read the SEC filings about the re-org to understand what happened. This was known months ago. If you had 12.K you should now have 31 shares.
Just before re-org mkt cap was 393M x .015 = 6M.
After re-org 50M x 3.2 = 160M. Does removal of debt justify a 26x increase in mkt cap? IMO no way.
I expect this to slide downwards to maybe 1.00. Still cash issues and low metal prices. USD CAD 1.30 will help but IMO not enough. Future is bleak.
Really confused about the rights offering. PALDD (new stock) closed at 3.72 USD (4.87 CAD). Either is well below the rights exercise price 5.97 (USD or CAD?). These rights expire in 21 days. Why did BAM do this strange part of the deal? They just could have bought 50M worth of stock and get back 25M in bridge repayment. Did they grossly overestimate what the new stock would trade at? Or were the rights part of a carrot to the db and common holders to get them to agree to the deal? With the rights expiring in 21 days they won't even get to see another qtr report before they expire. Did they short the stock and used the rights as insurance? Strange.
"In this environment would 5% price drop trigger serious consideration ?"
No. A 5% increase in USD/EUR would drop metal prices by 5 without any change in the underlying (IMO LT bearish) demand scenario.
What does matter? The fact that it was once 19 and now under 9 is not enough for me. Until reasons it is under 9 go away (low metal prices and unresolved labor issues) "I'm out". Cheap on the way down is not cheap. I have never found that buying stocks that have just hit 52 week low a fruitful approach. If I think a specific price is attractive I will buy at that price as it rises through that price not as it goes down through that price. I get the same price but have the momentum on my side. I would rather average up than down but that's just my style. But GL.
"the company doesn't have any debts"
really? They have about 564M of debt.
If you are going to make up "facts" don't do it on any so easily verified.
Presentation also states that 2 years needed to go from lab to production scale. I did not see any cost estimates on the processing infrastructure needed and capacity vs cost. I think it is fair to say that production is at least 3 years away.
Timing vs Gigafactory
"Tesla broke ground on the Gigafactory in June 2014 outside Sparks, Nevada, and we expect to begin cell production in 2017. By 2020, the Gigafactory will reach full capacity"
I agree I am not always correct. I was bearish on the run from 750-900 but my feelings are based on fundamentals and global trends (on the demand side) and I did not anticipate the two new SA TEF gobbling up 1.3Moz. That is a huge percentage of the annual mined output. Once they were fully loaded it ended the runup. Down now 33% from 900. I see no relief in sight. I have no technical call since chart under 600 is pretty uninformative - just a runup from 400.
There is a reverse 400:1 split. When it is effective you will see the price "jump" to maybe $6.00 but you will have only 1/400 of the shares you now have.There is no buy out. IMO no going up from here - I don't think NAP can make money at these metal prices even with the BAM interest no longer a burden.
At Schwab if I put in a STOP LOSS that order is monitored internally by Schwab computers - if it hits the stop price Schwab computer submits the order as a market order. The MM has no idea I have a stop. This prevents MM from "looking" for stops - in my case there is nothing for him to see.
By the way volume was only 1/4 of 1% of outstanding shares. With 122K shares it was quite a ride for me. I would expect a climb back over the next few days.

Note: This article was originally published on October 27, 2010, but with Jobs' newly announced leave of absence, we thought it was appropriate to revisit what he's helped Apple accomplish.
Just 13 years ago, Apple was on the verge of bankruptcy. (=1997)
But then – worried that it would be viewed as a monopoly without competition from Apple – Microsoft came to Apple's rescue with a $150 million investment.
Had that not happened the world may never have seen iPods, iPads, iPhones or iMacs.
But that was just the start of Apple's return to glory, the greatest corporate comeback story of all time, led by Steve Jobs.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs has just walked on stage at the All Things D (in 2010)conference and within a few moments revealed what many thought but weren’t sure of…
Exactly how bad a state was Apple ten years ago when Jobs took over?
In Jobs’ own words:
“We were 90 days from going bankrupt.”
From that to surpassing Microsoft as the world’s largest technology company in phenomenal by any standard.
In response to the landmark, Jobs says:
“It’s sort of surreal. It’s a little surreal.”
I’m sure. Especially considering Apple might only be around due to a $150M investment by MSFT in 1997… well what can you say.
"Canadian Miners wiping out American's retirement accounts."
Junior miners (Canadian or otherwise) don't belong in retirement account to begin with.
" -80% on no news"
But with 10-15% stop loss 80% doesn't matter.
