While I'm not lying, you are correct in that I did have more recognized loss than the $7,800. I was looking only at 2014 thinking I had sold out then, but I did have a few thousand more in losses in 2015 to sell the remaining position from a different account, which is why I get two checks. So I didn't make out as good as I thought, but still nice to receive an unexpected $3,100. Of course I have to pay taxes on that now.
Don't expect a company, especially one that has very few press releases as it is, respond to every change in the market with a press release to ease your angst. Google has this thing, and probably a hundred other private or public companies have some other idea that most likely will lead to nothing.
I think most investors, at least I can speak for myself, just want ECTE to be successful enough to reach a certain price point. Where they are 5 years from now, 10 years from now, I don't care.
