    bamich, one can't compare the likes of DDD, XONE (3-D printers) or any other stock, MTLS is a different bird in the 3-D printers. The way & why MTLS Daily changes (note "Opening & Closing" PPS) The PPS can change (w/no Vol at any time because of the Market Makers (computers set the Bid/Ask at their whim, most of the big swings happen early am & late pm, ) a trade is made for the guys lunch money. Some day when more shares are available for trading this should change, until then we have to live with this situation (sad but true) we have, unless the Company whats to pursue the mater at hand..
    I've also accumulated 2x the shares you have over time, MTLS is a very well run company, hope in 2 years we will reap a healthy profit. GLTA & hold, Count.

    Sentiment: Hold

    I bought my WMC 1K shares for an avg of $9.66 Ea. though i'm disappointed at the decline i'm hopeful the Officers ( I.E Mr. Gavin Lewis James, Chief Executive/ Director & President) and all the BOD will act in the interest of the shareholders and not their own pockets, this shall truly be disappointing & if L. Manson does NOT step in a suit shall surely FOLLOW ! !

    ARR is a joke, use to be $7.50 before the Rev Split of 8 to 1 and sole Preferred (2) shares for total dilution for the A shares, The value & Div has pushed the value of ARR to junk value, .WMC also need to clean house from the top end of Executive personal.

    Part 2. nformation below) for the first quarter of 2016 was $3.8 million as compared to $35.6 million in the first quarter of 2015. Segment profit in the first quarter of 2016 decreased primarily due to the net effects of lower average TiO(2) selling prices, lower raw material and other production costs (including cost savings resulting from workforce reductions implemented in 2015 reflected in both cost of sales and other operating expenses), and higher sales and production volumes. We operated our production facilities at overall average capacity utilization rates of 93% and 97% in the first quarter of 2015 and 2016, respectively. Our production capacity utilization in the first quarter of 2015 was impacted by the implementation of certain productivity-enhancing improvement projects at certain facilities, as well as necessary improvements to ensure continued compliance with our permit regulations, which resulted in longer-than- normal maintenance shutdowns in some instances. Fluctuations in currency exchange rates also affected segment profit comparisons, which increased segment profit by approximately $7 million.

    Other operating income, net in the first quarter of 2016 includes an insurance settlement gain of $2.0 million ($1.5 million, or $.01 per share, net of income tax expense) related to a 2014 business interruption claim.

    DALLAS, TEXAS.May 6, 2016.Kronos Worldwide, Inc. today reported a net loss for the first quarter of 2016 of $3.8 million, or $.03 per share, compared to net income of $18.4 million, or $.16 per share, in the first quarter of 2015. We reported a net loss in the first quarter of 2016 primarily due to a loss from operations in 2016 resulting from the unfavorable effects of lower average selling prices, partially offset by lower manufacturing and other production costs (primarily raw materials) and higher sales and production volumes, as discussed further below.

    Net sales of $318.4 million in the first quarter of 2016 were $46.7 million, or 13% lower than in the first quarter of 2015 primarily due to lower average TiO(2) selling prices, partially offset by higher sales volumes. The Company's average TiO(2) selling prices were 14% lower in the first quarter of 2016 as compared to the first quarter of 2015. The Company's average selling prices at the end of the first quarter of 2016 were 1% lower than at the end of 2015, with slightly lower prices in certain European and North American markets, partially offset by higher prices in certain export markets, which are historically more volatile from period to period due to the variability of product grade and customer mix. TiO(2) sales volumes for the first quarter of 2016 increased 5% as compared to the first quarter of 2015, with higher volumes in European and export markets. Kronos' sales volumes in the first quarter of 2016 set a new record for a first quarter. Fluctuations in currency exchange rates (primarily the euro) also affected net sales comparisons, decreasing net sales by approximately $11 million as compared to the first quarter of 2015. The table at the end of this press release summarizes how each of these items impacted the overall decrease in sales. The Company's TiO(2) segment profit (see description of non-GAAP .

    They did resolve that missing director issue on the vote on Dec. 2015. just not showing up on the records yet, i doubt that will help the stock price much (if any) in the next 2-3 qtrs. I'm already in for an average of $34 per share. i'll just wait it out as dead $$, maybe buy another 800 to round it up to 2K number held, if it goes down to mid $26.00. GLTA.

    Sentiment: Hold

    Hi Temp, nice to see you again, i've moved on and out of (& never again) any Chinese stocks. After a hefty $52K loss in this mistaken investment in chop (CHOP warrants killed me), like all of us that caught in that trap. I've since recovered my losses with other stocks (USA) mostly (one in Belgian MTLS), OVTI, etc, on a good note i'm taking a 28 day cruise to the 4 Hawaiian Is Samoa, Morie,and Tahiti Is. So i'll be away form all trades etc.

    Myself as CHOP goes, i think they will take it Private thru Bank R. and everyone gets nothing China is so inept on reproting their numbers and no PR that they should NOT listed be in the US markets.

    Keep in touch as we can maybe share some stock info, perhaps?
    Great Trades to you from AZ on the Colorado River, Count.

  • Or maybe issue 10 Million Warrants ? They haven't tried that for a few years, maybe the old investors want to try that way? From the old stock price the value has dropped to equal to about $0.02 per old IPO price. Total scam from the start. Mismanaged from the start ! !
