    I'm Thing Buyout Now

    Yes, anything is possible when you are in a high risk /reward company like this one. However, my current thought (subject to change) is this is just normal market fluctuation on a company that has had very possible news recently and stock is just now reacting - which for the market in the short term is not unusual. The stock has been undervalued assuming positive developments continue to happen. I think too much is being read into this move. I also think everyone should think more long term - what is the value of this company two years from now - think potentially +$100.00 as a goal - if you are happy with 30% moves you will never have a 10 bagger or even a 4 or 5 bagger. Of course there is the risk after a big move it will retrace but I wouldn't consider this so far a big move. The long term value isn't going to shoot up in a few days and then shoot right back down.

    Strong Summer for LTNC

    That would be huge. I don't see why they would have a problem at this point getting a conventional loan and being able to end the predatory convertible debt they have had to use. I suspect that is what is keeping the stock price down - not only keeps investors away but since it is mostly convertible at 58% of the stock price there is an incentive for these debt holders to drive the price down by selling a few shares or shorting so they can convert at a low price. Then they can make a plus 70% return if they turn around and sell immediately - not enough other buyers currently to stop them from doing this. However, I think if this is the case it will come to an end shortly.

    Lack of Interest in this stock

    I have followed this company for several years also - they do seem to be stagnated at this point although they did have some good progress from 2011 - 2013. I think the potential catalyst is if they get in the GNC company stores later this year and then that might give them a reason to complete the up listing they have talked about. I have bought and sold a couple times and made 10K or so - I do not have any shares currently but watching for any positive signs. From the 10K it seems they are a company of less than 10 people all located in a small one floor office. I just wonder how they stay up with competition as they don't have many resources for product development and barriers to entry are small. They apparently do have a good network of contract manufacturers and distributors. Additional communication on company strategy and plans would be helpful - what is the long range goals?

    New VP of Ops and Mfg

    I think the current stock price shows there are just limited investors in the micro cap area for companies starting to show big potential - market cap is too small for big investors and hedge funds to fool with. Risk also keeps the price down as more risk a small company could go under. However, the risk - reward for this company would seem to be better than a 50 billion company with 2% growth and a 25 P/E - I guess that is why the people who got in early on companies like Apple and Microsoft made a huge return. The inference from the new VP hire would be large production volumes are potentially in the near future - wouldn't need a new VP for one or two units per quarter it wouldn't seem.

    Dilution

    Capital to be used for exponential growth is not a bad thing, This most likely will be preferred stock so they can get away from the convertible debt they have been using. This is not unusual for a young high growth company. There aren't many companies with the growth they have had the last three years since startup. They are also well organized and managed and in the right place at the right time in my opinion. How many companies are a potential 60 bagger in three years from now - from a 6 million market cap to 360 million - from their own presentation on their web site? Assuming 50% dilution, that would still be a 40 bagger! That's the potential they are striving for and so far they are making it happen - no guarantees but high potential.

    A great example of how the free enterprise system is supposed to work - what a great story and great job they are doing. Not many chances to get in on a ground floor investment opportunity like this with a company already having great success - and at start up stock price.
