As much as anyone here I'm afraid. Maybe the grand insider buys will make the difference? You know, the ones you point out without mentioning their immense value of a few hundred $? At this price point, the CEO can buy 1000 shares with about an hrs worth of his annual compensation.
Now that's a good idea. Already being done anyway, might as well do it right. They've been at this for years, in the hopes of a few scraps in the form of grants and loans. Investors have given up hope that the value of the scene and patent portfolio will ever be realized by CEREs Inc. Either sell it or jump into a side business that will help sustain while the research and field trials #$%$ for God knows how much longer before monetization.
The last 4 filings in the last 2 days total insider purchases of 8000 shares, approx $1700.00. Just keeping it real. Better than nothing, but not by much. Could be guilt purchases, lol. Anyway, today was mildly encouraging.
No, do some homework. A new secondary, at say $0.10, would pretty much dilute them and all existing shareholders into insignificance, but a RS is just that, it is not dilution.
No idea, perhaps a RS, perhaps OTC is better for a company like this anyway. In any event, looks like it'll break .20 today for the first time.
I dunno, this small company has a $1/2M CEO. Throwing $22K at insider purchase for 100K shares wouldn't have been much of a burden. But less than $500? It's almost insulting. These are all-time lows, it doesn't get better (or worse) than this. Well, I guess it could.
Sorry, Nas site shows it, but not SEC site? Anyway, 2000 shares is hardly worthy of a filing. Less that $500. Not exactly a big gamble.
This is interesting....Brazil is countering lower oil with a tax, to keep Ethanol competitive.
Cosan SA Industria & Comercio, co-owner of the world’s largest sugarcane processor with Royal Dutch Shell Plc, advanced the most in a month as Brazil’s plan to boost gasoline taxes bolstered the outlook for ethanol use.
The company controlled by billionaire Rubens Ometto surged 8 percent to 26.56 reais in the biggest intraday gain since Dec. 17 before climbing 4.4 percent as of 3:20 p.m. in Sao Paulo. Sao Martinho SA increased 5.1 percent to 34.59 reais, and Tereos Internacional gained 2.8 percent to 1.10 reais.
Higher gasoline taxes will allow ethanol producers to raise prices by as much as 15.4 centavos per liter, according to Plinio Nastari, the founder of sugar and ethanol consultancy Datagro in Sao Paulo. Finance Minister Joaquim Levy announced Monday after the close of markets that Brazil will resume collection of the so-called Cide tax and increase the PIS/Cofins tax on gasoline as part of an effort to reduce budget deficits. In Brazil, most cars can run on gasoline or ethanol.
“Brazil’s policy support is rising for biofuel producers,” James Evans, a clean-energy analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence, said in a research report Tuesday.
The increase in gasoline taxes will boost Sao Martinho’s yearly earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization by 100 million reais ($38 million), Itau BBA analysts Giovana Araujo and Antonio Barreto said in a research report Tuesday.
“That’s a move in the right direction,” Elizabeth Farina, the head of ethanol producers group Unica, told journalists in Sao Paulo. “That’s going to make ethanol more competitive.”
"Plantings were recently completed and preliminary performance observations will be available by the end of the year."
End of the year was a month ago. Has there been any followup?
No hope so they are crashing the plane...into SHs. Actually, there is hope, sell! I'm sure the sale won't realize the dreams they may have had a few years ago, but better than nothing, and nothing is almost here.
The Saudis will love this, another Shia government on its doorstep. ISIS will soon be launching regular attacks along the Saudi frontier with Iraq if last week's incident is any indication. Chickens coming home to poop! One way or another, oil is going to go much higher. This Saudi inspired (and US sanctioned) cratering is temporary. The spill over effects of trying to hurt Iran, Russia, Venezuela (especially Iran where Saudi is concerned) are much greater than predicted. The Saudis will change their tune on production very soon.
Shanghai guided down by new government restrictions on borrowing to buy equities. Actually a kind of admission by the CPC in Beijing that they are scared, really scared.
Let me the first to blame it on the labour unions. Or maybe it's the fact they no longer exist, at least not in America. Nawhhh, that's silly. I can't believe how much better everything has gotten for the average Joe since unions were give a fatal blow during the Reagan years after a decade of jabs. Uncanny. Thank God for the 1%. They should control 99% of wealth, they've all worked so hard to capture all the profits from a parabolic rise in productivity. I mean, writing legislation to be rubber stamped by a farcical congress is tough stuff. Lawyers to hire, pockets to line, the drudgery never ends. Can't wait to see how much better things get in a decade when the last vestiges of any kind of labour movement are crushed and labour laws repealed entirely.
Looks like you have silent majority support! 13 thumbs up enough? Good letter, here's hoping Artal and other large holders are delivering the same message, in person. Artal for one has lost 80% of their investment in 9 months.
Nice. I've already sent an email to that effect, but nowhere near as well written. Might be worth mentioning that their current trajectory will mean another capital raise soon, likely in the pennies, which would essentially wipe out current SHs. It would be effectively BK for existing SHs. It's all implied in your letter though. Good stuff.
