The SP keeps going lower, and they will probably cut the dividend to help pay for improvements and debt payments.
When they cut the dividend, the SP would probably drop even more.
So wait to accumulate ?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
The SP action is nice, but uncommon, strange and unexplained.
I sure would like to know what's going on with the unusual climb in the SP !
I only have shares left in my IRA with a cost of $3.29.
I sold the shares in my taxable account last year for $4.06 each. My cost was only $1.96.
Did anyone see something that would create a demand on the buy side?
Since they have kept pushing out the mining date, it seems evident that they don't have and can't secure the money it would take to open the mine.
So they keep diluting the existing shares, by issuing new ones to fund their prtend drill programs, that were supposedly completed years ago.
These fake programs gives them an excuse to keep an office open and to draw their salaries and stock options.
It seems that Canada doesn't investigate scam artists like Ken McSteal like they do in the USA.
Yeah, like they have been claiming to do for years.
Ken McSteel and his BOD just keep their SGF Scam running in circles so they can continue to milk it for their unearned paychecks and option to pay their bills.
I guess it beats working a real job, where effort and results are expected?
Bump this to above the Spam Posts
I don't see how the stock would go above $8, being that we'll receive $8 on May 8th for every share that we own and then the shares are canceled.
I don't understand why so many shares traded hands today, unless the funds bailed and there were shorts that needed to cover ?
I can't understand why the SP remained below $7.85 for so long, even after they announced they would
issue a final dividend of 11.25 cents per share.
It was almost a sure thing return for a short time hold.
I bought another 14,000 shares as recently as 4-8-15 at $7.82.
With the difference between my purchase price and the buyout at $8, plus the dividend of 11.25 cents, I'm making an additional $4092 on just those additional 14,000 shares.
That's almost a 3.74% return for owning those shares for only one month !
I wish I could find more deals like that !
Are you sure that people are still "buying" options ?
Maybe some people are trying to sell options, but I don't know why anyone would buy them.
After May 8th, TLM shares will worth ZERO and the SH's will get $8 cash for every share they owned.

Thanks for posting this, Jordie.
I don't know why starteam003 posted the same question after you posted this info, as your info seems to point to the answer that he/she was supposedly seeking.
Thanks again !
I sold all of the BYDDF that I had in my taxable account in December.
I was going to sell all of the BYDDF shares in my IRA today, but the bid is for less shares than I was going to sell, and the volume is only 8,694 so far.
It doesn't look like there is very much interest in this stock, especially today..

BYD Plans to Double Energy-Storage Station Sales in 2015
BYD Co., the Chinese car maker partially owned by Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc., said it expects to double deliveries of energy-storage products this year amid rising global demand.
BYD delivered energy-storage units last year with a capacity to store 57 megawatt hours -- enough to power industrial parks -- according to an e-mailed statement. Besides domestic sales, BYD exports storage units to markets including the U.S., Germany, Japan and Australia, the company said.
Ranging in size from residential units to stations for industrial use, companies like BYD are developing storage products to solve a key problem with electricity distribution: meeting demand that fluctuates throughout the day with a relatively fixed supply. These devices also help ensure a continuous supply from renewable energy sources such as solar and wind, whose output can’t be controlled.
“Like other companies doing business in the sector, BYD is still in an early exploratory stage and still has a long way to go,” said Harry Chen, an analyst at Guotai Junan Securities Co. in Shenzhen, China. “It’s unclear how this business will contribute to BYD’s overall profitability.”
BYD fell as much as 2.7 percent before trading 2.1 percent lower at 60.05 yuan as of 10:58 a.m. in Shenzhen. The benchmark Shanghai Composite Index gained 1.4 percent.
Tesla Motor Inc.’s shares rose after Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk’s Twitter posting led to speculation that the company will unveil stationary storage batteries for residential customers on April 30. SolarCity Corp., where Musk is chairman, has installed Tesla batteries at 13 Wal-Mart Stores Inc. outlets in California.
BYD completed a ferrous-battery energy storage station in Shenzhen last year, with enough capacity to allow an industrial park to manage and adjust its power needs.
BYD is far ahead in battery technology? That's what we have been led to believe for years.
If BYD has technology and a cost factor that is superior to other companies, I would assume that another company would buy out the battery division or technology and patents from BYD.
Maybe we should write to Elon Musk and ask why he doesn't make a bid for BYD, or to Warren Buffet to make a bid for Tesla and their battery business ?
