    Cash down to around $2M

    No doubt that buying this stock is "gambling" and I would likely lose what I invest. However, if it hits 50 cents within next 5 days, I'm pretty sure I would start gambling. I have to believe the IP is worth at least $20M, and announcement that someone has agreed to purchase MBLX for $X is imminent. Obviously, this is just speculation on my part.

    Sentiment: Sell

  • ilovepelosi by ilovepelosi Jul 15, 2014 8:12 PM Flag

    The longs have got to be sick to their stomach. I lost my small fortune in MBLX when stock got down to around $5 and margin cals forced the sale of all my remaining shares. Thank god for that margin call, else I would have a second mortgage on my house and would have many ulcers.

    Changing sentiment from Strong Sell to Sell. Market cap is getting low enough where I think MBLX will be sold in near future. MBLX has no cash, will likely not be able to raise any capital given their pathetic track record, and will be forced to sell to the highest bidder. Wish I knew what their IP was really worth. Eno would have you believe it was worth a billion dollars. Based upon customers and annual revenue, some could argue that the IP is only worth around $5 million. I think it's probably worth around $20M to $40M. Have nothing to base that on. Just pure speculation.

    The big question is what is the value of their IP. Another drop like today, and it might just be time to gamble a little.

    I can assure you that dagiw is not me. Based upon his postings and timing for shorting the stock, he's much more experienced and sophisticated in buying and selling stocks than I am. He's clearly the most intelligent investor on this board. And it's not even close.

    Anyone who is still long on this stock is either a gambler who is willing to lose it all, has insider information, or is a complete a moron. Based upon the postings on this message board, with exception of dagiw, I'm pretty sure it's the latter. Very high probability, in my opinion, that MBLX will be sold to highest bidder. They have no negotiation leverage, and absolutely no credibility in the marketplace given their pathetic track history.

    Laurence Alexander

    Laurence Alexander reduced his stock price target for MBLX from $32 down to $14 back on Mar 17, 2008. Some questioned why the stock price target would be lowered from $32. Hard to believe some of those that were long back then are still long today with "strong buy" with the price at 77 cents. Over 6 years later, and around $400 million of cash burned. Each day that passes without financing announced increases the odds that MBLX will soon be sold to highest bidder. Is their technology worth $5M? $10M? $20M? Could it be worth as much as $50M?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Last earnings release: "However, if the Company is unable to raise additional funds by the end of June 2014, it will be forced to delay, scale back or otherwise modify its business and manufacturing plans, sales and marketing efforts, research and development activities and other operations, and/or pursue strategic alternatives.The Company's present capital resources are not sufficient to fund its planned operations for a twelve month period, and therefore, raise SUBSTANTIAL doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern."

    If no press release before market closes on Monday, stock should drop significantly at close and into after hours. The problem with what MBLX peddles is that it can take years for any new prospective customer to test the long term durability and viability of their product. I'm sure they have many customers that tell them they love the product, but they can't make any firm commitments until they test it over a period of many months, if not years.

    I personally think MBLX will announce some type of financing before end of Monday, else the new CEO is incompetent. Why would he specifically state by end of June when he has enough cash to last well into August? Huge volumes on Monday and significant drop in the price could also signal company selling additional shares to raise capital.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    MBLX Will Break $1.00 Today

    I marked your post, as you requested us all to do, so that I could come back tonight to see how smart you were. Investing in MBLX is like putting your money in a slot machine. Odds are very high that you will lose based upon all the facts in the public domain. Only someone with insider information would be buying MBLX now, otherwise a fool.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Longs better hope they finally have their first REAL commercial customer. Play time is over. About to be put on life support with massive dilution if no credible customer.

    MBLX has No debt,

    by leogcarrolastopper May 31, 2014 10:20 PM
    ilovepelosi ilovepelosi Jun 1, 2014 8:11 AM Flag

    Now only $6 million in cash. Less than $5 million in annual revenue, and those customers are paying a price that is less than what it cost MBLX to produce. Over $600 million invested in past few years, yet no commercial customers to speak of. ADM was JV partner that dumped MBLX couple years ago and wrote off over $400 million investment in MBLX. After ADM gave MBLX the finger and told them to take their worthless patents and management team somewhere else, MBLX couldn't find anybody else to manufacture their snake oil - except for a nearly bankrupt company in the nearly bankupt country of Spain. MBLX invested around $3 million in trying to get the nearly bankrupt company to manufacture their snake oil, but company shut their doors. MBLX CEO was fired earlier this year. New CEO is desperately trying to find financing as MBLX will be out of cash in about 2 months. CEO says they need to raise $50 million in cash, and said they should have at least phase 1 of the financing before end of June. Market cap only around $28 million, and company burning over $6 million of cash each quarter. Company has begun to say that MBLX may no longer be a going concern if they can't raise capital. Risk of bankruptcy is real.

    If you like to gamble and are prepared to lose your money, MBLX might be the stock for you. Highly speculative. They have many patents, but must not be worth much given market cap is only $28 million and no one has tried to buy the company. MASSIVE dilution likely coming in the very near future.

    If you're looking for advice from those posting on this message board, you're looking in the wrong place. Normey would be considered the "expert" on this board if you want to hear the bullish perspective. He's been posting on this message board for years, and has been long MBLX since it was over $20. He's been consistently wrong about the stock price for many years.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    I was once a fool and bought MBLX because I believed Eno. I found out he never told the truth and lost my #$%$. I didn't have history to study to conclude Eno was a liar. You have plenty of history, yet still go long. I don't move on because I want to try and recoup my money one day, and keep fools from wasting their money on this POS stock like I did. Why be so foolish?

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    I think you and readywilling are refusing to do your homework and look at the facts. Anyone who buys this stock after doing their homework is either an idiot, has insider information, or thinks gambling is a good investment. It really doesn't get any easier than this stock. You don't buy it until they announce something significant that is verifiable. You may miss a $1 - $2 pop, but there will be plenty of time to ride it much higher if it truly has the game changing technology some of you think it does.

    MBLX may have lots of patents, but there are millions of patents that never get monetized. No one wants to buy the MBLX technology for the price they are charging.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • ilovepelosi ilovepelosi May 23, 2014 11:02 AM Flag

    The tech is worth millions? Yet no one wants to buy it. There's been over $600 million invested in MBLX over past few years, including a blue chip partner like ADM, yet they're almost out of cash and have less than $5 million in annual revenue. Hmmmmmm. All of the potential customers must not be as smart as you. Hmmmmmmm. Perhaps you should join the Business Development team at MBLX , and tell them you'll work on commission to quickly monetize their technology that is worth millions and millions and millions.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    Massive dilution likely. 50,000,000 new shares at around $0.50? Obviously, this is pure speculation on my part. Or they could just sell the joint for around $1.25 a share. Would you rather have a $0.50 stock price with potential upside, or around $1.25 now if sold to highest bidder? Again, just pure speculation, but I suspect these are possible options being debated by the Board now as they get close to running out of cash.

    I would trust dagiw's assumptions and math. Dagiw has been spot on during his short tenure on MBLX message board. You have been dead wrong time and time and time and time and time and time and time and time again. You've been pumping this stocksince it was over $20. Quite frankly, I can't believe you're still posting on this board given your past record of ALWAYS being WRONG! Perhaps you'll finally be right after about 5 years of being wrong.

    I'll be you're feeling pretty smart right now. I guess you doubled down today, and will double down again at 75 cents. I'm a gambler some where between 50 cents and 60 cents.

    Wishful thinking. CEO says financing by end of June, which happens to also be the time that they will be plum out of cash. Not a good sign that financing wasn't announced today. Stock going below $1.00 and should test new low in very near future.
