    Sorry to see you go. You were by far the most knowledgeable, experienced, and sophisticated investor on the MBLX message board. Competition here isn't very formidable though. Good luck!

    How do you feel about your prediction now? Does a 40%+ decline in price in about 3 weeks constitute "barely moves?"

    How low does the price have to go before you'd be willing to buy? Is there any price you'd be willing to stick your toe in the water and buy this POS stock? I'd be tempted at 70 cents, and will be a buyer at 50 cents -purely out of speculation.

    Just out of curiosity, did you buy another 12,000 shares now that price has plummeted below $1? Are you willing to share with us any other stocks that you are buying? I usually don't buy puts, but I probably couldn't resist if you and Normey were willing to disclose a list of stocks that you own.

    Just so I understand, how low do you expect the price to go before you think we'll be interested in buying your shares?

    I have no skin in the game. I don't own any shares and haven't gone short. That's a fact. Only reason I still watch this stock is my hope to recover the small fortune I lost on this POS stock one day, and to warn others not to believe any thing the MBLX senior management team says. Eno was finally fired, about 2 years too late.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Given you're the most intelligent and experienced investor to post on the MBLX message board, what do you think is going to happen to MBLX in next 90 days? Are you willing to list 3 highest probabilities, in descending order? I personally don't think there are any large customers about to make a significant purchase, otherwise Eno wouldn't have been recently fired.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Will announcement be next week? If they haven't closed the deal yet, then any potential partner or buyer would be prudent to delay in this stock market environment as they have the upper hand. MBLX down to $9 million in cash and becoming more and more desperate as each day passes.

    Just look at the facts. If you're long on MBLX, you're a "LOSER." If you are short on MBLX, you're a "WINNER." I'm trying to help unsophisticated, inexperienced, naive and lazy retail investors - who refuse to do their homework - save their hard earned money. Losers should "move on" as you stated. It's clear you can't see who the real loser is.

    When you brush your teeth tonight, take a hard look in the mirror and ask yourself what in the hell am I doing investing in a company that has no revenue, no production facility, is burning more than $2 million a month in cash, only has $10 million of cash left in the bank, why did a blue chip company like ADM dump MBLX after investing more than $400 million, and why did the Board recently fire Eno. This company never ever delivers. Just read the earnings releases over past several years with a stock chart in front of you. Don't be a FOOL! Move on.

    I want to help other unsophisticated, naive retail investors avoid the pain and suffering that I experienced over the years investing in this POS stock. I kept hoping Eno was telling the truth, and MBLX had game changing technology that was going to be monetized and make me a fortune. Eno never, ever delivered. I kept believing it was just around the corner, and listened to people like Normey who were wrong time and time and time again. Year after year after year. Don't waste your money on MBLX - yet. The time may come when it's time to pull the trigger and buy this stock, but it's not now. Only a fool would buy now, unless they knew something they shouldn't know!

    Looks like someone was right, and it wasn't you. It's going lower. Any other stocks you're long on? I smell a short opportunity.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • $50M to $60M needed for production facility and cash flow needs through end of 2015. Not sure what type of production facility you can get for around $20M. Sounded like they will be need to raise yet more capital by end of 2015. Significant dilution coming. Glad I didn't buy this stock.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

  • Should have around $13 million left in cash, and burning $2 million every month. Revenue last 3 quarters was $1.9 million 1Q 2013, $1.7 million 2Q 2013, and down to $900K in 3Q 2013. Revenue is trending down, and MBLX keeps burning around $2 million of cash a month, which are both very alarming. No major customers announced. No production facility. CEO gets fired at end of year because MBLX financial results are a disaster, and presumably no imminent materially good news.

    If new CEO is smart, he will sign a deal asap with a large customer at whatever price the customer is willing to pay. They need a firm order for at least 5 million lbs, and contact needs to include language for what the price would be if customer purchases up to 25 million or more lbs so that MBLX can spin it in their press release as a contract for as much as 25 million lbs. to attract the attention of the media, other potential customers, and new investors. The stock would immediately increase by at least $1, perhaps to over $4 a share depending on who the customer is. Even though the contract is a loser and would result in higher than current cash burn of $2 million a month, it would give MBLX the opportunity to sell another 20+ million shares to generate the cash they desperately need. By the time investors figure out the contract is a loser, MBLX would have enough cash to buy them more time. They could blame the losses on higher than expected production costs.

    High volume seems trouble for shorts

    We're all glad that you are mostly happy now. Perhaps you'll finally be right after all these years. Eno was fired because there was no materially good news on the horizon. Perhaps new CEO will be able to do in a few short weeks what Eno couldn't do in many years.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • If MBLX had a commercially viable product, then why don't they have any major customers?
    Why haven't they produced any new meaningful quantities since ADM gave them the finger?
    If they had any commercial sized customers getting ready to sign a big deal, or new production coming on line - then why was Eno recently fired? Surely if there was good news on the horizon he'd still be the CEO?
    Why do the analysts covering this stock still have consensus loss of $0.78 cents per share and only $3M to $6M in annual revenue projections?
    Why isn't the stock trending up given new CEO is aggressively on the street trying to find someone to buy MBLX stock, buy the company, or sign a big deal? Any good news would have been leaked to a few people by now, and it doesn't take much to send this stock higher given nominal volume of shares that trade daily.

    Each day that passes without announcing a new major customer increases the probability that massive dilution for existing shareholders is on the horizon. MBLX soon will have no choice but to sell substantial quantities of new shares at whatever price they can get on the open market, or sell the company to highest bidder. Only $15M of cash left, which is less than 7 months at the 2013 burn rate.

    I can't wait to hear if new CEO opens opens the earnings call stating how their focus is on managing cash flow, which is how they've opened every quarterly call for a few years. They didn't earn vast majority of the cash they burn, since most of it came from ADM, secondary offerings, and gov't grants over the years. They never EARNED the cash - just stole it from shareholders, ADM, and the stupid gov't.

    Sentiment: Sell

  • The fact that the stock price stopped moving up is probably a bad sign for the longs. Presumably, new CEO is out on roadshow trying to find new investors for secondary offering, meeting with potential JV partners to find another sucker like ADM to put up the cash and fund the operations, or looking to sign deal with new customer(s). If MBLX had the goods and was making progress in these areas, the info would likely be leaking out and their would be buyers trading on the info. It doesn't take much to drive this stock higher since the daily trading volumes are so low.

    Price was going up for the first few weeks after Shaulson was hired, which made me think it might be time to get back in. However, the fact that this stock stalled and began to trend down makes me think no one is really excited about what Shaulson is out peddling.

    If Shaulson concludes that MBLX has the products, but prices are just too high to be competitive, then he should sign a large deal with any willing customer --- at a loss -- in order to get the headlines and stock price pop. As soon as stock popped, sell a ton of shares to raise the capital needed for a couple of years. That should buy more time.

    Sentiment: Hold
