    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

    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.

    Sentiment: Sell

    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.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    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.

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    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
