Had you listened to FOOL this morning, you would've sold at 91 cents and be waiting to buy back at 72 cents. As for NEW people, there are always trolls telling readers to sell. How is that new? What would be new is if you offered a sophisticated take on this morning's news, or the Siemen's contract, and shared that with the board. Or you showed up with content we hadn't seen yet. What you showed up with was your declaration that you're a market maker and you can predict the future. Sure thing. Like every con man who ever walked this planet.
Pretty basic that a stock that rises 22% in a day will have some pull back. That is something an investor can try to time or not. This morning, you wrote (and then deleted) investors should sell in the low 90's and rebuy at 72 cents. I agree investors should not listen to board members telling them to hold or buy. However, the converse is also true: don't listen to a stranger/troll who shows up, acts as if he/she has inside info, and you need to sell. Occasionally on this board (e.g., alerts to this morning's story, insights into Siemen's deal), there is content or perspective, and investors can read and include in their overall picture of the stock. But you, who showed up as the stock took off this morning, referred to yourself as a "market maker" (please) and referred to board members as "dogs" and then whined that you're the GOOD GUY. I usually don't address the trolls here and most are amusing in their machinations. But I don't like you, troll.
FOOL deleted his prediction, made when price was in low 90's, that we should take profits and rebuy at 72 cents. Coward. Troll.
You told us it was going to 72 cents, troll. What if a market maker (who trolls boards) revised his predictions over and over during the course of a few hours? I'd think he was a paid troll.
The one question never answered by a troll on a message board. "Why would a market maker be hyper-posting on a message board?"
Scroll down a little folks and see the troll say drop was going to be to 72 cents. Keep posting. We enjoy trolls.
So says the troll (I mean market maker) who predicted a pull back to .72. Your actions are the most classic troll behavior. A 22% one-day rise based on news, and there will always be a troll (or 3) to say, "22%, that's all you got? What a POS!"
Well, keep posting, troll boy. We know you get paid by the post and we don't want you to starve.
I noticed you're 2 for 2 this morning on a very specific prediction; that doesn't happen much around here. Of course, the one we care about is prediction 3... You have my attention.
As you noted, no improvements will be reflected in Q1 production/sales. At time of previous CC, 6 of 9 Leach system tanks were installed. At the very least, they need to report that 9 of 9 (not 7 of 9) have been installed, and that Q2, Q3, Q4 will see significant leaps in production.
They will be pressed by Gambardella to do a better job of addressing cash issue. Hopefully, the ramp up and Siemen's deal will provide them a scaffolding on which they can begin to build a picture for future earnings. After previous CC, I was very pessimistic about Q1 CC; however, the Siemen's deal gives them something they can sell (the best news they've had in years, really). They really need to break their incredibly long streak of prices dropping post-CC. The have no confidence they can reach production milestones (with good reason) and that is all anyone has ever wanted to hear on these calls. The closest they've come is saying they'll be at 4,000 mt for Q4 2015.
Previously on this board, I've noted how a deep dive into the MCP web site reveals MCP to be a corporation with a tremendous capacity for research and development of rare earth-related products, and how inexplicable it is that none of that capacity ever gets relayed to investors in presentations/CCs. I am heartened to see that while pitching themselves to Siemens they did a better job of conveying their capacity.
Earliest possible good news would be in the beginning of July, if Q2 production goes to, say, 2,500 and they announce, along with language saying "ramp up is perfect" and prices are decent. Hey, if they are not above 2,000 for Q2, it's truly over.
