    I Have Only One Amibition

    Alvin Lee deserves to be mentioned. He's gone too...........

  • To be immoralized like Joe Coker was at Woodstock........

    He passed last year and he was a Colorado Boy with an English mansion just on the other side of Basalt.
    He did a lot of organic gardening. They were asking $7 million for the place. Everything was formally decorated.

    Watching Woodstock: Three Days of Peace & Music

    Joe was very proud of the tomatoes that he grew.

    $1.24 on Friday? It's happened before

    Yep, the AP announcement was completely wasted. One with half a brain would og held it until after the secondary was complete. Instead, working in concert with Cowan on the secondary CDTI empowered those with the 24 million volume in a single session to place their short sale transactions as new buyers come in on the hype.

    Now the company and its valuation is controlled by HFT. And the company's public personal permanently damaged as a valid investment vehicle.

    A child in Jr high would of known to hold the AP announcemeny. So it appears cdti management wanted it buried and obscurred..........Thereby empowering the short side.

    Now in a coffee shop in Ventura or Orange County someone discovers a napkin with some #s on it.............I in no way trust these guys anymore.

    Anybody on this board going to get in the way of friends of Cowan hit this thing after cdti announces their continual $2 to $3 million loss? The perfect scam.........

    You know, the same guys who traded 24 million shares in a single trading session, of a company with less than 15 million shares outstanding at the time.

    Cdti management's is one of continual screw ups. This is just one more example as cdti management has placed the shareholders in financial Jeparody by empowering the shorts with the enlarged 1.6 million short postion. If Cowan knew it was $2.04, what do the short positions know that we do not?

    Never a sales announcement. Remember the last cc, the last question, What about Ford and Gm? Chris Harris, heavy sigh, Ford? No. But GM was bantered.

    It was all a set up............the question and the answer. Get it!

  • CDTI stock is worthless with existing management continually being poorly advised.

    Psst CDTI management begin working now on a private placement for January 2016. The way you hsve been operating will not be allowed further. The company and its officers are going to be sued if you try this shirt again.

    I have him on ignore. Are there problems?

    With my dramatic losses in cdti I was thinking about asking Bill for temporary funding. Kind of like a cdti secondary, I will sign a worthless promissory note (similar to cdtI issuing shares of stock).
    He owes me millions that I made him in the markets...

    shorts better cover 1.6M shares

    by sallpopvtr 5 hours ago

    Why worry about covering? Another $3 to $4 million loss will be announced, and the shyster companis that cdti management uses to keep the company floating from quarter to quarter will capture another couple of million.

    Cdti management knew the last secondary was going to be at $2.04. And rather than announce that that price in advance cdti management announced PR that enabled the shyster underwriter to trade 24 million shares in a single session of a company with less than 15 million shares outstanding. Once enough pigeons had purchased enough shares above $2.50 then in the same week it is $2.04. Classic case of collusuon and fraud.

    CDTI management has a fiduciary responsibility to shareholders. CDTI management enabled the deception.
    CDTI management knew in advance. The shyster firms that cdti uses were not happy with a $500,000 underwriting fee.

    Clearly CDTI management has not acted in the best interests of shareholders. If they try this game again they will need to be sued. The SEC needs to be made aware of the 3 previous secondaries. For example: Who is making the money to the downside. Are and How are they connecTed to Cowan? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Pumping PR, HF churn, and a $2.04 secondary that immediately creates mIllinois for friends of Cowan are not fiduciary to cdti shareholders. Today, stock at $1.70.
    Great job CDTI Management you deceptive losers, you have focked everyone who has supported you, damaged both the person of the company and its ability to raise funds in the future.


  • It is all a fraud. Has been from the beginning. Imagine a 20 year business that has never made a profit, and has spent $275 million that will never be recovered. But senior management is mega rich.

    It has been a watch Durafit fail like every thing else they have touched over 20 years.

    Q2 Results on 8/4

    by beendown2 Jul 30, 2015 3:00 PM

    Completely agree. CDTI stock is now damaged because management has been yet again poorly advised. Somehow cdti management believes that issusing false secondAries wherein the company walks with not only fees, but another 2 or $3 million in churn cash in 3 days, and cdti management just thinks this is OK.

    Translation: After 3 of these deals in 2 years the conclusion Iis clear, Do not buy cdti stock, do not believe or trust cdti management, and the fraud at cdti continues.

    Who cares if their actions cost shareholders millions of dollars..........we cannot make a profit. All we do is spend, spend, sprnd. Package the company for sale? Not cdti management.
    They will dilute, they will destroy, they will hang out in the lab.

    They are not Business people. Get ready for another $.25 per share loss. Then Kanis can take the company into bankruptcy anytime it wants and it is all dealt for free to AP.

    CDTI has a long history of malfeaseance. The record is there to read.


    $2.04 BECOMES $1.70........?AND MANAGEMENT is OK with 16% missing. Anyone who buys a cdti secondary has rocks for brains. It has been a fraud.......just like the Durafit sales #s.

    CDTI has an exemplary quality control record. The previous poster threw in comments about FAIL RATE as if it exists and is problematic. In fact, we have never heard about it being a problem or impacting financially. Over the years there may have been a defective unit, but CDTI has never had a Recall or field model swap out. Seems like the previous poster was just sort of throwing out his own view of operational importance. I agree with him, and it was a topic that I touched on with CDTI management in 2012.

    We need profits, not words or research papers. We need strong sales relationships with capability. CDTI management needs to recognize that the company and shareholder value will be enhanced when the company is sold to an entity that provides the aforementioned.

    So the new guy comes from a good famiky? Great! All of us on this board are orphans.

    Quality control and p rocesses? 1, CDTI"s quality control is solid having never experienced a recall. 2. Processes? What type ofnprocesses?

    Let me be candid. We want your buddy and the company to actually make a profit. We have tired of all the word and verbiage. That's pretty simple to understand.

    Pretty Quiet Here In Oxnard

    Yeah, but we are family........

  • We have shut down the line after filling an order for 18 Durafits. Lunch is in an hour (here at the plant lunch is 1/2 hour with a 5 minute wash up). After lunch we we'll do clean-up and prevenative ms
    aintenance. Management has informed us no work tomorrow or Monday. They will call , maybe for Tuesday.

    The best part of my day is when the conveyor belt shuts down, the air turbines are shut off and it makes that whooshing sound one hears when strapped inside a wind turbine.

    It's not just a career, it's a life style. This is not the first plant I have worked at.........

    No, I am here to point out, and pose the question to cdti managemrnt: We have watched, we have listened, and the game never chsnges. Your company cannot make a SALe with substance.

    So rather than dilute shareholder value into oblivion with FREE SHARES for management, with secondaries.......does it not make sense to create value rather than destroy it with blind ambition?


    Translation: Get ready for more financial losses, more fraud secondaries, a reverse split, and possible bankruptcy.

    Why am I here..........I believed their released press. Sadly cdti management are not Business people. They have been living off the corporate gravy train for decades. Still no profits, just financial failure.

  • It is inevitable. Instead of package the compsny for sale cdti management is content to play their game. They have spent $275 million on building the company, and NEVER HAVE MADE A PROFIT?

  • They will not buy any with their own money, but feel entitled for continual mediocrity and financial non-performance. For example: Why was the company paying Breese and Mehta $400,000 per year salary?
    Additionally each of these indiciduals received another $400,000 for not being there, not working, along with medical benefits.

    And the company cannot make a sale.........

    Why should he be granted any shares? What, further dilution for non-performance. He is an employee, and a cast off from another company.
    And now he is yet another CDTI emploees in a gravy train that proutes ZERO profitd, just dilution.

    As someone already mentioned..........what has the existing sales staff been doing. CDTI lie tally cannot sell to an OEM. But they talk like they are/can. In 3 years ZERO...........

    Thanks....................the problem that no one wants to face is with or without a government intervention, AKS is focked for all of 2015 (a year, according to Wainscott that the company was finally going to be CASH FLOW POSITIVE)...............those were his words. AKS literally has no way to make money. The auto contraction in sales is set to begin in 2016 according to auto industry projections themselves.

    As usual, the OBama administration and US government is almost 9 months behind the Europeans and the US Steel industry is suppose to wait until late November for a ruling? There will be no damages paid to AKS, only a $400 million loss, that's $400 million over the last 18 months.

    Someone mentioned that Wainscott hinted at buying shares if the price does not improve. With what, Borrowed money? AKS has no way to prosper. The Chinese and Korean steel makers are merely going to continue to bring in foreign steel in a tacit way through other channels........

    Once again, AKS has no way to make a per share profit, and Wainscott has essentially lied to everyone about the operational capability of the company.
