    Not to worry.............there are large orders showing up in the pipeline. First 30 minutes of trading is usually a head fake anyway. I bought 8,000 more this morning at $2.21 and $2.27. I feel good about the proposition.
    My 100,000 share buy order at $2.00 did not fill yesterday. Ah, what a shame....................LOL!

    Buying will stall at some point, but there is virtually no reason to sell at this time. I can guarantee you that the secondary will be much higher than where it is trading this morning.......

  • Does anyone on this board, anyone who has a position in the stock, anyone who has followed the history of the company, or, its past actions:


    Try $3.75 to $4.50, or, possibly higher. With today's confirmation of Durafit the value proposition has changed. The secondary imo is going to be above $3 per share easily. The tide has changed.

  • CDTI has a long relationship with them. It makes sense...............

  • To have directors re-elected every year. It makes sense. IMO one of the things that destroyed this company, and it has been essentially been destroyed with bankruptcy looming, is that good ole boy network that exists at WG.

    From my viewpoint the cover-up of the gross misconduct and lack of fiduciary responsibility that has been exhibited over the past 5 years was directly part of that total lack of prudent oversight by WG management which just sort of went through the motions of day-to-day operations. Anyone who has followed the continuous folly exhibited by John McNabb and Randy Harl would most likely reach the same conclusion.

    To continually make bad destructive decisions, rubber stamping mediocrity and financial failure, and then seemingly to go from one detrimental announcement to the next..............claiming that you lost track of major seasoned ongoing projects, while having your CFO sing out song of financial #'s that had no ties to reality speaks volumes about the incompetence of WG management. Apparently this boasting management team that likes to continually mention the wonderful people and draw on its 110 year history in the pipeline industry has lost touch with its own operation.

    "You'RE right, if nit for you I would not of known about cdti"........OK, thst's a good start for your truth-o-meter rating. Can you admit to everyone that because of the Spur you are a million or two to the plus side?

    Sure, we could both go back and pull out quotes from the past. For example: Remember when you said, "I (billy), never had any credibility. Guys like me never are allowed in the club".
    That is a description of yourself, by youself.

    But like you said, "I don't want or need your respect".

    We had a good run together bill. I took $190',000 and turned it into right at $3'000,000 since March of 2008. Glad I picked some winners for you. It's time to move on.

    Therefore Bill just told us he holds a paltry 30,000 shares, I own 70% more than William. He really is a slacker, but it appears he has finally given up crack and Stoli.

    It's nice to see the 3 Weasels getting along so well.
    You all need to be trapped, relocated, and living in a re-education camp for Weasels

    1. Their mythical advanced products, if they actually have savings on par with cdti, are not in the marketplace are they?

    2. CDTI first to market.

    3. The insignificant money that it would cost to acquire cdti vs. Self development.

    Wake up GS...........

    Could I ask one favor.............stop mentioning my name with DB and GS.

    Different genetic make-up and tribe. Besides, I own way more shares of CDTI than you do. You a slacker, and you are here at CDTI because of the Spur. OK, you can be in charge of "research", I will locate the deals, you can confirm.

    But please..............I might be associated with GS............but never with DB. #$%$ is DB's real name. Oh, I remember now, it is Norm.

    Goodnight Norm.

  • Think about it for a minute: B of S (even I am laughing at that one)

    BTW, the buying stalled big time from 640,000 to 740,000 shares...............but at the end of the day, those were real acquisitions by a group of different buyers.

    You remember, the stock was suppose to crumble to the $1.90, $1.80, $1.70 level. it stayed above $2 for 95% of the day. Real buyers, with real money understand what is now in-play.

  • spanspur spanspur May 12, 2015 3:47 PM Flag

    I guess you too missed was 87% less PMG in each unit. Do the math wise one.
    This is tested, here and now, being readied for deployment in Durafit. JM may have a solution, but it will not be anywhere near as cost effective. This is why CDTI has vigorously
    spent time and money since the Fall of 2012 in updating, re-applying, and creating NEW marketable patents for their technologies.

    You can read................put yourself in JMs shoes, you going to try and develop inferior price per unit catalytic solution (everyone knows what that would take in time and money), or, are you going buy for a song the World's leading technology which is now proven and operating on different levels in the marketplace.

    Just get everyone in the same room...............I could sell this deal. Everybody wins!

    And you continue to make non-visionary jokes. It is unlikely the next secondary will be at $1.70, but we get it, you have been pushing that price so you can buy. The last one was at $2.80? when things were very, very clouded. That is not the case.

    whether you believe or not, I could at least present the proposition for the next secondary to an organization that makes $2 to $3 million a day, everyday of the year. The owner of that organization is one of the 60 richest people in the World. He knows who i am. He gave me my chance to shine 18 years ago. I did not let him down.

    I would be willing to purchase $1 million in stock as part of any deal.

    RVM has better financials than CDTI

    spanspur spanspur May 12, 2015 3:24 PM Flag

    If you call having NO markets or actual marketable product to sell "having better financials".

    You are a total buffoon..........

  • Depending on the # of units sold using CDTI technology as opposed to conventional catalytic offerings. Imagine if their entire line-up installed. Imagine if the major auto OEM's installed..........annual combined savings would be close to the $80 million Spanspur envisions as a Friendly Buyout price.

    It's time, it has been a long 20 years. I am surprised the company has not presented this type of deal to someone, who knows, maybe they have. Durafit will continue to make inroads. IMO it makes more sense at this juncture to put all of this in-play, show the majors how in real terms it costs them little or nothing, and the technology will flourish.

    We can all go home and have some Apple Cider and Pumpkin Pie...............

    value of the HC enterprise they have created. This is pocket change today for what is in-play. Ultimately, at the tests are already confirming, CDTI technology is about to become the standard for the transportation industry.

    Sadly DBTuna does not have vision.................

    Whether it is GM, or Ford (btw, Ford is now the 2nd largest holder of advanced catalytic patents and CDTI is #1 in the World), or Honda, etc, etc, etc. I would hope that a major American OEM would step in and purchase the company, complete development, and thoroughly deploy across all model offerings. The Japanese are aware and interested, the Chinese would win big, and think about it just for a minute, while DB flaps his jaw the actual cost of buying CDTI at $80 million to let's say a GM (a paltry $5 or $6 bucks a share), with existing tax write-off law would be minimal. Even if it was all stock, it would make sense for the company, its employees, and its shareholders.

    Before there was a lot of theory, lackluster financial results, and an unclear future. What will DB say when CDTI takes its share of the filter market? CDTI is in a position to dominant the filter market from a cost per unit perspective. Today the CEO confirmed yet once again that this 80% plus savings per unit PMG will be installed in Durafit.

    Therefore, if not GM or Ford, will be one of the 3 major coatings manufacturers. The interlocking directorates of the majors have protected their territory for years with the ties to the major OEMs. They have never faced this sort of innovation 80% plus PMG savings. Put yourself in their shoes, do you purchase it now at a great value price, or, do you watch you competitor purchase it now..............and find your own offerings at a serious cost per unit disadvantage?

    Of course, months ago, Spanspur suggested forming a Holding company, each of the Big 3 ante up $25 million for unlimited access to license, CDTI oversees manufacturing and continued research via annual licensing contributions from the HC, the $75 million goes to
    Kanis and the shareholders. Pretty simple, it is time, if Spinel and the entire line continue to dominate the market...............the members of the HC would have enhanced marketable

    Nice hatchet job DB. Your assumptions are laughable. $20 million to take their testing to completion. Wow, Spinel is seeking EPA approval now, and you see another $20 million (I do not think there is not a rational person on this board who believes your #). Then you mention licensing and how not one patent is licensed by the company. Do you want to stick with this assessment? CDTI supplies TKK in what is essentially a licensing agreement. Honda is supplied with what is a de facto licensing agreement.

    ZERO to $20 million? Wow, DB, that's why you never really made it in the business world. I am pretty certain CDTI could do a cash/stock deal right now in the $75 million to $90 million range, particularly with the Durafit addition. Particularly with the positive input from early Spinel.

    We both sort of know that when one understands what is in-play as far as the already confirmed innovations that bring $$ value savings to the users..............that 80% increased reduction in PMG content is beyond huge.
    Just this past month, as you know, 3 independent labs confirmed the cost savings in one segment of their offerings.

    You know DB....................stay tuned! LOL!

  • spanspur spanspur May 12, 2015 2:41 PM Flag

    seems like the company has turned the corner with Durafit. I must admit I did not believe that Durafit was going to hit their targets. But it appears, Durafit could exceed previous projections. As you know the company sees $5 million this year alone.

  • If that's what they want, that what they will get.
