    If you check today's news you'll find that there is a penny stock that had huge volume as people loaded up over the last several days then released press today that indicated that it is competition for Taser. Our local short is probably part of that pump and dump scheme. The huge volume in the days preceding a press release are one sign of a typical pump and dump. Sometimes they'll add to that by trash talking a competitor's website. I believe that's what we have here so it is probably best to put our resident short on ignore and fight back with facts. The facts include lots and lots of sales over the last year and probably the best combination of cameras and cloud support in the business. Keep sharing details of what you know to be true and eventually the shorts with be squeezed out of this position.

    Here's to $20 and Beyond!

    May all your dreams come true...

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Activision should buy GameLoft and turn their products into another cash generating machine "for Activision".
    GameLoft has many of the same partners, they create games for most of the right platforms but
    they don't the publicity and the marketing to take it to the next level.
    For example, they just release one of the top games in multiple app stores and the
    company's market cap has since lost over 20%.... Go figure
    IMHO, this is the time to strike and buy the company on the cheap.
    If Activision doesn't then someone else probably will.

    The fact that Jack is back says volumes...

    FYI, the fact that board members and execs are buying says a lot too.

    There are zero reasons for them to buy unless they are confident they are going to make money. They already have more than enough shares to become very wealthy should this investment finally pay off, yet they are ready to buy more.

    The writing is on the wall... For those who are short it is time to buy and cover.

    Wednesday may also be telling yet the excitement will really be over who's investing.

    These are some very bright people and of course they are getting one hell of a deal, but their deal is what makes it possible for your shares to have long term value. Without them, the company would cease to exist. With them, the sky is now the limit. Time will tell...

    Anyone else bought some this week?

  • Metabolix... announced that it has entered into an agreement with Jack W. Schuler, Oracle Investment Management, Inc., Birchview Capital, certain members of the Company's Board of Directors and executive management team, and other investors for the sale of an aggregate of $25 million of Company securities.

    There is a very big short in this equity but now that Jack is back and ready to buy more the writing is on the wall. If you have shorts it is time to get out and cover. If you don't have stock now may finally be the time to buy; of course, always dollar cost average into any position.

    Good luck folks!

    Financing is announced on Monday?
    Will the price soar of a dollar? $1.20? $1.30? $1.50?

    Would a few shorts run for cover knowing that whoever is backing this company is serious about seeing them succeed?

    Let's say they get 40 to 60 Mil and issue year 2020 warrants at a price of 75c but an early buyback price of $1.
    Would the price of the warrants cause you to dump your shares at 75 cents?

    Creative financing happens all the time and the top investors here aren't going to let Metabolix fall flat as long as their IP still has value. Worst case scenario the company is sold for the value of it's IP... The work they've done in PVC is probably worth more than the current market cap!

    End of June is not as dire as some think. Here is part of what was said during the CC: “You’ll recall that our financing plan is to raise to $50 million to $60 million over the next 12 to 15 months. To that end, we’re looking at a variety of different structures ranging from smaller staged financings to larger, more comprehensive solutions. While we’re not in the position today to say how this will all play out, what we do know is that we intend to complete at least the first phase of our financing by the end of June… Based on our current plans and projections, which remain subject to numerous uncertainties, we intend to raise $50 million to $60 million over the next 12 to 15 months… Failure to receive additional funding by the end of June 2014 will force us to delay, scale back or otherwise modify our business, operating plans, and/or pursue strategic alternatives… here’s a lot of activity around the financing, and we are talking to a bunch of different people about a variety of different structures. The focus has really been about the long term business plan and making sure that we’re securing the capital that we need to execute it. And we’re focused specifically on counterparties who share that interest… I would say that our plan to complete at least the first phase of financing by the end of June and we would expect to have a full set of information for investors about what that financing looks like when we announce it. And to complete it by the end of June, it means we’d have to announce it by the end of June.”

    Okay so failure will lead to delay, scale back, business mods or strategic alternatives… The last one there could interest short term traders because a sale of the company would probably return at least 2x from today’s price and possibly much more. In spite of what the shorts want you to think, The IP here has significant value. Shopping the company for a buyer that knows how to unlock value could result in a bidding war
