    Let's not forget Charlie is 55....

    After leaving Johnson and Johnson (tylenol) he was at Black and Decker - one of my close friends was D&B National Sales Manager and this is the top of the food chain in the Hardwear Homecenter Business. Before that Delta and Peerless - Probably second to Kohler but great Companies - prior to that Aqua Glass - tubs and shower - less expensive but just as good as Kohler - Pentair's Tools Group President and CEO - prior to that Chief Operating Officer and President of Oldham Saw Co -proir to that - Mr. Brown served as the President and Chief Operating Officer of Porter-Cable Corporation and finally Chief Executive Officer and President of Flow International Corp until the company sold in 2014.

    How do I know all of this.......I left J&J for the Hardwear Homecenter Business.......and I am almost positive with the exception of Aqua Glass.....A large portion of the products he sold were made in Chinese Factories.

    I am guessing Charles Brown has spent a great deal of time in China and will be a GREAT ASSET to SYMX

    Methanol Asia at 4 Year Lows

    Best Guess from a 3 year shareholder.......

    92.5% from joint ventures selling equipment and technology for gasification......Based on Rigdon saying that in 3 to 5 years we should be getting $500 M per year licensing our technology....

    7.5% from ZZ and Yima (when it is back up and running).......or

    100%......if someone will come in and buy SYMX.....That is First Prize......

    Buying on dips is the smart way to go.......Good Luck Less

    At the restaurant all day watching World Cup and SYMX
    Guy that bites people is like Summer's Eve
    Especially like posts by Alpine Breeze.......Our laters Summers Eve
    This Dog has fleas and I am gone......Next post
    I emailed IR and they have not responded to me.....Really
    Thought you were gone.....

    No clue as to what is going on.......sold share over $2 and bought them all back in the 1.62 area
    Up 14 cents yesterday and 14 cents again today with huge volume
    One 100,000 share trade......Just talked to Castaneda once....
    Think the interest and volume are doing all the talking for me right now....

    Huge day tomorrow if we can get over $2.00......Looks like resistance at $2.05
    Will sell what I bought at 1.62 at 2.02 if that hits tomorrow......

    One thing I know for sure......Where there is smoke there is fire....and
    We closed December 31st at 60 Cents
    Six months later we have so much interest
    and a triple......
    Like Red Smith the famous jourmalist said......Willie Mays's glove is where triples go to die.......

    SYMX is where triples go to live.......Wish us luck
    Call anytime......

    surprised by the selling

    You are correct.......Yesterday we traded over 1.3 million shares mostly before it came right where it opened at $1.70......Today we opened at $1.71 and closed at 1.65 with 235,000 shares trades....In the short term I have no clue what is happening....I know two things for sure 1) SYMX is creating a lot of interest and corporate joint venture agreements..... which should help in the short and long tern.....and 2) and most importantly......we are no longer trading for 60 cents a share.....

    The telephone is ringing off the hook down in Houston today. That costs money........How about .....American coal companies are on hold awaiting their turn to COME to Houston to ask for SYMX's help. To survey the desperate company's coal operations and determine how SYMX can be a solution to comply with the EPA's new emission's mandate.

    Okay......Even though Yima is 100% shut down and will not open until best case 2nd quarter 2015.....I still think we are in good shape.....

    Put a good to cancel prior to May 7th earnings call for $5.00 a share.......for 100% of your shares.....That way you are covered and can buy them back if you want at a later date....Get your order in first thing Monday so you will be first out at $5.00

    No Sir..... what I mean is sell at as much as you can over $3.50 and use that money to take your family on vacation......Take your family to Disneyworld and jump on the monorail.....Go past The Magic Kindgon.....and look far off in the distance....To Fantasyland......Bring your binoculars because this one will be hard to see...Big Big Plant called Yima....Uncle Bob told us in January 29th during the second quarter report Yima was operation at 80% capacity.....If you squint real hard into your extra stregnth binoculars.....I am guessing you will see zero smoke coming out of Yima's three gasifiers.
    Just a guess.......They will tell us during the earnings call May 7th......

    When he got older he deceided to move to the Big City..... St. Louis.....The last advise his Black Father gave him was......"Don't Trust Whitie"
