ADES - DD in at $19.91

ADA-ES Provides Update on Progress with Refined Coal Activities
First Three M45 Facilities Successfully Placed in Service

Press Release: ADA-ES, Inc. – Tue, Nov 29, 2011 4:27 PM EST

LITTLETON, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ADA-ES, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADES - News) (“ADA”) today provided an update on the progress of Clean Coal Solutions, LLC (“Clean Coal”), its joint venture with an affiliate of NexGen Resources Corporation and an affiliate of The Goldman Sachs Group, Inc. Clean Coal is marketing two different technologies, CyClean and M45, both of which reduce emissions of NOx and mercury, and qualify for IRS Section 45 tax credits of over $6.33 per ton of coal.

To date, Clean Coal has installed and operated 15 Refined Coal (“RC”) facilities, consisting of both CyClean and M45 technologies, at various utility sites, with three more RC facilities scheduled to be qualified by the end of next week. ADA expects that each of these 18 facilities will satisfy the “placed-in-service” requirements from initial operations, which would make these facilities available for full-time operation in 2012 and qualify for the IRS Section 45 tax credits for a ten-year period. Clean Coal’s goal is to install and operate up to eight additional RC facilities by year-end, for a total of 26 facilities installed in 2011.

After initial operation, it takes an average of approximately six months to obtain permits for full-time operation, secure necessary approvals from Public Utility Commissions and complete all necessary contracts. If all planned RC facilities become fully operational, which we expect to occur throughout 2012, they should produce a total of more than 40 million tons of RC per year. At this level of production, ADA expects to generate pre-tax income of approximately $50 million per year after payments to minority partners for the 10-year life of the tax credits. Based on continued progress with permitting and contract negotiations between the lessees of the facilities and the utilities where the facilities are sited, ADA hopes to have several of these additional facilities processing more than 15 million tons of coal per year in routine operations within the next two months.

Clean Coal is financing the construction and installation of the new RC facilities with a $15 million line of credit with a commercial bank, internal cash flows of approximately $20 million per year from the first two RC facilities in operation since June 2010, and deposits received to secure participation in the facilities. To date, Clean Coal has received $11 million in deposits from the likely lessees.

Success with M45 Technology
Included in the 26 new facilities expected to be installed by year-end are six facilities designed to operate using ADA’s new patent-pending M45 technology. In September, ADA announced it had successfully demonstrated this new technology for producing RC that complements and expands Clean Coal’s market for RC beyond the patented and currently operating CyClean technology, which is limited to cyclone boilers. In November, ADA signed a non-binding term sheet granting an exclusive license of M45 to Clean Coal. The exclusive license that would result from the expected definitive agreement will include a royalty based on a percent of operating income on future production of M45 RC and prepaid royalties up to $10 million, in addition to ADA’s 42.5% distributions from the JV.

Over the past few weeks, ADA has successfully placed-in-service three RC facilities based upon the M45 technology. This includes the first system off the line designed exclusively for M45 and two facilities originally built for CyClean. In the full-scale operation of these facilities, the M45 technology demonstrated mercury removal over 40% and up to 70%, and NOx reductions over 20% and up to 30%. The capability of using CyClean facilities with the M45 technology gives Clean Coal greater flexibility in deciding where to locate the plants, increasing the potential RC production.
Dr. Michael Durham, President and CEO, stated, “We have established a very aggressive schedule for optimizing RC opportunities and are making great progress getting these facilities installed and operating. These business opportunities do not depend upon any new environmental or tax regulations. The current 10-year tax credits do not require any additional approval by Congress, which provides us with confidence that CyClean and the M45 technologies will generate long-term cash flows.”

The Company will be presenting this update at the 2011 Baird Clean Technology Conference at 2:15 pm Pacific Time on Wednesday, November 30, 2011 at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco, CA. A copy of the slides will be available via the Investor Information section of ADA’s website at The presentation slides will also be filed as a Current Report on Form 8-K with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on or before November 30, 2011.

Product sales for the three months ended June 30, 2011 increased 56% to $33,547,000, from $21,473,000 for the same period one year ago.

"We began work on our previously disclosed $14 million Matamoros, Mexico plant expansion project to support capacity needs associated with new business and anticipated demand for existing products in 2012 and beyond. Additional molding capacity is scheduled to come on-line by the end of this year with the project slated for completion in the third quarter 2012," Barnett said.

Why I bought CVV Yesterday - Graphene & Growth

Usual Disclaimers before I start - Don't chase any stocks. Don't buy stocks just because I buy them. Manage your own entry/exits and risk. This blog is to document my trading ideas and is not investment advice. I am far from 100% accurate. I can be wrong and do have bad picks. Stocks I buy could drop below where I bought them. Low float stocks can be volatile and dangerous. When up on a stock pick I always take some off to protect profit and manage the rest. I don't want to sell you a subscription. I don't want you to follow me. See other disclaimers at bottom of this blog.

CVV (CVD Equipment Corporation) - Bought CVV yesterday at $14-75-$14.85. Moments later it exploded into the $16's (That was kind of SUPER to watch). Has had a great run and Q2 Earnings are on the way. Will add on dips if it gets back close to my buy point. Potential to be a big story momentum stock over the next year and here is why I think that.

CVV - Incredible Growth, Low Float 4.1m per Bloomberg and O/S approximately 6-7m, Manufacturer of potential holy grail material Graphene, Nano-Material Equipment Manufacturer. $0.14 EPS last Quarter and Backlog experiencing Strong Growth. Did I mention they manufacture Graphene ? Get to know Graphene.

Sunday, July 17, 2011 Mid-Year 2011 Review

GSVC - First called it at $14.50 on April 29th Read Blog Post and stuck with it by averaging down as it dropped to $10 because it was relatively obscure. Well it closed at $18.90 for a new 52 week high on Friday and would not doubt to see a $20's run this week. My average is in the $12's so will manage core position and trading shares accordingly. Everyone that bought should have made money on it by now so this is a super-trades winner!

MITK - Speaking of super-trade winners, I first called MITK at $3.35 Read Blog Post on November 24th. MITK transfered to the Nasdaq this week and has hit as high as $9.50. super-trades winner

NEPT - I called NEPT at $3.10 on April 21st Read Blog Post and it closed at $3.99 on Friday and has hit as high as $4.27. super-trades winner

ESTE - Called this stock at $19 on February 24th Read Blog Post. 4 trading days later it hit $25.25. While it was a good trade it has performed poorly after hitting the 52 week high. It was a super-trade but I must say I am disappointed by the lack of follow through. I do believe it is a stock to watch on any oil momentum.

PLPE.OB - Called PLPE on January 28th at $0.80 Read Blog Post. It hit $1.12 in April but I am going to label this a bad call because even though it went up a decent % after my call for a super-trade and there was money to be made.....since then it has been an absolute dog.

I am on a roll in 2011 with all 5 of my stock picks going up a nice % after my posting. 3 of 5 are still solidly above where I first called them even though I am NOT a long term holder of stocks.

I am excited about the market this week. Some new picks may be coming soon.

One last note on the 2010 Chinese scams - Most Chinese stocks ended up being absolute scams, including two that were monster winners of super-trades RINO and CCME. RINO I called at $5 and it hit $30 and CCME I called at $9 and it hit $22. I was long gone from both of these stocks and no longer writing about them anywhere near the time of their downfall. They were trades and profitable ones at that. But lessons learned on China stocks and the frauds that can exist in the market. But there was tons of money to be made from my calls on both of these stocks long before their demise. Investing has risks and that is why I only post my own stock ideas and I dont give investment advice or charge people for stock picks.

Here is to a great second half in 2011 !!! super-trades to all !!!!!

With GSV Fund, The Little Guy Can Shoot For The Next Facebook
May. 16 2011 - 1:57 am | 222 views | 0 recommendations | 0 comments
If you want a piece of Facebook, Twitter or other hot private Internet companies, you can buy a stake through SecondMarket, Sharespost or a secondary broker–if you’re an accredited investor as defined by the SEC.

But a new publicly-traded closed-end mutual fund, Global Silicon Valley Corp. (Nasdaq: GSVC), which quietly had its IPO last month, gives the average Joe the chance to buy in to the next big technology company–while it’s still private.

On April 28 GSV, which is changing its name from its original moniker NeXt Innovation Corp., raised about $50 million through pricing 3.33 million shares at $15 a piece. The firm is headed by Chief Executive Michael Moe, who was co-founder and former chairman of tech investment bank ThinkEquity Partners.

GSV will initially invest in about 15 to 30 start-ups in secondary deals as well as primary direct investments. It will target companies between $100 million and $1 billion in valuation, with revenue growing at more than 40% annually. The firm has not invested in any companies yet. Moe says he’s looking at growth-stage companies, not competing with John Doerr or Marc Andreessen for the next early-stage star company.

“We intend to invest in the most important, fastest growing companies,” Moe said. “It’s a new normal of companies staying private longer. We’re investing in companies that would’ve historically have gone public… This not only will give start-up companies and their investors big paydays but also give retail investors access to new high growth tech companies.”

GSV will pass on profits to its own investors when it sees liquidity in its portfolio companies through a dividend. GSV is organized as a closed-end fund, which is a publicly-traded company. GSV is managed by the affiliated NeXt Asset Management.

Moe has been thinking about the problems with the IPO market for years. He was co-founder and CEO at ThinkEquity from 2001 to 2008. Prior to that he was head of global growth research at Merrill Lynch from 1998 to 2001, and before that he was head of growth research and strategy at Montgomery Securities from 1995 to 1998. He also is on the board of Sharespost.

He’s still bullish on Sharespost, but he believes there should be a way for retail investors to invest in new growth companies. Whereas in the past companies may have gone public at a $100 million market cap, now due to major changes in the IPO market many are waiting until they reach $1 billion or more. He says GSV will give individual investors access to these companies, which have previously only been accessible to venture capital and private equity firms, as well as accredited investors (which generally means someone with a net worth of more than $1 million or annual income of more than $200,000).

“It’s a way for a broad group of investors to access the kind of companies of tomorrow that they used to have the opportunity to invest in because they had an IPO on the Nasdaq,” Moe said. “Now they’re not. So now investors can participate in those companies in a publicly-traded security. I think that is compelling.”

But will there be sufficient information about these private companies? Many questions have been raised about special-purpose vehicles buying shares of companies like Facebook and Twitter and whether even accredited investors have an accurate sense of what they’re investing in. (I previously covered this at Dow Jones.) That’s because few shareholders have access to the financials of private companies, by definition, except perhaps venture investors with large stakes.

So will retail investors betting on similar private companies be even less informed? Moe says no. He says GSV Capital has detailed information on private companies from NeXtup Research, which Moe co-founded and co-owns. GSV management pays NeXtup for the research out of its management fees. NeXtup Research also provides research to Sharespost.

NeXtup Research does not have inside information but gathers data through its proprietary methods, Moe says. Whether that research is enough for investors to buy the stock remains to be seen. Moe is selling investors on his background and experience in investment banking as well as that of his partners–that he will pick winners in what is a frothy private market for Internet and technology companies.

GSV’s CFO Stephen Bard was chief operating officer and a board member at Fuller & Thaler Asset Management from 2001 to 2009. Prior to that he was managed west coast operations for Fidelity Management Trust Company.

GSV’s board of advisors includes Todd Bradley, executive vice president at Hewlett-Packard, William Campbell, who is an Apple board member and chairman at Intuit, and Robert Grady, managing director and partner at Cheyenne Capital Fund and former partner at the Carlyle Group.

Next Innovation will charge a 2% management fee and a 20% carry on profits after an 8% hurdle, somewhat akin to the way a venture fund works. Moe says that venture and private equity firms would be interested in working with his company because it can provide advice, help with recruiting or connections through their networks. Also, GSV does not require a board seat to invest.

There is some precedent for a publicly-traded venture investor. Internet Capital Group famously was one of the high-flyers during the dotcom bubble, investing in business-to-business e-commerce companies and once had a $60 billion valuation on the Nasdaq. Harris and Harris Group is a publicly traded company investing in nanotechnology. But Moe says GSV is not a publicly-traded venture fund, it’s rather an emerging growth fund.

Ultimately it will be interesting to see how investors react once GSV starts to announce companies in which it has invested. In the dot-com bubble, Main Street investors, eyes glued to CNBC, eagerly invested in every new dot-com IPO. During this era, will retail investors, pumped up by bloggers and Twitter posts, instead invest in hot growth companies through funds like GSV? Will GSV’s stock pop each time it announces a new portfolio company? Stay tuned.

Tech executives launch fund targeting secondary markets

* Apple director Campbell, HP executive Bradley advises

By Nadia Damouni

NEW YORK, Jan 10 (Reuters) - A group of Silicon Valley executives plan to launch the first ever closed-end mutual fund to offer retail investors access to primary and secondary market trading of fast-growing private companies.

The launch of NeXt BDC Capital Corp fund, disclosed in a regulatory filing on Jan. 7 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, comes as interest in hot privately held Internet companies such as Facebook have soared on online trading platforms such as SecondMarket Inc.

Interest in private Internet companies reached a milestone last week after Goldman Sachs' $450 million investment in Facebook at a $50 billion valuation and a commitment to raise another $1.5 billion drew the attention of the SEC. [ID:nN04246696]

NeXt BDC is structured as a closed-end fund, which is a publicly traded investment company that raises a fixed amount of capital through an initial public offering (IPO). The fund is then structured, listed and traded like a stock on a stock exchange. It is seeking to raise $50 million.

The fund is headed by Michael Moe, co-founder and former chairman and chief executive officer of ThinkEquity Partners, an investment bank that focuses on venture capital.

NeXt BDC will be managed by NeXt Asset Management, whose advisory board includes technology heavy hitters such as William Campbell, an Apple Inc (AAPL.O) board member and chairman to the board of Intuit, and Todd Bradley, executive vice president of Hewlett-Packard Co (HPQ.N).

The fund's managers intend to purchase minority equity investments in privately held companies that trade on online secondary markets such as Sharespost and SecondMarket, where shares of Facebook, Twitter, Zynga and LinkedIn have briskly traded.

Why ESTE may be the Next Big Oil Momentum Stock

Earthstone Energy, Inc. (ESTE) completed a reverse split on January 3, 2011 in order to get listed on the Nasdaq Read Press Release. That left them with only 1.7m shares outstanding and a public float of 1.2m See Bloomberg.

ESTE had EPS for the last 9 months of $0.69. Last quarter they had a one time deferred tax adjustment for statutory depletion. EBITDA grew to $2.3m for the first 9 months or $1.35 EBITDA per share for the first 9 months. The oil revenue for the first 9 months has been booked at an average price of $69 per barrel. (Recently oil is $98 per barrel). Read 10-Q.

The Company is expanding with new wells in the Bakken territory. "The Company continues to pursue its strategy of drilling non-operated horizontal Bakken wells along with the acquisition of producing properties in the Montana and North Dakota portions of the Williston basin." Read Press Release. See Company Press Releases

Bakken oil stocks have exploded in the past year. BEXP, CLR, NOG are 3 of them.

BEXP and ESTE are partners:

DENVER, Sept. 23 -- EARTHSTONE ENERGY, INC. (OTC Bulletin Board: BSIC.ob old ESTE symbol ) reported Panther Energy Company, LLC, its
majority partner in the Banks Field, has sold its interest in the field, comprising nearly thirteen thousand gross mineral acres, to Brigham
Exploration Company. This sale does not affect Earthstone's leasehold rights in the area and Earthstone expects to retain its oil and gas
interests. As in the past Earthstone intends to participate in new wells proposed by Brigham, or others, that "pool or space" our leasehold rights
within spacing units they operate.

"We are not just excited by this development, we are ecstatic," commented Ray Singleton, president of Earthstone. "Brigham is on the
forefront of the application of new stimulation technology in Bakken wells and has been instrumental in demonstrating the economic viability
of this area of the Williston basin. With Brigham now involved, we expect the pace of development to heat up. Based on conversations with
Brigham, we anticipate drilling one well, possibly two, on this acreage before the end of the calendar year." Read Article

CLR is at $69 and is expected to do $2.34 EPS this year for a P/E of 30 See Numbers

BEXP is at $35 and is expected to do $1.08 EPS this year for a P/E of 33 See Numbers

NOG is at $31 and is expected to do $0.36 EPS this year for a P/E of 88
See Numbers

Let's assume that ESTE has a conservative $1 EPS run rate. Applying the P/E ratios of CLR, BEXP, and NOG would give ESTE a price range of $30 to $88. Throw in the fact this has a minuscule float and number of outstanding shares and that is why I think ESTE has potential to be the next big oil momentum stock. I am long at $19.

Low float stocks can be volatile and dangerous and are not for chasing or large positions in my opinion.

Thursday, February 24, 2011

in ESTE $19 new low float profitable oil trade

Warning low float and thinly traded not for large positions for me.

.69 EPS last 9 m months
Float 1.2m
O/S 1.7m

Thinking this could be the new MXC but will be very volatile.

Earthstone Energy Inc. acquires, exploits, develops, and operates oil and natural gas properties. The Company's exploration activities are located in the North Dakota and Montana portions of the Williston basin, the Denver-Julesburg basin of Colorado, the southern portions of Texas, and along the on-shore portions of the Gulf Coast.

Again, My messages are not investment advice, investment solicitation or the like. Do not take action based on my messages. I do not guarantee or make claims to the accuracy of anything I post. I may buy or sell any securities I mention at anytime, even prior to posting. It is my opinion, that individuals should perform their own due diligence before investing in any stock at anytime and not base decisions on messages posted by other individuals. Individuals should assume 100% responsibility for their own investing. My messages are for my own entertainment only. LOW FLOAT stocks in particular can be volatile and are not for new traders in my opinion. I am not a registered investment advisor in any shape or form, please do not ask me for ANY investment advice.

Welcome to, blog home of Superman. Purpose of this blog is for me to discuss my trades and stock ideas (As well as opinions and rants on stock market related issues). I will mention the date and price I enter. As far as exits, I always try to take half off when I have some profit and if I believe in the stock, let the rest run further. I always also use mental stop limits, at which time I would exit and minimize any losses. I do not like to give price targets unless I can support them by P/E in some way or by comparison to another stock. I just post stock trades and ideas that I believe will go higher (or lower for shorts) and the reason I believe that. Individuals should have their own strategies for managing profits and losses. My stock picks tend to NOT be daytrades at all and many take time to move. I am not an investment advisor and this blog should not be considered or followed as investment advice.
