Commody prices have sunk, China's economy isn't doing so hot which reduces demand for commodies, the companies debt to income ratio has gone over 1, and investors are overreacting to anything and everything. Long term, I think this is still a good investment because all the latter should improve. If you start to get too freaked, consider how mutual funds are doing. Even they are tanking and they are supposed to the more secure investment because they are diversified. I suggest patients, things will get better as has been shown throughout the history of the market.

This stock follows the price of patinum to a large degree.

Anyone who is short would be a fool not to close their position at $6.50. This one can't go much lower, maybe $0.50-$0.75, and MEA would sooner rise $1.00-$2.00 from these levels then decline another $0.50.

It appears this one has turned the corner and is in recovery mode.
