+ Watch GU
on My Watchlist
Company recently had a favorable decision on government taxation, also diversifying into recycling copper business will defiantly grow with an increased demand by Japan
This used to be a $1Billion+ company... Been following it for quite a while. I remember when they lost $10M plus in one quarter because they were essentially trading currencies. Management is pretty inept and sketchy. Look at CCGY instead...
Terribly run company
I need to know when to Sell. !!! I bot at present valu price of 12.50 !!!!!!!! Help!!!!!
http://seekingalpha.com/article/228425-gushan-environmental-energy-a-diamond-in-a-rough-patchI think they will escape the tax noose.
It's time to rise
put $1000 in real money and let it ride.
May take some time to see a pop in value but those who are patient will see great gains.
Solid company poised to grow once use of bio-diesel becomes mainstream. It's go green or die time for China.
Taking the risk only in CAPS. Upside potential and risk is high. Seems to be a big polluter in China. So much so that the PRC wants to tax them as an oil producer however they are withholding tax money until a decision is made. The PRC seems to shut them down whenever a major event occurs probably due to the pollution. My thought is due to this pollution they will not be exempt from taxes which will have a negative impact. It seems as though management is more concerned with the long term than the short term. They will risk massive amounts of potential revenue now to avoid having to pay taxes (which other biodiesel producers have to pay too) in the future. Maybe some good news seems their Shanghai plant will probably come back online by the end of the year. They are the largest producers of biodiesel in China. Logic alone dictates that they will survive due to this status, but their actions as a company hasn't been very commendable and will probably end up burning bridges and wasting potential revenue over small short term gains. There's other factors I don't like about this industry, but needless to say I believe they will earn or adjust their way out of trouble and reclaim their market share.
If Chinal rescinds the added tax then, watchout
Bought this sometime ago and still holding. I have to believe that China needs all the fuel it can get. Once the World Trade show is over production will go back up and so will the stock.
Hope tied my investment to this bottom dweller for the worst four months; you can't couple communist corruption, totalitarian anti-hedonism, and...robust environmentalism and concoct a game winning company. Big Brother doesn't RECYCLE! He froths and hates and bathes in his garbage!But seriously, the conclusion that caused me to sell: there's better ways to invest in alternative energy, especially when i don't read Mandarin.
wIth chinas massive need for fuel etc...this biodiesel company has massive room for growth.
Fantastic opportunity! :)
I think GU is risky, but attractively priced. The China/emerging market/political risk is hard to quantify. The biodiesel price/market risk is also hard to quantify and is a wash, as I think that prices can either go up or down.However, due to timely IPO, they have a ton of cash. Given this financial strength, they will likely survive until a high price environment returns. If this happens, the stock should do well. I think it is likely Oil will spike in the next five years, so I think that this stock is likely to outperform in the next five years.
I hate to pick companies that are not currently making money, but it appears Gushan's depressed earnings come from a disputable tax provision and the general decline in oil prices last year. Given the strong balance sheet and need for alternative fuels, I would say the upside potential outweighs the downside risk here.
most of their reported loss last quarter had to do with a provision for a new consumption tax that will probably not have to be paid. it looks like there was some miscommunication between the provincial and central governments about whether biodiesel was to be included... it's pretty clear that the tax is meant to discourage the use of fossil fuels and encourage growth in biodiesel usage, so the matter should be resolved shortly. GU is sitting on over 100 million in cash, plus 10 million more once the tax situation is cleared up, and more plants coming online will increase capacity from 340,000 tons now to 500,000 tons by early 2010. They have no outstanding bank loans, so their financial position is pretty strong. they made a profit every quarter of their existence until the price of oil collapsed recently. it looks like oil is on its way back up, and if not the govt will be taxing it to encourage growth of alternative fuels. they have paid out two small yearly dividends, which tells me management plans to return value to its shareholders in the long run. not much downside here, and in the fullness of time this could be a 5 or 10 bagger.
Bought in around $2 and forgot to enter my pick. For China, in some respects, it's easy being green. Emphasis on health in China, plus green thrust converges in this stock.
