Looks interesting, and it's trading closer to the 52 week low than the highs.

Solazyme continues to scale up, and the losses scale accordingly. Trust me, the process industry is one of the most expensive manufacturing industries there is, and there is no easy path to "scaling up". I should know, I work in the process industry... I just don't see this method of manufacturing as viable in the year 2014. Yes, maybe in 3014 if we are still around, but for now, this technology needs to be mothballed.

Will be rocky for a while but this stock will pay off for the long term investor.

Interesting products and well structured strategy will NOT trump losses in the short. I like the longer term speculative possibilities but not the metrics in the short term. Maybe will change my opinion at lower prices but not at the ridiculous values current while facing an inevitable whole market short term correction... stay tuned...

Solazyme is the best company in the world. It has a product no other company or person would ever think possible. Oil out of seaweed. =]

Management just sold 5 million shares in a restricted offering at $0.001 per share. They did this and gave themselves almost $70 million. There has been net insider share selling for the last twelve months according to Standard & Poor's. Does anyone understand why they need this additional "tax" on shareholders?

If this stock can work its way into even the smallest slice of the gas guzzling pie known as American transportation, this is an easy recommendation. I'm not optimistic this will move anywhere in the next year, but I'm continuously adding before it begins.

This is leading edge technology in an energy industry where the big boys get subsidies. I bought now, after watching this stock for about a year, because 2 things converged: consumer sentiment is shifting that will favor this technology and an actual manufacturing plant was opened in Iowa. This equity is one of two stocks that represent more potential than tangible products slice of my investment pie.

Clinton and Galvin on-line, Moema to be on-line shortly. Positive earnings expected 2015. Skies the limit when it comes to replacing traditional oils for cosmetics, food. Lower profit margins will make replacement of jet fuel, diesel marine a lower company priority.

They are going after oils first, not fuels. Much more profit potential. New plants coming on line, lots of customers all point toward a great profit story for 2014 and beyond.

This company has compelling technology and patents in several key areas. It could become one of those save-the-earth industries that become an integral part of our economy and survival.

OK, as just one example of the things this company is doing to stand out as an innovator-they won the prestigious Marie Claire Excellence in Beauty Award-for those of you who never set foot in an airport with foreign press this may not mean much-but they are the Vogue of Europe and as such this award means adoption by mainstream women looking for premium cosmetics-you know, the real money maker in their basket of algae miracles. Bodes very well for their reputation. I think this company gets where to go and how to get there. The next few quarters will tell a lot as well given their scale up efforts.

SZYM looks like a prime candidate to be a many bagger within five years. It has unique technology, a large market, and is on the verge of starting commercial level production. SYZM’s uniqueness and attraction for me is its demonstrated ability to produce existing oils and tailor new oils, combined with its ability to develop marketing partnerships with market leaders (Dow Chemical, Bunge, ADM, Unilever). There is also potential to develop markets for tailored oils at costs unmatchable by existing technology. Management is young and ambitious, but appears to be capable in R&D, marketing and partnering. Risks include the fact that their technical methods and business ability are yet unproven in industrial scale production. Their ability to ramp up production to industrial levels will be tested this year as their plants are schedule to come on line. If they succeed, they should begin making profit, and the stock price should reflect both the income and the lowered risk. SYZM is a speculative investment, but I think the potential reward far outweighs the risk that the company will fall flat in either production or marketing. To increase the attractiveness, SZYM market cap is less than $800m and they are thinly covered by market researchers (five that I can see), and what coverage there is says to neutral or sell.
