Alot of my readers already know that I have been following Pacific Ethanol Inc. (PEIX) very closely. I also invested in the company and recommended it at one point (back in December when it was near $10).

But with the huge amounts of insider selling that I reported on earlier (before the Wall Street Journal did) and now the new private placement, I am beginning to wonder what’s going on with Pacific Ethanol. I am still waiting for an update on the Madera plant and waiting to see the updated construction pictures as well. Another thing that caught my eye in the new release was the ‘enables investment in cellulose process technologies’.

Anyway, while I ponder Pacific Ethanol as an investment again here’s the list of investors who brought via the recent private placement:
