Spotlight: MBLX

|Includes:Metabolix, Inc. (MBLX)

If you haven't take a look at this stock, you should.  In a nutshell, Metabolix uses bioengineering to fashion materials like organic plastics.  Note that these products are biodegradable and not petrolium based, a great duet.
MBLX has a partnership with Archer-Daniels Midland.  The opening of their first production plant was delayed, casting the stock into a serious downtrend as of 11/30/07.  Over that period, MBLX has put in lower lows and lower highs:

Also, a drop in oil prices pulled MBLX down as consumer demand for petrol-alternatives waned.  Finally, as a micro-cap, they were impacted throught the credit crisis.

Where we stand today, a new uptrend (a/o 6/15) has been established.  If the price rips through $12 before the Slow Stochastic Oscillator %K reverses down, MBLX will enter a topside breakout.  If it shys away, the divergence between the Stochastic and the price tops forcasts a ST shakeout before resuming its hike back up:

If you're in on the stock already, I recommend selling to avoid the upcoming downtrend.  VWAP a/o 12:43 on 9/11 is only $11.82.  Doesn't look like there's enough demand to push it across the $12 resistance, which it's tested 3 times intraday without breaching.
Nevertheless, the LT trend has certainly turned after the lower-lows/lower-highs pattern was broken on 6/15.
