hotdog:  I don't think it probably was planned that the company would be profitable at this time.  More important at this earlier stage was to develop the expertise and reputation for quality products in preparation for what should be happening over the next year.  My thinking is that the fact that the company has not yet been profitable is what is confusing so many in the market.  They just don't take the time to understand this unique story that isn't anywhere near approximated by another company in the ree space.  It is that which, in my opinion, holds the upward explosive sp potential that will be undeniable with release of the PEA.  Look first and soon for a turn to a small profit and then we should know, along with the PEA, that this all actually is going to happen.  Again, the only remaining question is how much of this will today's shareholders be aloud to enjoy.
