The problem is that I dont see a path to profitability I mean look at the margins on fuels, they are razor thin, how they ever going to make any money, they have the sales, but even the sales are not increasing. I do feel the price is back down to attractive levels, I'd buy maybe between 6 - 7 cents at this point just for a trade which could happen at any time.
I dunno….I see a willingness to clean up with little to no effort. I see no mentions on social media and I see no effort on the company’s behalf. BERI seems as likely to revisit .20+ as it does it’s lows again
Especially if they continue disclosing numbers that make a person’s head spin
So whether that selling weeks ago was a debt holder or tired open market money reacting to float growth…..it was a blatant over reaction. And let’s not act like the float isn’t still small. Really small
Or possibly some massively dilutive financing which seems more likely...
appears a major capitulation happened with record sell volume the last 2 days
Marathon is big company surprised no movement on that news, people sleeping?
There use to be a lot of post from individual people now it’s non existent just a bunch of spam
From the company or from an individual?

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
The Company has provided in this release certain non-GAAP financial measures, including Adjusted EBITDA, to supplement the consolidated financial statements, which are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("GAAP"). The Company Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income (loss) adjusted to exclude interest expense (income), net, provision for income taxes, gain on extinguishment of term debt, depreciation and amortization expense, other expense, net and stock-based compensation expense.
Management uses these financial metrics internally in analyzing the Company's financial results to assess operational performance and to determine the Company's future capital requirements. The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these financial metrics in assessing our performance and when planning, forecasting and analyzing future periods. The Company believes these financial metrics are useful to investors and others to understand and evaluate the Company's operating results and it allows for a more meaningful comparison between the Company's performance and that of competitors. Our use of Adjusted EBITDA has limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider this performance measure in isolation from or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Some of these limitations are that Adjusted EBITDA does not reflect: cash capital expenditures for assets underlying depreciation and amortization expense that may need to be replaced or for new capital expenditures; interest income (expense), net; other income, net; the potentially dilutive impact of stock-based compensation; gain on the extinguishment of term debt; and the provision for income taxes. Other companies, including companies in our industry, may calculate Adjusted EBITDA differently, which reduces its usefulness as a comparative measure.
Because of these limitations, you should consider these financial metrics along with other financial performance measures, including total revenues, subscription revenue, deferred revenue, net income (loss), cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, net cash used in operating activities and our financial results presented in accordance with GAAP.

this turned out to be a huge winner for me by trading the large swings and buying low, thru beginning of 2023 when I have cleared my position, and I did this even missing a portion of the big upswings, which confirms again that you dont need to be perfect with your entry and exit points, but importantly to buy heavier at perceived bottoms.
Going forward, given a bear market, I would be a buyer in the .15 to .25 range, with larger quantity towards the lower part of the range as always. I like what they are doing and they should be successful.
Waiting to free up some $$ and I'll be looking to add much more. Already have a very nice position, but this could become a real gem.
yeah that makes sense thanks, if it goes to the low 20s I would also buy more.
You're not alone, just not worth posting about till we hear more from the company. They're being quiet, but I think we'll see a Nas listing announced, so I'm not going anywhere. I bought more on this pullback, if it drops lower it's just a better buy.
whats going on here, people were just ultra bullish but posting has all but dried up. I just took out the 5364 shares at .251 on the ask, which immediately moved up to 32 cents, we'll see what happens but this is dissapointing that everyone was cheerleading and now I am the only one left, as I was the only one at the start when it was down at 8 cents not long ago.
Company is being quiet, but they are growing fast. Nas is coming, just a matter of when???
Wowza!!! Look at them spreads, wide open.
Who knows, not going to make any predictions moving forward. I am holding for some before Nasdaq listing and the rest after they debut. I am in no hurry to sell at this juncture.
BERI, what will it do on Monday ? crazy action on Friday jumping back and forth between .0035 and .0042 .
BAA BAA .43 0n the ask as back up we go
I added at .325, feel the same way.
these always pull back, every time, did i think it would come down this far, hmm, yes I guess I did and was right, could it go down further, certainly, anyway bought at .355 and will buy at .31, .27, etc. if it comes down to those levels, there is no way to know one way or another if it will but its possible
People chasing other tickers. Who knows they may get lucky, I am waiting for a dip to mid 20's high 20's to double down if they want to continue selling.
Yes, a nice news like starting their own refinery, or when they anticipate Nasdaq listing and earnings projections for next year with acquisitions.. But special meetings are geared towards capital structure of the stock amongst other things, such as, stock compensation to the board usually.
special meeting oct 14 at 9am in Knoxville . maybe we can get some good news and stop this madness. BERI
He says that about all his stocks
BERI, its a buyers opportunity imo, grabed a few more today.hold on to those $$$$$$ with both hands.
Cavalry again, get a life bud. This board has about 6 active posters, cavalry??? Simply tried to share some info relevant to this stock as CEO is same in both and speaks highly about both. GVSI is definitely leading out of the gate, but owning more than 1 horse in a race is not necessarily a bad idea...
This is simply a no brainer for me and to some, first off, they have aspirations to debut on Nasdaq, most know, the threshold to be listed on Nasdaq is minimum $4.00, amongst other things, such as, shareholder base, shareholder equity and a few things in the mix, but what it tells, this stock not only will go to $4.00, it will go higher, just to give them the cushion, somewhere between 6-8 dollars is given overtime, the most important that I know the company is growing at a very fast pace with acquisitions, which tells me, they want to be in line with their competitor whose earnings are 2 billion dollars annually. I am not encouraging anyone to hold, sell nor buy, I am just pointing out the potential. I am holding a considerable position and I don't plan on parting away with my shares, until at least with half to Nasdaq, the other half I plan on selling between 2-3 dollars. This is by far the best OTC this year, I have come across.
