Confident Investor comments: At this price and at this time, I do not think that a Confident Investor can confidently invest in this stock. I know that some people invest in this company as a "green" play but I cannot sanction that strategy. Also, even though the company's target stock price is higher than it is currently trading, I cannot recommend this stock as a confident investment.
