It's always good to know real experts, especially people who can simplify complex things in specialized areas.

I have a friend/acquaintance who ended up becoming an "expert" in private radio/tv antennas. When she was a new lawyer she got handed a case where a good client of the firm had put up a 40ft ham radio tower in his backyard and the HOA wasn't happy. She checked a few things, told him she might be able to save the tower, but it could be very expensive, so how far was he willing to go. He gave her a pretty shocking number as a probable limit to the cost. (I think it was something like 5 million!)
Using that she approached the HOA and said they would probably win, but he was willing to go as far as $X to fight it and the choice was theirs.

Tower approved!

Then they started getting requests from his also rich radio friends... So she became the go-to person for radio antennas in backyards.

Auditors and SEC would sign off as long as there is not enough information to determine the extent of the liability.

Would like to see the Q&A transcript for the Q if they have earnings calls. Is there any brokers that cover them?
The company is not covered by any major (or minor) sell side research firms. Its just too small, illiquid and tightly held for an investment bank to research. The only company that covers it research wise is a general IR firm. Seeking Alpha will help get the word out but larger Wall Street firms typically take their view with a grain of salt.

It wouldn't surprise me if the guy who wrote the article has already closed out his put position. The open interest has dropped significantly on the January 2020 puts. Obviously the article was an attempt to get a run on the stock and for a trading opportunity for him. The high of the day was $19.72 the day of the article so it will be interesting to see if CLCT can get through there. If it does they are going run this right back up as the shorts cover.

For those that don't know options essentially it is a zero sum game. Somebody wins and somebody loses. When the open interest drops that means someone has cleared out their trade. Judging by the action in the puts the buyers are doomed. The bid ask spread on the January 2020 $15's is $0.60 by $1.25 and you would have to be a total moron to buy an option with such a low open interest and a spread that puts you down over 50% the second you buy. Many options you can get executed in the spread but on options like this there is no incentive with such low liquidity.

CLCT is going to need some really bad news to break below $17.55. There was huge volume that came into the stock on May 2nd and it bounced right off that level on this bear raid.

As I just posted elsewhere CLCT is back around 19.50. It's the Wild West out there and nothing stops people from posting short attacks.

Not familiar with this stock but just looked it up and there is huge short interest and it increased by over 20% the last update. My system is showing just under 25% of the float short and nearly 25 million shares.

This is a dangerous stock that is for sure looking at the longer term chart. Good luck with your trade.

You would never know anything was going on looking at this chart. This could get back to $21 in a blink of an eye and $17.65 is a long ways from there and if it does the puts will be toast.
