    Beware ODC!

    In my informed opinion, this company's health depends on its claim on its main natural resource. Thing is, the company doesn't own much of this resource outright and is dependent on mineral lease agreements, according to its filings. It looks like any problems with a small number of leaseholders could stop the company in its tracks. Its other dependancy is fossil fuel, there is no other way to produce the product other than burning massive amounts. I won't be investing and I'm surprised this publication is so positive.
