The company posted $107.8 million or $1.43 per share in net income for the three months ended June 30, compared to a loss of -$28.2 million or -49 cents per share in the same period last year. The Sacramento-based firm recorded a $119.4 million non-cash gain tied to production subsidiaries’ emergence from bankruptcy, and net sales increased by 9.5% to $76.6 million. PEIX is now worth watching on Wednesday and a close above $.85 would be very bullish. The technical chart below shows bullish signal as %K line is now on top of %D line and MACD is on top of zero. There could be some profit taking as the stock seems to rise too quickly in a short time. However, now that PEIX’s shares are above the 50-day moving average, we should see the trend continue to be upward.
