Please note that due to factors including low market capitalization and/or insufficient public float, we consider Advanced Environmental Recycling and WidomTree to be small-cap stocks. You should be aware that such stocks are subject to more risk than stocks of larger companies, including greater volatility, lower liquidity and less publicly available information, and that postings such as this one can have an effect on their stock prices.
