History Repeats at Altair

Seth Jayson: Let me begin by admitting that, in some ways, I hesitate to write this article. It focuses on a very small company, Altair Nanotechnologies (Nasdaq: ALTI), which carries a market cap of only $165 million. But the flashy nano-name along with Altair's prodigious PR department have combined to make the loss-generating Nevada concern one of the most volatile issues around, able to swing 100% or more in a single day. When that happens -- and individual investors lose their shirts on the inevitable letdown -- well, stuff needs to be said.
