As per many brokerages today it seems like trading will continue again tomorrow. The new certificate have been approved, the issue with DTCC is resolved and from what I know the Transfer Agent is right now busy sending all the shares out to current shareholders.

Here's how the new certificate looks like for OPHI:

Some brokers got their shares delivered this afternoon, and we saw some healthy trading taking place today. I suspect it will get more activity in the coming days/weeks/months as people realize the potential here I think.

OPHI has so many things in the work right now, it will be very interesting to see the growth from here. I expect a nice correction once that audit is done.

Will be interesting to see the new E-commerce website launch next week as per the latest PR. That additional revenue-stream along with the increased transparency will probably serve as a kick-start for OPHI's expansion.

With my own valuation in mind (based on the attorney-verified filing for the 10 months ended October 2010) I think todays action is just the beginning of much more to come.
As quoted below I expect a steady climb to at least $.50 with the audit pending, and then it might practically take off depending on what ground-breaking news the company announce.

OPHI had $1,492,694 in revenues for the 10 months ended October 31, 2010. So lets say the revenues for 2010 could be approximately $1,500,000 conservatively thinking.

With a market capitalization in direct relation to the revenues for instance, that would give us a price per share of:
$1,500,000 / 2,992,501 O/S = ~ $.50 price per share.

While looking at that threshold-list on which OPHI appear, keep these new regulations in mind:

"Regulatory Notice 10-48" go into effect February 28, 2011:
Regulatory Notice 10-48

Amendments to FINRA Trade Reporting and OATS Rules to Reinstitute Short Sale Exempt Marking and to Require Price and Short Exempt Identifier on Route Reports

Effective Date: November 10, 2010

Executive Summary

The SEC has approved a FINRA rule change that, among other things, reinstitutes the short sale exempt marking category for trade reports to a FINRA trade reporting facility (TRF) or to FINRA’s Alternative Display Facility (ADF) (together, “FINRA Facilities”). The rule change also requires FINRA Order Audit Trail System (OATS) route reports to include price and a short exempt identifier, if applicable. The amendments are effective on November 10, 2010, consistent with the compliance date of the amendments to SEC Regulation SHO.

The text of the amendments are available in the FINRA Manual at FINRA - Rules and Regulations - FINRA Manual Online.

Questions regarding this Notice should be directed to:
FINRA Operations at (866) 776-0800; or
OATS Helpdesk at (800) 321-6273
Racquel Russell, Assistant General Counsel, Office of General Counsel, at (202) 728-8363.

The effective date was extended to February 28, 2011.
(source: FINRA - Regulatory Notice 10-48 )

You can all view the full notice from October 2010 in PDF-format here below:
http://www.finra.org/web/groups/indu...es/p122254.pdf

From the report it's clear that the upcoming regulations also will apply to stocks trading on the OTC from here on:
Consistent with these amendments to Regulation SHO, FINRA is reinstituting the
“short sale exempt” marking category in FINRA’s trade reporting rules for over-the-counter transactions in NMS stocks. Thus, firms must indicate on trade reports submitted to a FINRA Facility if a transaction is “short exempt,” consistent with
Regulation SHO.
Look at this comment by Dr. Jim Decosta:
There’s 3 new laws gaining attention in the NSS market reform arena: FINRA 4320 goes into effect on 2/28/11. It mandates 13 day buy-ins for open delivery failures FINALLY applying to shares of non-reporting corporations. FINRA 2010-043, also starting on 2/28/11 reinstates the “short sale exempt” (SSE) marking requirements for trade reporting and the OATS system. Those MMs accessing the bona fide MM exemption from executing pre-borrows or “locates” before admittedly naked short sales must now FORMALLY acknowledge the accessing of that universally-abused exemption. Being that these trades are theoretically being made to “inject liquidity” then the excuse to hide the related trade data from the public’s eyes goes out the window. You can’t have it both ways and claim the bona fide MM exemption and later claim that the related trade data needs to be kept secret because it might reveal a “proprietary trading strategy”.

Truly bona fide MMs that are able to legally access that universally-abused exemption cover their naked short position on the next downtick after their short sale when buy side liquidity is in need of being ejected as share prices fall. The 3rd new rule which is in effect now states that the offers and bids that MMs post must be of approximately the same size. No longer can the offers be of 1 million shares and the offsetting bid good for the minimum 5,000 shares.

The verbiage in 4320 is especially well done as it FINALLY puts the clearing firms that aid and abet this crime wave on the spot. With the FFETF, which is made up of 25 different agencies, now on the scene the transparency has increased markedly. You can imagine how critical the lack of transparency is to a crime involving selling nonexistent securities and then refusing to ever deliver that which you sold AFTER being allowed access to the funds of the investor being defrauded.
Here are the links to the rules SR-FINRA-2010-028 and SR-FINRA-2010-043:
FINRA - SR-FINRA-2010-028
FINRA - SR-FINRA-2010-043)

Notice this part in particular from the text above:
"FINRA 4320 goes into effect on 2/28/11. It mandates 13 day buy-ins for open delivery failures FINALLY applying to shares of non-reporting corporations."
Look at the history of Fail-To-Deliver with the old ticker AMSZ (symbol before the reverse merger), obviously there was some NSS going on.

Add 1 + 1 (the history of FTD's, with the current threshold list) and I guess we all could guess a probable scenario here. Anyone heard of the expression "Short Squeeze"?

OPHI on threshold-list for 5 consecutive days now, as per OPHI Organic Plant Health, Inc.: Short Sale Data, Days to Cover for Organic Plant Health, Inc. - OTCMarkets.com
Date Reg SHO Threshold Flag
Feb 25, 2011 Yes
Feb 24, 2011 Yes
Feb 23, 2011 Yes
Feb 22, 2011 Yes
Feb 18, 2011 Yes
50 reported Fails-to-deliver as per the SEC ( Fails-to-Deliver Data ) when stock traded as AMSZ, a high short-interest for the past months as per FINRA ( February 2011 Reg SHO Daily Files )
And now, after the stock went through a reorganization the new symbol and CUSIP appear on the NASDAQ-threshold list consecutively.

I know the whole "short-story" is way overused with stocks in general, and penny-stocks in particular, but people, think about the new regulations that goes into effect today: FINRA - Regulatory Notice 10-48, and adjust the data here with OPHI to those regulations.
