The downside, and subsequent trading halted, in Longwei Petroleum (NYSE: LPH) is related to a negative article from Geoinvesting.com on SeekingAlpha calling the company "The Most Brazen China-Based U.S. Listed RTO To Date."

From the report:
"Unfortunately for owners of LPH stock, we have determined that the company's purported business operations are massively overstated and a brazen fraud, on an order of magnitude unmatched before by any China-based companies we have seen. Furthermore, we have no faith in LPH's auditor, Anderson Bradshaw. This is because the firm's head of quality control, Russell Anderson, was the audit partner of YUII while he worked at Child, Van, Wagoner & Bradshaw. Russell failed to detect the massive YUII fraud we uncovered and did not resign until the YUII Chairman admitted fraud 5 days after we exposed them. Our exposé led to YUII's delisting. LPH stock in our opinion is virtually worthless, completely un-investable and should be immediately delisted by the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE"). We are sending all of our evidence to the NYSE and other securities regulators, just as we have done in prior cases."
