    Big Earnings Upside on Production Output Expected

    China machines online soon. Now cranking three shifts a day in US and two in China - nothing is stopping them from reaching their output numbers and more. Listen to the CC on Tuesday for more!

    • There is a huge downside to this also. I'm a type 1 diabetic and was here to learn more about this company. I am going to switch to a pump in the next month or so and am researching pumps. Although I really like this pump I have read a lot about POD failures. They were my #1 my choice so far until I read about manufacturing in China. My wife worked for a company that moved their manufacturing to China (Beijing). Their quality was significantly impacted. Once they start having more POD failures than before it will only affect this company negatively.

    • Quantity is not the problem. Getting COGS down to a respectable level is the problem. Even with huge quantities from China (200k per month) they will only be at $15 per pod. With pod price at ~$30, this looks like 50 % Gross margin. Not a good place to be as a med device company.
