    Why I'd avoid this stock here

    The stock has gone up quite a bit over the past several days and then Cramer tells people to buy on top of substantial speculative gain!

    In the past I researched going the camera route instead of having a colonoscopy. First, the prep is still needed. The colon has to be empty in order for pictures to show anything. If a polyp or anything else needs to be removed, the invasive procedure is still needed. Also, veteran gastroenterologists believe the invasive procedure is more conclusive.

    I wouldn't want to bet my future colon health on a possibly inferior procedure.

    Remember that problems with some drugs, devices, etc. don't become apparent until used in the general population. How many doctors and hospitals will be eager to stake their reputations and their patients' health on a speculative procedure?

    I don't hold a position in this stock, either way, and I don't intend to. A huge short position, at least as of mid-May, may account for a huge move up. The question is when does the musical chairs music stop after Cramer's presentation on national t.v.. Either I walked into the room just in time to alert people or in time to interfere with moves people want to make. Over and out.
