I've been keeping away from this board because it always seems to take so much time and attention when it sucks me in, and the posters were getting downright inane for awhile, but...
Yes! That FDA move, assuming it was instigated by Align, was great. I literally laughed out loud when I read it. I think Align's been certified (voluntarily) by the FDA for many years, and we expended plenty of effort and went through those audits to maintain it, so I'm glad it turned into an ace up the sleeve. I don't even know what kind of process OC goes through now... can they sell their product provisionally without FDA approval until they can get certified?
Glad to see the ITC thing went forward as expected, too.
Although I sold 1/3 of my shares since it's been hovering above 8 for awhile and anything can happen, I'm still long ALGN. I think the fact that both ALGN and OC are showing growth just shows how amazing ALGN can be when/if OC loses and ALGN owns the whole enchilada.
