to this board seeking some comfort and rest from
the misery over at the plsia board and what do I
find? Nothing but this spam crap. Fortunately, the
epidemic is so bad that it will probably burn itself out
Those shit ads are extremely
annoying to me since I demand a clean place for our
discussion of one particular stock. The more ads come up
here the less interesting Yahoo! boards become. Since
at least 50% of the last couple postings were
unrelated ads and I don't see the situation improve any
time soon, I'm seriously considering switching to a
different place to discuss stocks. I'd even be willing to
pay a couple dollars. Everybody should send an email
to email@example.com and complain about
the current situation.
Is it true that a patent runs out after something
like 7 years allowing anyone to then copy it? If so,
just how long does BLTI have before others might
produce this product at perhaps a cheaper price?
BriteSmile Faces Widening Losses, Barron's
Lester, Pennsylvania, June 27 (Bloomberg) --
BriteSmile Inc., whose shares have risen this year from less
than $1 to a recent $12, faces widening losses and
stiff competition as the maker of a teeth-whitening
system seems unable to back up marketing claims and
won't disclose what chemicals are in its gel, Barron's
reported. The Lester, Pennsylvania-based company, which
said it plans to seek voluntary approval from the
American Dental Association, expects to become profitable
no earlier than its fiscal year ending March 2001 as
it plans to give away its machines for free and
split profits on whitening procedures done by dentists,
as well as expand its company-owned centers from
four. BriteSmile Chairman Anthony Pilaro said a dental
center must do about 30 of the $500 procedures a day to
be profitable; dental offices that offer
teeth-whitening services do about 15 procedures a year, the paper
On June 3, BriteSmile said Orthodontic
Centers of America Inc., which provides orthodontic
practice-management services, will offer BriteSmile's procedure
through its offices.

The volume is beginning to grow & those who sell
will forfeit the great profits of the future in return
for minor short term profits presently attainable.
The dilemma formed by this sell action will be for
those attempting to get back in at a lesser price then
their sale price. It will become increasingly more
difficult, if not impossible.
Selling BLTI now could be,
to say the least, "unwise".
