    Fanofstan, how did you come by your appreciation of the company? Are you a past or present employee or an acquaintance of one, a user of their products or just an investor? From your posts I understand that you have a core position that you trade around, but what initially caught your eye?

    I have been following the company for a few years and have been in and out a couple of times for small moves, but picked up a more serious position on the recent downturn and plan on holding

    Good luck.

    • I am a diabetic and use the produc, I was also very familair withy the Medtronic product. This product is vastly superior and he folks I deal with there are superb in all areas of customer support. I also talk with my Endocrinologist regualrly to see how the competition is stacking up and I am the CEO of a Pharmacuetical ocmpany so I am wired into the industry. I absolutely love this company. I own 200,000 shares and my cost basis is virtually zero if you factor in past gains. I styarted buy it 4-5 years ago at $7 and had a nice position and hten the market crashed and it went to $1.78. I bought 150,000 share below $2.50 and had 350,000 at one point. I like a core posiiton of around 200,000 and peeled aton of it at $13.

      I truly beleoive this stock sees mid 20's with 18 months and is eventually bought out at 30 or above. You could not have a better market to be addressing than diabetes, it is the fastest growing segment of health care.
