  • Just picked up 800 shares at 3 7/16. Will double up if we drop further into the 2 area. I expect MS to get FDA approval very shortly, and will likely pop up to $6.

    <<<<<....missing something. you,
    the dentist, attempt to "control the flow" with your
    thumb, which is 4" from the end of the needle. your hand
    is not in contact with the patient's face...there is
    no colateral movement. the patient is nervous. as
    you know, the various density of the tissues vary
    greatly depending on the site of injection. as good as
    you (or any other dentist) are, you really have no
    idea what's going on at the other end of that needle.
    maybe you are good (many are not)...maybe you are
    caring (many are not)...maybe you get lucky (many
    don't), but given these factors, it is IMPOSSIBLE to
    consistantly give painless injections.

    it was once
    impossible to consistantly write neatly too....then along
    came the typewriter. the wand is that typewriter. the
    computer controls the flow rate (which, by the way is
    patented). the density of the tissue is irrevelant - the
    computer doesn't care. the pencil grip allows you to
    purchase your hand on the patients face, achieving
    colateral movement. the patient is relaxed (if you do it
    right - the patient may not even know he or she is
    getting an injection!!! - try it - the wand after all
    looks like any other instrument, as opposed to a
    silicone gun!!). the end result is astonishing!! -
    consistant pain free injections.

    by the way, time is
    saved because the wand achieves a 100% hit rate - on
    any injection. it can also be used as a "paint brush"
    to desensitize areas for procedures as simple as
    cleaning. >>>>>

    For a company that has nothing going for it, MS
    is up more than 300% since January. Turn arounds do
    happen. I was once invested in a company called cytogen
    for about 3 years. It was the biggest dog I have ever
    owned. About a month ago it went from around $2 to a
    high of $22. I'm not saying MS will do the same, but
    the recent action in MS does tend to point towards a
    greater move upward. I will be buying back in tomorrow.
    Good luck to all.

    You do not appear to be an investor in MS, and
    based on your last post that surprises me. Are you not
    aware that the Wand will be approved shortly for use
    for other medical procedures, other than dentistry.
    You state that the Wand does in fact work well, it is
    just that dentists are basically cheap compared to
    other medical professionals. Well, it would seem to me
    if the Wand does in fact work well, and other
    medical professionals will soon be able to use the Wand,
    this points to increasing revenues for MS.

    Should I buy back in or move on to bigger and
    better stocks? With only one product it would seem that
    growth may be limited. However, I am fairly certain FDA
    approval will provide a nice pop up to the $6 area again.
    If MS stilkl sits around $3 - $4 by Thursday, I will
    buy back in.

  • I sold today for a $1700 profit. Although I
    strongly believe there is still much more upside potential
    in the near term. FDA approval should be any day
    now. If MS drops back a buck I will buy back in. If I
    miss the big run, I will curse myself for selling too
    soon. Good luck and happy investing.

    MS Has Been Rated "Buy"

    I see that you are likely shorting MS. My
    condolences to you. With the way all these little companies
    are moving up these days, I would say shorting MS, as
    I'm sure you have already found out, is not a wise
    idea. My limited research with led me to view you as a
    short, is based on the following
    post:

    <<<<Good to have you back.
    You are one of the few with
    knowledge about the Wand.
    This board is full of hype
    about an item that dentists (and physicians) don't
    want...or need.
    You understand that. And with that
    understanding you rightfully conclude that there is no future
    for the company.
    Do not stay away so long
    again..."THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE"...and you speak
    it!!!!>>>>

    Bought MS today

    by NYGUY516 Mar 1, 2000 8:26 PM
    NYGUY516 NYGUY516 Mar 2, 2000 8:39 AM Flag

    I actually agree with you. I found out about MS
    through a tip. I don't normally buy tips, but I watched
    this one go from $1.25 to $4. All that I do know is
    that MS is supposedly very close to FDA approval, for
    sale of the Wand to medical fields other than dental.
    So your right, my investment in MS probably was not
    the brightest, with what little knowledge I have
    about the company and is products. From my own research
    all I have discovered is:

    1) pending FDA
    approval.
    2) increasing sales of the Wand due to direct
    marketing.
    3) about 600,000 in short interest.
    4) 8 million
    shares outstanding.
    5) 4 million shares in the
    float.
    6) some insider buying betweeen .75 and
    $2.25.

    If you are not a short and can provide me with some
    valuable information about their products, I would
    appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

    I bought in today, 1700 shares at an average cost
    of about $4. Not the best price obviously, but I'm
    up. Can anyone tell me what procedures the Wand will
    be used on once they get FDA approval for treatments
    outside the dental arena? Will the Wand be used for
    simple procedures such as a simple shot for tetnus, TB,
    vaccines, etc...? Or is the Wand designed for much more
    complicated medical procedures. Also, does MS have any other
    products to offer, I couldn't find any information
    concerning other products being offered or in their
    pipeline. Thanks in advance.

    MS Has Been Rated "Buy"

    It seems that MS has officially stated that there
    has been an increase in disposable orders, due to
    their direct marketing efforts. As well, revenue from
    the sales of wand units in the fourth quarter has
    exceeded those of the first three quarters combined.
    Doesn't this sound very bullish for MS. Perhaps there
    direct markeing efforts are much better than 100
    salespeople knocking on doors. It does seem a bit strange
    that it has taken 3 plus years to gain market
    acceptance, but that is what their recent news piece seems to
    say. Someone on this board had mentioned an article
    that had appeared in "Popular Mechanics" concerning
    MS, can you post a link. Thanks.

    I am not currently invested in MS, but I have
    heard this stock should go to at least $6 with FDA
    approval. As far as "needle phobic" patients are concerned,
    I would think that just about all children would
    fall into that category. If a pediatrician was to
    purchase one of these wands, wouldn't that be an added
    bonus for his/her practice. As well, didn't the company
    just say that they have pulled in more revenue in the
    fourth quarter from sales of the wand, than they had in
    the first three quarters combined? Or were these
    sales simply for the disposable part of the wand, which
    I believe only cost about $1 apiece? I may invest
    in MS in the coming week, but would like to know
    more. Thanks in advance.

    Future?

    by poverz Dec 3, 1999 2:03 PM

    The following is a commentary from Thomson
    Invest:

    WMI -- Waste Mgmnt -- Industrial Goods
    09-Dec-99
    11:40:03 The beleaguered environmental services firm,
    Waste Management has popped up as one of the most
    active stocks in the institutional pre-trade market. The
    stock, which was once a regular on the I-Watch Most
    Active list, has been plagued by weak earnings
    performance in the second and third quarters of this year.
    Further, while many analysts applauded recent changes in
    senior management, the Street remains unsure of whether
    or not the new management will be able to turn the
    firm around. The stock is hovering near yesterday's
    close at $15 1/2 on volume of 1.7 million shares.
    I-Watch shows a strong volume of Super Bids at prices
    between $15 and $15 1/2 which has thus far kept the stock
    out of negative territory. However, there's not a
    whole lot of conviction in the actions of the bidders.
    These institutions are looking to take in large blocks
    at discounted prices and they are unwilling to pay
    up for stock. This suggests limited upside to
    today's session. Additionally, should these buyers fill
    their orders, the stock could dip lower. However, the
    fact that there is a steady stream of bids from
    value-oriented institutions indicates they believe the stock has
    approached a bottom. If this action persists over the next
    few days/weeks, it could set the stage for a base for
    a price rebound.

    Question for "old timers"

    NYGUY516 NYGUY516 Nov 21, 1999 8:46 AM Flag

    A regret this year? No, not selling a big chunk
    of his largest position, AOL. Rather he regrets what
    he did with the proceeds. "Buying Waste Management
    (WMI:NYSE) at 50!" Miller chuckles as he considers the
    price. It closed at 16 Wednesday. But he still thinks
    the trash-hauler is a good pick. "It's about 30% to
    40% too low."

    but I am a short-term trader and 35-41 seems more
    like a pipedream than a reality. That is not to say it
    will never get to those levels again, just that at
    this point the likelihood is not probable. I'll look
    for $26 - $28 hopefully in the near future and will
    than be on my way again. Although the tax implications
    on short-term trading are far less favorable, I just
    can not see holding many stocks long term in this
    kind of market. It seems to me that the tremendous
    volatility that is characteristic of many of the stocks
    trading today, is best exploited with short-term trading.
    Once my nestegg is at a level where I feel
    comfortable, then I will look for a company to place money in
    for the long term. IMO SBUX is not that stock. Good
    luck and happy trading.

    was right again. Check out HAsbro today. Recent
    low was $19 and we just opened close to $23. At Home
    (ATHM) is also looking very good today. Good luck with
    SBUX, I may purchase some if it goes lower.

    I know that WMI is being recommended by the guy
    who runs the "blood in the streets" website. He is
    also recommending stocks like HAS, SBUX, T, TOY etc...
    He charges I believe about $3,000 for a yearly
    subscription. I haven't subscribed but I do follow some of his
    picks. One thing to note is that even though he may put
    a stock on his "picks list" this does not
    necessarily mean that the stock is a current buy. Those who
    subscribe receive the buy target price through e-mail. Thus
    far, it seems as though there is typically much more
    downside to the stocks that he recommends. I have also
    been watching WMI and have to believe that it is
    getting close to becoming a very strong buy. I haven't
    done any TA on it yet, but probably will this weekend.
    As for Hasbro, I feel that at this price it must be
    a steal. I am averaged in at $20.78 and may sell
    for as little as $21.37 - $22 if it hits tomorrow.
    The SSB downgrade just added an element of risk to
    Hasbro that I really want no part of. As well, there are
    just too many stocks right now that are attractively
    priced that may have more upside potential than Hasbro.
    One stock that I like very much is At Home (ATHM).
    However, it is very risky due to large price swings and
    the whole "open access" debate. Although, the whole
    "open access" issue may quickly become a non-issue if a
    deal is done with AOL. Any deal would surely send ATHM
    soaring upwards. In truth, I have only been short-term
    trading since March, and the bulk of the money I have
    made has been from getting lucky with ATHM. IMO stocks
    like HAS and SBUX are good for quick pops, but any
    further romance I feel should be avoided. Good luck and
    let me know if you have any stocks to suggest.

    I hope that damn crystal ball was right. I was
    buying Hasbro today. I am holding 800 shares at an
    average cost of $20.78. Today's drop was most probably
    due to the downgrade from a buy to outperform from
    SSB. I personally think HAsbro is being lumped in with
    Mattel. Time will tell. Hasbro's earnings are due out on
    Ocotber 14.
