Making substantial progress. The procedure they do takes less time and it had 100% success rate. Starting to see surgeons adopt this. The company will ultimately be sold.

Not a bad company, but priced pretty well. Prefers faster growth models. A nice stable cash flow business. Cheap.

Earnings didn't kick in as fast as he expected. Some contract announcements weren't as good as expected. It's fortunes will be tied to Nortel.

Have to be cautious as they just diluted their shareholders by issuing 35 million shares. Talk about how much $ they'll make from harvesting trees but spent 70 million on new trees and only got 50 million in in revenues. Suspicious.

Their refinery starts up in about three weeks. They will have revenues pretty soon. Haven't hit anything yet on their oil drilling program.

Well-run and well-financed. Great management team. Seems to be a perpetual $.95 to $1 price range. Can't see it breaking out soon.
