Unless they add new products I don't see a demand for this product. Regular condoms, pills and injections is the norm, much more convienent. This product doesn't address current conusmers needs. Just another novelty. Growth is looking slim.

You will notice that FHCO has followed a very different trajectory than you expected. I think the error here is that FHCO isn't really dependent on the market in general, and to understand this company/stock you can't be myopic and look at it through the lens of what the U.S. or other developed countries need. I'm not sure who the "current consumer" is that you refer. FHCO is targeted toward women/families in the developing world, where "pills and injections" are not, as you suggest, the norm.
