As has been pointed out by hudaman, with an improvement in the economy, pent up demand will eventually turn into purchases of this elective, but highly popular, corrective surgery.

I was at the Portland (actually Tigard) office last year, and met a young man who had had the surgery a year earlier, and now was driving for his friend who was "under the knife" as we spoke. A year into it, he was practically ecstatic about the results, AND about LCAV.

But contrary to hudaman, given the current unemployment situation, I don't think that we will see a huge upsurge for some time. Perhaps it is oversold and we will see a strong pick up in the short term ( and $12 would be 4 x $3 if you got in then), but I think the move back to the 30s is gong to be a year or two off.

But as soon as this company goes back to a profit - watch out! So I think it is a good idea to keep an eye on it!
