Invisalign, Align Technology's principle product, is a household name. The public knows about it and demands it over traditional braces. The brand is world-wide too and penetrating massively in Japan and China. Invisalign is a high margin procedure/treatment for general dentists, and it is easy to learn and implement with virtually no increased overhead. Also, orthodontists are becoming turned on to it as well which is further validation for the product in the general dentist's and public's eye. Furthermore, the moat is huge, there are virtually no other competitors for this product, and almost all people need some form of orthodontia. As this product has become synonymous with braces and the global middle class grows, there is only more and more growth on the horizon for this company.

Align Technology Inc. (NASDAQ: ALGN) has the Invisalign lock for dental braces. What is amazing here about this $2 billion market cap is that the stock is around $26.25 against a 52-week range of $22.39 to $39.82. The consensus analyst target is about $34.10 here, implying a consensus upside expectation of about 20%. There is no dividend here.

Seems like a good product and they sell worldwide.
After backing out net cash, they should have a PE of 12. Their short ratio is 21%, so it is good for a bounce, and then probably longer.

The stock is trading near its lowest prices ever, and this is one that's certain to rebound once the market improves. Could it go down further? Sure, but when consumers start spending money again, parents will spare no expense on their kids' health care, cosmetics included - and this will send the stock price back up.

The only two aspects of this stock that I'm not crazy about are it's Earnings Per Share (.34), and it's beta being a bit high. Otherwise, all their other stats seem very healthy. I especially like the fact that they're beefing up their spending on sales and marketing - a very smart move during a down economy that'll help position them for major gains during an economic turnaround.

Also, they've got a patented monopoly on their product. A few former employees of Align Technology tried to form their own company using what equated to the same product (the "Invisible Braces") at a cheaper cost to the consumer. Align Technologies sued them & won, and the spinoff company eventually dissolved. With that kind of power & control over their product, I'm optimistic that the Earnings Per Share will eventually improve.

Great product just needs to gain some steam. I have personally used Invisalign and it is outstanding compared to braces. Unless someone fixes our teeth genetically before birth, then there will always be a need for their product

Had been hit with warranted negatvie news but as it so often happens the street threw out the baby with the bathwater. It is a good product and is not bound by a bull or Bear market but by Vanity; Parents and children alike.
It has a devoted following of its product, myself included.
The street will redicover it and it will be moving UP.

There is no reason for this to be going up. First of all it is an elective procedure that is only FDA approved for people over 18, adults, not your typical population for braces, so insurace don't cover it at all. It is more expensive than traditional braces. It takes longer than traditional braces to correct problems. The users must wear these plastic mouthpieces all day every day unless you are eating (this limits treatment success because it is hard for anyone to wear these 24/7, no mater what the company tells you. Lastly, it is usually required to shave in-between teeth to achieve the desired result.

Now the Fundies: The company trades at an astounding P/E ratio. It has warned about future earnings. The CFO resigned. Cramer gave it a big "thumbs up."

This pig is being bought by the poor sappy dentists who pay a few grand for ALGN's course and think that they will be able to talk their patients into doing the treatment. Once they see that the treatment is not as successful as the company says it is, they stop doing the cases. Or better yet, wait until a few lawsuits hit the newspapers. They will be coming as it usually takes two years to complete treatment and it is just about due for a few lawsuits.
