I'm surprised I'm the first person to mention this one. UFEM has a new product to be launched in August called INSTEAD. INSTEAD was developed by a womanDoctor and has major support and backing from the medical community. INSTEAD is somewhat like a diaphram in appearance but is made of medically oriented material that softens with heat to conform to a womens body. They received FDA approval and are doing a MAJOR launch in Aug/Sep with
many Women's magazines such as Cosmo, a massive mail campaign to 3,000,000 women who use a diaphram, and a talk show circut with Oprah and Sally J Raphael. Management is very deep and experienced, and their Advertizing (Bozeman) is one of the best. The stock went public a couple of months ago at $10 to the lucky few, now climbing steadily to about $20. Major institutional buying. In addition, they have a product called BUFFERGEL to be used in tandem with INSTEAD which has been partially funded by the US GOVERNMENT which is a form of STD (AIDS, ETC) prevention and contrapception.
Sorry this is so long, but it really is a great story. What's great about INSTEAD is that women can have sex while being on their periods, women are dissatisfied with tampons and pads because of dryness and leakage and Toxic Shock Syndrome. THe story couldn't be better, one of the guys from Bozeman told me it was the best product launch he's seen in 35 years. I think it's going to rise steadily for the next few months and when this launch gets to be known this stock will ROAR upward. Company is located in NEW YORK 212-641-3500.
