Anyone remember when nutrasweet came on the market. I do! I found a company called Genex that had developed the enzymes for nutrasweet. It was a small company that now had an agreement to manufacture them in bulk. To make the story short, it was a one product company and a week or two before production was to begin their only customer announced that they had built production facilities and were going to produce the stuff themselves. The stock went from $12 to around $2 overnight. I havn't invested in a company with all it's eggs in one basket again. Lesson learned!
