I was surprised yesterday - KCI opened way down and I purchased it at 35, well below my lowball (I thought) limit order.

Apparently the bad news was an adverse court ruling on patents.

I see from this board that this is not a new experience for KCI - so is this a normal experience for this type of business? Or are they habitual patent infringers?

And more importantly, what are the long term overall implications for KCI?

I see it is still listed as a buy and the preferred buy price (dated 2008) is $41. Perhaps a later PRO letter changed that price recommendation? If so I guess I need help finding it.

It looks as if the market is trying to inch it back up - I'm showing a profit on it right now, so maybe I should just relax and enjoy.

Chuck
