Stocks A / Align Technology, Inc.

The stock is down about 8% in last 2 days after they sent a letter to dentists stating that unless they complete 10 cases/year every year ther will lose their certification. I'm a dentist and to be honest with you this reeks of a money grab of a company who's financials don't look solid. They do have a competitor called ClearConnect and the overwhelming majority of dentists do not do more than 10 cases/year that I know. This stock is going to plummet. Get out now! They call it their "clinical proficiency program" but its nothing more than a ruse to try and push treatment onto patients. The modality is not very good for alot of situations where patients would need full braces but Align is trying to force dentists into pushing this treatment. Bad choice.
