Hopefully my action was not a short term reaction but I recently sold my CNXS shares based on the following info:

1) Lack of a new product and forward revenue guidance. Clear strips is a re-introduction of an old product (I suspect that it willnot bring new sales)
2) Rereading the HG newsletter and noting that the key item commented on was this was a possible takeover target and to expect slow growth.
3) How impacted their earnings were because of a mild flu and cold season (not diversified product line)
4) Marketing: Or lack of. Includes their ads for the vapor shots and product placement on shelves in local stores (bottom shelf).

This just did not add up to the best use of my investing.
