It was so interesting to see that after it was ranked absolutely last on the 6 month review (besides US Mobility, which they sold!)

From 6-month Review

Company: CNS
Prospects: C-
Price: B-

CNS (Nasdaq: CNXS)
Although CNS has other product lines, the company lives and dies with the results in its Breathe Rite strips. Management has proved incapable of branching out with much success, and each attempt to develop (or buy) new products takes capital. Its FiberChoice line seems to be gaining traction. But at an estimated $21 million in fiscal 2006 revenues, it's not the winner CNS needs. But CNS bought back $14 million of shares, to go along with a 1.2% dividend, so I shouldn't overargue that cash is being squandered. This is a fine company with a management that needs to figure out the best use of shareholder capital. Buy below $21.
