The main reason that I liked CNXS is because for one it has a funny or ridiculous product and has over 90% of the share of these (boring) nasal strips. Think about people going round putting these funny strips on their nose. But guess what, I have used them and I like them as it relieves nasal congestion immediately. Like Peter Lynch points out in One Up on Wall Street, invest in a company that institutions are not following and the multiple baggers will follow. CNXS is cash flow positive and is coming out with new products with the CEO following up on her promises ( read the last 3 annual reports )

If you folks also remember in One Up on Wall Street, the more ridiculous the product the better it is. Less competition in the future and I think that is why CNXS commands over 90% of the share and is cash flow positive.

Looking at the other side of the equation, I read on the web site that the patent on these nasal strips were granted in early 1991. Since the cost is so low and CNXS has effectively warded of competition in the future, how does the patent expiration affect CNXS's revenue? How big is there a threat of this?
