The shares of Non Invasive Medical Systems, which manufacture the LifeShirt,
are now climbing like a rocket, with 30% Friday and 50% today (when I looked
in the middle of the trading day).

A link to their web page can be found on

Although the two day rise from 19 cents has been spectacular, at 40 cents
the shares
are still grossly undervalued in terms of the expectations for LifeShirt and
in a year or so will probably be nearer $50 or even more. Another factor
which needs to be considered is the fact that modern
electronics manufacture can get a product from the drawing board to reality
in a very short time compared to conventional manufacturing of the past. The
Internet enables complex global trading infrastructures to be set up in a
matter of days as opposed to decades. In terms of
conventional accounting or financial advice, the shares  will remain a total

A stock which I found by accident is Alexion - this has been climbing
steadily over the past month. Check out its homepage for news of its
research programs into previously intractable diseases such as Multiple
Sclerosis and products to prevent or reverse brain damage. Even if you are

interesting reading for their scientific content.

A brokers report for Prudential Bache's UK stockmarket clients has suggested
that the number of private individuals investing on the stock market has
increased dramatically since Internet trading started. They attribute the

not being subjected to the recommendations of stockbrokers or life insurance
or other managed fund managers.

They see little chance of an end of the process, and say that "short sellers
should ignore the Wall of Money at their peril".

I would suggest that this could be a problem to people using conventional
investment vehicles such as life insurance as the underlying stocks will
fall in value as more and more money is sucked into the new, global,
