minor IDT, Fitbit, CenturyLink and UDC news ?2
The most interesting news kicking off the week is that Senseonics
got FDA approval
for its implantable glucose monitoring solution for diabetics.
Sensors seem finally set to become big

lifespan of this device leads me to doubt that it will give IDT
any meaningful boost.
It's a start, though, and much more meaningful than Fitbit's
I continue to doubt the long-term usefulness of the existing data
hoard there, though the newer devices are better and able to be

doesn't see some sort of rebound before competition, and possibly
The news should be having more impact, in terms of stock price,

catches up with America, and UDC may very well wind up being a
poster child for that shift. In the long run, it's all about
which countries provide better infrastructure,
services and environments to nurture growth
in their respective societies in the balance
between business and individual interests. Consequently, my
favorite picks are still high-yielding stocks like CTL which have
presence and can use their assets to provide those services,
thereby generating cash flow.
