[Hansen] sells disruptive technology. ... After a long period of marketing, hospitals are starting to enter in to deals with the company to use their products -- most notably a robotic catheter placement system. The chart is showing a nice "cup with a handle pattern" with support around $3.50. I own shares in the company; it is my favorite speculative investment.
