Buy Stats:

On March 8, 1996, the seventh Boring trade was made, as 400 shares of Prime Medical Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: PMSI) were purchased for the Borefolio. PMSI's business is lithotripsy, a relatively recent treatment for kidney stones. Lithotripsy is an effective, noninvasive procedure in which carefully focused shock waves are used to break up large kidney stones into fragments small enough to be eliminated in the patient's normal urine flow. Approximately 200,000 lithotripsy treatments are performed annually in the US. The order was filled at $10 by K. Aufhauser & Co.
