EQUITIES Special Situations Beats the Wilshire Index four years in a row!

With one of the best and most consistent performances among top stock advisory newsletters for 2002, 2003, 2004 and 2005, according to The Hulbert Financial Digest, EQUITIES has beaten the Wilshire 5000 index four straight years, gaining 14.78% versus 6.2% for the Index in 2005! Naturally, past performance is no guarantee of future success.

Why Biophan?

Biophan's progress in pioneering and patenting devices to make MRI safer is impressive. Currently, pacemakers, defibrillators, and other implanted devices are dangerous when imaged under MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). In fact, getting MRI with an implant can kill you. So can skipping MRI. But fear not, Biophan has found a cure for this dilemma by pioneering advanced medical technologies that are MRI safe -- solving problems that prevent over 34 million people from getting MRIs when needed.

Biophan allows the following devices to be MRI safe and compatible for the first time: Stents, Vena Cava Filters, Pacemakers, other Pacing Devices, Guidewires, Catheters, Motors for Implantable Drug Pumps and Devices and Left Ventricular Assist Devices (LVADs).
