ONCI Sets Sights On Helping The Elderly With Dental Care And It Could Be Huge
This alert could easily top Wednesday's gains of 28%.
This alert is special because it's different. You’d seldom associate bad teeth with a disruptive opportunity but that is precisely what my newest trade idea is about to do.
The company is moving into the elderly healthcare market with a focus on helping residents inside of care homes enjoy healthier dental hygiene.
The current state of things is woeful, but where there's a problem there is an opportunity to provide a solution—and make a lot of money along the way.
On4 Communications, Inc. (OTCPINK: ONCI)
By its own admission ONCI is emerging from an extended quiet period. But what a way to emerge!
You’d think that ONCI would be looking to take things slowly; assess the lay of the land before diving back in the game. Management has gone all in and the target is the market for dental care inside homes for the elderly.
I’ll tell you a secret: old people are having a tough time inside these homes – almost 16,000 homes with more than 1.7M licensed beds. Things are so bad the New York Times had to do a full report on the matter.
That’s the backdrop for ONCI right now. It’s a backdrop that means potentially huge returns for traders in the near term.
Interest in ONCI is headed towards volcanic levels. Since emerging from its deep sleep volatility levels have exploded to the point where average volume is now 39M shares.
This strong investor interest is driving valuation, too. Although ONCI is essentially a sub penny play at current levels, movements are frequently in the double digits. There was a 20% spike in the last session alone.
Right now ONCI is positioned for a strong bounce; RSI is 38 and momentum is getting stronger by the day.
Take an urgent look at this.

Why ONCI Is Poised To Benefit From Failings In Elderly Dental Care
From the New York Times expose on shoddy dental treatment for elderly people in nursing homes:
“I always say you can measure quality in a nursing home by looking in people’s mouths, because it’s one of the last things to be taken care of,” said Dr. Judith A. Jones, chairwoman of the department of general dentistry at Boston University. “Aides change someone’s Depends, change a catheter or turn somebody every few hours, but teeth often don’t get brushed twice a day.”
The neglect can lead to terrible pain for the residents. Worse, new studies suggest that this problem may be contributing to another: pneumonia, a leading killer of institutionalized older people.
The lack of daily oral care in nursing facilities is “an epidemic that’s almost universally overlooked,” said Dr. Sarah J. Dirks, a dentist who treats nursing home residents in San Antonio.
There are no current national assessments of oral health in nursing homes, but since 2011, at least seven states have evaluated residents using a survey developed by the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors. One was Kansas, where dental hygienists examined 540 older residents in 20 long-term-care facilities. Nearly 30 percent of the residents had “substantial oral debris on at least two-thirds of their teeth,” according to a report issued by the Kansas Bureau of Oral Health. More than one-third had untreated decay.
The screeners saw plenty of fillings and crowns but concluded that “regular dental care has become a thing of the past” for many of the residents.
In Wisconsin, nearly 1,100 residents from 24 homes were examined. About 31 percent had teeth broken to the gums, with visible roots; 35 percent had substantial oral debris.
The problem has been graphically documented in state and federal inspections of nursing homes. In Texas, inspectors noted one resident with memory problems in too much pain to eat, her lower gums red, swollen and packed with food debris.
On4 Communications Provides Shareholder Update; Initiates Reduction of Authorized Shares
ONCI confirmed in a release last month that the company will be filing the necessary paperwork with the State of Delaware to reduce ONCI's authorized shares to 3.75 billion shares, which is a reduction from the current 5 billion shares currently authorized.
The company had previously stated in a letter to shareholders that it would be reviewing the authorized shares in order to determine a balance between immediate shareholder interests while allowing room for strategic acquisitions. Just over 1.5 billion shares are restricted of the issued and outstanding.
In the past 30 days, Mr. Steve Berman, CEO of On4 Communications, had business related travel outside of the country to both Russia and Japan. Now with his feet firmly back in the United States, Mr. Berman is placing the company's focus on carrying through on the steps necessary to continue building the company.
The company is also pleased to announce the appointment of Jeffrey Mahl as Senior VP of Business Development for On4 Communications, Inc. Mr. Mahl has a very strong history in business development and sales.
