    February 14th is Valentines day around the world


    Valentine’s Day was first introduced to Japan in 1936 and has become widely popular. However, because of a translation error made by a chocolate company, only women buy Valentine chocolates for their spouses, boyfriends, or friends. In fact, it is the only day of the year many single women will reveal their crush on a man by giving him chocolate. The men don’t return the favor until White Day, a type of “answer day” to Valentine’s Day, which is on March 14.

    February 14th is National Condom day in Australia and United States (there it runs for a week)

    Condom sales are 20-30% higher around Valentine’s Day

    The United Nations expects 18 billion condoms will be needed in 2015 for low- and middle- income countries alone.

    Why did I bring up the above points

    Well if you join the dots - I am hoping that Okamoto will decide to promote the Vivagel coated condom on this day. Based on their intended roll out of the condom for world aids day back in December - this would be a great marketing opportunity for them. The proviso is of course the Japanese regulatory body has given the go ahead

    On another note short sales of script in Starpharma was 245 yesterday!!!

    Those that follow the company intently may notice for the last couple of day the company at end of day has shot up in increments of one cent. This has been done in the last ten minutes of trading (between 4:00 - 4:10pm)
