BD Hypodermic Notice
Then look to the right and you will see Important Legal Notice: Advertising Injunction regarding Hypodermic Needles
IMHO, BDX, who prides themselves on ethical behavior, can't be trusted.
This is suppose to be an ethical company ? Check out BDX's website under hypodermic needles and hit United States. It's amazing that BDX has been able to get away with this for all these years.
Thanks for making a profit and helping to pay my taxes. I have owned BDX since before 2002 and, with all dividends reinvested, I am up 268% and my original cost was under 30$ a share. I don't need any assistance thanks. I'll be here for a a couple of more decades. Buying and holding and reinvesting my dividends has been a compounding miracle for me.
I feel great because I sold then when the downtrend turned positive I bought back in. Is there anything else I can assist you with?
The payout ratio is smallish and the yield is too low so I am hoping they double the dividend to reward long term buy and hold investors. I am wishing ore than I am complaining but there are lots of companies out there that will pay you a 4% dividend and give you growth. If you are reinvesting your dividend as I do you like the compounding effect of a strong dividend.
I buy and hold for DECADES…sometimes you win and sometimes you loose…I will never catch up on the mistakes I have made with BAC, the "ultimate window and orphans" stock. HAH!! BDX will be in my estate when I die,
I had owned this stock many years ago in the 60's. Yahoo does me the honor of putting this chart in an advertisement on my screen, so I click on it just to see what's been going on. Well phooey....another one I should have held onto for the long haul just like SKX in the 3's.
Nevertheless, I hope many if not all of you have done well in this company!
"Vincent A. Forlenza - Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President
So we're not a believer in scale for scale's sake. Our strategy is really focused on creating complete solutions for the customer and driving value that way. We think that, that aligns much more with the basic customer needs and how buying processes are evolving. So we really think strategically around each one of these business units and how they can build out solutions. And if you look at how we might work across business units to create more complete solutions, it's a second element of our strategy that we are developing. All of that lines up with -- more with our plug-in M&A strategy. And so that's really the core of what we're trying to do. And certainly, there are people who are playing this out differently in terms of just more and more breadth, but that's not what we're attempting."
