If you remember this company was broken up and then put back together. As someone said, it is a good company but not a buy and hold'em stock. Except for one yr, 2004, the range for the stock is usually over 15 points. I have been buying and selling TMO for yrs and am happy with the results. (as a matter of fact, just got back in at this level and am prepared to buy a little lower.)
the financial statements are a mess! They must have 211,432 people working on them! Revenues are in comprehnesible, the balance sheeet reflects the right numbers shrinking, the wrong numbers growing and cash flow is doing so but the wrong way! I was interested in speculating here but I think I'll pass. Good luck to you longs...may the Force be with you. This was once a good company. What happened?
