    C'mon sellers - unload more at $57.3

    I'm looking at 56.00/share as the support level. The last time it sank to that level was April 20th, which was a broad market bottom. There was a big rally during May, then a lot of stocks began to give back the gains. BDX is a stock that acts like that. It's pattern is to roll up and down over a range between 56.00 and 60.00. You could go back to Feb. 05 and see the same pattern. If it dips below 56.00 for more than a week all bets are off as far as this pattern goes. Remember that BDX has come up from a low of 25.00 per share in July 02 and has remained in this 56 - 60 range since Jan 05. That is a six month solid horizontal trend. Trends like that are meant to be broken at some point in time. But in which direction? I am betting it is to the upside. Even in the face of a strengthening dollar, which is not good for global companies that convert revenue into dollars, I prefer to believe that the stock will not disappoint. Except for short and rare instances in its long history, BDX has rewarded shareholders very well. Look at a three year chart (or longer) to get the big picture. These are my opinions only and I do not advise anyone to buy or sell this or any other stocks. I own BDX shares.
