    This BD employee is very happy with company performance !

    History says it all ... BDX is a performer ... face it folks ... the economy is bad ... Obama is "off the wall" ... Baby Boomers are "aging out" ... Diabetes is on the rise ... Hospitals are filled with patients ... BD has their "act together" ... Even in this crazy economy

    • You should be happy. Great company.

      Obama is well intentioned but fiscally irresponsible. Whole lot of folks who voted for him are sure crawling for the sidelines now. Only time will tell but I smell another Carterish chapter to the history books coming.

      Buy BDX below $63. It's on it's way back down through no fault of it's own. I would love to own BDX for the long haul but I can't simply sit on the shares knowing it oscillates rather predictably between $70 and $60. I just don't see a change to this rotation in the near term.

    • you are only happy because u have a job!

    • Well, I think Obama's fantastic--not sure what "off the wall" means.

      And hospitals aren't filled with patients. My girlfriend's a nurse--her hospital just went through a round of layoffs, and she was marvelling at how eerily empty the ER waiting room was the other day.

      But BD is a fantastic company, which is weathering the storm (a storm that Obama REALLY wasn't responsible for). I was a bit discouraged by the back-to-back S&P downgrades, because I do think that they're a pretty trustworthy source, and that's probably the reason I haven't added to my BDX position since January. But I've held what I do own, and I'm glad that I did. Seeing profits on that position now.
