    BDX upgraded from "buy" to "strong buy" today by Cowen & Co. That's good news and the stock was very strong today. Of course, God knows what tomorrow will bring.....

    • I've got BD shares and have a question which maybe someone here can answer. This may sound naive since I am new to the stock game, but isn't the dividend on BD stock not the greatest? What is involved in the decision to set the dividend? Is it usually simply determined based on a percentage of the company's revenue? Why would one company be more or less giving in this way to its shareholders than another company?
