Just bought another 500 shares at 63. I feel that BDX shares will continue to rise over the next 18 months. Fundamentals are strong as the company is in the process of doubling revenues through aquisitions, new product introductions, and penetration into new markets (i.e. China, India, etc.) Earnings growth will be in the double digits for the next five years and Return on Equity will continue to increase. The board is determined to become a classic growth stock and become a houshold name As tech stocks fall out favor, more money will pour into the med sector. Therefore, I see the stock trading up into the upper 80's by year end at which time there could be a 2-1 split.
