Glad that little dip is over. Now BDX can move forward. Low 70's are prime opportunities to purchase a leader in medical supply business. The next time we will see 60's should be after the split .
Good luck and happy investing!
This stock anticipates (CEO Castellini) a
doubling or trebling of revenue in 4 years.
look at the growth of revenue from their sales levels
world-wide 10 years ago at 1.3Billion
Acquisition is their only route,and the good stuff is outside
of the management. Russia and China
only unopened Markets
for B-D so no chance of
doubling revenue in 4 years there.
Delphi is right
to question and not deeply enough in my view.
At least your post was civil, except for the
"bellyaching" part, but I'll ignore that.
As I have said
before, I have always admired BDX and continue to be long
on the stock, but I think that most of you guys (or
perhaps I should say "all" of you) seem to resent when
someone expresses a small measure of dissatisfaction with
the stock's performance, and every time I dare
suggest something is wrong or that things could be better
you guys jump all over me. I think that's an
unrealistic attitude. There have been times in the past when
analysts downgraded BDX (like last year when the stock
appreciated a paltry 10%). Did they also earn your animosity
because they dared be critical? BDX's performance has not
always been superlative.
Let me say this: I have
nothing against shareholders who are bullish on BDX. I
happen to like the company (always have) and merely want
them to do better, but I have a right to express my
opinion, and that does not entitle any of you to gang up
on me and/or suggest that if I am "so unhappy" I
should sell my shares and invest in something else.
I'm sorry if I have offended some of you with my
so-called "whining" or "bellyaching" posts (very strong and
beligerent language, in my opinion), but I have no plans to
go away, nor do I plan to make myself insufferable
either by posting negative reflections on a daily basis.
I said what I had to say (never expecting this
barrage of criticism from the rest of you) and that was
At least I am a serious investor and you
won't see me promoting penny stocks or posting SPAM and
crap like so many others do in other boards, so give
me a little slack for God's sake...! I'm not the
All I can say is that I wish every stock I buy
can bring me a 40% return over a four month period
such as BDX has done. Granted, the stock has run into
resistance at $70, but that's to be expected after such a
quick run up. I think you should be buying on dips and
looking forward to the next run. My opinion, stop
worrying about what other stocks are doing! Your money is
in BDX! If your not happy with it, sell it and move
on to "greener pastures"! Afterall, you've been
bellyaching about the recent stall for the last 2-3 weeks!
No disrepect intended..but for gods sake..be
patient!! The stock can't go up everyday!
Thanks for your comments, Arcco. Freedom of
speech applies to us all, and I believe this right
carries with it a responsibility for fairness. And, the
right to respect is presumptive but not irrevocable. I
cetainly stand by my remarks.
everyone has a right to their own opinion, we
need to respect everyone , whether they agree with our
point of view or not. It is true bdx has been all over
the boards recently but as a player with them for 14
years i am appreciative of the returns that the stock
has brought to me. I will be patient with the stock
as in the past, and be glad i did not dump it.
It was not my intention to get personal, but I
had to defend myself from what I regarded as an
insulting post. I agree that all of us have a right to
express our opinion, be that what it may, and plan to
continue doing so without offending anyone, provided that
others disagree with me in a respectful manner.
plenty of room here on this board for differences
of opinion. I've seen your posts before and they
have been good and not personal even if you don't see
eye to eye. Lets be carefull we don't allow this
board to go down the tubes with small type stuff you
know like personal attacks. Look at the MCI board and
you will see what I mean. Good investing to you and
No, I'm not finished yet. I just want to say that
I'm probably more rational than people like you who
keep posting inane messages like "we're on a roll" and
"we're gonna win" or "we're right on target.." when in
fact the company's performance and stock movement
could be a lot better.
I'm not ready to throw in
the towel on BDX yet (not that it's any of your
business) and I will continue to express bearish sentiments
on this board whenever I want to. If you object to
my posts, don't read them. Open the "feel good"
posts only and bury your ostrich head in the sand where
