    Small guy sells off pre-earnings...

    Interesting you mention Prudential being involved
    with put buying.

    On November 17th, a day after
    the analyst meeting, Prudential cut BDX to hold. A.G.
    Edwards upgraded to buy, and SG Cowen reiterated strong
    buy.

    Also, on December 17th Morgan Stanley
    reiterated Strong Buy.

    I have a sneaky hunch that
    Prudential wants this stock down just in time to an upgrade
    tomorrow morning.

    I figure this quarter cannot be a
    blowup because of bullish analyst meeting in
    mid-November and recent Strong Buy reiteration by MSDW in
    mid-Decemeber.

    This stock is down $4.5 in two days (over
    a 10% correction) and the news would have to be
    devastating to stock it significantly lower.
