    • I didn't know it was time to have a fre-for-all. I am listening but am still not sure who's on first, though certain it is not me.

    • I agree with your comment, but unfortunately in
      AMerica it is the guns that kill people. If someone
      accidently sticks himself with a syringe, it isnt his fault,
      it is the company's fault that made the syringe, the
      hospital the employee was working at, and the patient that
      was getting the injection. Nobody takes
      responsibility anymore for their actions, and that just sucks. A
      judge should step up and do the right thing: throw
      those lawsuits out of court.

    • Your ignorant analysis does not deserve to be
      dignified by a rebuttal, so here is mine:
      ......................................................................................... .............................!!

    • candidness. You are a breath of fresh air on this
      board. I don't know what CLARA's problem is and if there
      are any of BDX management employees that monitor this
      board then I would suggest that they evaluate what
      CLARA has stated as fact and then see how libelous her
      statements are and if untrue take her to court and make her
      prove just how bad BDX really is in it's control of the
      market place. I also read the annual statement and
      didn't see anything in the area of litigion to be really
      concerned about. Again I say to you thanks for your sense
      of responsibility and willingness to share it with
      us who are BDX stockholders and proud of that fact.
      Good investing to you and your family.

    • Do you think this is the time to buy in the $33 range. I've been waiting awhile for a pullback. All comments welcome. Do you think there is more downside?

    • The question being responded to is "Do guns kill,
      or is it the person who pulls the trigger ?" The
      answer is obviously both. However, the the ultimate
      purpose of a gun is to kill whereas the ultimate purpose
      of a syringe is to eradicate disease. If BDX's
      objective is to ethnically cleanse the continent of Africa
      and kill women and minorities who work in healthcare
      in the United States then I would agree that they
      have a hell of a product line. Fortunately, since the
      customers are American citizens with a higher ethical
      standard I believe that the class action suits in process
      will ultimately destroy BDX before they destroy the
      practice of medicine. If you think their company will not
      end up like DOW chemical with their breast implant
      division and you don't care about whether horrific
      diseases are spread in the community this maybe an
      excellent buying opportunity for BDX stock. Personally, I
      believe their market cap is somewhat high for a company
      being sued for millions of preventable injuries when
      superior technology is available.

    • Do guns kill,or is it the person who pulls the trigger?

    • This array of state-of-the-art medical devices is
      unrivaled by any other company in the world!

      is no company that has committed more money, human
      resources, or technological know-how to reduce sharps
      than BDX.

    • The impression I get from this person is that
      she's probably one of the plaintiffs in this lawsuit
      against BDX and it's in her best interest to undermine
      and badmouth the company. Clara, honey, why don't you
      just take your ax and grind it elsewhere....

    • I stop lossed yesterday at 37. Got right back in at 32 this a.m.
      after the halt. This company is far too solid to let go at these
