    I have to agree that it isn't right for anyone to spread rumors.
    Why spread rumors? I now have problems with BioRaiders credibility!

    • I had no idea I would upset so many of you by
      sharing what I know to be a real possibility! Nobody
      complained when I posted comments long before they came to
      fruition in the past! If you want to believe that BDX
      isn't going through a tough period right be
      it, your'e very naive!

      By the way, just for
      the record, I'm a holder of over 3,000 shares and
      have been long for more than 10 years on BDX.. I think
      that this company will rebound in the second half of
      the year, but I'm very confident that I will be able
      to buy more below $30 very soon.

      One final some of you! I can say anything I want, anytime I
      want on this board...the same as you can! If any of
      you don't like it, skip my posts! To the others who
      back me...thanks!

      • I here the lastest news that Abbott is making a pitch for BD.

        Surprise! Surprise!

      • We all know what companies "have been" and "will"
        continue to do to keep stockholders HAPPY.

        We also
        know what's most important here is to make sure upper
        management gets their lucrative BONUS each year with stock

        Layoffs are "THE AMERICAN WAY", but
        layoffs are NOT the issue!
        And certainly Freedom of
        Speech is NOT the issue here either.

        What I'm
        saying is a comment like, and I quote you "Look for
        layoff announcmant (200+ jobs) before the end of this
        quarter" is a negilgent comment and does nothing more than
        start a RUMOR. It dosn't matter if your right or wrong!

        It dosn't do anyone any good especially those who
        work hard for BDX and have seen friends, with families
        to support, layed-off in recent years. I ask you sir
        .. "Why start a RUMOR like that and worry the small
        employee who works hard day to day to make ends meet and
        who dosn't have 3000+ shares of

        Obviously your only concern is how much money YOU can make
        your 3000+ shares ...... your message makes me sick.
