    Abbott Acquisition

    I do not follow the strategic reasoning on why
    Abbott would want to acquire BDX. I realize that Abbott
    manufactures many medical devices which compliment or overlap
    BD's businesses. However, Abbott has focused most of
    their energies on blood products and pharmaceuticals
    for the past several years. In fact there have been
    rumors that Abbott was looking divest some of their
    devices' businesses. Has there been a major shift by
    Abbott in their business focus?
