Well, People why are you being so rude about this?? I mean I repeat BDX will be ABT and heads will roll and there is nothing you can or I can do to prevent this unless you know some people the board of BDX personally and I think that might even be too late as I think that the deal is already sealed and done and of course its only obvious that heads will be rolling at BDX. I mean anyone would know that, why do you think ABT is buying BDX ?? To make it more efficient and profitable so, they will have to roll heads now, wont they?? Anyway , we will see who is right and who is wrong, and you guys will feel bad that you have been insulting me the way you did. I repeat Heads will roll soon and BDX will be ABT.
You know nothing more than anyone else, yet you pretend to know. That my friend, is plainly and simply, a pure definition of 'hype'. People get mad because hype is not only a waste of time, but can mislead an investor. Someone may take action on your numerous 'done deal' postings. That, simply stated, is not a nice thing to do to other investors.
Sometime in the future I believe people may be held liable for providing misleading information. It is a very simple process for a government agency to locate the name and address of a poster by means of his ISP.
It is my guess that this is not serious investing for you, but some kind of emotional game. Yes, there is the possiblility that BDX (or BSX, or someone else!) will be acquired. My guess is that you want to say 'I TOLD YOU SO' if it is BDX.
I for one, have no intention of joining your game. If a takeover does occurr, you get no apologies here.
Good luck on your investments, and think about quitting the hype game.
There is no need for the 2-year old mentalitity I am seeing here. I don't know anything, but I do study the options activity. To those that think there is NO DEAL, please give me some plausable explanation for the activity and high volatility that has been the case with BDX Options. This stock has probably traded more contracts in the last month than it did all of last year. WHY??? I certainly don't know, but I sure would like to! Since I don't know anything, I can't criticize those who think there will be a deal, and I can't criticize those who think there will not be a deal. I'm just looking for something concrete! JM
