The reason for my quietness is not because I am
wrong or anything. I repeat, the deal is sealed and
done, but these things take little longer to announce,
and you will see that I am right, soon very soon.
with BDX through the downs and mostly ups do in
fact make out in a profitable way. We just sit back
over the years and enjoy the splits and upward
movement of the stock. Sure maybe we could make some more
money by selling on the dips and then rebuying on the
lows but really who knows for certain where they are.
Not me for sure...so I'll just sit back and watch the
chatter on this post board and know in the long term I am
doing just fine. Best of health to young investor and
to the rest of you good investing to you and your
As I've said all along, these people love to hear
themselves talk, and they lack credibility in most of what
they say. Those of us that have been with BD for years
know the cycles, and we just hang in there and wait.
It has always been worth the wait.
I think I
will nominate myself for the Board.
Having followed (and owned) BDX for several
years, it's been my experience that positive earnings
announcements are followed by sometimes irrational (i.e.
opposite) directions in price movements. As always, the
decision is between short term trading and long term
holding. I view the $.06 "dilution" in earnings (from $.40
to $.34) as positive long term because it was
allocated to research. Regardless of a few cents one way or
the other, company fundamentals and position within
the industry remain strong.
this recent news release sounds like bd is trying
to explain why they are off on earnings and could
cause the street to feel good about the results or
maybe not, but maybe the stockexpert has some good
insight!!! bd long will be good under either condition!!!
how about it!!!
