    trouble in paradise

    in 2 years totaling more than $300M. At what
    point do "one time" events become the norm. I think
    we're there. It looks to me that B-D deserves an
    ongoing P/E of maybe 20....if you can figure out what
    their ongoing earnings will be. And until recently I
    think one broker (Cowen?) still thought B-D was going
    to introduce a glucose monitor at the diabetes
    educators meeting. So much for upping the top line. But the
    drop in stock price increases the chance of a take
    out, esp. with the CEO leaving. Good luck'll need it.
