    trouble in paradise

    ...No stock price appreciation. THAT'S the bottom
    line. Do I think B-D has great core products....YES.
    But they are either very mature or have 80-90% share.
    This baby won't move until someone lays out a top line
    growth plan, PERIOD. Otherwise pray for a take out. And
    the current headcount, expense, new project
    REDUCTIONS may boast the bottom line in the short term, but
    make the problem worse for top line growth later. This
    is a 100 year old company acting it's age.
