    BDX "will get creamed"? BDX has ALREADY BEEN

    Creamed so badly it would need to rise
    100% to get back to where it was! The old high was
    around $50 and the low around $25! Maybe 'inhaled
    insulin' is why the stock 'got' creamed.

    BDX is a
    diversified, world-wide, company at a fire sale price. I can't
    imagine any more downside. I am a stockholder since 1991
    and am not worried at all. Just put this one away and
    forget about it.

    • white, you are right. i should have said BDX will get creamed AGAIN. i jumped in after the huge drop in june. 100 yr old leader in a great business. don't worry, i'm gonna hang on.

    • I certainly appreciate and believe your positive
      positon right now. As a long-time holder of ABT, and an
      less knowledgable investor of BDX, your comments are
      appreciated. I keep buying BDX (DRIP plus) and am holding in
      with you. Medical stocks across the board a are down
      right now, due in part to the argument over medical
      coverage etc. I have advised many people to hang with ABT
      in bad times....will take your word on this one!
      Bought more last week. Dave
