    problem area

    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

    • Solid company in a rough patch. Currently an
      oppurtunity to buy LOW. Grossly oversold; down 38% YTD; can't
      bleed much more, and is practically correction-proof.
      P/E of 17-18 is a huge discount to it's peergroup and
      the S&P 500. Management must prove to the sheep that
      it can put a couple of good quarters together. I'm
      in and long and do not mind the current price. Wish
      I had more to put in!
