that the market is "discovering" BDX's charms.
It's either a buyout or a spin off or something of
that nature. The cap of BDX is small and a buyout
would be very easy for any sizeable healthcare company.
As peaseatea said in message 2536, today's the
day for you to put up or shut up,i.e.,for an
announcement that JNJ's buying BD. So if(or I should say
when)nothing happens today,please let's not have any more
completely baseless predictions in the future.
I own a small long position as of yesterday on
pure absolute speculation that the market will
overreact in its usual irrational manner should there be a
single shred of truth to Crudele's article. I'm still
doing DD on the stock and I was wondering what the
message board "regulars" thought about it.
I also read the NY Post article today. John
Crudele (the writer) can be a bit of a rumor- mongerer
but his comments still caught my attention. He said
BDX may be the next big play in the genome sector.
Could this genome connection be behind the upswing, not
the buyout rumor? Pie in the sky?
that the rest of the market is rallying for a
change and the market is doing that with $ that were in
the strong stocks such as BDX. That's probably a
temporary effect and the chart still looks consistant with
a buyout. The jury is still out.
