If BSX continues to burn through its structural free cash flow at the same rate as it did in 2010, based on its most recent quarter working capital, the company will run out of money in a little over 18 months. This is far too soon for any turn around to happen.
I've read that Boston has some tihngs in the pipeline, but these won't be able to stop the current cash burn.
Of course this person is a short and you are correct to cut him off. His "Burning Cash" headline mimics a "Shock & Awe" move but simply is not true. The CORDIS win alone represents a good boost in coming quarters for BSX.
I have learned a long time ago. Self righteous holier then thou type people many times lack the ability to see the forest because of the trees. Take a step back and take a deep breath.
Take your short position and be honest about it. I know, now I'll get your "I'm not shorting the stock I think it is unamerican." Statement. Or your "I'm a value investor" stuff. I have read many of your previous messages. and this pattern is typical for you.
So If there is no value here then why don't you move on or be honest about your position and interests here.
