    WHY IS BSX DOWN? STJ IS UP 4%!

    I thought that your question was a very good one. Why is St. Jude up 4 percent today. So I click over to their stock page on yahoo and read the first headline.

    http://finance.yahoo.com/news/st-jude-medical-announces-fda-120000059.html

    St. Jude came out with a new ICD today. Hence the stock price is going up so I read on about this new defibrillator and all the article talks about is this great new shape designed to enhance patient comfort and on and on it goes about this shape.

    Then I look at the picture and see what looks like the shape of a Boston Scientific device. I'm thinking this is not new and innovative it is almost identical to the BSX shaped device. (which is patented) THis is the shape of BSX devices for generations now. Cognis Teligen the new devices punctua energen and incepta that was released in Nov 2011. See for your self.

    So now I'm wondering How did they get the writer of the article about St. Jude's new device to devote so much verbage about this great new shape. HHHHMMMMM

    St. Jude might get sued by BSX for patent infringement on this one.

    Very bizarre scenario, Something doesn't seem right to me.

    Just my humble opinion though!!!
