    BSX ot MDT

    My broker tells me MDT is a better investment than BSX and I should switch. Many times I buy and sell on line without him being involved and BSX was one those times I did not consult with him. He is good at what he does but he usually does not like what I pick. Does anyone here think MDT is better?

      Medtronic is the 800lbs. gorilla in the medical device space. However their share price and stock reflects that if you look at the key statistics tab you will see many stats that also reflect that. I am sure that many stock brokers will recommend MDT over BSX for those very reasons. There is little to no risk in investing in Medtronic.

      I think bsx has more potential for the stock doubling then Medtronic. If you are looking for a stock that is undervalued because most of the stock brokers recommend something else, BSX is a good pick. And as you have stated in the past getting into a stock at its low point and catching the rise before everybody else does is where you want to be.

      • ma45, thank you and I agree 100%. Your comments confirm my feeling that BSX is safer and has more potential. Frankly, I believe he is just miffed a little he was not my "expert" stock picker this time. As a matter of fact he started mumbling the very first time he saw the symbol in my portfolio. Well, brokers have feelings too! If BSX goes to a little higher I will start needling him that he should buy some for himself. Come to think about it, he never buys any of my picks. At least that is what he says. That just does not seem right. I wonder if he is being honest with me.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy
