If you check my record on this board, I have always been a basher on the management for at least 10 years. It has taken too much pounding, more than it deserved. But by the bell after 12 rounds, it is still standing, and fighting. For that, it earned my respect (just like the Iwo Jima Japanese soldiers did). Now I decide to move on to my other interests and not to short BSX anymore. Investing is not just about money, sometimes it's about characters too. And BSX management showed it.
So................Kevin what exactly do you attribute the terrible performance of this company to? production workers, janitors, research and development? C'mon there is no leadership - hasn't been for eons. People like Nicholas and Tobin are two of the greediest jerks on this earth. The decline and fall of this once great company can be to a large degree caused because of these two greedy $%^&*. How you have the gall to say you respect management is beyond me................oh - wait.....you must be talking about Ray Elliot. The guy who came in and conjured up some new acronyms, walked and talked like he was the saviour and then left the company with 22 million dollars and a huge amount of stock. And you talk about character............take a look around man - the place is filled with greed and #$%$.
