We have been talking about cardiology vs radiology for what seems like the last 50 messages. Don't you guys have anything useful to say concerning the stock itself? It was up 2 5/16 today. Why? Can we start talking about fundamental and technical aspects of the stock itself? Some of what you say is useful but it has gone way too far and seems to be digressing to a cardiology vs radiology profession.
Radiology VS cardiology..no. Radiology AND cardiology. You see, this is a company that services 2 very different industries (actually more) with supplies. As an investor, I think it is wise to be knowledgable about the company as a whole. As much as people like to talk pe ratios etc..I think one of the best indicators of a company is its performance in the service they provide..not just the ledger sheet. If you look back through the messages..you may find that people did ask those questions addressed on accasion specifically to my self. Most of the folks here have a good understanding of the cardiology and I don't..and they have asked questions about radiology. That is how people learn. I , BTW, don't see you adding anything to ANY of the conversation except criticism
Bought 150 @ 50 after the WSJ two months ago. Bought additional 150 @ 44 again. The reason:
