    Best short in the VI business

    GDT's launch today is just adding fuel to BSX's
    fire -

    BSX, because of their pieced together
    company, is failing on all fronts. Everybody knows you

    can't drive earnings in the long run primarily thru
    acquistions. You drive it thru developing
    proprietary
    technology. . . like GDT. GDT buys R&D not earnings. .
    because anyone can buy
    earnings.

    Does BSX's
    Board of Directors ever think of CULTURE when they buy
    companies? You have a bunch of unhappy employees, so
    stressed out that they try to count revenue every which
    way they can.

    What a quarter for BSX. 1st
    they fail in execution(REcall), then they fail in

    accounting(REstatement of JPN Rev). They should call their stent the
    "RE-NIR".

    So the largest threat to GDT is a dead
    duck. Geez, they have such a good sales force . . .all
    for
    nothing.


    Here is some more facts to
    consider

    1. Both BSX and AVEI made large acquistions and
    are heavily debt laden. With free cash flow falling,
    that debt will be a larger burden than they 1st
    anticipated.

    2. Because BSX failed this quarter, their stock
    price has tanked. (and will tank further . . .
    history
    proves that if one accounting problem is found,
    there are many more- Wall St. will see BSX stock
    as
    dead money and pull out). This will decrease their
    buying power (for stock acquistions)so their
    growth
    strategy will be flawed.

    The stock will only go
    lower. . . . .
    Look at Sunbeam and Cendant. . . .
    read Cramer's article on why people should get out of
    stocks that mis-state their numbers. He said finging
    accounting problems are like cockroaches. . .once you find
    one, a whole bunch more come out. And each one that
    comes out punishes the stock. This is common in
    companies that to a lot of buying.

    Once a Wall St.
    Darling, but meeting Wall St. expectations is what drove
    this company in to the ground. See you below 30.

    • downlikemonica,

      I've been posting similiar
      views. I'm an ex-BSX employee; my friends inside say
      that ALL bonuses are cancelled this year. Many were
      staying around just for the bonus. So, watch the flood of
      remaining talent leave.

      BIGGER BETTER FASTER BIGGER
      BETTER FASTER BIGGER BETTER
      FASTER...

      Blya again.
      Even most stupid of the dogs could say
      much smarter thing than you did in your message. All
      you want for BSX stock price to go down so you can
      buy it really low and make good $. You do not give
      shit about others!

      • The more fire you put in your messages, the more
        you'll panic the other longs. I challenge you to give me
        ANY reasons to buy the stock now. I know all the
        VP's/Directors of BSX are just shivering, reading these posts
        because they now are considering other hidden flaws
        within their own departments.

        You sound as if you
        work for BSX. It's typical, I'd be scared also. . . I
        wouldn't want to be fired for every little thing I do
        either.

        I've met w/ some of your VP's (I think
        his name was Shabel or something) - so dammed cocky,
        engraved shirt, fancy cuffs. I can see him whipping you
        guys down below.

        Also, if what I said was so
        stupid, why did you read it, digest the news and respond
        so explosively? Did you like my codename that much?
        Fitting isn't it?

        Really, check out the charts of
        SOC and CD. . . BSX will match thoses charts. As soon
        as more stones are turned. . . . out come more
        cockroaches.

        Cheers
