Ya'll are two-faced!!!
When the stock is
performing "well" their is a strong belief in the company,
the management, and the technology
happens (like today), everybody becomes
financially-oreiented and is scrambling to sell or debating to
Where are the believers in this company today to tell
me how good things are (the products, the
management, the future)?
Fact is the company is
garbage and (to repeat earlier postings) run by strictly
financially-driven billionares with no concept of medicinal
scientific development (read: numerous product recalls in
the past year, DOJ...).
Let it be known there
is more negativity to follow.
Make your money
on the ups and downs of this stock if you can, but I
would appreciate all of you perpetrators to confess
that the focus of this company is not to provide the
best life-saving medical devices possible.
I did not even think your posting was worth a
reply. However, I feel it is my duty to tell you that
your are a an absolute fucking idiot. You obviously
don't have a clue about the hundreds of thousands of
lives that have been enhanced or saved by BSX products.
Let's reiterate that this is a VOLUNTARY recall. The
plan to fix this product is already in the works. BSX
should be commended for developing and marketing safe,
effective, and revolutionary products that literally save
lives. 3 MDR,s out of 35,000 procedures is hardly a
major malfunction. I wonder how many other companies
would have the moral conviction to withdrawl a 120
million dollar product with a 99.99915% success rate?
Hmmmm...I do not disagree with any that says this
most recent recall isn't an issue. However, according
to the company, they took quick and decisive action
regarding this problem. That is very important!
Unfortunately most companies have recalls of one sort or
another...sometimes they are for stupid things, other times for very
serious safety concerns.
Guidant is not without
similar types of issues:
9/23/98 Ventak AICD's
Class II recall
12/98 ACS RX Comet VP Mislabel
allowing a .5mm balloon to be used in a 3.0 mmcoronary
3/29/99 8761 Pacemakers field action
Stent System and Dilatation Catheter: shipped certain
size products in the U.S. without U.S.
11/4/98 Field Correction for AICD's: Pacemakers may cease
functioning without warning due to a compromised hermetic
seal on a chip carrier
9/18/98 Class II recall
faulty programmer software
6/12 and 6/30/98 Class
II recall for promotional literature for
"Unauthorized newsletters sent out containing inappropriate use
of the device
12/8/97 Ventak AICD models 1810
and 1815:"could...inappropriately deliver brief
periods of pacing at 190 bpm
11/22/96 Ventak Mini
AICD: wrong adhesive used
4/18/95 Safety Alert
regarding the Ventak PRx AICD...
I still believe
that BSX is on its way of straightening out their
problems...I think Tobin is someone that "walks the
talk"...and his message is coming out loud and clear...I
think he is clearly disturbed and already taking
action...give him a chance...
I don't work for BSX so my day to day knowledge
of the developmental status is rather limited. I was
in IC from '83 to about '92. Left medical, came
back, now out again - but am still very close to the
market and the folks running the big three. Have lived
in the Bay area since about '94. There's probably a
group on these boards who used to drink together as
kids in the early 80's while surgeons were telling us
that PTCA was a fad! I know we agree on the gyrations
of the BSX price, terrific traders stock but no my
cup of tea. If it moved faster I'd do calls but it
tends to get "stuck" rather often.
I am enriched with my 5,000 I purchased 2weeks
ago at 1.80 p/sh. Have you been able to establish a
message board site with UK/Yahoo or any of the other?
(With all due respect to those that see Biocompatibles
and BSC do not have a interrelationship.)
by the way, excellent call on CTSI.
those admirers who found BSX to be agargain at 30-32.
How do you say...YOW! Have a great weekend.
Thank you for the information.This buying is
small compared to what can happen when the Analysts and
the Fund Managers start waking up to this Company and
its Stent !
Currently its investors like you and
me who are buying , resulting in the share price
going up steadily.My gut feel is we will see a staedy
rise to approx 8 - 10 before the AHA meeting in Nov ,
but the real gains will come when there is big volume
buying by the Fund Managers after the analysts get a
surprise at the AHA - I hear that the initial results are
good and what will be presented is Angiographic
followup data from the early cases as the angiographic
data for the last few cases are expected to be
complete by early Dec'99. Now my sources may be off by a
2-4 weeks margin , so lets wait and see !
GUVERNOR where art thou ? Any new information ? Any thing
that we should know ? With your gains you are probably
on a deserved vacation !
Lets hear from you
Yeah, stents designed to slip off delivery
systems. You sound like an engineer for DCA or Laser who
is very happy to see problems with Rotablator
because you feel it represents a major opportunity for
you. Good luck with your device. I'm long. Stock is
up. I assume your neither long nor short, so it
doesn't matter to you either way.
i'll believe it when i see it!
interventional cardiologists are just going to flock and buy a
huge piece of capitol equipment, to operate a medical
device that is still unproven (?)in in-stent restenosis,
without looking at some of the other debulking options
A: the equipment will still collect dust in the
corner of the supplies cupboard
