[Long-time DHR investor]. Critical test is upcoming as DHR seeks to breach its all-time high. If it does, I think a nice run is in store for investors. (I disagree with a prior messege that DHR would have to be as high as the $90's for any kind of split to take place.) If not, then we would be in for a lengthy period of lower price stagnation. In my view, decisive will be contribution to the bottom line made by the recent very expensive Sybron acquisition.
I do not have an opinion on a possible split but I am optimistic about fy'06 results since Culp raised expectations at the last conference. Normally the game is to keep expectations low and then exceed them. I agree that there is a lot riding Sybron's integration and performance. I still think that 75 is in the cards in the next 6 months.
