    Newest Rumor

    What's the deal with this stock? Is the rumor mill still hot or is this just a blowover like the J&J, Medtronic, Boston Scientific hearsay? Down 2 today after being up almost the same yesterday. I think long time holders are taking advantage of this little upswing. Talk to me!!!!!!

    • Sorry if my comments came off as pompous... I monitor your comments on BCR but don't usually jump in. Cancer is just a topic that I monitor closely and know a bit too much about.

      I'm completely unfamiliar with the BCR rumor mill, but try this one on for size.... A real earnings breakout seems unlikely
      given the shape of the business. A sale must be considered an option. But the BCR business portfolio doesn't seem to fit anyone in
      particular. What to do? Break it up. Urology might be a great fit and warrant paying a price as a strategic buyer to Bristol Myers
      Convatec unit. The CV business could make sense for a number of folks given the dynamic in that/those markets. Could work with either
      JNJ or BSE for example, and as a standalone chunk might fetch a pretty nice price to someone feeling the pressure to get bigger
      faster. Just a thought. Not pompous.

    • I've given up trying to figure out this stock. Rumors are all over the place -- selling cardiology? being acquired? another round of layoffs? I sold some shares yesterday when it had it's brief run-up -- first time I guessed right in a long time.
