    Why does ABT keep sliding?

    Abbott has increased
    its dividend payout for 37
    consecutive years, including an 11
    per cent increase earlier this year,
    and was named a top dividend
    stock in Fortune and The Wall
    Street Journal. Additionally, Abbott
    is a member of the S&P 500
    Dividend Aristocrats Index, which
    tracks companies that have annually
    increased their dividend for
    25 consecutive years. Compared
    to the S&P 500, Abbott is cheaper,
    faster growing, higher yielding and
    far more stable, and has significantly
    outperformed the S&P 500
    over the medium and long term.

    Forget the day to day!
