    With the stock this high and so many years since the last split, maybe the timing is right!

    • My fellow investors, I am relatively new to this market, but I just wanted to let you know that since I have started trading in March, ABT is the only stock I am still keeping long term.
      Because its simply the best, it always slowly goes up, I have return of 90% percent since March of 96...

      In 2 years I have tried all kind of stocks - short term Technology, where you can make 50% in one month and then loose 60% in the next 2 weeks...
      Well, as we all know short term does not work that well, unless you watch stock market every five minutes, and can't sleep well at night...

      Anyway, after all my trading I end up doing the same - buying more ABT, when its a little down, and I has never regret it...
