    Baby Boomers

    those baby boomers are going to age. what happens when you age? you get sick. what are baby boomers going to need? DRUGS. yes, DRUGS.

    yes, i believe the next quarter will be brutal to some companies, but not all. the market will be a stock pickers market, not mutual funds.

    my parents drink ensure daily, and so do my relatives. i think this aging population will consume more and more ensure. my father had throat cancer. every doctor he seen told him to drink ensure. the most nutritional drink on the market. this is just one of many items sold by abt.

    as for the stock split, i could care less. no matter which way you slice a whole pizza, you still have a whole pizza. yes splits make shares more affordable for "the little guy", but valuation is key.

    i believe the drug sector is key for the baby boomers.

    go abt!!!
