I just reveived a prospectus for fidelity select portfolios (as of 2-28-98) & Abbott Labs was one their top 10 holdings. Fidelity owned 1,139,900 shares for a total value of $85,278,769. I have to assume that a well managed mutual fund with good historical earnings would not own a dog stock. So what gives with Abbott. Are earnings/sales starting to trend down or is this a short term problem of the co being out of favor with investors. Just through that Abbott investors may be interested in knowing fidelity position in the stock.
