Look at medical stocks and see that they are flat to down. GDT also down. St.Jude up, but weak stocks are more up after the close of the year. Shorts buying back. MDT is not usually a good trading stock. It works better if held long. Look at last years gains. MDT will gain 35% in 98. Not bad compared to the bank.
I'm new at message boards and went looking for comment about yesterday's slide. Thanks! Your comments are right. I've owned MDT since 1986 and one more split this year will make retirement a lot easier.
