Most of the analysts are of the same mindset as those of us, "intheknow", downgraded, and neutral, at best. No real hope for big gains in the near future. Let you guys tout the loser. The news...,,,... it's just around the bend...just a few more days for the big news..and we're not even playing with it. We don't know how.Don't have the mindset, don't have a clue.
It's the contacts and tachy revenue increase, not to mention the critical mass "shore-up" in the brady market. It's a small circle, big get.. . bigger and the rest will scratch their heads, wondering how they can steal a piece without tortually interfering. It's a great industry, the device sector, and the most aggressive pirate, the greatest marketing machine, is here right accross town. Mr.T is very positive on STJ. Me,too, but not now. Let's get the new guys OJT overwith and wait for the secret weapon to kick in, Daig, be patient. Let the present slugs retire with their fat payoff packages and Daig will be our savior. Yeah, right.You think Stark got paid enough for Daig? Ask any of the seasoned pacer salesmen if they would consider throwing in with STJ. Their answer is a resounding NO. MDT, GDT, are their preferable choices. I wonder why.? Hope the doubletalk at the investor's conference will help today. Good Luck..STJ needs it.
If the Premier announcement is Ho's big news, he is off base. It's not secret MDT was working with Premier. So are GDT and STJ. Its a non-exclusive arrangement. MDT may be first, but they are not the only ones who will work with Premier going forward. Remember last year STJ won the biggest chunk of the business from Kaiser.
Ho, is that your best shot? Do you have anything of substance to add to this dialogue? If I am on STJ's payroll, that's no different than most of this board. In my case, however, I am trying to build up and support this company. What's your game?
Please tell us what you think is the big news. GDT buying intermedics isn't big news. However if they don't buy intermedics thats big news.
By the way I'm glad to read that it's still some positive guys on the board. I have lost all my private saved money on this stock, but I'm trying to see the light in the end of the tunnel anyway. I hope that it won't be the light of the train running me down when I finally see the light.

Why would GDT want IMD? By 3rd Qtr they will supassed them in brady sales (blowing the doors off as they sail past!) and be challenging STJ with their new Ireland factory. GDT would rather someone else suffer the distraction of integrating products and personnel. They don't need a factory in Texas, the Irish are giving them plenty of financial reasons to use their labor. Any serious offer GDT makes would likey reflect the legal liability and intellectual property values mostly.
Regarding the CHF posts, ask the docs who controls CHF mindshare. I believe a PhD or two from Daig will not be the answer.
