Sometimes people just get jealous of companies
that produce good products that are in demand.BD
happens to be one of those companies.When using sharp
objects, care is required.So at din din be extra careful
with that knife.
BD is a good company with good products. Why are
they engaging in predatory and illegal tactics to keep
another Great product out of the marketplace. Ask the
health care employees who have AIDS or hepatitis because
of needle sticks. Ever hear of The Sherman
so I think you should explain where you are
coming from when you use such strong words. Give us some
specifics please otherwise I will ignore you in the future.
I really think most of us are pretty good citizens
and want to do the right thing and by owning BDX we
know the good that they do in the world...so unless
you explain yourself good bye. By the way good
investing to you and your family.
You need to understand the healthcare industry
prior to making such a claim. BD cannot lock anyone out
of the market, however major health care purchasing
groups might. In other words, unless you can offer a
comprehensive line of healthcare products at substantially low
cost, it is very difficult to break into the market
with a new product. Incidentally, do you know what
those new products you speak of cost? On a higher
level, you are of course correct in that needle sticks
should be prevented at any cost, however the market has
put a price on what they are willing to pay for this
effort. BD did not, so if you have evidence of predatory
and illegal practices by BD, I suggest you come
forward with them. If you don't, please don't make
I'm amazed that a serious company like BDX would
trigger such an ongoing tit-for-tat about "ethics" of all
Haven't we had enough of that subject?
Why don't we focus on the company's performance and
fundamentals, enjoy the recent rally in the stock and move on
for God's sake.....!!!!
Thank you kindly.
Read your response. You are seeing the window
dressing. All of that is cheap.
Talk to a father
with over 20 years and a good record to boot. Read the
reasons they invented to keep him from retiring in a
little more than a year. Why the made up reasons: to
limit his severance.
When ethics count is when
you do the right thing and it's not what you wanted
Obviously you have an ax to grind! However
important this issue may be to you, this is not the forum
to voice and discuss such opinions. Perhaps there
are other BBS �s that are better suited for that type
People here are concerned with the
progress the company is making financially. If there are
or ever have been unethical practices going on at
BD, they have never been made public to any large
extent. If it happened(s), and it does becomes public, I
am sure that the market will handle the
circumstances as it does with most similar situations. In
addition, at the point, the shareholders will be faced with
making their own decision involving their financial
position in the company. Until that time, your comments
are duly noted. In the future, please try and be a
little less cryptic in your messages, if you do have any
comments of value.
Good Luck and Gods speed To all
Hear ! Hear ! to the previous comment. If there
is a personal ax to grind, it is in order to find
the appropriate forum in which to "grind it ". This
is for information about the company, not about one
indiidual's possible problem.
BDX is the worlds
largest manufacturer and distributor of disposable
syringes. Consider the potential for this product ( only )
on distribution to third world and undeveloped
countries. It is immense. As a user of this product, at
various times, there is quality at a very inexpensive
Consider also that this is merely an adjunct to the other
products, and their R & D , and you have a long term (2-4 )
Buy now, boy more, and relax and
enjoy the ride up.
Good investing to all . .
My friend that works at BD tells me that
Castellini is ready to retire and that the company will be
lead by co-presidents named Ludwig and Cohen. Why
would Castellini leave now in the middle of his so
called transformation plan? If it's true...what does it
mean to the company going forward? Any more info or
comments are appreciated.
Castellini isn't leaving any time soon.BDX is
setting a fight between both of these guys to see who is
going to survive and take over the controls when CC has
had enough. My bet is that CC will retire in 2-3
years with the next commander and chief ready to step
in.Just a guess........
I see you have a problem with freedom of speech.
I don't agree with Msg 291 either, but I most
certainly disagree with blocking others opinions especially
when YOU don't agree with them!!!!!
It is not that I do not agree with their opinion.
I just wish people would support their opinions
with facts. I have seen more than several instances in
which a stock was beaten down by the mere comments of
individuals (for example, the 300 point market drop this
week!). I have no problem with freedom of speech. In
fact, everyone is free to say what they want. As I am
doing right this minute. However, I am a skeptic and
cannot help but think that some people may have
alternate reasons for making comments about a particular
stock, especially when it is doing well.
this individual should start his or her own BB where
they and their cohorts can trash BD as much as they
want. I think this message board is about the stock,
not bad mouthing the company.
Enough of this, the
real issues is lots of insider selling going on,
anyone have a comment?
By the way does anyone know
where you can find quarterly company stock price
histories in table format? Good Luck and Gods speed To all
