I am no idiot . I heard the same rumor. I posted here a lot less stridently then expert and was accused of being all sorts of nasty things. If anybody subscribes to the pointcast network cue up Boston Scientific BSX and you will see that last week there was a story where Abbot once again reinterated their attentions to buy a company in the market cap range of BSX or BDX.
This rumor may never pan out but it is not as unrealistic as many elements here on this board are pretending it to be. Have a good weekend everyone.
