the price is being "controlled" here folks. it will stay right here (+/- couple of points)regardless of news (litigation risks have nothing to do with it) until the "controllers" decide to let it move. dano has mentioned this several times in the past. there is a reason for all of this...look at the chart action regardless of "news" for the past six mths. its a dead give away! price will move slightly "kneejerk" +/- on various news / rumors but will quickly be brought back to "neutral" until the time is right for big time gains.....possibly mid summer......time will tell.....dg
My guess is that it was due to the BOTCHED recall of last summer. Look what happened to the stock price on that fateful triple witching day. I think a lot of people are still PO about that. You could not have picked a worse time to screw up and the stock has never been the same. You may be right about recovery taking until the issues are settled. I think Medinol issue is already pretty much over and I don't think the JNJ patent dispute will be major. However it is a good company with a lot of good products and obviously a lot in the pipeline. BSX is making a ton of money. I still think it is underpriced. Today is a bad day and the fact it has not gone down more shows a lot of strength.
