      Maybe the high level executives will be arrested after
      (as happened at C.R. Bard in 1992)
      someone is
      killed from the NIR product that is not to be
      per Larry Best press release ?? Corporation now

      • Saw two NIR on Socs placed today in difficult
        anatomy. The stents both worked very well. There is no way
        BSC would leave any product on the market that would
        risk patients. I think the market showed today that
        these are unfounded rumors. BSC is a strong company
        that is number one in virtually every division they
        compete in. With the purchase of Schnieder, their
        marketshare will only increaser plus add to the pipeline for
        future devices.

      • NIR has been blessed by every doc at every
        conference I've been to or heard about.

        research paper dated 7/15/98 lowered BSX's eps yet they
        even stated their target price for BSX to be $100 by
        mid 1999 (not taking into account the

        The same NIR that is selling in US has been selling
        in Euorpe for along time. It is the best selling
        stent there and will be in the US soon, especailly at
        the rate they are flying out the door. Manufacturing
        can't keep up with the demand. In fact BSX has limited
        the number of hospitals that can order because of the

        Bet: BSX will go up more than it goes down for the
        next month. I expect it to be around 80 at spilt and
        then ever upward.

        Looking at today's price I
        would say the stock has rebounded from the rumor and
        therefore most of the rumor has been taken into account as
        just competitive scare tactics.

        If you don't
        think the other stent mfgrs aren't shaking in their
        boots with the NIR now out you are sorely mistaken.
