    Merrill Lynch report...

    I do not see any Analysts reports recommending a Hold/sell. Yet we seem to trend down. Obviously there has to be someone propelling MCK down that road.

    Who are the villains.?

    • Most likely suspect in the selling are
      institutions that formerly held HBOC. That's probably who's
      worried about MCK/HBOC (I came to MCK from HBOC myself
      and wouldn't be holding if not for

      Sometimes downward spirals simply feed on themselves...and
      until there's a selling climax (perhaps like last week)
      that takes out the last weak links, and the valuations
      become so appealing, the stock can't respond no matter
      who's recommending it.
      Dollar wise this is one of
      my 3 largest holdings (w/CSCO and AMGN) so it's
      disappointing to see this gross over reaction. However, if MCK
      hits earnings of $3.00 in FY2000 and $3.73 in calendar
      2000 with rising orders at HBOC, IMHO we'll see 100
      plus. However until a base is set, it's gut check time
      for us good guys. Personally I'm long thru 2000. Good
