The ABT had been in the family for fifty years with sell-offs and diversification accounting for the piddly number of shares after all of that time, so I need no education with regard to Abbott's disposition, champ.
Of course, I wish all Abbott holders good fortune bcause I totally sympathize.
I held 44K shares of Abbott Laboratories until about four years ago until I saw the hanwritng in the wall, and it took about two years for total disposal. I also had a shhtload of Merck, and I disposed of it with greater haste about three years ago.
Aok, With all due respect ole chum; you have to take in consideration that all of us "dip shetts" that have been treading water have been doing so financed by ABT DIVVYs for a good long while. Yes, evertthing comes to an end and things have been neutral for a long time; BUT- I have received my Divvy checks as regualr as one of Plute's wife's cuKoo clocks! Ummmm? how long you been getting BIG BUCKS from NFI???? and what is the % growth of same over that period? I rest my caja Senior! Generics, Boo Hiss, we don' need no stinkin' generics! Creper
