    Shareholder Value

    Abbott is making the right moves in deals and acquisitions that will grow the company and enhance shareholder value. With the combination of growth, dependable earnings, positive political environment, demographics, and value compared to its peers, Abbott is a very good long term hold. IMHO we won't have to worry about any nasty earnings surprises either, since management wants to keep the stock price up to use as currency in future acquisitions. If we get to the upper $60's and stay there for a quarter, look for another split announcement.
