    Take a Look

    GDT is a good company, a competitor of MDT. You
    might want to stay with MDT and look at another
    competitor of GDT, that being Arterial Vascular Engineering
    (AVEI). IMHO, with MDT and AVEI you would have eggs in
    different baskets, but also have the leaders in GDT fields.
    BTW, I like AVEI, MDT, BSX and GDT, in that order.

    • Earlier this year, Value Line also was ho-hum on
      MDT, indicating it's stock value took into account the
      projected profit growth for the next couple of years. It
      was 55 at the time. I watched it slip down to 48 or
      so. I held in spite of the Value Line outlook. Now
      it's jumped to the 69 neighborhood. I've held this
      stock for (only) a couple of years, but it has a track
      record of big jumps either way in one day, sliding
      downwards a bit (to get rid of the bears?) and then - ZOOM!
      - a sudden upward push. For the long-term minded,
      it's paid off beautifully.
