    trouble in paradise

    Wojo thanks for the info. Here's my big question
    and concern. At the end of the 2nd quarter, the
    company made a big push to publicize it's glucose monitor
    project. They even went so far as to announce this at an
    analyst meeting. Three months later they cancel the
    program and now it looks like they are pulling back from
    the whole diabetic healthcare market. Their actions
    seem disjointed at best. I've admired this company for
    a long time, but now I'm concerned.

    I imagine StckMarktExpert has changed his Yahoo

    emphatic insitence that a BDX - ABT deal was done. Lots of
    loose cannons on this board, but he very well may be
    the worst of the lot. Certainly the most uninformed

    After several years of pretty good appreciation, their stock has been very flat this year. The company has not been able to
    really accelerate much top line growth. It appears the market has realized this. Much of their core business is in mature areas of
    the medical supply industry so not much growth potential there. They have made a few small targeted aquisitions. Not a bad
    strategy, but they do not seem to have the courage or interest in making a bigger play. Therefor, do not see much growth in year
