If you are unemployed and need something to do, sure, go ahead and work at BSX, at least you will have a paycheck and benefits.
If you have other job offers on the table, then run far, far away from BSX.
Increase EPS through more layoffs, it's the BSX way. Rest assured that management will be getting big fat bonus checks with all of the money saved through the massive layoffs that are imminent.
"On the whole, Medtronic continues to look like the 800-lb gorilla in most of its markets. Although pacing performance was disappointing as the company anniversaried the Revo introduction, the ICD business is doing well. While St. Jude (STJ) continues to look like it has some momentum, Medtronic does appear to be picking up some incremental lead business. Boston Scientific (BSX) continues to look pretty hopeless."
You forgot your shorts in the dust? That's too bad, you probably can't afford new shorts either, you might get arrested for indecent exposure
I'm sure BSX exec mgmt are splurging their hard-earned "bonus bucks" on the Cape, enjoying life, while they continue to improve BSX profits by axing thousands of jobs since they can't increase revenue. Great job guys!
LOL! Good one! thisisabutthead already told everyone what prescription drugs he's taking to treat his diarrhea! I wonder how he got diarrhea? Must be from drinking too much BSX-brand Kool Aid LOL
Are you still wasting your time arguing with the nincompoops who have spammed up this board with more pork than a truck stop breakfast? Nincompoops like richiereject and thisisabutthead are too busy sucking their own d!<k$ and pumping this POS and other POS like RIMM, while bashing any facts that get in the way of their meth-induced delusions.
Are you still pumping this POS? Why don't you try something more productive, like skydiving without a parachute, just like your beloved BSX stock price, as it skydived from $45 to $5.
Oh boy, now you've done it! LOL. You posted facts! AHHHH!! That goes against what the pumpers on this board think!!
Since when is JNJ in DES?
Really, STJ is in CRM? Richyboy and thisisabargain assured the board that all STJ customers are buying BSX products only. I figured STJ must have declared bankruptcy by now.
If an offer is not made this weekend, please do us all a favor and take a long walk off a short pier
18% is the correct number
I'm not sure what kind of pro-BSX propaganda you like to read, but the facts speak for themselves.
More from the referenced article:
"Worse yet, the company was weakest in its largest and most significant businesses. Cardiac rhythm management sales were down 15% (missing estimates by more than 5%) and ICD sales were down 18% - much worse than the recently-reported results at St Jude (STJ) and strongly suggestive that BSX continues to cede share to St Jude and Medtronic (MDT).
The story with stent sales was not substantially better. Total stent revenue was down 7% (missing estimates) and drug-coated stent sales fell 6%"
LOL, I think today's resulted vindicated the bashers, while people like you who think that Mahoney is Lord and Savior keep drinking that BSX Kool Aid.
An 18% decline in ICD sales, and 7% decline in stent sales, looks like a company that's swirling the bowl....
For the delusional pumpers who have spammed up this board, a decline in revenues won't mean a thing to them.
