    The Presumption May Be Wrong ---

    Attach your data to this enormous generalization that the vast majority of people in the US have heart disease or will as well as the global population - I am not disagreeing with you, I am saying back up what you say with actual data - then perhaps, EW will meet its number. People can still change and often due to a health scare - regardless of their age in life.

  • The growth of EW is based on its heart valve product but it also assumes with an aging baby booming populations that all will have some level or a greater level of heart disease. I would be curious to know what if people are not eating as much red meat, or their heart is in better shape, far better, than would require the use of any type of valve - so while the company is indeed interesting, it is banking on the fact that millions of people will eat poorly and end up with heart disease requiring some level of treatment that EW offers. We respectfully disagree. People are far more aware of what they eat, and Americans are getting healthier - in the interim, we would rather look at health company that focuses on stem cell research - that is the way of the future - EW NEEDS people to be ill and poor eaters - and therefore, at this time, we would consider analyst' numbers based on poor eating being a U.S. and global epidemic -- in order for EW or even MDT to make their numbers in their future.
