    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.

    The other issue with EW - is that another company could come along and make a compatiable heart device and that competition (which is probably being developed right now) - once made public, will at the very least, bring EW back down to reality. EW does not have a lock on the device that they create, but at the moment, it is one of the better selling devices out there. So, the barrier of entry is easy, but the question remains, can a similar device be made by a competing company. My guess is Yes.

    EW appeared to present a strong quarter, but has a history of having amazing weeks followed by consolidation and going lower - retest in this case in the 105-100 region, before considering what is legit. We are not saying that this stock could go higher, but for reference, take X (U.S. Steel), which when it was allegedly firing on all cylinders went from 28-46 and then back down to 30 - that was after MS and others were calling for 60 PT, here we have MS calling for 120 PT, when in fact, today, we were less than 2.5 pts away from their PT. My thesis is that EW is both a buy and a sell. Today, was a mix of short covering and good earnings, some wanted in, and some need to cover, that perhaps shorted it at 98 - thinking the retest would be closer to 80 -- which it where the stock may have gone if they had missed earnings - that being said, we would not at all be surprised to see a retreat back to 105-100 area in the next two weeks, followed by a stronger finish (maybe 120 plus) before year end.
