    Typical stock action. Great earning report followed by a drop that is followed by a rise. Long term it will always trend up. Too much good stuff going for the well managed company.

    If abt raises 2021 guidance next week, the stock could go into upper $130s, and closed the year in the $130s range. PKI is up beat on its Q1 due to covid business, so abt should do well too.

    Earnings report in next two weeks will re-ignite share price. With Covid tests laynching to the general public without prescription, Q2 will see estimates rise. Any positive news on elective procedures will get us in the 130+ by month’s end.

    The way Covid is evolving, testing demand in wealthy countries will unlikely drop off the cliff in 2021 or 2022. It may become a sever flu kind of pandemic, not as many deaths as last 12 mos but still tax hospitals and requires lots of testing. And I would not be surprised if the world won't be 90% normal like 2019 until 2024 at minimum. Thus, abt should remain above its typical growth into 2024.

    Lets see a show of hands, everyone who is vaccinated are you going to buy a home test? Half the country is vaccinated and millions more everyday. Steadily declining revenues as vaccinations increase and the need declines.
    Bearish

    Is it a good time to buy ABT stock due to their rapid Covid-19 test kits?

    Rapid testing available in drugstores a big plus for ABT?

    Why so many diabetic patients prefer SENS over DEXCOM or Abbott CGM. Some quotes from customers:

    “My 19 yr old son has been using Eversense since July 2019. He does not want to go back to dexcom because those sensors fail and fall off way too frequently. I hope Senseonics is able to bring the 6 month & 12 month sensors to the market soon. I’ve spent many hours on the phone with Florida Blue, Carecentrix and US Med trying to get eversense approved & supplies, so I’m so saddened to read of latest setback. I have nothing but good things to say of the eversense sales representatives I’ve worked with.”

    “It has been just about 24 hours since I had the @eversensecgm removed and replaced. Everything went off without a hitch. I was injected with Lidocaine to numb the area. I felt a slight pinch from the needle going in, but it wasn't too much more than a normal insulin injection. The doctor tested the area with a point to see if I could feel anything. When I said that I did, he just waited longer for the area to numb more.Once the incision was made, the sensor came out easy. There was no pain or feeling when the tool was under my skin. After the sensor was removed, a new sensor was prepped and inserted. Again, I felt no pain. I could still move my arm and fingers because the numbing was only in the small surgical area on the upper arm. Once the doctor was done putting on surgical strips, this cover was applied. I could see some of the blood seeping through, but the bleeding is normal. The transmitter was placed on top until I took it off just now. This is the only blood that came out of this small incision. Many people have turned down the idea of the @eversensecgm because they are scared of the procedure. They think that it is extremely invasive. I'm here to tell you that it is not. All in all, it took 10 minutes from walking into the office to leaving. There was no pain after the lidocaine wore off either.Others don't like the idea of having a sensor under the skin, but it if it's accurate why not use something that has an extended wear option?I'll keep this cover on until it starts to come off. I want to make sure it heals properly.”
