    Hey Gresshard, you think Alcon will buy out RGRX on the otc market to get in bed with the newest and best drug(now has a bilogic designation from the FDA) for dry eye syndrome. No side effects with 259.Trial almost over and this biologic will take over that 7Billion dollar market.The Diver

    I started following "lionstock-aletrs” (Gooogle it - off course without any space or dash in between the words) and their notifications are better than anyone else.

    Best surgical ophthalmic company in America. Hopefully this spin-off works out for them. As a disclaimer, I'm an ophthalmologist who uses lots of their hardware. Don't care much about the contact lenses, but that's a big part of their business too.

    hoping Alcon starts to move upwards upon next earnings and beyond.

    I work in the business (Tech) and all the surgeons im working for, which is 4 Ophthalmologists, are planning Panoptix IOL implants for people willing to shelve the 6 fo 7k dollars for it.
    the worry is halos at night because of concentric rings, but what I'm hearing, it's no where near as bad as the older lenses. that's huge.

    Baby Boomers are needing cataract surgery, and the numbers are piling in at our practice, and it's off season here in Florida.

    the snow birds are coming towards the end of this month, at least some of them. the following month will be more.

    I don't know the exact numbers. but what I'm guesstimating is about 5 to 10 percent of our patients are electing upgraded lenses at this moment.

    I'll keep you guys informed of our post-op outcomes as the time goes by.

    cheers!

    Does anyone know what Alcon’s ‘core net income’ was in 2018? Apparently they plan to pay a dividend equal to 10% of their core net income in 2020, and I’m curious what the ballpark figure might be.

    Will Alcon ever pay a dividend? I received these shares in a spin-off (or whatever the technical term is). I am not sure if I should sell or hold. I am retired and have primarily an income / dividend based portfolio. However, if this is a great company / investment I guess I would hold. Are any dividends in the cards? Any commentary appreciated.
