I noticed that BSX hit a 52 week low today. The key question
is "Is this a profitable company temporarily beaten up" and
hence a classic value buy, or is it going to be mired in
recalls, law suits and over payment for Guidant for the next
few years.

With no dividend, share price appreciation is the only way
to increased value. The PEG ratio points to expected 13% growth.
Does this seem realistic? I suppose if the price gets low enough,
this becomes a buy as a cigar butt company, but that is probably
down around 7 a stub.

I'm currently leaning towards a wait and watch strategy on this one.

Chris - cheapskate
