For those who have been looking at the thread, the firm is of course Becton Dickinson, BDX, which I think was one of Mr Simpson's picks.I put in a fake stock split (1:4 consolidation) for all the per-share figures and the shares outstanding numbers to keep it anonymous.Their current share price is $75, not $300, and the current earnings are about $5.60/share etc.Why did I raise the topic?I really love a company whose earnings grew pleasantly straight through the crash.It seems to be a real gem being overlooked.JimI had searched and could not find a company that matched all of the detail you provided. The 1:4 split threw me off. Yes, I like BDX. It currently represents 2.3% of my portfolio. I had actually earmarked it as my number one pick to add too a few weeks ago but I was hoping for some sort of panic (EURO driven perhaps) to give me a better entry price. I was thinking of brining it up to around 5% of my portfolio.Nice to see that I am not alone in thinking this looks like a promising pick.StevnFool
