Hi e

I actually have been doing that as it sinks. They earn enough that there should be a bottom offered by the stable income from the other surgical and medical devices. One analyst has pegged them at $18. My basis is now around $33. I unfortunately do not get paid a dividend to wait which is one reason I didn't want to own them and preferred the synthetic long.

Here is something I can't believe--my last puts were at $27.50 and just expired. I figured I was going to be the proud owner of 200 more shares since the stock was at $26. It never got exercised. What happened? Someone didn't want to make a $1.50?

What would you do from here with BSX?
