BDX Daily ChartBDX has been on my watch list for a really long time – well before I started this blog.  I realized I needed to write about them since they were one of my longer term positions over the past year, but I couldn’t find anything on lamdar about them when I looked them up.  I think I started liking them around the time I got injured a lot and came to know the ACE brand pretty well.  ACE was recently sold to 3M, but BD remains a solid company.

Solid, but not amazing.  You won’t make a ton of money with them, but it moves slow enough that you most likely won’t lose a ton of money overnight either.  I’m not sure I would like BDX so much if I didn’t have a previous affinity for them, but it’s always good to have some comfortable stocks to position trade if your alternative is cash/money market.
