Becton Dickinson Beats by Four Cents

I’m happy to see that our stocks are rebounding nicely this morning. Two Buy List earnings reports are due today. Fiserv (FISV) will come after the close. Before the bell, Becton Dickinson (BDX) said it earned $1.27 per share which was four cents better than estimates. The company reaffirmed full-year earnings-per-share of $5.05 to $5.15 which excludes four cents due to Obamacare. Note that the March quarter is BDX’s fiscal second quarter so their fiscal year is already half over.
