Let me give you the unassailable themes.
There is so much buying power in so many new areas.
Traders should look to go long BCR near $210 if it pulls back.
Buyers should stay on the sidelines of Bard until a base is formed, potentially at a lower level.
Two significant, but subtle forces may threaten the group in the next 12 months.
We would begin trimming our position with a stop-loss just below $180.
With no top in sight, we remain bulls on this name.
