BDX was downgraded from Overweight to Neutral, JP Morgan said. $175 price target. Growth could be hurt by the macro backdrop.
But several airline and retail stocks are proving highly volatile.
The leadership is quite stark.
Let me give you the unassailable themes.
There is so much buying power in so many new areas.
Our first upside target is the $180 area.
If you are lucky enough to be long Becton Dickinson, stay with it.
