Bidding for these three. I am bidding for more Bon-Ton Stores (BONT) at $10.80, Baxter International (BAX) at $73.25 and GM (GM) at $34.50.
GM and Baxter. My only long purchases today were General Motors (GM) and Baxter (BAX). I just missed adding to Bon-Ton Stores (BONT).

All the way down to $72.85. I added to Baxter (BAX) all the way down to $72.85. Not sure why the shares sold off.

I'm picking up shares today after the spin-off announcement. In an attempt to boost innovation, raise profitability and reward shareholders, Baxter (BAX) has announced that the company is separating into two parts -- one for developing and marketing...
TheStreet's Jim Cramer says Wells Fargo is the winner of the Fed's bank stress tests, but Cramer is tired of Citigroup's excuses as to why it won't raise capital.
Shares of Baxter International have underperformed the rest of the healthcare sector, but the medical device maker is the perfect contrarian play due to its repeatable revenue model and impressive dividend.
The company is a steady grower, but its stock has swooned.
