The recent collaboration of BD with JDRF, the leading global organization funding type 1 diabetes research is a significant positive in our view. Additionally, the launch of the BD U-500 Insulin Syringe fortifies the company’s position in the niche market of insulin infusion technologies. BD has been gaining prominence in the market with the partnership with Vyaire Medical, the launch of BD Phoenix M50 ID/AST system and further investments to expand the capacity for its insulin syringe manufacturing operation. The company’s new launches FACSymphony, FACSCelesta and FACSMelody has also gained significant traction within a short span of time." (11/25/2016)

  • Citigroup Inc. analysts commented, "We see a diminishing impact on growth from emerging markets, which once contributed over 50 percent of total growth for the company but will likely only contribute about one third of total growth going forward, and as an aside we're slightly cautious on the timing of O-US synergy benefits from CFN. The extra burden will shift to developed markets," (9/23/2016)
