Piper Jaffray analyst William Quirk says that post CareFusion, Becton Dickinson is "swaying away from a consistent beat-and-raise story." His remarks follow CareFusion international website checks that continued to suggest little new outside the U.S. product launches during the quarter. The analyst modestly lowered his Street-high Q4 revenue estimate and maintains an Overweight rating on Becton Dickinson with a $213 price target. He views the pending C.R. Bard (BCR) acquisition as "very attractive."
