    5-star analyst Danielle Antalffy, of SVB Leerink, writes of Baxter, “[We] see BAX's underlying fundamentals -- accelerating sales growth, meaningful margin expansion -- as unchanged. One of the most meaningful datapoints in this quarter was 6% peritoneal dialysis patient growth… well ahead of the mid-single-digit long-term growth outlook for the Renal business that the Street is modeling. As the COVID pressures begin to lift, visibility into the long-term growth drivers should improve, and we would expect the shares to move meaningfully higher.”

    And it doesn't hurt that Ray Dalio co-chief investment officer of the world's largest hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates just bought up 124,701 shares of the stock, a holding that is worth $9.73 million at current prices.

    Maybe if they started making batteries and losing money, the stock would skyrocket?

    Holding on to BAX even though they have some accounting issues. Ultimately recoverable, I believe.

    2021 will be a great year for this company and due for a breakout given the strong fundamentals and an aging population.

    I wonder what the investors who were unloading BAX today know that I don't? True, it's not terribly unusual to see a stock go down despite a solid earnings report; but it is VERY unusual to see that stock drop nearly 10% to a new 52-week low on huge volume.

    REUTERS: Baxter International Inc. reported adjusted earnings of $501 million or $0.97 (vs $0.89 forecast) per share for the period. - Revenue: $3.04 billion in Q4 vs. $2.83 billion in the same period last year. -Guidance: Next quarter EPS guidance: $0.72 to $0.74

    BAX is a safe heaven during this turmoil period. And the potential is relly good.

    I believe next week BAX will surprise for the following Macroeconomic reasons:

    1. Renal business pickup due to increase in hospitalization activities in urgent care category
    2. Their consumable use in healthcare has gone up due to higher usage/disposal rate in healthcare
    3. Non-covid healthcare activity increase over the last 6 month

    Why is Bax stock price keeps going down in spite of good fundamentals and very good potential post-covid with its products and services?
