2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score

Bax medical devices revenue ~9b, bio science ~7b
using 3X sales of medical devices company and 4X for drugs company, 27b+28b = 55b market cap,as of June 2014, BAX market cap is 39b, so it can sell for

72 * (1 + 16/39) = 99

72 is current stock price, with an upside of around 35%

so my guess is BAX may be able to sell for around 90 after spin-off.
