A moron does not distinguish or understand from an idiot and a liar. Therefore we have a community organizer and a State Department chief kind of people who lead everybody to a hole or death.
I am sorry, she did not pick up the 3 am phone from his idiot, poor guy died. She made a big thing before. Everybody should be on entitlements if they wished.
but instead buy PFE or AGN ot BXLT.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
so you'd rather the billions NOT go to the co. So far in this country - not for long - we are all entitled to our opinions.
THE CAUSE: decades of voting and electing to public office those who have placed us in this current mess. True leadership in the United States is a diminishing attribute heading for extinction. We have none to blame but ourselves. The problem is that our choices when we vote do not represent a significant change from what has got us here. In other words "We The People" are pretty much screwed.
I'm surprised the two companies are announcing why and how they plan to scam the USA taxpayers and tax laws. Some nerve. Just not "pfair" and needs to be "pfizzled". Am not buying wither company' products as a result of this. They should be ashamed of themselves and boycotted.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
No, just those attempting to cheat it and get away with it. Only a pfool would allow that to happen. Hope this deal goes "pfoof" as it should.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Keep the money in the USA and use it here, not there. The rich get richer with this "deal." Block this merger and send a strong message to other companies looking to abscond with USA tax dollars that this, like so many Pfizer medications, will not be tolerated! Just hope there's no payola to those who regulate to look the other way.
c'mon, pal, this is all a scam to line the pockets of the already rich insiders. If you believe anything else then you're a fool. Don't buy the bull here - Irish eyes are smiling when the rich at Allergan and then Pfizer get richer. I hope the regulators block this merger - it's bad for almost everyone!
The dance still has a long way to go, but everyone seems to have the same guess about how the final outcome of the deal is supposed to end up; PFE/AGN merger, segment analysis of the new combined company, before a spinoff into a combined "established" company [likely as PFE; combining generic/non-patented drugs from both original companies] and "innovative" company [likely AGN; heavily leaning on patented drugs from both original companies and the slate of development stage products in the pipeline].
As a retail investor, I'm left with two question: 1)Should I stay invested in both companies after the spinoff and 2) if I had to make an either/or choice, which of the spun-off companies should I be invested in?
My general sense is that the new "PFE" would be the dividend play of the two (brand name, non-patented drugs/ generic drugs, throwing off more cash than can be simply re-invested or spent on purchasing other non-patented drugs), while the new "AGN" would be the growth play (far more upside, but also far more product risk, as AGN would be largely left slogging through the up/down process of drug approval).
Was hoping to read some general comments about the direction folks would think of leaning; Botox/Lipitor/Viagra/generic injectables/etc throwing off money under "PFE", or the continued development of product under "AGN"
Merger Totally Unfair And Cheats The USA Out Of Billions!
Those billions will now be spent on R&D benefiting even someone as foolish as you.
I would much rather the co. spent those billions on R&D than our slothful government waste it on pens and toilet paper.
I am a liberal too buddy and a strong Bernie supporter but crying after spilling the milk is a waste isn't it??? We knew this was coming wasn't it???
It is just the same as shipping jobs overseas. companies will and should search for cheaper ways to operate. If you have a very high tax structure on repatriated earnings then hell yes they will try to keep the money earned out of the us. how can we blame them?
If labor and supply cost is low overseas...oh hell yes.. they will take the work to china or wherever it is cheaper. If you are a company owner you will do the same. No patriotism involved here and no protectionism possible also.
This is a big Joke, Taxes for the USA Co. Is the Highest in the world. What they should do is lower the taxes and have a holiday for money over seas give the Co. a break for Co to bring the money back to the USA and put that money to work here which would really help our economy It's a no brainer.
