    Gilead Mkt Cap has gone up 130% since Pharmasset Acquisition

    People thought Gilead was really taking a chance when they had a $30 Billion Market Cap and PAID $11 Billion to acquire Pharmasset (pre FDA Approval).

    NOW who is criticizing that deal??

    Gilead SPENT $11 Billion to have their market cap INCREASE $38 Billion over the next 16 months!

    Gilead Management must feel vindicated.

    So...

    Lilly has a $60 Billion Market Cap
    SNY has a $129 Billion Market Cap
    Merck has a $130 Billion Market Cap

    People who think spending $10 to $15 Billion by one of these companies on a possible BLOCKBUSTER acquisition like MNKD is impossible - think again.

    IF there is strong interest...could see a bidding war erupt.
