As anticipated Stock is moving away from Retail hands!
Jag, enjoyed this hilariously true post. You have a way of boiling things down! Still haven't given up on some filings but Monday is the last hope for 13's. If none then your vision is undoubtedly true. Happy to go for the ride and watch the show.
My biggest dilemma is if a buyout, and I think that is more likely than affy going alone, when will they strike (and who - Takeda/JJ/Amgen)?. The problem with waiting until approval is that eventually the share price will build to a crescendo of higher prices and the deal for closing out remaining shares goes above $20-25?. As compared to an earlier takeout (before approval) and closing out remaining shares for $14-15-16. This stock maybe a perfect storm.
One theory is the maestro's plan maybe more for the benefit of the acquirer to line up votes and help avoid a bidding war as much as to hustle retailers. With a possibility of multiple bidders a battle could still breakout. With stocks like affy who needs rodeos.
