Amgen cannot buy out AFFY because anti-trust anti-monopoly rule. Someone else will buy AFFY. Then AFFY value will be at least an order of magnitude higher. If you want to buy spectacular stock to help your retirement, AFFY is it!! Load it up while it is so affordable and cheap. It takes stock holders with family members with kidney disease to realize the advantage of AFFY product, just regarding the affordable price and the far less frequency of application. They would not care whether 5 or 50 died from miss use of the product. Basher on Seeking Alpha, no matter how hard they tried, they cannot be moved and that is the fact!!!
Smart people will load up AFFY slowly for retirement benefit!!!
