    Pumping doesn't make sense to me

    Wait, isn't Cramer a guy who has lectured about never buying a stock because of takeover rumors. Most rumors don't pan out.

    But I had t.v. on during his show (mistake- I usually change channels if the t.v. by my computer is on) and he was pumping AGN because he thinks another company might want AGN's products? This is shameless. There aren't even rumors now. There were rumors weeks ago, fueled by Cramer, before it turned out that GENZ was the target of a takeover. AGN sank down a few points. Cramer is trying to pump it up. Does his trust or a Wall Street friend have AGN shares to sell? Why would another company want to risk liability by buying a company that encourages the use of BOTOX off label in ways that have damaged some people in the past. The FDA has specifically approved the use of BOTOX for forehead wrinkles, nowhere near vulnerable parts of the body. There has been at least one case of BOTOX gravitating to and "freezing" parts of the body that are supposed to move. IMHO BOTOX should be kept far away from one's esophagus (swallowing and digesting) and lungs (breathing and living). Human skill may not be able to completely control the administration of BOTOX away from the forehead.
