    Dividend Increase

    Ditto that. Why raise the dividend now? Let things continue to improve -- yes, let the stock take care of the shareholders. Better to keep that money to build reserves. The Vioxx thing will start fading later next year. Once that happens, then Merck can consider a dividend increase. For now, let it keep on keepin' on. Merck is on a roll that's only just begin. Anyone with an eye on the long-term ball is going to make a lot of money over time with Merck.
