    thoughts about bmy and gsk coming together...

    ... NYT article reported a few years ago that bmy is a viable take-over/merger target in the big pharma space.

    any thoughts on gsk hooking up with bmy?

    thanks in advance.

    • I really doubt they have managed to solve all the issues when Glaxo linked up with SmithKline, so trying to take on a huge company would be a disaster.

      When companies merge, top executives pocket huge amounts of money, while the rest of the company freezes, not knowing what will happen, and not wanting to make decisions that commit actions in the future that may be overturned.

      A merger is very disruptive, especially if it is a large bite.
