Neurocrine Biosciences Inc. Message Board

    If you sold today ...

    you will cry. I still believe a deal is in the works:

    1.) Neurocrine has trimmed costs to the bone. This is the equivalent of putting a nice dress on for prom.

    2.) The company has nicely shored up its cash position with their sale - leaseback on their property. This buys them negotiating collateral in a discussion. They can survive longer as a stand alone biotech company and do not have to jump at the first offer. This is equivalent to hiking up the dress but waiting for the quarterback to notice.

    3.) They have progressed their pipeline nicely and big Pharma needs drugs desperately.

    Yes, if you sold because a partnership or buyout was not announced yesterday, you will be stunned when it comes out of left field before the start of trading one Monday morning.
