I disagree with you! It does have a bearing on Eln's success. Elan has been in negative cash flow all these years, now without its big brother to look over, Eln is on its own!!!! Throw the scam company to wolves and let them shred it to pieces.
What a moron! You can't be that stupid, so you must be bashing the stock with statements you know are false. Elan owns half of Tysabri and the option to buy the other half on change of control of BIIB. Whoever acquires BIIB will have to live with Elan as half owner of Tysabri if Elan choose not buy the other half.
If anyone reading this message board is really interested in finding out the facts about Elan, I suggest that they go to investorvillage.com and read the most highly recommended posting for the past week.
