    Count me in for 8,765 shares @ 20.63

    Hi Kel,

    Got a little lucky on the trade on this one today, the in out, back in thing, great firm, and timely too, drug sector going up and all.

    My target is 24.05 and that's where my sell oreder is placed.

    Buy out, maybe, it's a little on the big side for that though, then again, look what GILD paid for VRUS the other week.

    That's what creeps me out about shorting, the potential of a buyout, could you imagine being short that VRUS and the next trading day it's up 90%.

    Man o man.................................

    • I had just bought GILD a few days before the buyout around $40.00 as it looked like a good value. The buyout news sent it down about $4.
      I sold it for an approx 10% loss almost right away because I thought the deal was bad for GILD shareholders. Think of the EPS dilution they'll have with added shares, debt costs, etc.

      Congrats on the MYL trade. I do some like that myself from time to time.

      Kel
