    Why Idenix will be acquired


    My money is on Merck buying Idenix. Why? Well, Gilead and Bristol could go it alone with their respective drugs and rely on each other for complementary therapy. Merck and Abbott however, need Idenix. Merck is facing a huge patent cliff with Singulair set to go generic this year. That's a $3.2 Billion hole that Merck needs to fill. One which I think they fill with a Hep C therapy, and buying Idenix gets them the whole solution... Nuc + NS5a. I think a lot of hedge funds realize it's simple a matter of time before IDIX is acquired.
