    AZN rumor

    Shire management has always impressed me. I can't believe they would accept any offer at less than 50% premium over today's price. Better yet would be if this rumor was false. I hope I'm right.

      Shire is done...CEO quits to be with his family, yeah right. Mr. big pharma and shire are finalizing the details as we speak and told angus his services are no longer needed.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • Sure thing... so when is the buyout and what is the premium? It's hard to place a lot of credence on anything you say when this is only your 2nd post on the yahoo boards and you have no track record, so to speak.

        Its really quite simple, shire has makes alot of money and there are too many desperate big pharmas out there looking to to hide the fact that their pipelines are sparse (at best) and add in the fact that generics are coming or have already come leads to only one conclusion for big pharma...if we cant innovate to grow then we will buy our way there. Wyeth, genzyme, cephalon to name a few got taken from me and shire will be no different. oh forgot... Impax's days are numbered too.

        Just because i don't post doesn't change the fact that these thing will happen.

        My guess is that whomever will pay too much (130-150) and layoff 75% of the company(eventually) and close facilties to even things out. Look at Cephalon for example, Teva paid way too much for that turd and that had far less than Shire.

        Nothing is a sure thing, i just wouldn't be surprised that's all.

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

      Simple anything small that makes money and the big fish will come.

      • There have been rumors of SHPGY getting bought out for several years now and yet it did not happen, even though the company has had steady growth all that time. I see no difference in regards to this latest rumor. I'd much prefer SHPGY continue on as-is, but if the premium on any offer is at least 50% I'll tender.
