    Rumor: VRTX to buy ACHN?

    First, I'm not sure what you would classify as outrageous but ACHN will cost 25% of Vertex's current market cap.
    Second, any company without a dominant position in the HCV market could make the purchase and have their stock respond positively. In the CSS of Vertex it will seem like, and probably be, desperation.
