Congrats for your "Pfizer Buyout Speculation" because it summarize all the facts. While we want to see the success of Antares in the time frame of 3-5 years it won't happen for the simple reason we will see a big consolidation in the pharma industry this year. PFE is by far the big player and its recent decision of having $57 Billon in cash is evident: they want to acquire the best companies in the biotech sectors to become the leader worldwide.
Based on some researches and some friends I have in this industry I can say that the time where we will be bought is very close.
I have bought my shares based on that even if it would have been been better to wait a 3-5 years period I prefer to have $ 10/share now than an hypothetic $25-30 within 3-5 year period.
A final point is that Antares has not the cash to pursue its own organic development : it simply to expensive at this point of time in their history : too many sucesses too fast can ony lead to be bought by a bigger company : it's life.
So buy Antares shares as much as you can and you will be soon rewarded and have your cash in your hands. After all, $10/share is not bad at all !
