A story appeared about Amylin's unconfirmed bid in Bloomberg.It went up and down for weeks-- I could have sold. Fortunately Ichan was an active Stock holder-He threatened Amylin with lawsuit to disclose if Amylin had received the bid--after 5 weeks-Amylin and Ichan had a peace deal-Amylin disclosed that they had hired 2 financial advisors to seek higher bids--final bid was 31$--compared to original bid of 22$ (that was rumored). I remained invested-bought more at 27$, 6 weeks before the final announcement.
There are good reporters at Sun Times and Bloomberg who are likely to report on someone's interest in Amarin during next 90 days-maybe sooner. But remember that the stock will hit 20 immediately. as happened with Amylin this year and Amarin last year. As far as Patents or NCE--that will do little to budge the stock-by 10% or so. It will be Buyout rumor that will move the stock by>50%.
