NCE should be determined no later than tomorrow (Fri.) and I believe the chances are 90% in favor.
Also, on the rumors today - I have no indication that Teva is in the loop, but interesting consideration...they would own brand & generic, then NCE would not even be an issue, they would own the patents.
I think, strongly, that SR has very strong links. Around Oct 11, he also said potential BO in the next 7-15 days. And guess what, AZN news was out around Oct 22. Now he says (at 3 AM) FDA OB coming soon. Who would do that unless it is the real deal. And finally, he now says "no later than tomorrow". Which practically means "tomorrow". He is just trying to tone down his assertion to avoid any repercussions.
This is it. OB is tomorrow. I dearly hope it is during normal hours. Otherwise I will lose a lot of money on Nov options.
