Appears the discount to OPK is getting wider, not closing. While I think a piece of it is due to the general volatility/manipulation in OPK, I think a big chunk of it now is skepticism on the deal closing.
No idea. Some clown(s) is/are blanketing the board with garbage for some reason to run content off the page. I have just been putting all the aliases on ignore and painstakingly filtering through it all thanks to Yahoo's new format. That being said, I have yet to see much in the way of relevant content over there anyway so that board is kind of a waste of time if you ask me. But I keep looking. Kind of like a train wreck I guess. From what I can tell there are a bunch of day traders and scammers playing that board (and OPK's stock for that matter) and few if any real investors there. Like I said - Cramer's kids...
No idea. They say second half which is obviously a very big window but I think generally they are waiting for regulatory approval. After they have that, I think it will go fairly quickly - one way or the other.
Regulators are government employees and never in a hurry so it is anyone's guess when that gets done.
