If they going to bid on npsp it will have to be soon
My take is that a buyout of NPSP by SHPG is insufficient in size to deter the big boys from pursuing SHPG. Regardless of any such potential move by SHPG (and I suspect it is low probability), I fully expect a bidding war for SHPG to emerge.
Disclaimer: long SHPG
Wonder why you got a thumbs down, this is good news from NPSP if there is a bidding war on Shire.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
