    Abbott and mergers.

    Only a guess (can't read the minds of
    management), but I doubt that Abbott would really be eager to
    merge with another major.
    A more likely scenario is
    -- if the pipeline really is that thin -- to make a
    move on some of the late stage biotechs: buy a basket
    of them relatively cheap and use marketing prowess
    (?) to off-set the lack of block-buster drugs.
    if a merger with another big player does get
    attractive, why a drug house? Another one of the medical
    suppliers might be a better fit.
    Any thoughts out there
    on the latter possibility?
