It has been stated here that some of the posters would want a buyout to occur.......even positing a buyout price of $32.00 or so. First of all, that's ridiculous. But, let me ask a question of anyone who knows the thought process of institutional investment. If there is an offer for buyout, I am assuming the current shareholders would need to say yes or no. My question is......after all of the serious dd done by the analysts of the institutions who have invested a lot of money in Insmed, what kind of a return would be needed for them to be happy or to look good? 100%, 200%, 500%, 1000%, more??
OK, now that has been figured out, what would an institution like Wells Fargo want in terms of a return for the 1.9 million shares that they bought in the 4th quarter of 2013? Looking at the price action during that time, they would have bought in for an approximate price per share of 12.00-17.00 during that time. So, at what price would their manager be happy to say yes to a buyout offer? What of the other institutions?
Just wasting some time here watching the snow hammer us outside the window (LOL)
Historian,,I think if a buyout where to come, and I'm not in the camp that it would, it would have
to be enough to cause a majority of the current stockholders to agree to it. Any buyout woul have
to be either supported, or not by the board of directors. They would be very instrumental in making
a buyout happen.
