I'm with ya there! Merck's legal strategy is sound. Settling would open them up to all the fakes looking for an easy buck -- beyond those already on the docket.
Earlier this year I guestimated on this board that MRK would close the year at 43. It's looking as though I aimed short of the mark. Merck's clearly on the mend. Won't it be splendid to see it back in the 50s!!!
