I just saw the repurchase news,great way for the company to increase value & show confidence in the stock by reducing the amount of shares outstanding,that explains it TY.
Big move up? Let me know when it gets back to where it was a month ago, and I'm not even talking about relative to the S&P. (I've been holding since before the Vioxx debacle, hopeful for a capital gain someday but happy enough now with the dividends.)
I don't know about that,MRK is close to it's high of the year with this $2.00+- lift,been holding this in a DRIP account for quite a few years "pre VIOXX" as well, I'm quite pleased with the results,could always be better that's for sure GL.
