    Astra Zeneca future similar to Amgen

    Astra Zeneca sales are in jeopardy from patents expiring for Nexium and Crestor.They have been buying co. in diabetes and cardio area--but that's not enough to fill the leaking bucket.Chances of Astra Zeneca buying Onyx are pretty high if Amgen is not able to close a deal soon.

    • If you read analysts comments,it seems Astra Zeneca is looking a blockbuster drug co. that fills the gap for next 1-5 years.Onyx fits that category.AZN CEO worked at Roche(Genentech) close to Onyx headquarters.He probably would be able to advance Onyx future better than Amgen CEO--who is an investment banker.
