I suppose a 2nd bidder could emerge, but remember it's all but certain that SHPG has specified a significant breakup fee in the event NPSP pulls out of the deal. I suspect there is no other bidder though, and institutional shareholders of NPSP will overwhelmingly vote in favor of the deal, take nice profits, and move on to their next investment/trade. The shareholder lawsuits are just noise.
SHPG has effectively taken on the risks and rewards associated with Natpara. If you think the tail risk of any adverse FDA ruling is negligible, then SHPG should stand to gain on a positive outcome. In that case, buying SHPG on any pullback related to the takeover news - after all SHPG just blew $5B here and it's not certain all their shareholders may be happy although I for one am - could offer some futher short-term profit potential.
On the topic of blocking,... Since you brought it up... Yahoo really needs to upgrade the ignore feature to include all aliases a user has. Otherwise crapola from he likes of you and crazies like you keeps seeping through.the cracks.
I could ask you the same thing, but I won't cause it'll just mean more babbling. You're really pathetic.
@Russia doesn't have the advantage of threatening Europe with gas like they did with Ukraine. You know, using energy as a weapon. .
They don't? Why do you think that? It's not like the EU can quickly get natgas to meet their needs from anywhere else. And nothing really prevents Russia from taking a financial hit and stopping the flow to the EU. I'd say they have a perfect energy weapon... IF they choose to use it and accpet the consequences..
Obama stated on numerous occasions that he would only approve KXL if the State Dept. issued a report that indicated the pipeline would not increase GHG emissions. The State Dept already confirmed as much when they issued their preliminary report. Now with Nebraska onboard, the State Dept will issue a final report that repeats their earlier assessment.
It is obvious from his comments in recent weeks that Obama wants to block the project. And so now finally Obama will have to either approve the project and maintain his credibility and respect or reveal himself to be the two-faced liar that he really is.
Any bid will only be made public when a formal offer is received. As far a 1st auction round ending today, I never saw any report stating this.
What about Konica Minolta? Their lighting fab should be running production by now but I haven't seen any news.
@@@@Konica Minolta still on track to start flexible OLED lighting production in the fall Konica Minolta Flexible OLED OLED lighting OLED production Roll-to-roll In March 2014 Konica Minolta announced that it is starting to construct a R2R flexible OLED lighting fab with plans to start production in the fall of 2014. The company now updates that the equipment is now running, and first panel samples are being produced. KM still aims to start shipping commercial products in the fall.
Next up the State Dept. then the ball gets thrown fast at Obama... no more ducking Mr. President
@@@@Nebraska Supreme Court backs Keystone XL pipeline route Reuters 20 minutes ago WASHINGTON, Jan 9 (Reuters) - The Nebraska Supreme Court on Friday reversed a lower court that had blocked a route for the controversial Keystone XL pipeline. The decision appeared to boost TransCanada Corp and its claim to build a crude oil pipeline across the state by leaving in place earlier legislation that blessed a pipeline route.
AYI is the stock to own in the LED space, not CREE. I hate to admit it, but that #$%$ jcreamer guy who used to post here was right

You really have the nerve to post this crapola? Jeezuz... How about instead you explain how this is any different from the way your glorious US government subsidizes their massive Mil-Aero / Defense private sector you douchebags. Keep your slimeball 'analysis' to yourselves you fukkers.
@@@@@OTTAWA—Canada contributed 350 million Canadian dollars (US$296 million) to the development of Bombardier Inc. ’s CSeries because it concluded the project would be at risk without government backing, according to a 2013 government evaluation. That evaluation found that without that C$350 million pledge by Ottawa for the CSeries plan unveiled by Bombardier in 2008, there was a risk the project “would not have proceeded.” Ottawa’s financing, the government analysis added, helped contribute toward technology gains that would lead to lower fuel consumption. Canada is among a handful of countries that pledge cash toward the aerospace sector, with the goal of creating and maintaining high-paying jobs. Canada’s 66,000 aerospace employees earn on average 37% more than the average worker, according to officials with Canada’s Industry Department. Ottawa’s unofficial policy of supporting the sector has also been geared toward creating a global star in the industry. Bombardier falls into that category—often cited as one of Canada’s few global manufacturing champions.
