    MARKET REPORT: Three international pharma groups including US giant Eli Lilly make 'friendly approaches' for Ariad

    Ever since Ariad Pharmaceuticals’ Ponatinib treatment for leukemia was given the green light by American regulator, the FDA, industry majors have been sniffing around. As its shares changed hands at $6.50, valuing the Massachusetts-based company at around £800m, dealers heard whispers from across the Pond that at least three international pharma groups including US giant Eli Lilly have made ‘friendly approaches’ to the Ariad board and are prepared to pay up to $20 a share in cash to gain control.

    Agreed, a buyout it is NOT needed, and would be a disaster to those who held positions, before the FDA announcement.
    Fortunate for me I'm not one of those, but I certainly understand those that would not be happy.
    One more thing, I agree Sierra is suspect, and that's being nice.

    No, I'm long since the Europe decision, and I agree that the source is suspect.
    Once again " The source IS suspect!!"

    I don't think ARIAD needs a buyout to go higher, as it will do fine on it's own.
    I posted the source, and said " I don't know if it's accurate", but a rumor like this is all that's needed to drive the price higher in the short term, and that is OK by me, since I am long since $3.25.
    Many buy the rumor and sell the news, whether the news turns out to be TRUE or FALSE.

    I don't know if it's accurate but he's not lying.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • brownkeith318 by brownkeith318 Oct 26, 2013 11:30 AM Flag

    The company has a market cap of $4.65 billion and reports the next quarter on November 6, 2013. With this in mind, we value SolarCity Corporation at $75.00 by year-end of 2013 and $105.00 by June 1, 2014, an increase of 75% from current levels.
    We strongly feel that this company has the potential to see huge upside over the next year and a half, as the company takes advantage of new market opportunities and continues to drive growth in its existing businesses.

    IBD eight week rule

    I Read that article, but it also specifies taking 10% profit if it pulls back that far.

    "The most serious challenge to this eight-week hold rule is the round-trip rule:
    Don't let a double-digit gain cycle into a loss. Is your eight-week-hold-rule stock turning into a loser after rising more than 10%? Sell.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
