No rules broken, deal goes through.
Tax experts reviewed Treasury new guidelines and saw nothing standing in its way to prevent merger.
What can he say...it is un American and must be disallowed?
Clinton to ask Congress pass new rules and make it retroactive?
PFE won't repeat ABBV's cancel merger of Shire purchase because of Treasury and Obama's scolding.
AGN now trading 310 and the wait 6 to 9 months before the deal to close 363 to 380.
Depends on PFE share price, more if PFE goes higher and/or lower.
There will be roadblocks to block the deal, however, all issues resolved.
Many wondering why AGN not trading at 335-350 now...whatever.
Sit and wait for a 20% return appears too good to be true.
time-value of money as it takes months before transaction goes through.
In other words ARG will approach 143 near completion of deal, if no hitches.
ARG if no other bids, won't go over 143
This is just the beginning of Saunder's legacy.
Once the merger finally consumed in 2016, more deals as Saunders takes over.
This is his vision...big get bigger.
PFE can now celebrate - great company but stock price has been so-so appreciation over the years.
Friendly deal compared to how VRX ways of doing things.
Looking back if Actavis wasn't the white knight for the Botox maker Allergan, this merger would never have happened.
We were told the deal takes 6 to 9 months to complete.
The bad news is bad tuna will pollute the message board for this length of time.
AGN gets 11.3 PFE share which should be worth north over 380; assuming PFE stays in range 32-35.
Many will try to block the merger, but every angle looked at and will pass the test of time.
Not even Clinton or other politicians will succeed.
so many negative news on CMG and stock price hasn't tanked ---yet.
Just a 12% decline today, no 20% to 50% nose dive.
Give credit to the market maker stepping in.
Seeking Alpha has an article out on AGN PFE merger...google that one.
There is a breakup fee of $4.5B if merger doesn't go through.
Looks like a done deal regardless of Treasury threat.
Don't believe another big pharma company will step in and make waves to the deal. Won't be VRX.
First VRX must go below 70...how long will it take - give it 2 or 3 more days.
One day VRX will spike up $5 to $10 to scare many to short cover.
Yeah, with no new news coming out VRX still goes lower.
Treasury sticking their nose in this merger trying to change the rules so inversion does not take place;
Probably not up 60 tomorrow, just 30-50.
IMO PFE already anticipated treasury new rules and will counter with CPA tax experts.
Tuna can go to VRX board and make waves on the long side (lol)
What is the target price you're looking to sell at - 350?
Will be of great interest what kind of guidelines Lew coming out with to make the merger go away.
That's what the fear is currently and why AGN trades lower.
Read won't be in that position for very long; my guess no longer than a year before sailing into the sunset and enjoying his 2nd career in retirement.
Then Saunders takes over...PFE/AGN will be in good hands if his past history is any guide to success.
Saunders has more visions as the big will get bigger. All his deals are on friendly and not hostile.
His purchase of Forest Labs was the clincher and old AGN deal away from VRX.
That makes AGN worth $380, however, you won't see AGN rise that high.
More likely only up $30 with some complaining AGN worth north of $400.
Many wondering how much cash will be thrown into the pot - $10 to $40 per share for just 10%.
I read some of his stuff and sounds more like paper trade losses than the real thing.
Nothing specific with numbers and dates...someone who gets paid just to post (troll)
eps report did not move stock price higher but lower.
Wall St. waiting for GILD next purchase and whether a good fit (how much longer the wait?)
only then will GILD move higher over 120.
Therefore, will the purchased company be a name brand like BMY or AMGN or some unknown value-discovery drug waiting for approval like the one they bought previously.
Otherwise GILD dividend supporting stock to stay above 100 (yawn)
Depends at what price you bought VRX.
For those buying VRX over 200, that's too long a wait to break even.
I give it a 10% chance of VRX over 200 a year from now.
You can go to PowerShares webpage to get the details.
Under Yahoo Finance Left Hand Side, under Holdings will give you the top 10.
Not bad 5%+ and fund price held steady vs Junk Bonds.
Only question is how long can this last with interest rates going higher in 2016.
Not many times pgx beats the S&P500 and savings in the bank earning less than 0.25% interest.
There is no dead-cat bounce trading VRX.
Ackman now trying to lump Buffet as criminal for Coke stock causing obesity. Like that's the only liquid all drinks day in and day out. Bad comparison.
VRX on a slow death until they pull the plug.
Give it to the end of 12/31/15 for this to happen.
and how high will will VRX go before another reversal.
Maybe 80 then back down to under 70.
Can you wish VRX to go over 100 to 150 then 200?
1% chance this will happen, unless a reverse stock split.
Debt will crush VRX; can't buy companies with low stock price.
Game, set, match over.
