The share price is set for about 30% of Abbotts holdings. If they decide to sell more the selling price will be determined by the market and if the sale is directly to TEVA they will need to pay a premium. Abbott people are not idiots.
I guess no other drug company in the world uses ingredients from China. Correct, WRONG. In fact many of the worlds generic drug makers buy ingredients from India and they buy them from a Mylan subsidiary. LOL. Many generic company's do this. SURPISE.
Well, I am a long term holder in the stock and I am not happy about it. Two things to consider however, the Mylan management team does get paid based on stock so they are did give them some compensation for the large amound of tax. Whether that is fair or not I'm not sure. The good news is that in a year from now the stock will most likely be above $70 per share. and the following possibley $80. What then?
