Thread: I would have guessed that while PFE|
was trading 50% higher than it is now, we
would have seen a few aquisitions go off--for
a while a number of biotech enthusiasts here
on SI have thought it was only a matter of time
before big pharma, with inflated stocks, went
cherry picking. And yet the deals have been slow
to develop--it is almost as if management at these
multi billion dollar pharmacutical companies is
blind to the incredible values in small cap biotech
companies. Or they prefer to try and squash the
little R&D platform companies just for kicks.
Does anybody on the thread have opinion on this
particular issue: I have 1000 shares of a company
called Sibia Neurosciences, perhaps you've heard of it?
I did a keyword search here and nothing came up, odd.
SIBIA Neurosciences, Inc. Announces Filing of Counterclaim
Against Pfizer Inc. for Patent Infringement
then read this
But I guess the lawyers really run the show...
Okay, part two of tonight's post: Anybody know if this
place is occupied yet?--The Pfizer Cambridge Discovery
Technology Center, here is a photo:
Just curious, Cambridge is certainly a real hot
spot for biotechnology.
It's been a little disappointing to see the big pharma
companies stocks melt down...I had always hoped a little
bit of that money would slosh into the biotechs, what
a shame so few deals went off as things were peaking
out. The internuts did a lot better with this--you have
to do the deals when you have all that extra fluff in
the marketcap right?
Does Pfizer really have a billion shares outstanding,
that just blows my mind, a 100 Billion dollar company,
and that's after 50B evaporated.
Well, starting to ramble: I guess I have one other
question for you folks--are good things coming out
which will be better than the SSRI Zoloft, I have
heard of a few interesting things--sibutramine, I
think that one if from Sepracor (BASF's Meridia),
obviously Prozac II could be interesting, but that
is a few years away as well. Anyway, I am mainly just
rooting around looking for whatever the latest is
for OCD, but never really come up with much.
I guess when you go to the Pfizer website and see
that couple walking lovingly on the beach because
that male oldster can get it up, well, I know what
sells. Meanwhile, new drugs for serious mental
conditions seem not to get much attention. Anyway,
if anybody has knows of any anecdotal miracles with
using drugs to treat OCD, feel free to PM me, I'd
rather not go into the specifics on this public
thread, but let me just say that I am not impressed
