    Hopefully the news will be the Pfizer and the shareholders have come to their senses, and will be backing out of the deal to acquire AstraZeneca.

    Hopefully Pfizer and the shareholders have come to their senses and have decided to back out of the acquisition of AstraZeneca. This deal DOES NOT MAKE Scientific Sense, at all. It's just about Taxes, that's all.

    I think you are correct, although I agree with New Jersey.

    I think it could also be related to the results of their new breast cancer drug.

    The deal appears to be dead now but have patience.....PFE will not go away.
    Something will pop up after the 3 month waiting period for AZN.
    PFE has acquired numerous good companies in recent years.
