    "Merck speeding up layoffs of many US employees." Big red flag for Merck (MRK). Companies layoff workers because of lack of demand.

      : Laying off workers saves $$,and increases efficiency & productivity. Make the remaining ones sweat with the threat of more layoffs, Bullish.

      : True, but eventually it will hurt the company. Look at MCD after it announced hiring 50,000 workers.
