adamb1978: I bought a few more today - a while since I'd previously bought any of my previous three tranches and around the same share price, however its about 3 turns lower current year PE. Without wanting to tempt fate, this feel stupidly cheap at the moment

glasshalfull: I also took a few in the dip below £40. Share price now off (-20%) since January despite strong Q2 results & guidance being raised. Few interesting articles circulating with the undernoted on Seeking Alpha indicating the writer also feels the market reaction unwarranted.

justiceforthemany: 5300p/share? RUMOURED BID FOR SHIRE Evening Standard The City rumour mill was in full flow today as deal-hungry traders suggested drug-maker Shire was back in play. Gossips said some of the biggest drugs firms in Europe and the US have hired advisers ahead of a possible tilt at the Dublin-based company. They added that Shire, fearing lowball bids, had hired defence advisers. Earlier this month, the FTSE 100 company’s chief executive Flemming Ornskov hinted that investors were valuing Shire too low after a 10% fall from the share price this year. He pointed to the healthy pipeline of drugs, including for ADHD and haemophilia, which came as part of the £22 billion acquisition of Baxalta. Shire accepted a £32 billion cash and shares bid in 2014 from US rival AbbVie worth around 5300p per share before a clampdown on tax inversion deals scuppered the takeover. The shares now languish at 4284.5p, up another 63.31p, or 1.5%, today after gaining ground yesterday, valuing the firm at £39 billion. Shire declined to comment on the speculation. http://www.standard.co.uk/business/market-report-chatter-over-bid-for-shire-puts-suitors-in-frame-a3596666.html

philanderer: Shire PLC (ADR) (SHPG) Hit 52-Week Low July 20, 2017 The stock of Shire PLC (ADR) (NASDAQ:SHPG) hit a new 52-week low and has $153.48 target or 4.00 % below today’s $159.87 share price. The 6 months bearish chart indicates high risk for the $47.93 billion company. The 1-year low was reported on Jul, 20 by Barchart.com. If the $153.48 price target is reached, the company will be worth $1.92 billion less. The 52-week low event is an important milestone for every stock because it shows very negative momentum and is time when sellers come in. During such technical setups, fundamental investors usually stay away and are careful buying the stock. HTTPS://finnewsdaily.com/shire-plc-adr-shpg-hit-52-week-low/

steeplejack: Because the decline in share price is NOT stock specific.Its a question of what macro factors are driving all stocks and drug stocks in particular lower.No stock bucks a bear market.

steeplejack: I think that SHP has put itself in a very strong place but the Baxalta bid and the likely backwash of selling resulting from that bid will make the share price pretty choppy for some months.I'm happy to hold if somewhat irritated that I didn't top slice as the stock approached 60 quid.

karateboy: That may explain shp share price drop. With the market cap of 2.5b dollar, it should not have too much impact on shp, if shp decides to buy viroPharma.
