beckers2008: Montyhedge, I repeat... You always spout on the AZN BB when the share price is taking a turn for the worse, that's why I got emotional, certainly not losing money on AZN! Leave this BB and stick to the BB's that you have holdings, if you have any?

trekker60: I go along with those who have previously suggested that while the vaccine is hopefully going to be hugely important in terms of saving lives and helping to substantially reduce the impact of the pandemic, it ultimately going to have only a limited impact on AZN's overall profitability (due to the costs involved and tight margins). So I also agree that it is likely that the proposed Alexion deal is the main drag on the share price at the moment.
thaiger: Share price down due to acquisition of Alexon at too high a price and some analysts said AZN might have to pay more to clinch the deal!??!!
triple witcher: Interesting reaction in the share price to this news, don't think it's a case of sell the news, however where is the next catalyst? Agreement for use of the vaccine in the US ? According to the CEO the vaccine will be shipped either today or tomorrow. This is great news for AZN so is the market once again focusing on its proposed purchase of Alexion which was the main driver of pushing down the share price ? Thoughts anybody ?
buywell3: AZN threw quite a lot of news at the markets over the last couple of days imo to try to keep the share price at levels that helped the bid for Alexion buywell wonders how much more positive newsflow azn has left in the locker that can now counteract market sentiment buywell is still of the opinion that investors in the USA will have to come to terms with reality of the Global Downturn taking place and Covid-19 continuance Stimulus packages forever otherwise in a Covid-19 endemic Other actions needed see BUY Mass Testing has caused Politicians to NOT carry out National Lockdowns as it has fudged the issue with false hopes as has masks and track and trace Lack of National Lockdowns of at least 8 weeks duration or better still 12 weeks Has caused the worldwide mess we are now in ---- and getting worse buy the day Germany is locking down till Jan 10th ie not enough like Holland and the Czech Republic Italy will act later this week or else go into meltdown
essentialinvestor: Unfortunately the vaccine hype train propelled AZN past £100 a share, at that price it was well ahead of fundamentals. And I'm not sure what people find difficult in understanding when AZN say...we will supply our vaccine at cost. COVID was never going to be goldmine financially. It buys some goodwill and may help with other contacts or future research. Yes AZN may be able to supply this at profit at some point, however we could have 10-15 plus competing vaccines by then. And just take a look at GSK, one of the largest vaccine makers globally, their share price moribund for 2 decades.
steeplejack: You can never be sure with the markets.There’s a number of factors including how sterling behaves in the next few days on the latest Brexit moves.On the perceived ‘negative̵7; side acquiring Alexion will make AZN pretty immune to takeover so the “Pfizer bid factor” will be a thing of the past.It is already really.The level of debt which the group is taking on will be of concern and the prospect that Alexion shareholders might decide to sell the AZN shares they receive albeit those concerns are nine months away when the deal completes.Really,it’s a question of whether you trust the managements judgement.If the market considers that the AZNs assumption of a 10% earnings accretive deal over a three year period to be erroneous,the shares will fall by perhaps £5 but if they accept the board’s rationale,the price will react favourably.The Alexion share price has been dull of late suggesting the market had not got wind of AZNs intentions but I suspect,ever since the Gilead discussions,the prospect of AZN making a corporate move has been anticipated.Whether a move of this description was ‘discounted217; ,we’ll find out tomorrow.If you don’t trust the board to make a good acquisition,then you shouldn’t be in the shares,it’s as simple as that.
steeplejack: "Much of the public attention that AstraZeneca has received recently has surrounded its Covid-19 vaccine candidate, but it is unlikely to be a significant part of company sales for a long time. Alexion is far more material. AstraZeneca expects the deal to increase earnings per share by at least 10% over the next three years. The company also said that the acquisition "supports" its "progressive dividend policy," signaling a higher payout eventually."The AZN price is likely to go up.The deal would be earnings accretive and even if a third party gate crashes the party,there's a break fee of over a billion that could come Astra's way..
netcurtains: OXB up - so the market is probably impressed but some of the good news probably already factored into AZN price?
