Big Pharma MERCK & CO in STILL in serious trouble, its happening
As per my previous analysis:
Merck -1.91% & Co seem to be in serious trouble after a ‘Big Pharma -2.86% Bombshell’ where Federal Judge Beth Labson Freeman of San -0.77% Jose finds Merck -1.91% lied in patent trial to both a business partner ( Gilead Sciences Inc -0.41% ) and lied to the court itself, overturns $200 Million verdict ! (Re: hepatitis C Drug). This seems to be now having a negative effect on this stock, as per analysis back on July 16th 2017 and I am expecting this to continue .
LA Times Article here:
Court Document here:
Judge Stated “Merck’s misconduct includes… misusing Pharmasset’s confidential information…, and lying under oath at deposition and trial” – Federal Judge Beth Labson Freeman.
One example of this was “The edvidence examined by Freeman strongly suggests that Merck -1.91% flagrantly manipulated the patent process to gain unfair advantage.” – Michael Hiltzik, LA Times.
“Adding to the temerity of the big drugmaker, it originally sued Gilead for $2 billion before having to settle for $200 million. Now, pending appeal, it won’t get even that much for its patent claims, and its reputation for integrity will carry a value of less than zero.” – Michael Hiltzik, LA Times.
TECHNICALS: (Daily and Weekly Charts)
A has been confirmed and completed as well as breakout from major structure, providing the start of what seems to be an 2 structure in it’s infant stages, after completion of a correction and a failed Wave 5 at the top of the chart, where major resistance is located. This initiated count suggests a long-term for the pharma -2.86% company down to significantly low price that would normally be expected.
Ketchup, Mustard, Water and Mayo EMAs have all been breached by the price action as well as TDI -0.08% showing hints of continued downward movement.
Monthly chart also suggests we are at the start of a Intermediate Wave 1 which does not look good for the pharmaceutical company.
However, that being said, this is a FANTASTIC opportunity to SHORT the absolute crap out of this stock, in my opinion I see quite significant Profit from Shorting this stock on a 3 ~ 6 month term, possibly even longer if the wave count is confirmed as described on my chart. I’m shorting this stock on the breakout of structure, where most likely this will occur on market open with a GAP. In my opinion this will be a huge profit maker as I’m expecting this price action to continue for significantly long period of time.
