08:31 EDTACTSalix takeout price could be $200 per share, says Leerink
Leerink estimates a takeout valuation for Salix (SLXP) of $200 per share, but says it would start recommending investors take profits above $185. The firm believes a potential deal with Allergan (AGN) would likely include an above-average break-up fee. Leerink thinks a competitive bid could surface, and points out Actavis (ACT) has more overlapping cost structure with Salix than Allergan. Shares of Salix are up 9% to $173.48 in pre-market trading after Wall Street Journal reported the company is in merger talks with Allergan.

The firm views Actavis shares as attractively valued, irrespective of the acquisition chatter. It reiterates an Overweight rating on the stock with a $280 price target.
