When contacted by Benzinga, a Perrigo spokesperson declined comment on the chatter.
Numerous analysts showed skepticism of the rumor. ISI implied doubtfulness on the report, and Raymond James said "[W]e continue to harbor skepticism around the possibility of any face saving bid for Perrigo."
After a lower open, it could not come close to Tuesday's close ($108.13), peaking at $106.18 before resuming its move lower. At this time, it is attempting to find support in the area of Monday's close ($99.06), as the current low stands at $99.20.
