Summary: Our main result implies the following theorem: Let \(f\) be a transcendental meromorphic function in the complex plane. If \(f\) has finite order \(\rho\), then every asymptotic value of \(f\), except at most \(2 \rho\) of them, is a limit point of critical values of \(f\). We give several applications of this theorem. For example we prove that if \(f\) is a transcendental meromorphic function then \(f'f^n\) with \(n \geq 1\) takes every finite nonzero value infinitely often. This proves a conjecture of Hayman. The proof makes use of the iteration theory of meromorphic functions.
