who've been spreading buyout rumors for over 30 years now! During the 80's & 90's, middle management kept spreading rumors that companies like Ford were going to buy Pep Boys. Obviously that never happened. That's just a small sample of the small minds of PBY mgmt. This company isn't about to be bought out now or in the near future. PBY has to prove themselves first by producing consistent earnings over the next 4 qtrs. before anyone would even look their way. Anyone pushing the buyout rumors on this board is most likely an employee. Buyer beware!
