She's right you know. You feel jipped like I do though because it was playing up around $10 until the three day period just before the announcement when it dropped 7% to around $9.30. So when it popped to 11+, you felt like you really only got a 15% (or so) premium. I feel like I've seen that kind of drop just prior to a buyout many times. Conspiracy theorists scream "manipulation". I don't know. You have to think of the buyout as a one-time re-baselining of the share price to reflect the share exchange rate. This bump was about $2 so if you subtract that from today's closing price, you see the PVX shares would only be about $9.53 in the current market if there was no buyout.
I know a saying too. "It's better to marry someone stupid and nice than someone smart and grumpy." Sorry, I'm not available, and I wouldn't have you.
Anyway, it's looking much better today. My point with my stupid comments was that PVX would have probably been around $11 in this market even without a buyout. Pembina looks to be getting a good deal. When something goes down on a good deal, it presents an opportunity. And I'm doing just fine on that stupid battery company too even without a buyout.
