not only a small list but same one for many years! i have a stock ( one of the top life ins. cos.) & they have been rumored to be bought out for 35 yrs. & i hope it never happens! 25 out of 25 times i made money on it! m.m. should of kept her mouth shut at this early stage! she gave signals that nobody should expect any revenue increase for 2013 ( nice to hear) which lowered the positives to asset sales,buy out or buy backs! i question also what part of the money (set aside) previously for actual buybacks aren't being used for companies acquired & for the high cost for her special employees hired! i have MANY cos. with buy backs & their figures are very close when figuring out the diff. from 2011 to 2012 (when considering the shares bought during 2012) but i don't come up with yahoo figures.
