Does anybody out there think DDE could be a takeover candidate in light of the Harrah's takeover of Caeasar's Entertainment? Caeasar's has the management contract for the DDE slot casino, and I know Harrah's has said in the past it has been considering acquiring racinos. I know DDE has been slipping in light of PA slots, but this may be a very shortsighted reaction. Any thoughts?
If there is a "takeout" i'm sure it won't be at much of a premium. The whole industry has gotten clobbered. The best thing is to stick it out. (maybe mid 2009 for a real turnaround). The casinos in A.C. seem to be somewhat busy based on what I have experienced.
