Go look at the Edgar for linn and you will see that Linn is adding something to the LNCO shares being given to the BRY holders.
That is the reason for the pop in line and lnco.
The deal is viable again even though the 1.25 shares of lnco for each bry is a loss for bry holders.
I tried to post the link but yahoo killed the post.
who cares even if they up the ante to 1 1/2 shares , get bry, just think of the pop when the shorts are squeezed.. plus, even tho the divy may not be increased by addl dilution, coverage will be assured Besides I would dump the increase just to screw the shorts and Barrons
