    Yo Ancestry! When will you give us those bid numbers?!

    Will it be before my ancestors inherit my shares?

    • Nathan,

      I agree. I have no interest in "debating", and haven't been.

      What you see as arrogance, I see as rational concern for another human being. It is based on a long period of professional experience. You discount the value of my profession, as is your right to do. I will merely point to the overwhelming body of academic research which shows that investors who retain a dispassionate, qualified financial advisor experience much higher net returns than those who invest on their own. Perhaps you are one of those who beats the odd. If so, I commend you!

      I wish you nothing but the best.

    • Careful! Nathan gets very twitchy when people try to express reasonable concern over what is blatantly obvious to everybody.

    • 1) "Jeez Nathan, your tone sure has taken a turn for the worse lately."

      I disagree with your observation
      I bit my tongue longer than I should have with the know it all.
      He was constantly putting down my trading strategy and baiting me from the start.

      2) I didn't say that I was disappointed with the SP, but I would like to take a profit at least $39 and move on.



      I'm sorry that you seem to see my comments towards him as more negative than his has been.

      I don't think that there is anything to gain on further debate on the differences of trading strategies between me and him.

    • Nathan, I know you don't want to hear this but you exhibit all the signs of someone who should NOT be in the market.

      The board of directors has a fiduciary responsibility to the company. This does NOT mean that they must act on whatever offer comes down the pike.

      Based on what I see with this co's executive management, they will proceed cautiously. My guess is we won't hear anything until next month at the earliest.

      • That has been your opinion.

        I'll decide how I invest my money.

        I prefer to see the SP go up soon, so I can invest in something else that I assume that I can make still more money in.

        You have stated that you don't want the company to sell itself.

        Consider this: I retired from my 30 year job at the age of 49.

        I am not in the market as a hobby.

        My objective is to double my money and then move the funds into safe or guaranteed and/or insured return investments.

        You have stated your opinion about my investment style being "just gambling".

        With manipulation, short selling, high volume electronic trading, etc, for the average retail investor, the stock market is a form of gambling.

        Your opinion has been noted and does not need to be repeated again.

        Thanks for your concerns for my financial health.

      • Newman, I am 99% sure that you don’t know what you are talking about. Your analysis of what the market believes about BBY, ACOM or any name is terribly flawed. I don’t know what school you attended, but suggest you seek a tuition refund or go back and repeat all of your courses again.

        Furthermore, you arrogant and condescending attitude is revolting. Seriously Newman, you are the one should not be in the market, or at the very least, have the decency as to not mislead others.

    • Just relax. These things can take months. Soon after I bought stock in Cost Plus World Market rumors started swirling that Bed Bath and Beyond would buy them - it was over a year before the deal was announced (and by then the stock had increased 100%).
