    • Not sure if I qualify as a fplks but in the interest of trying to spur some debate before the holiday, here goes:
      a.merger approved
      stock goes up short term and long term
      b.merger denied
      stock goes down short term, see c,d,e, and f below
      c.merger denied,gmh spun off at a more opportune time
      stock goes up long term, big time
      d.merger denied,gmh stays under gm
      stock goes up over real long term
      e.merger denied,gmh gets sold to rupert at a premium and stays out of bag-o-bones
      stock goes up long term
      f.merger denied,gmh sold to rupert and is included in bag-o-bones
      all gmh shareholders get screwed as rest of bag-o-bones drags new stock down

      as usual, just MHO

      • I like scenario C. I don't think this merger will go through. The only fear I have is how long it will take for GM to complete a deal with Rupert. That means another year of sitting and waiting. I the meantime, DTV's numbers will continue to fall off and loose even more customers and market share to Echo*. I think the best action would be for GM to do a true spin off of Hughes Electronics without any merging. Any comments?

      • a.merger approved

        (Wrong. This is a grand slam for GMH holders)

        b.merger denied
        stock goes down short term, see c,d,e, and f below
        (Most likely. Odds are now 10 to 1)


        c.merger denied,gmh spun off at a more
        opportune time stock goes up long term, big time
        (Doubtful, Mama needs to fund pension and GMH will have to find a partner soon anyway, as will The Tuna)

        d.merger denied,gmh stays under gm
        stock goes up over real long term
        ( No, a disaster for GMH holders)

        e.merger denied,gmh gets sold to rupert at a premium and stays out of bag-o-bones
        stock goes up long term
        (Could be)

        f.merger denied,gmh sold to rupert and is included in bag-o-bones
        all gmh shareholders get screwed as rest of bag-o-bones drags new stock down

        (The largest carcass out there right now is GMH. Talk about bones. Charlie is picking you guys clean. You wish you had the Dingo's bones.)
