I have no doubt that they will announce a bad quarter. This is how companies are taken private at a very cheap price. It is in the management's interest to go private. They don't lose on that one financially. It will be taken public again in 2 year and management will receive new stock options. Unlike us ordinary shareholders who will be wiped out. I wish WD would find financing and offer a merger at $18/sh. But $8+ billion is too much money for WD. The only have $2B+ cash.
