haha, well chrrist, how long does it take to figure out how to carve up IDCC...?...I know it's more complicated than Nortel since it's a functioning business, but they've had 25 business days, that's 200 HOURS to decide.
The week before Thanksgiving will be 8 weeks or 40 business days since the 1st round ended, I think that's plenty of time. If consortiums don't form till Nov 18th, there needs to be positive news that leaks out in the next 3 weeks to drive the stock up...we've had all the bad leaks come out as possible, and a downgrade the day after earnings to top it off, and it looks like the sale is still in progress, so I'd like to think the next leak is positive...

That's a strange conclusion to have reached. If consortia don't form by a particular date perhaps it's because they are never going to form. Do you ever consider the possibility that you might just be wrong about the interest in IDCC? AS DealReporter put it citing sources close to the process: "interest in a buyout of IDCC is waning."
