All longs are sorry that "niederauer" ever came to nyse just like former "ceo john thain" from goldman who bought euronext for $10 billion on his watch at nyse, both were goldman sachs graduates like corzine that bankrucpted mf global, shareholders lost 100% of their investment in shares. I believe "niederauer" is trying ti tie "corzine " record on losing a 100% of nyse shaqreholdeer value, which is down over 70% since coming to nyse 4/2007 @ $93.60 now $24.61??? !
1- No one will make a "bid" for NYX 2- If they did , the Govt wouldnt allow it, either foreign or domestic. Did you not see how the failed deal was termed a "merger?" Did you not see what happened when NASDAQ made a bid? Did you not see all the nationalism that came out when DB got involved. Best you can hope for is another disguised "merger of equals" in which nobody really makes money. Not a basher; long the stock but just telling it like it is.
1. As poster above pointed out, the U.S. authorities did not object to a Deutsche Boerse-NYSE deal. 2. Chinese authorities might actually encourage a merger of a Chinese exchange with a Western exchange (see, for example, Justin Raimondo's discussion of Chinese ruling elites' attempts to ingratiate themselves with Western ruling elites at AntiWar.com) 3. Niederauer needs to make a dramatic recovery (in my opinion) from the DB-NYSE failure.
