Ya', the USG unloading its shares, a compromise on the Bush Tax breaks, strides towards normalized earnings, enourmous DTA's, and expected buyback/dividends had nothing to do with the upward price action of C? It was all Sarah, Sarah, SARAH! Is that the sort of mumbo-jumbo that they taught you back in vo-tech school? (rotflmao) As I've said before, you really need to get an objective educaiton. Ah, and opposed to what you were probably taught, as was shown in the movie, "The Water Boy", no alligators aren't mean, because they have so many teeth and no tooth brush, like your mammy probably said. Get a clue. Then again, hopefully you've been smart enough to buy C, ever since the USG got invested. Then, maybe you can eventually afford that fancy, real university education, in the bright lights of the big city, woo-hooo!
