Decent volume today. Sooo.....do we think Icahn is buying more shares today with his birthday money....OR could ATVI have made a pitch to Z on his vacation and the board is voting on a buyout today?? :) How long does that sort of thing take just curious if anyone has an idea on the relative time when a board votes from when it gets a bid?
Nearly impossible to know, since if it is friendly and a fair price, could happen quickly. Hostile and two sides far apart, well just look back at early 2008 and it could take months to make it public and then more months to wait for it to fall apart.
You didn't have to put the falling apart piece in there homer. By the way Homer you can be one of the old guy muppets that makes fun of the rest of us muppets!haha I'd take a buy out for my b-day it's coming up. I almost feel bad for people that think ttwo short was a good idea. OUCH!!
Put it this way, it will take much longer than you will be able to remain solvent long this overpumped stock. By the time your margin call comes and you have been reduced to shame and debt you will be far from any ability to profit from any type of buyout.
