hi MT....your fear about the deal not being done, which i share to a degree, makes me wonder if we shouldnt just sell now on the open market. i know we can theoretically get a dollar or so more through the tender offer, but is it worth it?
on the other hand, im inclined to hold longer as Total's offer has to be seen as a huge vote of confidence and I would imagine we will go higher in time, perhaps much higher.
incidentally, i have 2 sets of shares and one of them i have held exactly a year as of yesterday. interesting timing coincidence!
