Who did you hear this from? And what would they say? "We have received 3 bids"? Why would that make this stock rise? The only news that will move this is the actual announcement. Otherwise the shorts own this until then.
Bjorn, Please do not post such specific bullish comments unless you are certain they will occur. I own many thousands of shares and do believe that IOC will ultimately be much higher, but I do not post what appears to be made up statements. There are numerous positive facts including an impending sale of Elk and Antelope.
