Yes, this time is "different" because they say they have actual bids on the table, and this suggests that some kind of a "deal" will be announced in either days or weeks, or at least by the time of the next eps report in May. But let's not get too excited quote yet. Today's leap of five points was encouraging on timing, but not yet on price. We are still not yet out of the low 70s, Until we move significantly higher the pps is not signaling that the deal will be worth over $100 pps--let alone anything over 200. We have been at this level many many times before, so hold the champagne corks. Remember as well the many times we have been disappointed. This stock has a well earned rep as a heart breaker on both sides of the bet.
But at least it is not a boring stock and always gives me a good reason to get up in the morning!
