if GS analysts are correct, i/o prices in 2015 will spell CLF's doom. they can not operate with that type pricing period, and the fools can't shed enough debt quick enough. it's the old story of #$%$ management and strategy and when the market they are in corrects itself, they are d-e-a-d. it's happening in retail and tech as well.
buyout? never. if anyone is reading, RIO is shopping their canadian i/o. who the f would buy CLF's high priced canadian disaster instead of RIO's? no-one except CLF:)
