    buyout

    If I am correct, I believe there will be a buyout offer or similar announcement this week. It won't be$18-20 like some poster's are suggesting. I believe it will more likely be $14.55-$14.75, which will be disappointing to many, including myself......

    Sentiment: Hold

    • Unfortunately, I don't think you will get anywhere close to $14+ per share. Having lived through the Talbots buyout process with Sycamore, Sycamore will try to pick up ARO on the cheap. Sycamore will wait for the next poor earnings report to push the stock down and management's gets pushed back further into a corner due to the upcoming challenging Christmas season. My guess is maybe $12 if shareholders are very lucky.

    • Its a far cry from the $40 that (mis)management passed up in 2010, and ran off to Barclays in order to "protect" us (or their jobs??) from that "hostile" takeover. We can only dream of that price now... Having said that, I have traded this and taken my profits when I got them. I agree with the price range you've come up with, although I think a buyout offer may be a little longer in the works. However, there are a lotta shorts on this stock, so if a buyout offer does come, you may well more from the squeeze, unless that's whats been going on recently. Also, there are a few investment vehicles with an interest here - any first offer received may very well not be the last...
