    Money maker or Investment Bankers Dream

    I read the ACI announcement and a couple of questions came to mind ---

    Why the huge dilution?
    Shares outstanding nearly doubled, but earnings did not keep pace... I'm new to this co., so I'm short on history... did ACI pay too much for assets/sales/earnings?

    Why no discussion on how the $1B ARCO deal will be financed?
    And, will the earnings be accretive?

    I usually like to know how much a resource company is paying for probable reserves, revenues, earnings. Anyone know how these figures are trending?

    Is this stock counting on utility growth to make up for expensive acquisitions?

    Sorry for all the questions... I'll eventually research this unless some smart chap already has all the answers. BTW, I own it!
