for what? Less than $5/share??? Are you kidding me? And then BX opens for trading a little later at $31/share? What a crock of s____. How do I get a deal like that? The casino is open. The crooks are running the show. The small investor has no chance.
Dude - relax. AIG bought the shares in 1998 for fair market value. That is what Blackstone was worth back then, something like a grand total of $2Billion. The firm has grown immensely during the past 13 14 years.
