No. Hov will never be bought out. They would loose their tax loss caryforward which is their primary asset in an exchange. Also, nodoby would buy out an insolvent home building company that owes much more than the land that they own. They would be better off just going out and buying $800 million in land than paying the current market cap. Buying Hov is like buying negative half a billion for $800 million. Dumb. Thats why the company isn't investible and as soon as the chart pattern changes it will fall back to $4 i think.
