wdrone, you seem all hopped up for the report... can't blame you, i too am overweighted but pretending not too care [entry points all over the map, but nothing over 26]. to add to your own thoughts, the downside price should be of little concern if one is a long-term proponent, not fettered by potential margin calls or the swap syndrome and aware of the volatile nature of this specific stock -- hell, i'd think that continued market weakness coupled with increasing fundamental strength would only attract potential suitors. i really don't want to see a take out, but rumors have a tendency to attract more attention, and that (w/the exception of the appearence of mo-mo players) is a positive -- might force the stock to trade up to a more sensible valuation... and stay there. i know i tossed out some conspiracy theories earlier, but my own research and #s crunching point to a positive report -- i was just a little wary of the explanation for the delay. typing is better than twiddlin' thumbs or starin' at a wall. have a good weekend.
