...how many times the media has been wrong on this never-ending saga? Wasn't too long ago that a story was published that the bid was coming the very next day. The infamous Thursday/Friday whipsaw. lol. Might this be true? Who knows. Until something is officially announced, I wouldn't put too much faith in anything the media writes.
If "news" means Schulze is not going to come back with BO, that means BBY is coming with much better than expected results for the Q4. Schulze would lose lot of money in any other outcome, which I doubt will happen (because he is not dumb). I also seriously doubt he couldn't get financing (if he tried at the first place). Look at DELL, they were much worse investment. Not to mention SVU and similar.
