What say you at this hour? I think the pond has risen so high and the promise of some 2 coupon for a ride in 2016. Can a White Knight save us? Oh those quiet days in the winter in the Hodge Podge Lodge it was so peaceful. Now a lot of peed off critters are ticked about a $2 ticket to ride in 2016. The OPTR coupon is supposed to trade on the NASDAQ. I don't know about our ticket, yet. At least KY and THECHANGE101 got washed over the falls. They wouldn't listen that a KABOOMEO was coming, kind of like those folks in Pompei that stayed behind when the smart left on the first quake shake; days before the stubborn were vaporized in the ash flow. I still make money, would have liked a bidding war at some point.
Kitty I was surprised at this low buyout price and given TED's fast tracked, no brainer money potential, thought we should have been close to $19 in a buyout. Pfizer could easily have paid that. Maybe their plan is to eventually buyout Cubist. Stein needed to attend some public auctions to see how this is done. The $2 ticket to ride was confusing and stymied . You buy a company within a said time frame and do not add on another $2 ticket to ride two years later. Short covering alone tomorrow should get you that premium. If share holders voted the outcome would have been different.
Thanx to all critters that participated on this board. We had fun and made money...both of which I'm thankful for.
Beaver - The $2 ticket to ride is very common in a buy-out of a company with future potential.
The last one I participated in was Disney's acquisition of Playdom. Playdom was about to market a new social game and Disney left the current management in place to finish what they started with an incentive to make it successful.
Hey Kitty and Beaver,
I'm a long time pond dweller (starting building my raft in March 2012 and have accumulated a substantial amount since). I'll admit that I looked forward to the board chatter (despite it going south a bit with the recent influx of pond insects) and will miss you guys!
What pond will lure you in next? I like the smaller ponds that havent been infiltrated by too many other critters.
Appreciate all of your constructive posts as well as humor over the past 15+ months and hope to migrate with you.
