Do you think for one minute if JR knew a buyout was imminent he'd be blabbing about it on the internet? Common sense says he'd keep it to himself and be buying as many shares on the cheap as possible so that he could cash in when the event occurred. After all he is supposedly managing a fund for "clients."
Spreading such a rumor can only be construed as pumping for personal gain. Up to now I've been only poking fun at JR. But now I'd like to be more serious and change my tune....JR is a liar, plain and simple.
