I understand your frustration, but 2 days ago this was $2.70 and in a few weeks you can get $4 per share or near that because it is going to rise from arbitrageurs. Then you either think the new company is worth keeping or you move onto something other. On the bright side, with the upcoming debt troube and potentia stock market probems, you have your $4 per share. Remember, before a buyout, SVU went to $1.50. who knows where we'd be today without the buyout. For me, I keep buying under $3.50 because its free money!! peope are crazy to get rid of their shares at this price.
