    question for dusa1957...

    Part of the recent run-up was clearly manipulation to increase the average stock price pertinent to the acquisition, consequently lowering the number of newly issued shares. But what I don't get about that is that the cost of running it up in those selling into it seems to me to outweigh the savings in shares issued.
