Going out on a limb...No NJ announcement this week
Of course, I hope I'm wrong, but I just have to think that if there was even a whiff of this in the air, that we wouldn't be where we are now.
Some on this board will freak out if this comes true, but I actually think it's more in line with the way MP looks at things. He doesn't want to be Full Tilt Poker. He wants to be the social gaming network with gambling if you want it. This unfortunately will take some time, so all the "$20 per share by Christmas" people are going to be disappointed.
I actually hope I'm wrong, as my portfolio looks pretty bad right now. I just think we'll have to ride this out for a bit.
I would expect the announcement would be made on Sunday, or Monday morning. No reason to announce on Friday and lose the momentum of the PPS climbing going into the weekend. Bad news on Fridays, Good News on Mondays. Patience is key here.
Well, here we are and still no announcement. There are a couple of days to go, so we could still hear something, but I think it would be strange to release the news over the weekend. It's also possible that a deal has already been made and won't be announced until later. Either way, I don't think we'll get any news this week.
I don't think so. I think Doerr, Gordon, et al have seen that RMG however you can come by it is the future for this company. MP just wants to create a behemoth and I know he trusts Doerr's and Gordon's instincts. I'm not saying that there will necessarily be an announcement about NJ this week, but that the future path is clear to the big boys in charge.
