This deal is goin through no doubt in my mind if it wasn't we'd know by now. There's no resistance to it unlike recently when T tried to takeover t mobile you knew right away. With this one not even boo. Done deal mark my words
I'm more concerned about what they'll do with the money once they get it.... more RE deals for sure. Stock feels higher and the markets been on a tear. That divy will feel nice in the pocket for sure ,and no doubt it's safe.But my impression from HL is that he doesn't intend to raise it ,and no special that's for sure. He says they intend to increase there buyback to 250 mil...... increased divy would mean more to me...... I think a buyback program for them doesn't mean much for me. They can say it without having to pay it.Besides they have to get their issuance under control at least that seems to be under the scope. Get your issuance under control then think about buybacks.Got to get their profitability up,need to surprise on the upside....next qt would be nice.....they already lowered guidance for q2.....they say the 2nd is more profitable then the 1st give us an upside surprise and give this thing a goose to help get through all this overhead resistance.
