    • LOL. learn the business model of bx. They only earn 20% of profits. BX does not own HLT the people they invest money for do. Try bx made less then .30 for investors today which was already priced into the stock month ago (even more was priced in then the .30) but don't forget to subtract bonuses and expenses. Shareholders will be left with a penney if that. Your just another bag holding long. Down further from here plenty of room to fall.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

        How about this article excerpt posted on businessweek site today:

        Title: Hilton Pays Out Huge for Its Private Equity Owner

        "Blackstone Group (BX), which bought the company in October 2007, booked a paper profit of $8.5 billion from the IPO, based on the $6.5 billion that the firm and its partners have invested in Hilton, as Bloomberg News reported. That makes the Hilton investment the second-best returning play for a private equity firm, surpassed only by the $10.1 billion that Apollo Global Management (APO) booked last year from its sale of LyondellBasell Industries (LYB), according to Bloomberg data. At $22 per share, Hilton would become the top-returning private equity investment."

        Plenty of similar articles to be found. You're such a liar. I'm sure mommy is quite proud.
