I think that's the point ... in 2008 the forecast was positive, so multiples were high. REALITY was somewhat different. In 2012 the forecast is negative, so multiples are low. REALITY .. will be .. .. . different ?
Hmmm let me guess, Your Short and more than likely one of those that shorted @ $12 or a little lower Hoping, Praying it goes down so you can get out before the Buyout announcement. Keep Praying Wannabee, Keep Praying LOL Time is not on your side the dividend is about to hit along with the fact that Schulze has about 2 weeks to get his offer in, and I really don't think he is going to take it to the wire. :0}
I think Private Equity wants to take it at lower price and media is helping them. Other groups of take over should jump in or maybe no need to sell the company. Leaving alone without buyout, the price should have been higher than current price.
