Let's face it. We ALL don't know when exactly the announcement is going to happen - probably they don't know themselves. Certainly something will happen from now to the 28th.
What I noticed, it's awfully quiet compared to the hype we can see with Dell. I personally interpret it as positive that a deal is going to happen, since they don't want a similar disaster like the one in December. Also, from a PR point of view, I wouldn't announce anything on the weekend of Superbowl - not really good publicity considering how important that event is for BestBuy with a good ad on TV.
Schulze is serious and committed, but it might be a tight one. He is an excellent tactition as you can read up on the NYT article which is also a good reminder why we are all here:
"What the Sound and Fury Over Best Buy May Signify"
So, let's all sit tight (including shorts) and wait, shall we? I'll be over soon ;)
If it was not happening, you would see the large money taking positions, while paying for ads saying it all but a sure thing.
Right now, word is that its not happening and the stock has risen from 11 to 16, all ads saying it's not likely to happen.
