well jimbo I think it is clear I was this deal's biggest cheerleader and best poster to stay calm and weather the storm. todays news says it all. Congrats longs feel free to pat me on the back lol
jim you sound and act vey young. that's okay yuth has some positives lol Bottom line today is up over 3%... you got yer undies in a bunch over nuthin. I have no idea about he ceo because as ive stated many times already this was just a buyout play pure and simple. you sound 'mad' at him. lol
jim you have now lost any credibility you may have had... if you just spout off a made up rumor (by yourself ahem?) then get called on it and have zero then I am so sorry to say but that is a troll. See the conversation here a gentleman nicely laid out all the explanation that may explain your price movement question easily.
Its too bad I had to take out to the 'woodshed' as it were but c'mon time to man up.
re:'the deal rumored to close in a couple weeks'
Huh????? source/link please? what 'rumor' are you talking about that somehow only you know?
If you have zero source we will await your urgent apology.
There are 'back out' penalties both ways ie for both parties. The SEC filings speak for themselves just go to EDGAR or company website for details. I don't understand what you are unsure of consequently. I think we both want the same thing, so in any event...
Long and strong.
I think you are being a little naïve and perhaps on purpose? don't let your feelings cloud reality. I mean seriously do you really think businesses discussing billion dollar deals are so greenhorn they cant see/understand all the public disclosure around this deal and *anticipate* closing thus okay to talk in terms of buying off pieces etc. ?
A word from Johnny Rotten is on order:

A reasonable person might read this Bloomberg article and conclude this signals the underlying deal is ready to rock.
long and strong! IMO only!
Tom. is the abbreviation for Tomorrow.
Long and strong till deal close. best of fortune to all.
Tom. 8/30 is ex div date so today is last day to get in and get div. This is my take on the dates feel free to chime in but 0.36/share is nothing to sneeze at ... 4% annualized n'est-ce pas?
wrong. It's fairly simple and self-evident imo that the increase in spread is directly correlated to the miss on earnings.. This is not that surprising as some feel that ought to increases the risk premium. the volume here is anemic so small moves can widen the spread more than it ought to imo. It's also been previously explained why tiny volume does not allow for big players to come in and close the gap as you suggest ought to be happening if all were blue skies in your world. All of this is no big deal if you are a buy and holder to deal close ie not on margin etc. Also holders will have been paid at least two divs while waiting (.36*2=.$0.72 ). Not a bad yield while waiting. meanwhile the gap has been closing as of late. As one might expect as time marches on to a conclusion.
disclaimer: this is all in my opinion only. This is not a recommendation or advice nor should it nor ought it be construed as advice. I have no special knowledge. do your own due diligence, every person's situation is different. etc. etc.
From the interwebs:
CFIUS is an inter-agency committee of the U.S. government that is authorized to review,
investigate and block any transaction or investment that could result in the control of
any U.S. businesses or assets by a foreign person that **may raise national security
concerns, or involve critical infrastructure**.
Consequently, I belive your post is nothing more than fear mongering due to yoru poreviously mentioned sour grapes ove the sale.
As has been alluded to earlier, why would you assign almost no value to the time value/opportunity cost of money..
ok. but for future ref don't test stuff on me... im far too important and the most influential person, no doubt, in your orbit.
So looks like from anncmnt we have the vote on 7/22 and a 'earnings release' on 7/29 and then... well I think it is fair to guess not long after that the deal gets paid if everything has dotted the I's and crossed the T's eh? To longs that are happy to get paid lets watch it unfold!
repeat: 'in any event it makes me money so end of story for me anyway...'
you assume they could of done better stand-alone but perhaps this is the best possible outcome at this time. who knows hard to say after the fact. in any event it makes me money so end of story for me anyway...
okay vote is July 22nd per filing if all goes well perhaps finalization not too far behind. that's imo but follows how some deals have gone off recently. to my long brethren: it's getting there !! imo
when it's in escrow? What do I win.
