I guess TheDonald lost his boxing gloves.
@Boxing promoter Bob Arum offers $20M for Trump-Sanders debate Bob Arum’s Top Rank Promotions has offered to promote a proposed Donald Trump vs. Bernie Sanders debate, pledging to donate the proceeds, a minimum of $20 million, to charity. “It’s the debate of the century between two of the top pound-for-pound politicians in the country — Mr. Trump, the Republican Party’s presumptive nominee and Senator Sanders, the Democratic candidate,” Mr. Arum said in a press release. “We have two contenders ready, willing and able to go mano a mano over the most important issues facing the United States. And I am ready to promote it.”
Hmm looks like Mr. Trump not willing to take up the challenge after all
@Donald Trump now has no reason left to back out of a potential Bernie Sanders / Donald Trump debate in California. Tech industry investment firm Traction and Scale (T&S) wants to host the Sanders / Trump debate, and is willing to donate Donald Trump’s ransom of $10 million to charity in return. Trump, who this week secured the delegates necessary to clinch the Republican presidential nomination, told late night host Jimmy Kimmel he’d be willing to debate Sanders in California if a large sum of money was raised for charity. The billionaire real estate magnate stood by that statement at a press conference in North Dakota upon officially securing his party’s nomination, saying Sanders was a “dream” debate opponent, and that he would debate the Vermont senator in the Golden State should $10-15 million be raised for women’s health. Sen. Sanders has pounced on the opportunity, calling for the debate to be held in “the biggest stadium possible.” In addition to Hecker, boxing legend and Top Rank CEO Bob Arum also offered to promote a Sanders / Trump debate on pay-per-view, pledging that at least $20 million would be donated to a charity of the candidates’ choosing, with moderators agreed upon by the candidates.
I would not even think about it until OLED hits GS magic number of 75. There is no doubt it is overpriced based on the FY16 growth forecast by the company but even at 75 I'd be reticent to fight the momentum in play now.
yeah I know. still, those who like to talk on cellphones a lot now have reason to think twice. it always seemed common sense to me that sticking that phone beside your head had to have some associated risk. now it's finally been proven.
Bluetooth output power is way lower. Per wikipedia it's down at the 1-5mW range vs.100-2000mW range of cellphones, so I think you're okay. Apparently, only male rats were adversely impacted. Regardless, the FCC will have to take the results into consideration.
@It found the cancer association appeared in male rats, and didn’t find similar results in female rats. It’s not clear how the results may impact the government’s cellphone safety recommendations. The Federal Communications Commission, which administers safety guidelines for U.S. cellphone use, has been briefed on the findings. “Scientific evidence always informs FCC rules on this matter,” an FCC spokesman said. “We will continue to follow all recommendations from federal health and safety experts including whether the FCC should modify its current policies and RF exposure limits.”
They will have to do separate studies on rats texting or driving and talking hands free to quantify the risks further I suppose.
Hear that rats? Stop walking around with that iphoney permanently glued to your heads.
On a related note... why is the number of cancer research funding drives growing so fast? IT seems everywhere I look now there's a group raising money for cancer research these days. Big pharma already injects huge amounts of money into this sector.
@Cellphone-cancer link found in rats - A major U.S. government study on rats has found a link between cellphones and cancer. It's a potentially huge development in the space, but will something like this actually decrease our massive use of mobile phones?
There it is... straight from the other horse's mouth. To paraphrase, TEX was being to greedy. A 50%+ premium was apparently not good enough for them. TEX failed their fiduciary duty to shareholders.
@"Following negotiations, Zoomlion has concluded that Terex's expectations on the valuation do not adequately reflect the impact of the sale of the MHPS segment," Zoomlion said in a statement that elaborated on its move.
Really, the price driver going forward is the cost savings from the merger (consolidation of operations and lower income tax rates) and organic growth of the new larger company.
This was my thought initially, but not so sure now. Maybe you can clarify how this works. The way I see it is: The arbs shorted SHPG and bought BXLT. So they borrowed SHPG shares from brokers and sold them. Now when the deal closes they will receive SHPG shares. Can't they just deliver those shares back to the brokers to close out their short SHPG position? In essence they do not have to actually buy any SHPG shares on the open market to cover that position... those shares are delivered from conversion of their BXLT shares to cash plus SHPG. There is not any buying of SHPG on the open market to close out the short. So that is not really a driver of SHPG stock price after the deal closes? Am I missing something here?
TEX management indicated they saw no security concerns so that was not the reason for MHPS sale. As per the TEX statement issued today, the issue for them was the ability for Zoom to finance the deal. I believe TEX demanded 32.50 and hard proof of finance to which Zoom said deal at 31 or forget it. Then TEX said we'll do you a deal ex-MHPS and waive proof of financing of the lower amount, but still wanted 32.50 equivalent on the remainder. To which Zoom responded we'll do either full or part at 31 with proof of backing or no deal. TEX failed their shareholder badly on this.
I bought in at ~19 as a speculative play on the Zoom buyout. As you suggested in another post, Zoom and TEX could end up talking again on a deal at a later date. The MHPS sales to Konecranes appears to have put a floor on the stock price. Not happy but will hold on for now.
Zoom offered 31 cash representing a 50%+ premium to the pre-offer price of TEX. TEX hmmed and hawed then said we'll take 32.50+ but we don't trust you so we'll only do this if you prove you have the cash to do the deal. Zoom said stop being so greedy we're already proposing 50% premium so it's 31 and we'll show you the money. TEX said nope, but if you are willing to buy us ex-MHPS at the 32.50 valued equivalent we'll consider that and trust you to come up with the smaller amount of cash. Zoom said #$%$ you and your monkey gaimes you dikks. Cue the lawyers shortly to sue TEX for not doing their fiduciary duty to their shareholders...
@Unfortunately, after many months of discussions, Zoomlion was unable to provide a fully financed, binding proposal for the purchase of Terex with or without MHPS.
So you delete the initial topic you posted and then blame YHOO huh. You are a piece of work indeed. Into ignore world you go.
