You mean a ring like the one Putin got? He wasn't all that impressed with it, and offered to give the team a truly luxurious ring seeing that they can't afford to spring a lousy 25k for another one.
@@@@ “You know, I don’t remember either Mr. Kraft, or the ring,” Putin said, according to Russia’s Interfax news agency, adding that he only remembers some “souvenirs.”“But if it is such a big treasure for Mr. Kraft and the team,” Putin continued with an air of sarcasm, “I have a suggestion.” His idea: to make the Patriots another ring, one so luxurious they’ll forget about the one that Kraft claims Putin pocketed during their 2005 meeting. “I will ask one of our businesses to make a really good and big thing, so everyone will see it is a luxury piece, made of quality metal and with a stone, so this piece will be passed from generation to generation in the team,” the Russian president said during a question and answer session after a major economic speech in St Petersburg. Reports from 2005 estimated its value at over $25,000.
I wonder how my little Cuban oil producer S.TO will react to this news? They, too, have oil expansion projects in the works.

@@@@(Reuters) - Shire Plc is seeking a higher takeover offer from U.S. drugmaker AbbVie Inc that would value the company at about 31 billion pounds ($53 billion), according to people familiar with the matter. Shire, which on Friday confirmed it has met with AbbVie to discuss a takeover, had asked AbbVie to sweeten its offer to close to 53 pounds per share in order to get blessing from the Dublin-based maker of drugs for rare diseases, the people said. Shire's asking price is not far above AbbVie's latest 51.15 pounds per share bid and the relative small valuation gap suggests the two sides may be getting closer to agreeing on a deal.
In the event of a buyout of SBMRY by BUD, could TAP profit from antitrust-triggered divestments? Also, will a buyout force MO to declare capital gains, or is there a way to arrange this deal so that MO keeps an equity stake in the combined company?
@@@@@Talk about a merger between Anheuser-Busch InBev (BUD) and SABMiller (SBMRY) has picked up again this summer with many industry insiders forecasting a deal between the beer giants will be completed this year or in 2015.
Do you have any analytical company or market insight to back your statement up or are you just a balloon blower-upper by trade?
Another piece of the puzzle but I still don;t understand the trade. Some firm is going to profit immensely from it, whatever it is.
@@@@@Weyerhaeuser Co.’s (NYSE: WY) short interest grew from around 60.96 million shares to more than 95.37 million in the final two weeks of the month. That was 16.6% of the float. The number of shares short has been rising since the end of March. The days to cover grew to around eight. The company is preparing to sell its homebuilding business to TRI Point Homes. Short sellers watched the share price rise more than 7% in the two-week period. Shares closed at $32.57 Thursday, in a 52-week range of $26.64 to $33.75, and up less than 6% year-to-date.
So it appears the two firms have started formal discussions.
@@@@@AbbVie (ABBV) and Shire (SHPG) are in active talks about a potential merger after AbbVie raised its takeover offer for a fourth time, Bloomberg reports, citing people with knowledge of the matter.

Oh it will get resolved all right. The question is what will existing shareholders end up with, if anything at all. No mystery about CH7/11 here or its Russian equivalents.
