Hello Grippa, hope your enjoying this long weekend. The delay has sure fueled skepticism in this merger. I'll probably be driving my old Dodge pick up for a couple more years? But I really see NO reasonable reason to squash this deal. Other than ego's of some entry level attorney in the FTC who was assigned this case and trying to make a name for him or her self. His colleagues gave the green light to TWC/Charter which is an obvious rip off of the public! Any layman will tell you that Spectrum has already begun picking there pocket. More money was spent on dining and entertainment in that deal(SPECTRUM) than the total of the HTCH/TDK deal. The FTC likes that!
Someone needs to explain to me how turning this failing entity over to TDK is bad for the consumer? They allowed TWC/Charter and the new entity "rectum" is already putting the wood to consumers! 78 billion dollar fleecing of the public! And yes Grippa little guys like us just need to hold our ankles.
Hello Grade! I think the stock price will hit our age in 2017! Let's get this puppy to 40 by July.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I say we flirt with 50! 48 or 49 ish? Open the gates fella's and let the bull out! Been impressive little run here.
That's kind of far flung but I've seen things like that happen? I purchased some RFP just under 5.50. I'm hoping to put this thing (Htch) behind me and have actually been raising cash. I just feel the next 6 months maybe tumultuous ?
Always enjoy your posts uptab!
Thanks for the kind words. We're all stuck with ya! I'm not in the same league as many posters here like Kellar and Grippa. I think the deal will be completed. I still drive an older pick up and probably will for the foreseeable future. I get chest pains when I see the price of the new ones.
I've stopped predicting the end to this madness. I've actually made 2-3 buys in last month when under 3.50. Have way too much of this stock! Best of luck to everyone.
Haven't heard from him lately and wondering if he's still holding? I've always felt there was 90% chance of the merger being completed. The long wait really makes you 2nd guess your original conviction.
I remember about 4 months ago (seems like a year) when Kellar attended the annual meeting and reported the executives and board were rather jovial about the outcome of the vote and the likelyhood of the merger. I remember the day after the stock went up about a dime if my memory serves me correct? Since then it's been like death by a million cuts waiting for a conclusion . Good weekend to everyone!
Your absolutely correct. We're on there dime. We'd like to protect our money here but have no control. GLTA
Maybe will here something in the next couple weeks?
Grippa, i believe you are correct. I think they are waiting for TDK to conform to something the FTC requested. MY GUESS? I sure hope they can meet the requirements.
I miss the old posts by Sven Karis where he would rant about the salary paid to the HR secretary. You could almost feel the veins popping out of his forehead!
Will be 7 months soon since the merger announcement.
Hope all is well Looking! Been cold here in Wisconsin kind of like CRUS stock. Gotta warm up this summer?
Take care and let's see if we can't get on upswing here. This stock builds character. Great future ahead!
Certainly a tough 3 weeks post earning. Grade I think you might have real good timing on your buy? I think Apple is attractively priced here and maybe the worst is over?
What do you make of the low short interest number? I don't remember it being much lower than 4m.?
Better days coming!
Stuck! It's been a dogfight. I bought a little more this morning. I can't see FTC putting brakes on this little deal after giving blessing to Charter/TWC merger. A deal that will certainly "put the wood" to consumers. I can't substantiate it but feel this deal will fly. I think if Penn had reason to believe the deal was in trouble he would have to divulge it? Probably Monday ? Just kidding!
Good weather here in SE Wisc.Rain tonight. Golfing tomorrow weather suppose to be high of 48 and 40MPH winds predicted. Frost Saturday night.
