Flaherty fired. Never though much of him from day one when he replaced Roarke. Flaherty has a Wall Street background and Roarke was very big on catering to the Wall Street types. When Roarke was CEO and he was a good one, he used to make the men wear sports coats or suits and ties and women dresses when they went to lunch with him. Obviously that was years ago but even at that time in Los Angeles, where HCP was then based a lot of management types dressed business casual at lunch.
This was obvious when the deal was done. All one had to do was find out the headcount of the acquired company. The cost was available at the time the acquisition was filed. DWCH has been a great stock but the company and its products are still mediocre. Then again for those that made a bundle off it congratulations to them. After all investing is about making money not buying stock in good companies. Lots of #$%$ companies have had a stratospheric price run in their stock making the smart trader an exceptional return. Always has happened and always will. One just needs to understand the psychology that drives the stock price upward despite the company itself being lousy.
