Seems there are plenty of private companies in this fragmented market that could be acquired at a good value. Not that RGR and SWHC are not also cheap right now. Does VSTO have the cheap capital to do it?
Caught a bluefin tuna 3 wks ago (about 130#) and picked a bucket of fat oysters last week. Nor'easter roared through the last few days so stayed indoors. Life is good. Have shifted into mostly stable Div Growth investments that I don't have to sweat over. Realised that I am not so good at stock picking or market timing. Too many 'moving parts' in ORB/ATK. Retired Amigo.
I'm out of this long-term soap opera/yawner but I learned alot about gold mine development, Venezuelan politics, geography and ICSID. Now I can erase those brain cells or kill them off. Thanks to agtavy, the vet and all others who faithfully and knowledgeably reported on this interesting venture. Maybe I will check out this board from time to time to see what turns up. I'm guessing that any cash received from VZ, China or whoever will be siphoned into insider pockets over the next 10 years. Good luck to holders and sellers and insiders!
