Sheet happens. Stock holders still have to approve for example. Deal doesn't close until first half of 2014. Would you tie up good money for a 19¢ return on an $11 stock if you weren't already in it?
Record spending by tourists has helped Greece post its first current account surplus since official data began.
Figures from the Bank of Greece showed the difference between the money going into and coming out of the country was 1.24bn euros (£1bn) last year.
It was partly driven by a 15% increase in tourism receipts, the country's biggest earner.
The surplus was the first for the recession-hit economy since records began in 1948.

Harvard Study on Solar Cell Externaliities
"Each stage in the production cycle of solar cells—whether it be monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon, amorphous silicon, cadmium telluride, and copper indium selenide/sulfide, the manufacture generates a waste stream and carries multiple hazards for health and the environment. These costs are external to the solar industry and thus are often considered as “externalities.” We estimate that the life cycle effects of solar cell production and the waste stream generated are costing the U.S. public a third to over one-half of a trillion dollars annually. Many of these so-called externalities are, moreover, cumulative. Accounting for the damages conservatively doubles to triples the price of electricity from solar per kWh generated, making coal, along with investments in efficiency and electricity conservation methods, economically competitive.”
Someone heard somewhere that ACI will be $20 tomorrow and that a massive earthquake will strike in California. I just wouldn't count on it.
On the contrary. These people are wonderful human beings. They work for a pittance and have only the interests of the shareholders in mind. They are first and foremost philanthropists of the highest order.
Ditto! Did exactly the same. It went too low on the Sears news. Expecting a pop Monday, market conditions permitting.
Could it be yesterday's Zacks article:
'In order to boost 3G, 4G and WiFi speed as well as to offer better network coverage, Alcatel Lucent teamed up with Qualcomm last year to develop multimode small cell sites.'
'However, delay in the launch of multi-mode small cell products may mar Qualcomm’s growth prospects as companies like Ericsson (ERIC) and Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO) are on the verge of launching similar products.'
I think it will recover today.
Apparently, there was a similar 'solar lull' in the mid 18th century. It lasted about 45 years and caused what's referred to as a mini ice age where the Thames froze over each winter. The thinking is that the lack of sunspot activity shifted the jet stream, causing a similar effect to the cold snap visited on the east coast recently.
Something's weird on Yahoo. Close at $6.02, then it shows AH of $5.10 up 17¢??
