I was going to take my family to Turkey for the 2012 event since I read that Turkey was the safest place to hide out. It was going to be a Christmas vacation. My family was very excited about it and my wife kept telling me how great I am for doing this for my family. She kept saying I was so handsome and good looking that she was going to let her twin sister sleep with me so she could have a taste of perfect love making too. Her sister is a absolutely gorgeous and extremely sensual. And then...BANG...I woke up with the dog liking my face. WHAT! My wife doesn't even have a sister!
tau - no offense but when one starts to know the inane YMB workings it might be time to step away from the keyboard. LOL interesting factoid though, cheers
Actually, the happiest person will either be Joe Bidden or Billy himself. Joe for getting another shot at POTUS spot and Billy so he can stay a little under the radar and keep his mistresses, although he won't get another shot at getting some in the WH from another intern. Oh well, maybe it is Bidden.
I know there'll be a group crowing"newbie this happens all the time" but the fact is it really doesn't. And when it does it was for a reason, a carefully crafted reason and done in such a way that it doesn't come back on the 'leaker.'
So, How? Easy to leak info but not so easy in a none back-fire proof way. It leads to 'who" was in the know and who benefits. Denner and his team clearly are the obvious folks but so could the BXTL folks (delay/speed their own BO issues). Or just some large holders of calls but that is too easily traced. Um???
Why? Could it have been done to get other parties involved, to add pressure to the negotiation talks, and to max the BO pps? Absolutely! Or is it just another rumor done to pop the price for someone to get out? If the latter, then why not wait until the price climbed a bit more before springing the rumor mill trap? Fear that the mkt might dip further after a solid week's rebound and take ARIA down to lower levels?
I hope the longs, myself included, don't get trapped liked last time when we heard the British tabloid rumors and it sank like a rock. I'm staying strong and holding. Hope to see you at +15 soon. My wife and our 12K shares are too. GLTA longs!!!! Monday should be interesting either way.
enjoy the weekend, good luck w NVAX and in general
2 scenarios: a) deal goes through now/next few days b) deal doesn't happen now, Denner announces a new CEO and deal happens in next 6 months. Deal will happen.
(scenario I don't dare utter: BO rumor drives pps, Denner exits, stock plummets = I cry. And since this is baseball, we don't cry!)
round numbers are used when telling someone anything that should by all rights NOT be spoken. I'm actually a little nervous w all the rumors now. Doesn't seem right. I'm long for 2 yrs so don't accuse me of bashing but this is definitely odd.
no wonder it was rejected?!!?! LOL Meg said around 2B not exactly 2B and besides, folks don't say it was a $2,456.432 offer when discussing rumor that they should NOT be discussing. All of this is still rumor at this point but it does seem sound. we'll see very soon.
agreed. not germane as just a discussion. talks happen all the time. could you imagine if every discussion was published? talk about chaos in the mkt.
hard to say where that leads us. Sounded like BXTL is doing it as defensive deal to stop a BO. also mentioned a CEO might be imminent. Meg is a cutie!
